Holy. Moly. I loved this wedding so much. I had the absolute best time getting to know Chris and Kristin over the last several months as they planned their destination Charlotte wedding from Atlanta. (If you missed their engagement session, make sure to check it out here!) They chose Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, which is one of the most beautiful Charlotte area wedding venues. Theirs was going to be an intimate ceremony among their closest friends and family, and I’m so grateful they let me be part of it!
What I might never forget- the Saturday before this wedding (which was a Sunday), there was a 100% chance of rain the next day. It was supposed to rain all. day. long. I checked the weather as soon as I woke up Sunday, and, miraculously, there was literally no rain in the forecast. Not only that. By the time we were set to do the first look, we had clear blue skies. It was the most perfect miracle for the sweetest couple.
As if clear skies weren’t enough, let’s just chat about the details of this day real quick. First of all, that color palette (insert heart eye emoji’s here). I absolutely loved the bright peachy tones of this day. They contrasted so well with navy blue. And let’s all just give a massive round of applause to Kristen of Vintage Soul Floral Design. This lady KILLED these florals. I love this lady and her work, and she blew me away. Literally, I could not stop staring at that bouquet. I also got to work with such an amazing planning team in Lisa Pleasant Events. They helped the day run so smoothly! They made sure Chris and Kristin got to enjoy some of their cocktail hour, and it’s always so fun being able to see a bride and groom enjoy relaxed time visiting with their close friends and family!
There’s a lot more I could probably say, but I think the fact that this couple was checking on us throughout the day, making sure we were ok, speaks volumes about the kind of people they are. So sweet and warm, and I’m just so thankful their day turned out so perfectly! Chris and Kristin, you’re a beautiful and incredibly kind couple, and I wish nothing but the best for you both! I hope Costa Rica was a dream!
