What do you get when you combine a gorgeous uptown venue, a happy couple and a group of badass vendors? A gorgeous uptown Charlotte wedding like this one I did back on a beautiful May day.
I worked with Carrie and Ali for a year and loved seeing their elegant wedding come together. The talented Lori with Capture Me Candid Photography made Carrie and Ali look like the rockstars they truly are!
The wedding was held at the beautiful Charlotte City Club and the venue was the perfect backdrop for their blush and champagne wedding. Let me take you through their day!
I loved their classic invitation from Paper Source.
A simple bouquet of blush garden roses from Pink Petunia was exactly what the bride wanted.
Here’s the lovely bride with her maids on the well known City Club staircase.
A proud papa walking his daughter down the aisle.
Always fabulous Reverend Rebecca Nagy put on a heck of a ceremony as usual!
The couple took beautiful uptown Charlotte photos after the ceremony.
The ballroom at the City Club was decked out with gorgeous florals, linens and blush satin napkins.
Wow Factor Cakes provided a stunning dessert table with cake pops, cupcakes, specialty brownies and a small cake for the couple to cut. We found this wonderful customized golden cake topper on Etsy that was perfection on the textured buttercream single tier cake.
Z Brothers DJ spun some sweet tunes that kept the crowd dancing all night long!
Selfie sticks were a big hit…
Another special part of the couples wedding weekend was the Persian Wedding Ceremony on Friday night which was held at the Duke Mansion. The groom’s mom coordinated the entire event and it was absolutely gorgeous. They were kind enough to invite myself and my husband and it was a beautiful, symbolic affair. Here are a few photos from that evening.
I was really sad when this weekend was over because I enjoyed the planning and hanging with this fun couple so much! Here they are departing through sparklers at the City Club. I wish them all the very best! Thanks to all the wonderful vendors who helped make this day a true success for the happy couple. Congratulations to Carrie and Ali!
