Change of Plans

Sometimes last-minute changes make for great photographs. Originally I was meant to meet Sydney at a salon as she and her girls got ready. However, their amazing salon ladies were lightening fast and they were finishing up just as we were set to arrive. Sydney asked if we could go to her childhood home to take photos instead. I’m so glad we did! Now Sydney has even more beautiful memories captured there. It was just that extra special touch on an extra special day.

The Venue

We then all traveled to one of my favorite wedding venues in Charlotte, Alexander Homestead! As always the crew there ran a tight ship and Sydney & Jesse’s classic Alexander Homestead wedding went off without a hitch! I can always expect the highest level of professionalism and care from the AH team. They sure love their couples and it shows!

Sweeter than Pie

Sydney’s tender heart was on her sleeve that day as she spent quality time with her bridesmaids, gave her father a loving personalized gift, and I was especially smitten when Sydney & Jesse snuck around the door of the barn to say a prayer together. Y’all could not find a sweeter couple around that day!

Thank you for choosing us to capture your amazing wedding day!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn

The First Look

I walked with purpose to the carriage house at Alexander Homestead where Caroline patiently waited to see her groom. Just moments before I left Stephen along a winding garden path with tears of anticipation in his eyes. He was finally going to marry Caroline. THIS WAS HAPPENING! Caroline elegantly strolled the path with her ombre dipped dress and grinned from ear to ear as she tapped her groom on the shoulder. Tears of joy had already been streaming down Stephen’s happy face as he took in his beautiful bride. The moment was thick with a flurry of beautiful emotions. Caroline & Stephen’s Alexander Homestead wedding was beyond romantic! It was breathtaking!

The Couple

Caroline and Stephen are that couple that you can’t help but love. They’re kind, easy going, and love to show their love through both their actions and words. They’ve got giant hearts for people and it shines through in everything they do. So when we met them, we obviously fell in love with them and hope we’re besties forever. 😉 In all seriousness tho, we have become friends through this whole wedding process and I was jumping with joy to be able to capture every minute of their special day!

The Venue

Back in the winter of 2018, Caroline and Stephen told us all about their wedding venue, Alexander Homestead. I immediately jumped online to investigate this charming venue and I couldn’t help but want to see more. I reached out to the venue to do an interview and preview the grounds. So on a cold March day, I became smitten with Alexander Homestead just like I did with Caroline and Stephen. So when I arrived on the perfect fall day, my heart fluttered to see everything in bloom! From the historic home to the picture-perfect gardens, Alexander Homestead is an incredible wedding venue!

So you can imagine how much fun Daniel and I had during the ceremony & reception. Between the tears of joy, epic photo locations, and a killer party, we couldn’t be happier with Caroline & Stephen’s romantic Alexander Homestead wedding. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. We loved being part of your incredible day and we can’t wait to see you again very soon!
