Lucy & Patrick's Charming Traditional Wedding | Charlotte, NC

Patrick and Lucy have the most irresistible personality together, full of sophistication and simple, sweet love. Their wedding reflected their relationship perfectly and genuinely to who they were as a couple, and held some of the most unique aspects we've ever seen! Plus, they are adorable without even trying so we knew they would be a dream.

This photo is one of my (many) favorites because it's so sweet and everything the two of them are together. Like I said earlier... absolutely irresistible! 

The ceremony took place at Lucy's family church in Matthews NC, where she grew up. Since we were surrounded by the perfect sentimental backdrop, we tried to capture the essence of her home church in the details. Don't you just love these sunny yellow and white accessories? 

Although they aren't as glamorous, the getting ready photos are some of our favorite! The excitement and anticipation right before the wedding is at a all-time high, and joy is just overwhelming. For Patrick & Lucy, they were getting ready just a courtyard away. It was so sweet seeing the bridal party and family moving between both fluidly and excitedly, preparing all the final details and pampering the couple!

Then, the ceremony! Surrounded by family and close friends, Lucy & Patrick became husband and wife! 

After the ceremony, we took the bridal party & the newlyweds (yay!) out to the courtyard to grab some of the traditional bridal party photos. However, you've already probably notices that Patrick & Lucy's bridal party was anything BUT traditional- which is one of our absolute favorite parts! Instead of conforming to society's gender roles and the 'traditions' many couples feel pressure to obey, Patrick and Lucy choose their closest friends and family to be beside them on their big day. To us, that says so much about their character! 

Then onto the reception at the beautiful Whitehead Manor! Again see these gorgeous yellow and white details?! Absolutely perfect for their summer occasion. 

Receptions are always so much fun, but Lucy & Patrick's was absolutely true to who they were as a couple and was never dull! We love how they choose to only play classic songs (including but not limited to swing music and Frank Sinatra) which made the evening that much sweeter! Plus, they happen to be friends with quite a few people who really know how to bust a move! Our favorite moments, though, are pictured below- sweet, intimate captures between the new couple, while surrounded by all of their loved ones.  

Besides all this gorgeous and sweet moments, our absolute favorite time is taking the bride and groom away from everyone for a few final shots before sunset. Patrick and Lucy were no exception, and this is when their fun personalities really shined!

Lucy & Patrick (and their wedding!) completely has our hearts.
