Midtown Lofts and Terrace wedding of Becca and Dan

This wedding was perfect.  A beautiful celebration of love, and family, and friends, the day was full of joy.  It didn’t start out flawlessly – actually, the night before the wedding, the bride and groom were in the hospital, the groom severely ill; but everything worked out, he recovered and managed to pull through the day, and was definitely feeling better (or running on love!) as the night went on.

I had such a wonderful time documenting this day.  From the bride’s preparations and the first look at the Carlton Hotel, to the ceremony and reception at Midtown Lofts and Terrace, the day was centered on this couple, their love for one another, and the fact that this was, truly, their day.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.  What a wonderful celebration of love in my favorite city in the world!

Our college friend Steve turned the camera on me; I am much better behind than in front.  He created a beautiful film for Becca and Dan to treasure forever, and it was awesome working alongside a friend (with mad skills to boot).

 

I am lucky to have known Becca since college; we were in a co-ed a cappella group at UNC called the Tar Heel Voices, and it was amazing to get to sing with my friends, my family, again.

Becca’s Midtown Manhattan bridals

Becca and Dan were married in July at the Midtown Loft and Terrace in New York City, and I had the joy and honor to photograph their wedding day.  I am even more grateful to call these two amazing people my friends, and I am so excited to show you how special their day was!

Becca was a stunning bride, and even though we didn’t shoot a separate bridal session, I thought these deserved a post of their own.  And the view wasn’t so bad either – the venue’s terrace had a stunning view of the city, including the Empire State Building.  No big deal.  Just amazing.

Look for the rest of their wedding pictures to follow later this evening~

xoxo

Northstone Country Club wedding of Danielle and Brad

Danielle and Brad were married on the hottest day of the year.  Well, maybe.  I’m not sure if it was a record, but it had to be a record for the end of June.  It was at least 110 degrees that afternoon, and their wedding was outside at the beautiful Northstone Country Club in Huntersville, NC.  Outside.  I mentioned that, right?  It was a beautiful day, and I don’t mind getting a little sweaty, but you have never seen two people, in their layers of tulle and tuxedo material, more excited, overjoyed, really, to be getting married.  There could have been a blizzard, it could have been a stormy day, it could have been just the two of them, and it wouldn’t have mattered – these two were filled with the perfect love of two people who are meant to be together forever.  Cheesy, maybe, but so, so true.  With some couples, you can just feel it.  These two are no exception.

Danielle and Brad also had the perfect first look.  I might actually have to follow this post with images exclusively from their first look, just to drive my point home.  It was perfect.  No fanfare, nothing spectacular, except two people tucked away to the side from everything going on, spending a moment together that felt frozen in time – away from the hubbub of the wedding day, they had their moment.  THEIR moment with each other.  It was perfect.  I’ve used that word a lot in this post, but there isn’t a better word for the day.

 

I hope you love these images!

xoxo,

Christina
