Charlotte Wedding Photography: Isabelle and Stephen

Isabelle and Stephen married in a beautiful ceremony at Myers Park Presbyterian Church before heading to Myers Park Country Club to celebrate with family and friends.

Many thanks to Woozie Dell of Social Graces for all of her help and to the staff at Myers Park Country Club. And thank you to our company photographer Laura Mueller who was on hand to keep all of the angles covered.

The Blossom Shop did a beautiful job with the flowers and the reception included two incredible cakes. Kathy Allen Fine Cakes created the stunning wedding cake and Haines Barksdale of For Goodness Cakes made the groom's cake, an amazing homage to Uga, the mascot of Stephen's alma mater Georgia.

Congratulations to Isabelle and Stephen and their families!

Winston and Trevor married at on a beautiful June day at Christ Church and moved to Charlotte Country Club for a spectacular celebration.

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.

Salisbury Wedding Photography: Meredith and Philip

Meredith and Philip married in the Omwake-Dearborn Chapel on the campus of Catawba College in Salisbury before moving to a wonderful celebration at Boxwood Estate.

Their families have deep roots in the Salisbury area and both the bride and groom's parents  married in the same church.  Philip's grandfather's restored pickup truck added another nice touch to the vintage feel of the day, which capped off with an incredible party at the estate, which was established in 1933 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Dina Berg Blazek and her staff worked closely with Meredith and her mother Lynn to create a magical feel to the entire event. The spectacular tent on the Boxwood grounds was an amazing setting for the dinner and party.

Thanks to our Company Photographer Laura Mueller and apprentice photographer John Gomez for all of their great work.

Congratulations to Meredith, Philip and their families!

Blowing Rock Wedding Photography: Camilla and Will

Camilla and Will were joined by family and friends in scenic Blowing Rock for a glorious wedding event.

The nuptials took place at historic Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church and the celebration moved to Blowing Rock Country Club.

Following the ceremony, Camilla's father Emery drove his classic car to a few sentimental spots for Camilla, including a spectacular mountain backdrop where her grandparents used to go to watch the sunset in the summer months.

Thanks as always to our talented Company Photographer Laura Mueller, who made the trek up the mountain to help us cover all of the important moments. And a special thanks to Camilla's brother Emery for driving my car up the mountain.

And congratulations to this wonderful couple and their families!

Charlotte Wedding Photography: Meg and Ty

The setting at Quail Hollow Club was a beautiful backdrop for family and friends as Meg and Ty married on a picture perfect June evening.

Careful planning and some well-placed shade made for great conditions for the outdoor ceremony before the party moved inside for a lively celebration.

Planner Dina Berg Blazek and her staff coordinated everything with the Quail Hollow personnel and Meg and her mother Peggy.  Jay of In Bloom created some beautiful florals and Haines Barksdale of For Goodness Cakes made a delicious dessert.

My friend, the talented photographer Richard Israel, helped to make sure we had all of the angles covered along with our apprentice photographer John Gomez.

Congratulations to Meg, Ty and their wonderful families!
