alice and biff {tie the knot} the ritz urban garden

Alice is a Jersey girl. Biff is from Louisiana. Alice is a pastry chef. Biff works in finance.
Yet, they are perfect for each other.

You may remember this adorable couple from their e-session photos: here.

Alice and Biff were married on May 18th in an evening ceremony at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church {not before seeing each other in an intimate and sweet first look, which was captured below}.

The black-tie affair continued in to the wee hours of the morning {1:30am to be exact} at The Ritz Urban Garden in Uptown Charlotte.

Macaroons were given as favors as well as adorned the five-tier cake as an ode to Alice's culinary days in France.

The band, Sol Fusion, was phenomenal. Seriously. The band combined with custom Wayfarer sunglasses made for a packed dance floor the.whole.night.long.

Please enjoy some images from the uber-talented Dan and Candice Lanning from The Beautiful Mess Photography, who captured Alice and Biff's day beautifully.

Also, a very special thank you to all of the vendors that made this night a success!
