Ellie + Matt – Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Engagement

When I met Ellie via phone for the first time, we clicked immediately.  We soon realized we had so much in common, and I can’t thank Elizabeth Webb from Hall & Webb Event Design for connecting us!  I absolutely love when I connect with my brides on a personal level and we immediately become friends.   Ellie and Matt are so sweet together. These college sweethearts are getting married next June at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in a classic affair.  We decided to do their engagement photos there as well and the garden was stunning that morning! Here are some faves from their session.

Foundation for the Carolinas Wedding – Ashley + Andrew

My goodness Ashley is stunning. I had been so excited all year for her and Andrew’s classic uptown Charlotte wedding.  We had the perfect (albeit HOT!) September day, and everything went off without  a hitch.  The Foundation for the Carolinas has become one of my favorite wedding venues in the city.  The ceremony location with huge floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city was to-die-for.  And how can you not love the big green “live wall” in the courtyard? It’s the perfect backdrop for photos.  It was a true pleasure working with Ashley and Andrew and their gracious families and friends.  Here are some favorite images from their sweet day.

Duke Mansion Wedding – Courtney + Will

This was such a fun wedding. Courtney and Will are SO easy going, and made this day so enjoyable for me. Courtney’s smile lights up a room, and I didn’t see it disappear from her face all day.  Her gown with pockets and asymmetrical adorned strap was to die for, and her wedding ring — which was her grandmother’s from 60+ years ago —  was the perfect vintage touch. Here are some favorite from their Myers Park soiree.

Moraine Farm, Beverly MA Wedding – Vicki + Adam

Vicki and Adam’s wedding oozed New England charm.  They were married on a gorgeous, crisp June afternoon at the Estate at Moraine Farm in Beverly, Massachusetts, a beautiful historic home set among gardens along the shore of Wenham Lake.  Hydrangeas, peonies and baby’s breath were prevelant everywhere – from the bouquets to the centerpieces in milk glass vases that lined wood farm tables.  Vicki and Adam both smiled ear to ear all day — their happiness was contagious, and it was such an honor to share this day with them.
