SARAH + BRETT - Gaston Country Club Wedding

Sarah + Brett were married on a crisp day in mid-November. The colors outside were phenomenal; I couldn't get enough of the bright red, yellow and orange leaves! I had been wanting to shoot in the mountains for awhile, and although this wedding didn't occur in the mountains, it DID satiate my urge to capture all the splendor and beauty of fall. I am thankful for finally having the opportunity to do so. : )

Sarah & Brett trusted me completely on their big day. As a photographer (and person), this makes me feel so great and gives me extra confidence to make pictures that capture the genuine love they share. They were married at the beautiful Cathedral of St. Patrick in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the celebration afterward was held at the Gaston Country Club in Gastonia.

Congratulations you guys! It was so great working with you two and your families. Your wedding was my last of 2010 and holds a special place in my heart!

So handsome. So gorgeous.

When Sarah's parents met, her father was a captain in the army and her mother was an army nurse. When they got married, he received a sword from his crew with their names and wedding date engraved. Sarah is the youngest of three girls, and now the same sword has all three sisters and spouses with their wedding dates engraved. Special, eh?

One of the cool favors from the wedding. Love it!

Sarah's dad sang their first dance song to Sarah's mom at the reception. It was adorable.
