It was a great pleasure documenting an amazing wedding weekend for Elizabeth and Brad and their families.
The couple lives in New York City but Elizabeth’s parents live in Charlotte and people traveled from far and wide to celebrate.
After the rehearsal at
Belk Chapel Friday, everyone moved to Charlotte City Club for a wonderful dinner hosted by Brad’s parents.
Dina Berg Blazek did a fantastic job helping coordinate the events with her team of Amy Horack, Debra Hall and intern Kristen Lew. Our company photographer Laura Mueller was a huge help and captured some beautiful images.
The entire weekend was a delightful family event with much involvement from grandparents, parents, siblings and assorted cousins and other relatives. Elizabeth’s minister grandfather Denny led the service and the wedding party included Elizabeth’s two brothers and sister and Brad’s sister and father.
Following the wedding at Belk Chapel, the group headed to the Quail Hollow Club for a magnificent meal and night of dancing and fun.
Thank you to Elizabeth, Brad and their families.
Cheers and have an amazing time in South Africa!
