Charlotte Wedding Photography: Ella and Blaine

Ella and Blaine first met as youngsters when they lived next door to each other and their families became close friends.

They reconnected years later after college, which led up to their beautiful wedding at Temple Beth-El and later a celebration at Providence Country Club.

Thank you to the fine staff at Providence Country Club and planner Chelsey Sanderson of Charlotte Fete for all of their excellent planning and work. Lily Greenthumbs provided the gorgeous flowers and the band The Men of Distinction got everyone dancing.

And Ella's father Yossi did an amazing job playing Hava Nagila on his accordion during the Hora.

Company photographer Laura Mueller and apprentice photographer John Gomez worked hard to make sure we had all of the angles covered.

Mazel Tov to Ella and Blaine!
