Sarah and Giovanni’s uptown Charlotte wedding was help on June 1, 2013. The ceremony was held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church and the reception was held at Roof With a View. Whiskey Warehouse served as a way stop between the early ceremony and the reception. Sarah planned and designed her entire wedding and the entire day went without a hitch, well, except the hitching that matters! 🙂 The weather on this beautiful spring day could not have been better as family and friends made this one amazing wedding to film!
On October 05, 2013 Ryan and Chantele Hale began their new life together as husband and wife. The ceremony was held at the Coker Ranch, near Lancaster, SC. With a beautiful view of the property from the bridal suite, Chantele began her day with her mother and friends surrounding her as Pink Warrior Makeup Artistry did her makeup and her friend from work (both hairdressers) made her hair look amazing!
The men, camped out in the rustic “bunk house”, helped Ryan look the part for his awaiting bride.
Ryan and Chantele exchanged a “first look” at the base of the stairs in the main house. It was definitely a magical moment. The look on Ryan’s face, the love and adoration in his eyes, was priceless!
The afternoon ceremony by the lake could not have been more amazing! From the moment “Mom & Dad” walked their beautiful daughter down the aisle through the exchange of rings and kisses, the day could not have been more perfect!
Moments following the wedding, we were able to capture our lovely bride and groom by the lake with an amazing sunset, as if on cue!
The reception made for a wonderful evening with DJ Cindy Kay at the helm! The guests were in awe of the first dance and parent dances. Flowers and garters were thrown as dancing overtook the night.
The cake cutting was one of my favorites as our “sweet” couple totally smashed cake into each others faces! 🙂
The send off was one of the best I’ve witnessed as sky lanterns were released as the new Mr. and Mrs. made their way to the “get away Harley”!
With all of the festivities, the amazing venue, who also provided the catering and the cake, and Winona’s, who provided the flowers, the true love these two have for one another out-shined it all. After all, that’s what we were all there for! We love you Chantele and Ryan!
