Real Wedding: Sophisticated Glamour at The Ritz Carlton Urban Garden

What happens with you get a gorgeous bride with an eye for design and a handsome groom with a smile that will light up a room?! You get Kendra and Randy's chic uptown Charlotte wedding at the Ritz Carlton Urban Garden! 

When I tell people I'm a wedding planner, their next immediate comment is "Oh I bet you deal with a lot of bridezillas!" I quickly answer, "Nope!". And I'm serious. My brides are some of the sweetest, most genuine, grounded women I've ever met. I feel so lucky to get to be a tiny part of their lives as they marry the love of their life. Kendra was an absolutely dream to work with! Here is a woman who knows what she wants - I love that! - and as a talented interior designer, she has an incredible eye for design - my kind of bride! Together, we created a wedding that was a perfect reflection of Kendra and Randy's style: sophisticated glamour.

This wedding day felt extra special because it was a celebration of two families coming together. The bridal party consisted of Kendra and Randy's family members and children, and Kendra was even escorted down the aisle by her two adorable son's! It was a beautiful Carolina spring day full of love!  

It's so easy to fall head over heels in love with this sweet couple! I loved every second of our time together and watching them say I Do was such a treat! Cheers to you, Mr and Mrs White! I am grateful to have been a part of your special day. And I have to extend a huge thank you to our team of talented vendors who helped make Kendra and Randy's day an absolute dream:
