Charlotte Wedding Photography: Merritt and Tucker


Merritt and Tucker's wedding celebration was about all of the wonderful things that make weddings so special.

The day, and night, were full of family, faith and celebration.

The elegant wedding at Myers Park Presbyterian Church was followed by a magnificent party at Charlotte Country Club.

Merritt and her mother Page worked extensively with Kelly Randazzo of Walton Event Design and Kelli Taddonio at the club and they all crafted an incredible setting and event. Meredith Stillman of Walton Event Design was on hand as well to help everything run smoothly.

From the unique,  stylish custom dance floor to the amazing flowers from Ted Todd at The Blossom Shop, everything worked together to create a spectacular evening. Other touches included a masterpiece from Kathy Allen Fine Cakes, lighting touches from Wink Lighting and rousing music from Atlanta Rythm & Groove of East Coast Entertainment.

Thank you to our talented company photographer Laura Mueller and another acclaimed photojournalist, Todd Sumlin, for helping make sure we had all of the angles covered.

It was a pleasure working with both of these wonderful families.

Congratulations Merritt and Tucker!
