Anene and Tremayne held their ceremony and reception at The Hall at Landmark. It was a perfect location. Everything about this wedding was beautiful and so colorful! Her family wore the traditional cloth brought in from Nigeria specifically for the wedding. I loved the reception attire. The colors were so vibrant.
The guys cigar room was a perfect location for their getting ready.
The florals were a perfect match to the dresses.
Looking good guys....
Anene's mom is so beautiful.

Anene and I did her bridal portrait session a few days before the wedding because her dress just arrived. It was a perfect day. Here is another one of my favorites from the day.
Dedra and Mike were married at a cute little chapel in Zirconia, NC with the reception following at the Copper Crest in Hendersonville, NC. They were such a fun group to work with! I am so lucky to have wonderful couples like them. If you are needing a great band to get the guests on the dance floor check out Royal Groove. They were awesome!
I always enjoy the getting ready part of the day.
The sexiest shoe shot!
A little bit of laughter...
They said the car was used in the making of the Godfather movies. How cool!
Don't you just love a grand entrance!
Dedra had a second dress that was absolutely gorgeous just like her! They danced the night away...
This wedding was an experience that I will never forget. Two days before the wedding I had spoken with Courtney to discuss the last minute details and we joked about me going skating on Friday for my friends birthday party, and I said I wasn't going to skate because I didn't want to show up to her wedding on crutches. So Friday came and I went to the skating rink and was standing around watching my friend skate. He was standing at the edge of the barier wall so I decided to take a photo of him with the colored lights in the background. As I walked toward him I stepped off the ledge that I did not realize was there, fell, and sprained my ankle. I showed up to the wedding on crutches. It was so painful and I knew I could not give Courtney and Brandon full coverage of their wedding in my condition. I wasn't about to let a sprain keep me from photographing the wedding, but I knew I needed help. I call up some wonderful friends who came to help. We ended up with 4 wonderful photographers to make sure every detail was captured. I couldn't let my couple down. It was their big day and it had to be spectacular! A big thank you to my assistant Deanna, Regina Holder, and Kelly Giezentanner! You were all so wonderful and helpful and I appreciate everything you did! Courtney and Brandon were so fun and the wedding was simply amazing! I loved working with them and their families. They all got ready at Courtney's parents house which is beautifully decorated and a perfect setting. We did her bridal portraits there as well.
Isn't she gorgeous!
And these ladies were looking so good in their fabulous black dresses!
Check out the gentlemen with a sweet ride! Oh yeah!
I just love this shot of Courtney heading to church. It was a perfect moment as the wind caught her veil. So beautiful!
Her boquet was a cascade of floral beauty!
They have a lot of friends and family to celebrate. There were people in the balcony and even standing in the foyer. They are loved!
A few fun images from the reception that was held at the Greenwood Arts Council. And lastly, here is one of my favorites that Kelly got. I had her set up across the street to capture some wonderful couple images that were stunning. I love play time!
