zach & lindsey knew how to personalize every detail of their sweet soiree. they preferred the beauty of nature over an indoor facility as they swapped “i do’s” in the middle of a rose garden in downtown Charlotte. talk about a secret garden whimsical & enchanting fairytale!
she never apologized for being different but stood confident in who she is as she wore the most beautiful BLHDN wedding gown with an angelic vintage shawl.
zach bought her the rarest rose gold gem ring with a peek-a-boo diamond. i think it describes his bride perfectly: quirky & unique and once you get to know her, you discover a hidden diamond on the inside.
mismatched bridesmaid’s dresses, something blue’s & a rose hair clip from anthropologie=love!
lindsey got ready at the Dunhill hotel in downtown Charlotte. it is historic…kinda like zach & lindsey they go way back. ;-)
it was the perfect spot since the suite had 2 outdoor balconies that made for a perfect backdrop!
zach & lindsey chose to do a FIRST LOOK! woohoo! this is where you & your groom get to see each other before you walk down the aisle so it’s just you two soaking it all in.
because of that, we were able to go ahead and shoot the entire bridal party as well as portraits of just the two of them without having to rush to the reception.
it was supposed to rain heavily that day…it did not. ;-)
one of the coolest parts to mcgill rose garden was this beautiful train as the back drop to the beautiful affair.
oh, did i mention this precious flower girl is my niece? melt my heart!
enjoy as you enter into the secret garden….:-)
