Charlotte Wedding Photography: Lauren and Jeff


Lauren and Jeff were married at Saint Gabriel Catholic Church on a spectacular fall day in Charlotte.

The bride looked amazing in her white silk dress from Ines Di Santo.

Adding to the day were beautiful flowers from The Blossom Shop and an incredible cake from Haines Barksdale of For Goodness Cakes. The staff at Charlotte Country Club did their usual superb job and Big Ray and the Kool Kats kept the party going all night long.

Thanks to Adam Coker for his photography help and it was great to work with makeup artist Adrian Howe of the Beauty Sophisticate and videographer Amanda Pagano of Isabel's Corner.

Congratulations all!
