Shannon & Colin told me that they were having a small, intimate winter wedding and that they were just so excited to be married. The wedding was the icing on the cake…but they knew that the relationship and the marriage was the larger goal. I love couples like that, they are no fuss…just want to have a good time and at the end of the day be married! Naturally, as a Charlotte wedding photographer I was excited to have my first 2016 wedding be on the second day of the year, that doesn’t happen that often!
The weather was actually quite nice, we went outside for some portraits before the ceremony and then for a few after the ceremony around the small firepit, as Shannon put it…just doing what they would all normally be doing on any other chilly weekend night! The simple reception was held inside of the beautiful Christ Lutheran Church where Colin’s father sang with his quartet (both during and after the wedding!). The couple danced, laughed and then headed off to their favorite watering hole to have a bit more relaxed fun with friends and family!
Thank you Shannon and Colin for being so fun and easy to work with!
