If I Was A Bride

I probably will never have another big wedding again … I’ve been there, done that in my 20’s … but Carolina Bride reached out to me and I caved!  The challenge was IF I was a bride (being a vendor in the Charlotte Wedding Industry), what would you choose to do?!

IF (big IF) I were a bride again and I had to choose vendors in Charlotte, it would be the hardest part for me since there is SO MUCH amazing TALENT in our industry here.  I called my partner in crime, Ivy Robinson of Ivy Robinson Events and we got to work.  Our styles are similar and she knows what I like and dislike so I rattled off my ideal color pallate and that was that!!

Jay at Indigo Photography shot all of the amazing looks that we came up with and I am sharing them here with you today!

Mimi & Ross

I had SO much fun working with Mimi this past spring on her amazingly beautiful wedding.  She came to me with her EXACT vision in mind and I was more than happy to bring her ideas to life!  Her groom trusted her vision and I think I nailed it …. Take a look at these STUNNING photos from the talented Lauren Rosenau Photography.  If you’re in the market for a fun photographer with a true talent {and who shoots in film – wowza} she’s your girl.

Check it out!
