I met these two amazing people when they booked a lavender mini session with me in 2020. Little did I know, they just got engaged!! We had the best time and I was honored when they chose us to shoot their wedding! I was even more excited when I realized they were getting married at one of my FAVORITE venues, Sweet Magnolia Estates in Cornelius, NC!

I got a call from Melissa around 9 am the morning of her wedding and the venue had lost power!! Apparently a squirrel had chewed through wires and most of the city was without power! It thankfully came back on just in time for their wedding. The entire day was perfect and their family and friends had so much fun at their reception. I have never in my career seen a dance floor as continuously packed as theirs. Everyone danced the night away and had so much fun

Who knew that Jon was the most amazing drummer ever? Apparently everyone but me ha! Jon rocked out on the drums a few times during the reception and I felt like my 14 year old self at the Warped Tour watching my favorite band. It was seriously the most fun ever!

Melissa and Jon, can you get married again please? Next weekend would be great ;)!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy reliving some of their amazing day!! If you want to view their second engagement session, you can do so HERE!

Thank you to all of the vendors who helped make their day so beautiful!
