Sometimes I absolutely hate shooting weddings. Especially like Patrick and Jessica’s wedding at Westminster Presbyterian and Larkin’s Cabaret Room a couple weeks ago.

Why you ask?

Because I’ll never get to do it again.

With a such an amazing bridal party (including the always fun Joanna, whose wedding we shot last year), a top-notch team of vendors, and absolutely stunning locations like Westminster Presbyterian and Larkin’s Cabaret Room to shoot in, I was looking forward to shooting this wedding for over a year. Jessica looked absolutely stunning in her dress, and Patrick wasn’t too bad himself, and I knew the whole day would just be a blast from start to finish.

And I wasn’t disappointed, Westminster Presbyterian was beautiful as always, and we hit the lighting just perfect to capture a few sunset photos. Heck, we even had a little snow left on the ground, even though it was near 60°! The reception at Larkin’s Cabaret Room was an absolute blast, with the sounds of Justin with Uptown Entertainment keeping everyone on the dance floor, and Larkin’s food keeping everyone’s bellies full. It all ended with an absolutely stunning sparkler exit in the courtyard, as Patrick and Jessica walked off into the night.

Ballantyne Country Club Wedding Vow Renewal | Melissa and Troy

Deb and I first met Melissa when we were meeting with her for her daughter Maggie’s wedding. With Melissa being a photographer herself, we just clicked but unfortunately, the dates we had left for the year just didn’t work out. We were upset, but were hopeful that our paths would cross again.

Fast forward a couple years and Melissa messaged me telling me that her and Troy were going to celebrate 30 years together with a beautiful wedding vow renewal at Ballantyne Country Club in Charlotte, NC. This time the dates did work out, and we were soon there to capture the day for them. Melissa and her beautiful daughters, and granddaughter were there to help her get ready before doing a first look with Troy, so we could take all the photos beforehand. Shortly after, during their vow renewal, it was apparent just how much impact their marriage has had on their family and friends. Their children sang their praises and labeled them the “perfect example of a marriage.” And even after 30 years, they still know how to have a good time, exiting down the aisle to their favorite 80’s rock music! Shortly after in the Ballantyne Country Club ballroom, their reception took place with plenty of details from their original wedding day, hundreds of photos, and plenty of great dancing and food. Cheers!

Erin and Ian’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Greenville, SC was definitely the perfect one to kick off 2018! I got to know Erin and Ian since we both attend Bridgeway Church together, and it was such an honor to get to capture their amazing wedding!

We started off the day right there at the Hyatt as Erin and Ian got ready for the day’s events. With plenty of beautiful bridal details, Erin looked absolutely stunning in her dress. They had a unique idea for their first look that I had never seen before: doing the grand reveal in a large mirror. It turned out great, and Ian was obviously very happy to see Erin. A few photos around the lobby lead us right into their ceremony, held in one section of the Hyatt Regency ballroom. Another unique thing was that Erin and Ian walked each other down the aisle toward the altar, symbolizing their joint commitment. With the knot tied, everyone headed over to the grand ballroom for a reception filled with 10 different types of cake, lots of amazing food, and plenty of dancing. Check it out!

To say it was an amazing 2017 would be an understatement.

Here’s a look back at my Top 50 favorite weddings images of 2017.
