Sarah and David are married! And as I write this, they are off in St. Lucia, and we couldn’t be more jealous! But wow, what a day! First of all, Alexander Homestead is a fantastic venue option for you lucky Charlotte brides! A surplus of portrait locations, amazing staff (seriously, they catered to everyone, including us all day!), and is the perfect places for brides who want just that little bit of rustic touch without going overboard!

Originally, Sarah and David planned to be married outdoors with the most gorgeous setup.  Unfortunately for us, it rained RIGHT before their ceremony, and they had to make the call to move it indoors.  We were all super sad, but lucky for them by the time their ceremony ended, the rain had passed and we were able to get some really sweet pictures at their would be ceremony location.

I LOVE the colors that Sarah and David chose.  They used bright blooms that screamed spring, and their florist, Heatherly Designs did a fantastic job delivering her vision! We couldn’t recommend her more!

Thank you to everyone who was involved in Sarah and David’s day, and especially their family and friends for making us feel like family and friends as well.  We had way too much fun and hope this sweet blog can help relive some fun moments of the day!

PS – they had one of the sweetest first looks ever. Get the tissues ready!


I think this photo is so representative of Sarah and her bridesmaids! Constantly helping and assisting each other, so so sweet! It’s so important to have good people and energy around you on your wedding day! 

Sarah and David read the sweetest letters to each other at their first look, which is an amazing thing to do should you choose to not do personal vows at your ceremony. I cried, no shame. 

Look how gorgeous the ceremony setup would have been! It worked out, but I mean – Alexander Homestead is dreamyyyy!

Everyone waiting to see if the rain would let up ..haha! 

Thank you to the fab vendor team that made the day so smooth!
