I probably will never have another big wedding again … I’ve been there, done that in my 20’s … but Carolina Bride reached out to me and I caved!  The challenge was IF I was a bride (being a vendor in the Charlotte Wedding Industry), what would you choose to do?!

IF (big IF) I were a bride again and I had to choose vendors in Charlotte, it would be the hardest part for me since there is SO MUCH amazing TALENT in our industry here.  I called my partner in crime, Ivy Robinson of Ivy Robinson Events and we got to work.  Our styles are similar and she knows what I like and dislike so I rattled off my ideal color pallate and that was that!!

Jay at Indigo Photography shot all of the amazing looks that we came up with and I am sharing them here with you today!
