brittany and barrett | tie the knot | byrons south end

Brittany wanted pink, pink and more pink. Barrett wanted Brittany to be happy. Good man!
But I think it is safe to say that we were able to make both of them happy as we took their vision of romantic softness and brought it to life. Think sequins, draping, lush florals and candles. Lots and lots of candles.

This sweet couple was married in June at The Design Center of the Carolinas, followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing at Byrons South End.

alison and curt | tie the knot | charlotte city club

Alison and Curt may live in Washington, DC- but they happily chose Charlotte as their wedding location. Many couples wonder if it is possible to live in one city and plan a wedding in another. And the answer is yes, yes, yes! Of course, a planner (ahem) is helpful- but it is certainly feasible!

Simple and classic, Alison wanted soft tones for her black tie June wedding. A church ceremony kicked off the wedding day at Myers Park Methodist Church and then guests headed to The Charlotte City for cocktails, dinner and dancing.

Thank you to all of the vendors who made this night memorable!

anna and jonathan | tie the knot | the duke mansion

I have been dy-ing to share these images with you from Anna and Jonathan's magnolia-themed Duke Mansion wedding from May.

These two couldn't be any sweeter. Having met at Elon University, Jonathan surprised Anna with a proposal during Elon's Homecoming weekend.

Being that both ceremony and reception were outside at the Duke, Anna wanted to embrace the surrounding gardens at the Duke Mansion by incorporating magnolias into her design. Because weather was a concern, Anna and Jonathan decided to take part in an old wives' tale by burying a bottle of bourbon upside-down at the wedding venue weeks before the wedding. On wedding day (a gorgeous, sunny day I may add), Anna and Jonathan dug the bottle back up and maaaaaay have taken a sip. Or two.

Please enjoy some of my favorite images from Lauren Rosenau Photography.































Thank you to all of the vendors who made this night a success!
