Liz & Luke | Wedding | Ritchie Hill | Concord NC

Liz & Luke wanted a wedding that wasn’t too big, but had an awesome after party! No DJ, and a super short ceremony done by my boyfriend, Sam McFarlane! When they first told me their venue was Ritchie Hill, I almost screamed. It has been my dream to shoot there and it’s only 20 minutes from my apartment. September was the perfect month for these two! Ritchie Hill has the best spot for the girls and guys to get ready. My favorite part of the day was Liz’s dress! It was her mother’s dress redesigned into her dress. The same sleeves and train! The girl’s dresses were from Amazon and all the girls did their own hair and makeup. As for the guys, they were seriously too much fun! Liz and Luke are more of an intimate, quiet couple. But their bridal party brought them into the party mood! Their after party at Unknown Brewery lasted all night!

Top 5 Engagement Spots in Charlotte!

Top 5 Engagement Spots in Charlotte!

The best spot for some fun color and architecture PLUS BEER! There is so much to photograph with the bars, lights, the Charlotte skyline, even some bikes or scooters! South End is super close to other parks, Noda, and Plaza Midwood. This makes it super easy to have two locations in one session!

Jessica and Bert decided to elope at the courthouse with their family! They loved it way more than planning a big wedding! Even though there are no photos allowed in the courthouse, we walked through uptown taking photos of them in the June summer heat! Can you tell? We stopped in The Cotton Room to find out, that is where one of their first dates was! After cooling off, they met with their friends and family at The Broken Spoke for the BEST cheese plates, drinks, and a surprise appearance by one of their favorite musicians from Greenville, South Carolina! Jessica & Bert were so great and easy to photograph the entire day! Plus, I am going back for more cheese at The Broken Spoke soon!

Laura & Chris (Plus Cooper) rocked their engagement session! I met all three of them at OMB last October. Yes, y'all can meet me for a drink! We immediately hit it off with drink beer and wine. They are even having Sam officiate their wedding! I was so excited to see their beautiful venue and to walk through their plans. OCTOBER CAN'T come soon enough! We also took a trip to the Charlotte skyline and the Rail Trail. I cannot express how much I love these two! <3
