meagan and alex | tie the knot | byron's south end

Dreamy. That is really the only way to accurately describe Meagan and Alex's all white wedding from this past November. 

The evening ceremony was held at The Design Center of the Carolinas with pre-ceremony champagne, full draping and candles. Lots of candles. Cocktails, dinner and dancing continued at Byron's South End.

Being from New Orleans originally, Meagan wanted to add touches from her home town - complete with a second line exit and a beignet truck.

rachel and jordan | tie the knot | foundation for the carolinas

Happy 2017! While it's a new year and we are busy planning for this year's weddings- I am still receiving photos from some of the Fall 2016 weddings. It's like Christmas all over!

Rachel and Jordan met in law school and have been together ever since. They got married in October at Foundation for the Carolinas with no lack of color (as you will see in the photos!). 

Rachel loves vibrant colors and wanted to incorporate art work created by her mother. We were able to use a floral painting that was introduced in the invite and then used again as their ceremony back drop. Not only did this add a unique one-of-a-kind piece to the wedding, it was even more special that Rachel's mother painted the piece....and they were able to hang it in their home post wedding.

Please enjoy some images from this crazy fun day (this group knew how to party- confetti cannons, 'treat yo self' signs and all!) by Bluesky by Cass Bradley.

katherine and michael | tie the knot | the duke mansion

I will be honest - I love the Duke Mansion. It's simplistic, Southern and just down right gorgeous. And as much as I looooove the Fall-- there is something so magical about the Duke while the gardens are in bloom.

Katherine and Michael's September Duke Mansion wedding was no exception. While these two call NYC home (notice the custom taxi cab treats) , they decided to get married in Charlotte, where Katherine grew up. Because it was a 'destination wedding' for many - they ended up taking advantage of their relatively smaller guest count of 65 attendees, and having an intimate dinner on the terrace- under market lights and stars.

Goes to prove that bigger isn't always better when it comes to wedding guest count.

Please enjoy some of my favorite images from Caroline Petters Photography, represented by Katie Osgood Photography.
