This weekend, we kicked off our wedding season with the wonderful celebration of Chris and Leah at the Hilton Charlotte University Place. I got the chance to know these two a couple of months ago when I photographed their engagement session, and I knew their wedding was going to be so much fun!

Leah flaunted her sense of style with some killer Gianni Bini rhinestone heels, a to-die-for 1920's style feather fascinator, and not one, but two wedding dresses. But even without all of those things, Leah would have been beautiful because her excitement to be marrying the love of her life radiated from her like sunbeams. It's always telling of a couple's personalities and relationship to hear their friends and family speak about them, and I can tell you that Chris and Leah's loved ones had only beautiful things to say about these two.

There is no greater compliment a photographer can receive than to have someone refer you to their friends, and I was thrilled whenever bridesmaid Thesha from Ashleigh and LeMar's wedding last fall told her friend Leah that she should book us, too!

Leah and Chris are such a sweet couple, and I was even more excited about their wedding when I found out Leah was from New Orleans. We bonded over talk of cajun food, Cafe du Monde beignets (the BEST!), and our mutual fandom for the Saints, and it was such a pleasure to have the chance to get to know her mom, sister, and niece, as well.

It's not often that I get the chance to work in Charlotte, and it was so much fun getting to photograph a new area. We started off the engagement session in Fourth Ward Park with a little football...
