Jessica and David’s wedding day was so sweet and intimate.  The soft blush and whites created a classic look and every detail reflected their path to one another. These two had quite an emotional wedding journey and struggled with the idea of keeping their original wedding date since David’s family would have to fly into […]

An uncertain wedding journey ended exactly where this sweet couple wanted their special day to be – overlooking the breathtaking scenery at High Vista. Matthew and Liza were forced to make many changes due to COVID.  They first moved away from their dream venue and agreed to have a safer, backyard wedding.  Then two months […]

This Gingerbread Meeting House wedding has got me swooning!  I love this wedding not only because I’m obsessed with all things blush, but also because of this sweet couple.  Their story and their spirit has truly captured my heart. It brings me so much joy to love and serve my couples and it’s a bonus […]

This Baker Buffalo Creek wedding was nothing short of a fairytale!  Kristen and Glenn met while working on one of Charlotte’s top realtor teams.  As they were joined together on their wedding day, their children (and new puppy) stood by their sides. Although their wedding was postponed one month due to the current pandemic, it […]

I’m struggling to find the right words for this post… Patty (Carolina Roses) and I have been working together for many years and we love collaborating on sessions and weddings together.

[…]

Krysta’s Point Lookout bridal session was a dream in every way!  We had been battling constant storms leading up to her session, but the morning of she said she had a feeling the weather would clear. Krysta was very close with her grandmother, who passed away just a couple of weeks before the session.  She […]

This Forest View Manor bridal session has stolen my heart!  There were moments during the session that felt like a Charleston plantation, but this beautiful manor sits in our small Southern town! Miranda’s session took place in the middle of the pandemic and it’s a miracle that we made it happen!  She was able to […]

With trends changing so rapidly, I believe were going to see a rise in more nontraditional weddings. Who says you have to spend thousands on a fancy gown and a huge reception to have the wedding of your dreams? Brides are getting more creative with their styles and are merging traditions to create a more […]
