Small personal wedding ceremony right outside Charlotte NC
You guys. I am Over the MOON with how these pictures came out!
Family and friends met at Mt Hope Church located in Salisbury to watch the The Moon’s tie the knot
Though its common these days to have elaborate, over the top decorations or once-in-a-lifetime views (hellloooo $$$), I’m here to show you just how GORGEOUS and ELEGANT your wedding can be without spending hundreds of hours pining over every minute detail (that, let’s be honest, nobody is going to notice).
Though we had a little bumps in the road, COVID wasn’t going to keep these two from making it official for very long
Brandon and Raina got engaged in September of 2019 after Raina’s grandmother and Brandon’s mother set them up. It wasn’t long after their first date that the couple realized they’d met their match. Next step – ENGAGEMENT! Not only were Raina and Brandon faced with planning a COVID-friendly wedding, but their wedding was pushed back by 4 whole months. Regardless of the set-back, this couple was able to plan a magical intimate wedding in the midst of a global pandemic. You could never tell by their venue that neither of them enjoy planning (I was shocked)! This couple pulls off simple, traditional elegance like no other!
In my years as a North Carolina based wedding photographer,
The majority of my weddings have been outdoors (you know I love a good location elopement). Raina and Brandon opted for a more traditional church wedding and I was SO EXCITED to hone my skills with indoor lighting again.
Industrial chic reception at the Heritage Room is Salisbury, North Carolina
The Heritage Room in Salisbury served as the perfect reception location and the bride and groom’s rustic theme suited their personalities perfectly! Check out these amazing details!
I couldn’t possibly thank Raina and Brandon enough for letting me be a part of their special day! If there was any questioning their love for each other (which I highly doubt), these precious pictures squash them all. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Moon!
