How to ENJOY your wedding — 10 Couples that totally NAILED IT! | Charlotte Wedding Photographer


September 25, 2015

Hi there! Welcome to the  journal about our lives, travels, fashion, and style. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Amy.


I know that the title of this post may sound like a given, right?  I mean…everyone enjoys their wedding?  Um, no.  Sadly, a wedding can get you in such an anxious and overwhelmed space that you may not realize you haven’t let loose and truly enjoyed it until the last sparkler dies out.  🙁

I am 100% for having a good time at your wedding.  Like, the hair flying, dress muddy, happy tears streaming kind of fun.  I know how short a loooong wedding day can seem in a rearview mirror.  You got dressed, you said your vows, you took a lot of pictures (YOU BETTER!) and then what?  It’s all a blur.  Well, ladies and gents, I’m here to show you what a good time looks like when a Bride (and groom…) are LITERALLY having the time of their lives on their wedding day.


Who needs fancy champagne when we have TEQUILA?!?
