This wedding had me overflowing with excitement! Anna and Greg are the sweetest couple and they chose such unique and lovely things to incorporate into their day! Anna and her girls got ready at The Ivey's Hotel in uptown Charlotte. Guys, I AM IN LOVE. I want to go stay here just for fun because its a gorgeous art deco hotel that opened in April 2017. When I got to the hotel, the florist, What's Up Buttercup, was starting to put on the bridesmaid's floral tattoos! Yes, you read that right. The girls didn't carry bouquets- they had gorgeous real floral tattoos that they stuck right onto their arms! Anna carried a fantastic bouquet for the ceremony but then had her own floral tattoo to put on for the reception! (And take a look at the ceremony and reception flowers that were also to die for!)
Anna met Greg near the hotel for a precious first look and some photos together. From there, we headed to Foundation for the Carolinas for the ceremony and reception! The ceremony space had tons of windows and natural light which always makes me so happy. Both Anna and Greg wrote sweet, emotional vows and you could feel their joy and love just bursting at the seems. Entering into the reception, they had one of the best first dances I've ever seen! After dinner, I snuck them outside onto the terrace for some alone time and sunset photos- these are my absolute favorite photos to take on a wedding day. You can see Anna's floral tattoo highlighted in them below! I have to mention here that Anna and Greg's day wouldn't have been possible without their amazing wedding planner, Amanda from Magnificent Moments Weddings. She is so sweet, always has anything you could need with her, helps her couples plan a unique and personal day, and is on top of everything! This perfectly planned wedding finished with mini pies, toasts, dancing, and an exit through cheering guests. Congratulations Anna and Greg!
