We’ve been very fortunate to photograph some incredible weddings during the past few months.
Jackie and Stuart’s wedding in Charlotte Saturday included all of the elements needed for a great event. Great people, excellent venues and talented wedding professionals. Also in abundant supply was something that sometimes gets overlooked – fun.
I first got to know Jackie and Stu at their engagement party at Providence Country Club in March. They were so easy to work with and I saw first-hand their love of family and laughter. Earlier this month, we did Jackie’s bridal portrait session at the Duke Mansion.
I knew going in that this was going to be a special day with some amazing moments. Stuart’s father, the Rev. Arthur Ford Fogartie, led the service and was helped by Catholic priest, the Rev. Patrick’s Cahill, from Jackie’s church. Stuart’s grandfather, the Rev. James Eugene Fogartie, was pastor at Myers Park Presbyterian for almost 20 years.
Our company photographer, Laura Mueller, worked as a second photographer and helped document a full day of activities. We ended up with so many great images that I decided to split this wedding into two blog posts.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for images from the reception and many more details from this beautiful affair at the Ballantyne Resort Hotel.
I have to give a special mention to wedding coordinator Jennifer Wouters of Soiree Charlotte. She helped coordinate a multitude of people who helped make this day.
It was so refreshing to work with Jackie and Stu and their families – people who all know how to have fun.
