“Valentine’s Day…one day later…”
The year I photographed my first wedding.
I thought I had seen it all.
Boy was I wrong.
Charlotte, North Carolina was a beautiful blanket of snow beginning Wednesday, February 12th. Schools were out. Business were closed. Employees on the trading floor at Well Fargo were required to stay uptown in hotels in order to keep things operating (we are of course 2nd to NYC in banking) and…
Ashleigh and Mike prayed.
Little did we know that (in some spots) 10+ inches of snow (with layers of ice mixed in) would end up falling through Thursday, Feburary 13th…debilitating thousands. Including wedding professionals.
And so, Ashleigh and Mike were faced with one very hard decision. Move the wedding from her most favorite holiday of the year (since she was an itty bitty girl) to the next day.
By the grace of God we were ALL available. The venue (Foundation for the Carolina’s), my wingman (Steve), the planner (Favor Me Events), the rentals, the cake, the makeup/hair (Lindsey Regan Thorne), the videography (Crown Alley), the flowers, the DJ (Split Second Sound) and the stationer (Olive Paper).
What a blessing!
Saturday, February 15th. The sun shined down, the temperatures mildly brisk and the love was over flowing.
What a story to tell the kids and grandkids.
