One of the greatest and best reasons to be a wedding photographer is this: being around two people who are completely in love, and then witnessing them join their lives is simply good for the soul! As soon as I met Judith and Julian, I knew that the time I was going to spend with them would be special. And I was proved right during their rehearsal dinner! These two have an adorable sense of humor, are warm and fun loving and to top it off, their family welcomed me with open arms and complete kindness! Now, as for how the bride and groom met…
Three years ago Judith was spending time with friends on Lake Norman and just happened to meet Julian…at his mother’s house! Judith said that as soon Julian walked into the room, she knew there was something special about him! And as for the groom, well… 🙂 At the rehearsal dinner, his brother told us all the story of how Julian reported that he had ‘met the woman he was going to marry’…after their very first date! A shared love of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had clinched the deal! And so, on Labor Day weekend of 2015 he took Judith back to Lake Norman, along with all of their family and friends. As the happy bunch piled onto a boat to “take a picture”, Judith turned to find her parents holding a sign. Her eyes moved over the words: “Judith, Will You Marry Me?” and then flitted to find Julian…who was down on one knee! For this twosome who love their family so much, I know this was the perfect proposal!
And as wonderful as the rehearsal dinner was, the wedding took the cake! The ceremony at Myers Park United Methodist was the epitome of elegance. Judith was stunning and graceful, absolutely glowing! For the reception, the party moved to the Myers Park Country Club and I believe that all 220 guests got up and rocked the dance floor! It’s days like the ones I spent with Judith and Julian that make my job the best ever!
