The Ritz Carlton Charlotte Wedding – Maggie + JR
Today is a good day! Not only is today the day that I get to share Maggie and JR’s wedding day at The Ritz Charlotte, but it’s the day we get to see it featured on Carats and Cake! For the full feature, click here!
We had the best day with this sweet couple and have so enjoyed getting to know them. Here are just a few of my favorite moments/things about their day:
+ Preceding her first look with JR, Maggie decided to do a first look with both her brothers and her dad. It was so sweet and might have even flashed me forward to what it might be like on our daughter Crew’s wedding day with her brothers. :)
+ After all of their bridal party had made their way down the aisle for the processional, there was a quiet moment…a pause…maybe even an extended pause….before Maggie came through the door. You could see JR’s nerves melt away into relief the second he caught her glance. These small, seemingly insignificant moments are what make a wedding day so incredibly special for us to photograph!
+ Their first dance was amazing. Like, the most amazing first dance that I’ve ever seen…and I’ve seen a lot of them!
+ Their A+ vendor team! See below for this line-up!
Maggie and JR – the biggest congratulations to you both! We wish you so much happiness together. xoxo.
