We adored getting to capture Liz and Matt’s wedding day along with WNC Video Productions at the historic Lake Lure Inn with the ceremony at the gazebo nestled by the lake, surrounded by the mountains. I had the pleasure of getting to capture the two lovebirds for their engagement session in uptown Charlotte a few months prior and was extra excited about working with them on the big day. To see their inspired engagement session photos, click HERE.
These two brave souls are both high school English/Literature teachers and are living out their own epic love story. They are both such smart, thoughtful and eloquent writers that wrote each other THE most beautiful vows!! So glad they have their wedding video to relive and treasure that moment that was so important, to see and hear themselves on their big day. We look forward to sharing WNC Video’s sample of their stunningly beautiful wedding video soon. Matt shared an early part of their story in his vows, recalling when Liz sighed that she wanted an epic love story of her own – and he said she should make it happen. Little did she know he was head over heels for her at this point!! Soon after they were starting to write the beginning of their own story. They have two of the sweetest dogs that were huge catalysts in their relationship, so naturally they were a big part of the ceremony. Liz’s father was their minister and everyone choked up at least a few times during one of the most heartfelt ceremonies we have ever captured.
Canary yellow and grey accents appeared throughout the day – from the bride’s yellow shoes and bouquet to the silvery grey icing on the cupcakes! Liz did her own floral (brave, creative bride!!). The DJ was a talented friend of the groom. The gorgeous cupcakes and couple’s mini cake by Icing on the Cake.
We feel so lucky to be there to capture such important moments for our clients! We are excited to share that Liz and Matt are expecting their first child and I will be heading to Charlotte in March to capture Liz’s maternity photos!! Soon after I will be heading back to meet their little bundle, Emerson (LOVE the name!!). Congrats Matt and Liz! Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!!
