ellen and alex | tie the knot | the foundation for the carolinas

Happy Labor Day weekend! I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for cooler days, pumpkins and sweater weather. 

I feel like this summer flew by, and fall weddings are right around the corner. So let's enjoy the last of the summer days with one of my favorite summer weddings at The Foundation for the Carolinas.

Ellen, an attorney and Alex, a computer guy who moonlights as a musician (or perhaps it's the other way around!) live right outside of New York City but chose to have their wedding in Charlotte- where Ellen grew up. Side note: oddly enough, Alex actually grew up not too far from my husband in Long Island and actually went to the same high school as him-- just a few years a part. Small world!

If you can't tell, Ellen wanted color, color and more color. Classic and simple in linens and attire (black and white) with a huge pop color in the floral. I think we delivered!

My highlight of the night? When Alex and his equally musically-inclined cousin, Julie sang with the band. Ah-mazing!

Because of the distance as well as Ellen's hectic work schedule, I got to work closely with Ellen's parents, Kathy and Bob, during the planning process...and what a treat they were! Seriously - I am so lucky for attracting some pretty awesome clients and their families.

Please enjoy some photos from Ellen and Alex's day, courtesy of the talented (and not mention kindest couple, Candace and Dan) at The Beautiful Mess Photography.
