Dani and Steve-o (as I have always called them!) got married at the beautiful VanLandingham Estate in Charlotte, North Carolina in late September. The weather had everyone's stomachs in knots that day; it would look beautiful one minute and then thunder clouds would roll in the next. Thankfully the drizzles let up before the outside ceremony was set to start... and afterward, we found some delicious light for portraits!

On a more personal note, my heart is filled to the brim for these two. They are high school sweethearts and couldn't be more perfect for each other. I am so humbled to have been able to document their special day. Please enjoy some of my favorites from this AHHH-mazing wedding... from the details to Dani's rockin' dress to the people there... I loved everything about it. And to Dani & Steven: the "long-awaited party" was a KILLER one! : )

Mink Letterpress did the invites and programs - LOVE.

Danielle read a prayer quietly to herself that had been passed down from several generations...

...and had everyone in the room choked up (including myself).

Steven was a beast at tying bow ties. Not only did he tie his own, but he tied everyone's in the wedding party.

Serious side...

...and fun side. : )Dani, you are FLIPPIN' GORGEOUS.

Adored the place cards! They had stamps for the different types of meals (chicken, pork, veggie).

Best old-school wedding photo EVER.

Dani really knew how to work that dress!Love y'all! Congrats again!!!
