Meet Lauren + Oli…
The last three weeks with Lauren and Oli have been utterly fantastic. Engagements, Bridal then Wedding Day…all within four days of each other. The glorious post production phase has been a dream. Wedding uploaded. Slideshow done. Proof book ordered. Storybook designed and waiting approval from the bride and groom – all in less than a month. I LOVE EFFICIENCY!
Designed and produced by the oh-so-talented, Ivy Robinson, I knew the moment I set foot in the door magic would be abound. Poof! It was. There wasn’t one corner left untouched. She and the IRWE Team transformed the main ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton Charlotte from it’s existing yellow and brown color palette to a chic and swanky mixture of whites, purples and metallic’s. It was simply delicious!
To the beautiful, Lauren and Oli. THANK YOU!! Our journey together (even in this short period of time) has touched me greatly. I feel like I have accomplished the ultimate challenge – receiving the follow up phone call from the mother-of-the-bride crying about how beautiful and perfect everything turned out. I cried right alongside of her, knowing that one day I would be her…a mommy that loves her baby girl, and has been remarkably blessed to see her grow into the beautiful woman that she has become. Breathe….
To my wingman, Steve…this was a fun one, huh!! Despite Ivy’s insistence to, “TURN OFF THE LIGHTS!” we managed to get it and get it right!! (Still loving you, Ivy!!) Richard + Timm – y’all were a BLAST! We must do it again. Lindsey Regan Thorne – what beauties you enhanced. Simply Mah-velous, Dahling! And Lizzy-Lou…I-Love-u!
I have photographed hundreds of weddings. The first look…what a pure moment!
When they didn’t think we were watching…
Gonna get married…
“Greetings, Ballroom…nice to meet you!”
