I was so thrilled when asked to document this surprise bridal shower the Southern Weddings ladies were planning for their very own Creative Director, Emily Ayer. There was such a talented group of ladies who came together to make every detail perfect! The lovely Nicole of SW spearheaded this surprise with the help Erin of Erin McLean Events, Heidi (Director of Catering) of The Carolina Inn and Amber of Amber Housley.
Emily has a love of miniature things...so just like that these ladies planned a wonderful shower with all things mini :) Take a peek at the full recap of Emily's Mini-Inspired Bridal Shower on the Southern Weddings Blog :)
Congratulations Emily on your upcoming wedding! What a wonderful celebration this was! You have so many amazing friends who love you :)
To catch the gorgeous morning light we decided to meet at 6 a.m. for their engagement shoot. Adrienne suggested we meet at a Starbucks...THANK YOU!! At that hour we all needed a little pick-me-up to kick-off their session. Adrienne and Matt have this happy energy that is infectious. The entire session was full of laughs and even a little tour of the area they will be getting married! Thanks for such a fun morning!
Looking forward to y'alls September Wedding!!
I am in love with this session in so many ways. Not only did Blain pick the cutest outfits, her hair and make-up looked fantastic (huge thanks to the the talented Miss Lindsey Regan Thorne), but these two were just too darn adorable in front of the camera. Seriously I could barely stand it...happiness overload! Shooting their engagement session made me even more excited for their March wedding next year - couples that are this madly in love make my heart so happy. We walked and laughed the entire evening around a cute little neighborhood of Charlotte, it was a perfect session if you ask me!I told you they were adorable. I love these next two photos below, the one under a tree was a 100% perfectly candid moment. And the individual shot of Blain to the right...I mean can my brides be any more gorgeous?
Congratulations Matt and Blain, here's to enjoying the rest of your engagement and looking forward to March...I am already so very excited for the big day!
