Winter Charlotte Wedding | Annabel & Bryson

Winter Charlotte Wedding

Harry and I drove to Charlotte Friday evening for Bryson and Annabel’s wedding Saturday. It was like coming home! All the friends and family that love Bryson and Annabel so dearly, treated us like we were family. The day started with rain, but much to our delight as we stalked the weather app, the threatening of rain decreased by the hour.  Their church wedding was perfect, classic, and beautiful. A winter wonderland dream of a day! We photographed their engagement session which had the same woodland theme at a Christmas tree farm back in September. Before we knew it January is here!

On top of every detail being perfect my favorite part of the day was seeing how these two are so well loved by their community. They grew up going to the same church and their families are good friends. The two were married by Bryson’s father Kevin at their childhood church. Surrounded by friends and family. One of my favorite moments during the ceremony was when each person in their bridal party shared about Bryson and Annabel. Words such as kind, faithful, and loyal describing both of them. A special day that Bryson and Annabel will never forget, with all four sets of grandparents and one great-grandmother, what a blessing to follow such legacies.

Riverwood Manor Reception

Following the sweetest church wedding, they celebrated with friends and family at Riverwood Manor. Continuing the evening with sweet first dances, comfort food, and dancing with friends made for a wonderful celebration! Riverwood Manor is a unique event facility just outside of Charlotte. A tranquil and private venue overlooking a beautiful pond and wooded area. As our first wedding of the 2019 season, we were thrilled to be a part of Bryson and Annabel’s special day. We wish you all the best in the years to come.
