Charlotte Wedding Photography: Sarah and John


Sarah and John had an amazing wedding weekend in Charlotte that included a beautiful rehearsal dinner at The Duke Mansion followed by the wedding at Myers Park Methodist Church and a wonderful reception at Charlotte Country Club.
John's mother Emily hosted the rehearsal dinner at Duke Mansion and added her design touch to the event with a floral assist from Jay at In Bloom. Thanks also to Duke Mansion's Katie Perrin for all of her help.
Dr. James Howell led the beautiful service at Myers Park Methodist before everyone headed to Charlotte Country Club to celebrate.
The setting was amazing with flowers from The Blossom Shop and a masterpiece cake from Kathy Allen of Cakes of Distinction. May Chrisman and the staff at Charlotte Country Club are always a pleasure to work with. And our talented company photographer Laura Mueller came through again with some beautiful images.
Setting the tone all night was the incredible band Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters.
Congratulations to Sarah, John and their families!
