When LeeAnn first contacted me, it was just for an engagement session, as her and her fiance Miguel were planning to get married in Florida where they were living. By the time our session rolled around, they had moved to Charlotte and had just picked a date to get married here. We were thrilled when she asked us to shoot her wedding. :)
A couple days before her wedding, LeeAnn had emailed me some final details and made mention that the day was going to be stress-free. While I admired her positivity, a wedding day is rarely stress-free. However, as soon as I got to the hair salon, I believed her 100%. And she was right - the day....the whole day of the wedding....was in fact, stress-free. It was probably the least amount of stress I've ever experienced on a wedding day.
Miguel and his groomsmen are in the military - so an "at attention" shot was only appropriate. :)
Guess who did the fabulous hair and makeup? Yup - it was Kymm. :) (Who's the Fairest)

The ceremony was held at St. Matthews Catholic Church
LeeAnn and Miguel's one request was that we stop off on our way to the reception to grab a couple shots with their little dog Sammy Joe.
Impromptu Trash the Dress session! We were all CRACKING up at Sammy Joe attacking LeeAnn's dress.
It was a big breath of fresh air to have the time we needed to shoot the bridal party and LeeAnn/Miguel. Most weddings, we have literally minutes to do these photos (enter stress)....but on this day, we had more than we needed to get the shots we wanted uptown.
The reception was held at the ultra-chic Bentley's on 27 in uptown Charlotte.
Awesome cake by Edible Art.
We were so excited to have Bethany from All the Right Grooves there to DJ.
Congratulations LeeAnn and Miguel!
