Matt & Amy, Charlotte, NC
Photographing Matt and Amy's wedding was one of the most beautiful experiences I've had at a wedding. Everyone was buzzing with happiness; the sheer joy of the day stifled every second that stress started to rear it's head, and I spent most of the day watching various loved ones squeeze Amy's hand as she ecstatically exclaimed, repeatedly, "I'm getting married today!" Highlights of the day include: Amy's mother quoting Pride & Prejudice upon seeing her in her dress for the first time ("I knew you could not be so beautiful for nothing!"), Amy's dad proudly comparing his pockets to hers when informed that her wedding dress had them, the father/daughter dance and mother/son dance involving choreographed routines to 90's hits, Amy's brother serenading the couple at the reception, Matt carrying Amy's brother for part of the reception, endless tears, lots of dancing, great cake, etc etc etc. Just look.
