What can I say about Kenzie & Steven!? These are 2 of the most awesome people I’ve ever met. We first got together earlier this year for their engagement shoot in Charlotte, before they moved away from me to Colorado(so many cry faces!). They both have a huge love for the NoDa area which is where we primarily shot their engagement pictures. Their wedding was in the GORGEOUS venue, the McGill Rose Garden in NoDa. It reminds me a lot of the movie UP, only the garden version! Its a beautiful quaint rose garden saddled in the big city of Charlotte. Such a perfect combination of city and nature in one venue.
The night before their wedding after the rehearsal we went out and partied at Salud Cerveceria in the NoDa area. It was an awesome time drinking craft beer, eating pizza, and hanging out with 2 special people. It was also nice for me to meet a lot of the family and bridal party, to begin building a fun rapport before the big day. I’ve included many pictures from that night below, before rolling into the wedding pictures.
The wedding day included many locations. The day started on the outskirts of Charlotte at a BnB where the bride and the bridesmaids got ready. From their we went uptown to snag some shots of the groom and groomsmen at their hotel. We then went to Romare Bearden Park for the first look and some bridal party pictures. After those pics, we took off to NoDa and took some more bridal party pictures, as well as some fun toast shots at some local bars. After that bit of fun, we went to the McGill Rose Garden, where all the magic happened. I hope you enjoy this gallery!
