Let's start by checking out this stud, Jason!
And Kate? WOW. That's all I have to say.
Prior to her engagement session a couple months ago, Kate had emailed me voicing a little nervousness about not knowing what to do for the shoot and that all of the people on my blog look like models. Well, Kate.....you blew it off the flipping roof - you are STUNNING.
Hair and makeup by the fab Kymm of Who's the Fairest.
Kate's two sisters were her bridesmaids.
The ceremony took place at the tiny little St. Mary's Chapel in uptown Charlotte. I have driven past this chapel many of times and finally had the chance to shoot inside. SO cute.
One of my all time favorite kiss the bride shots.
With only a few family formal photos to take following the ceremony left Geoff and I plenty of time to steal Jason and Kate away for their portraits....it was SO nice to not be rushed.
Note to all of our upcoming brides and grooms - it makes ALL the difference to plan out your wedding day schedule with enough time for pictures of just the two of you. It's much more difficult to "bring the magic" when all we've got is five minutes. :(
And by the way, I LOVE this shot.
If you only could see what it took to get this shot - Kate and Jason were champs.....behind them was about an 8 foot drop to the ground! (no worries, we took safety precautions and had Kate remove her shoes :)))
And if we didn't already have a ton of great pics, we still had MORE time, so we went to a special spot to see the skyline.
Spin, Kate, spin!
Their reception was in South End at Tutto Mundo (attached to the Pewter Rose).
Congratulations, Kate and Jason! We wish you the very best! :)
