I can’t begin a blog post about Carver & Justin without mentioning how genuine these two truly are on the inside. They have the sweetest hearts, most beautiful smiles, and welcoming demeanors. I remember leaving their engagement session feeling like I’d known these two for years. Needless to say we were more than looking forward to their Myers Park Country Club wedding!
As we drove to Charlotte, NC we timidly looked at the forecast. It seemed it changed every five minutes from heavy rain to nothing at all. Since there’s not much we can really do about it, we hoped for the best, and headed into their day optimistic that it would all work out. As the day went on, the chance of rain kept getting pushed later and later into the evening, leaving us with the most beautiful cloud cover for portraits! We were able to take all of their portraits and get to the reception before the sky opened up! Which was so good, because by far they have the largest wedding party we’ve ever photographed (you’ll see below), and I have no idea what we would have done if we’d been stuck trying to take a group photo of 30 indoors!!!
Photographing these two as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day was a moment I won’t forget. Their embrace seemed to never end, and the emotions were definitely real. That is why we love these two so much! They are real as real comes.
Carver & Justin, there aren’t enough thank yous out there to tell you how much we truly loved being part of your day. We are so happy for you and the life you’ve begun together! We wish you the happiest of marriages!
