The goal of this balloon inspired styled wedding was to create a fresh feel on wedding decor and give brides some inspiration outside of floral decor. Charlotte’s top balloon designer came on board to bring our vision to life with a circular balloon arbor, which was accented with greenery and gold hoops. The balloon and […]

Emily and Blake’s wedding at The Lace House has me swooning!  This historic venue, and it’s exquisite gardens, was breathtaking!  This sweet couple have been married for 15 years, but never got their big wedding.  Emily finally got the wedding of her dreams and their vow renewal brought us all to tears! Emily and Blake first […]

During the winter months, I set aside time to work with vendors in organizing styled shoots to highlight and market their venues and crafts.  However, I always make time for my own styled session, whether it’s a spur of the moment idea or one that takes months of planning! This year, my personal styled shoot […]

Anne Marie and Zach are the sweetest couple you’ll […]

Hunter and Rob’s fairytale wedding, at the Laboratory Mill, is one I will never forget.  Their romantic love story should be the inspiration for the next Nicholas Sparks novel.  The decor was exquisite, the gown was magazine worthy, and the touching moments made us all cry. The wedding party was also one of my favorites.  […]

Rebekah always knew she wanted a Christmas wedding and her special day was nothing short of magical.  The decor for this entire wedding and reception would have blown the Christmas town of McAdenville out of the water.  Christmas trees lit up the entire church and I felt as though I was a photographer on the […]

“Why would you wanna marry me for anyhow?  So I can kiss you anytime I want.” Anne Marie’s favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama and she wanted to incorporate this into a portrait.  So, she brought along an adorable wooden sign with the famous line.  I had the most fun working with these two love […]

Bree and Jake’s Christmas themed wedding was absolutely magical.  Her stunning lace gown, the pops of red, and the intimate moments made this wedding one of my December favorites. The girls looked amazing in their matching flannels.  Add in some fake snow and you’ve got yourself the cutest shots.  After capturing some sweet getting ready […]
