Where to even begin with these two?! They are some of the sweetest people I have ever met. From the beginning, Jordan and Dylan were so appreciative and trusting of us. We traveled to Raleigh to shoot their engagement session last fall, and I could tell from the short time we spent together that these two were just meant to be! They made each other laugh, they encouraged each other, and truly had one another's back. 

Something that I love about these two, is their love for the Lord and their families. you can tell that their families are so important to them, and were honored many times during their wedding day. They also honored the Lord, during their ceremony, and even had In Christ Alone sung beautifully by their friends. I may have even shed a few tears... behind my camera of course! 

It is always a pleasure to photograph a couple that truly loves the Lord, each other, and their families. It makes our jobs so easy and enjoyable! We really felt like we were a part of their celebration that day, and I couldn't ask for anything better. 

ABBA Designs blew it away with her stunning florals and installations throughout WinMock. If you want a planner and a florist in one, look no further! Tonya is a work horse and will exceed every one of your expectations on your wedding day. 

I hope you enjoy looking through just a few of our favorites from such a special day at WinMock at Kinderton! 

Morning Glory Farm Wedding, Monroe, NC

Esteban and Elizabeth are the type of people that instantly make you smile after being around them just for a short time. All my fellow wedding photographers can agree with me that nothing beats a happy couple genuinely excited to get married to each other!

Their wedding took place at Morning Glory Farm, a beautiful wedding venue located just outside of Charlotte in Monroe, NC. It was definitely a warm day, which is typical in North Carolina in June, but these two didn't let it get to them. There were no complaints that day- just lots of joy and laughter! 

There were so many special touches throughout the day, from the first touch between Elizabeth and Esteban, an amazing first dance (Elizabeth is a dance major), a flash mob put together by the groom and his family for Elizabeth.. guys, this wedding was just so much fun to be a part of! 

The wedding party and family showed us nothing but love all day, and they all truly were SO excited for the new Mr. and Mrs. Mendieta! It was so hard to narrow down our favorites from this wedding, because there were just too many good ones to choose from! Enjoy just a small preview from Esteban and Elizabeth's beautiful wedding day at Morning Glory Farm!

Thanks to all the fellow vendors who played a part!

Kelsey and Zack

We didn't get to meet Kelsey and Zack until their wedding day, but I felt like I had already known them. Kelsey and I had several conversations prior, and something that always stood out to me was how excited she was about her wedding day and the vision of the day coming together. We seriously have such similar taste, that I knew it would be easy for me to capture the day the way that Kelsey had envisioned. 

The day started out sunny and bright, but of course in true Carolina fashion, lots of humidity. I am always one to keep an eye on the forecast, so I was checking the weather pretty often to make sure we were getting what we needed before the rain came. While we were taking bride and groom photos after the ceremony, I saw a large dark cloud coming quickly and knew that our time was short. We went as fast as we could to get as many portraits in before the rain came, and sure enough it started to come down.

We went inside to escape the rain and decided to shoot some moody portraits, since there are so many good locations inside! I would say that the rain came at a perfect time. We had finished all the other pictures we needed, and were able to have some quiet time of portraits with the couple, away from all of their guests. We even had a rainbow show up during the reception, and the evening ended beautifully! 

Enjoy just a few of our favorites from Zack and Kelsey's wedding day! 

Anniversary Session at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden

Ever think about doing an Anniversary session? Well this session might leave you wanting to get dressed back up in your wedding attire for an anniversary session. Emi contacted me a few months ago, asking if we would be able to do an anniversary session with her and Hunter, and of course we said yes! Their style and connection is something fierce, and we loved getting to take these portraits of them. 

We love anniversary sessions, but this one is great because they got dressed back up again, and it was such a fun time talking about their wedding day with them as we walked around Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens. 

Enjoy a few of our favorites, and if you ever have any questions about booking an anniversary session. please feel free to shoot me an email at sarah@clickawayphoto.com. 

Charlotte Wedding Photographers: A Neutral Springtime WinMock Wedding

Kailey and Tyler

Kailey and Tyler's wedding day could not have been more perfect. With the beautiful setting WinMock at Kinderton has to offer, and the love these two share, it was definitely a picture perfect day. Those who know me, know that I love neutrals, so when Kailey told me her wedding was going to be neutral tones, I was pretty excited! There are some clients that you work with that feel meant to be, and you have more commonality with each other. Kailey was definitely an ideal client for me, and I loved getting the chance to work with her over this past year. She is the type of person that knows exactly what she wants and goes for it, and I thought she couldn't have done a better job planning her day! 

Both families, wedding party, (and Kailey and Tyler of course!) were such a joy to be around and so much fun to capture. Enjoy looking through some of our favorites from Kailey and Tyler's wedding day at WinMock at Kinderton- and don't forget to watch their film at the end!

Charlotte Wedding photographers: Daniel Stowe Botanical Brunch Garden Wedding

Justine and Brandon's brunch wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden was such a special one! These two kept their wedding fairly intimate with just their closest friends and family, and decided to have their ceremony at 11am. This was our first brunch wedding, and can I just say we LOVED it! I felt so energized the whole day- mainly because my best working time is 10-2, so this fit right in that time! 

They celebrated with an outdoor ceremony in the beautiful gardens, and the weather was perfect!  The spring weather here in NC can be crazy sometimes, and actually has been lately, but thankfully the day was perfect for our sweet couple! They had a traditional reception with dancing, cake cutting, and toasts, and then had a small Chinese Tea Ceremony with Justine's family.

I so appreciate how trusting and appreciative Justine and Brandon were. They greeted us with a gift right when we got there, and through this whole process truly trusted us to guide them and choose the best locations for pictures. 

Also, a huge shoutout to Kayla and her team from Clockwork Events and Design on executing such a stunning wedding for Justine and Brandon. Kayla works so hard to bring her clients' vision to life, and I so appreciate her and her willingness to serve her clients well! 

Enjoy a few of our favorite moments from this springtime brunch wedding at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden!
