autumn wedding at the dairy barn | jeremy + courtney

Jeremy and Courtney’s wedding was certainly one for the books! It was clear that every decision they made about their big day, down to the very last detail, was made with their relationship in mind. Jeremy proposed to Courtney by making a fake “Chance” card and slipped it in the stack during a game of Monopoly, so their centerpieces were handmade Monopoly properties! The flower arrangements were vibrant and eclectic by Ribald Farms and fit their southern-charm theme perfectly! Since a lot of their guests traveled from out of town, their favors were *delicious* cookies from the local Peach Stand. One thing about Jeremy and Courtney’s wedding that stood out to us was just how much fun everyone had : ) Joey from One Stop Live kept the party going at the reception late into the night- when “last-call” for shuttles back to the hotel was announced, only 2 people got on, haha! Everyone was just having a blast celebrating with the sweet couple. Enjoy a bunch of our favorites from Jeremy and Courtney’s wedding, and see a complete list of their vendors at the bottom of the post!

charlotte wedding at the big chill | chris + amy

What a fun wedding! Our initial consultation with Chris and Amy was long-distance via Skype- we clicked instantly. We had a blast with them at their engagement session, and by the time their wedding day rolled around, we were ecstatic to capture their big day. Amy and her bridesmaids got ready at The Holiday Inn Center City, with hair and makeup exquisitely crafted by Lindsey Regan Thorne “b e p r e t t y.” Their ceremony and reception both took place at The Big Chill near uptown Charlotte, a venue that truly lent itself to Chris and Amy’s fun-loving personalities. Immediately after the ceremony, we shuttled to the nearby Midtown Park for some sunset family, bridal party and couples’ photos. The reception was full of sincere excitement and celebration from everyone- we truly felt the love in the room during Chris and Amy’s dances with each other and their parents, and especially during the toasts given by family and friends. We provided a Fun Photo Wall at Chris & Amy’s reception, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all! But Brian and I agree the sweetest part of the whole night was the newlyweds inviting us out for drinks after their horse-drawn carriage getaway! It’s rare to find such a genuine connection with another couple after only having known them a short while, but we adore the new Mr. & Mrs. Sullivan and couldn’t be happier for them!
