Ashley & Steven’s Wedding | Charlotte Wedding Photographer – M. Clay Photography

08-30-10

Last month I had a great time shooting Ashley & Steven’s wedding at Embassy Suites Golf Resort & Spa in Concord, NC.  Wedding Coordinators were a mother\daughter team…Vera & Michelle Carroll.  It was a beautiful ceremony on an extremely hot day, but luckily, we were inside most of the time.  I could tell from their engagement session how in love they were and it was just the same on wedding day.  The beautiful decorations of the ceremony and reception were done by the Carolyn Worthy Company, the gorgeous cake by EK Cakes, and flowers provided by Harrisburg Florist.  Here are some highlights from their day:

Just a few of my personal highlights from their wedding day:
– All the groomsmen were on time !! ….Hint to future groomsmen 🙂
– I loved the intimate time shared between Ashley and her mom during the pre-ceremony preparation
– The homemade peach preserves were a very neat gift idea and fit right into the theme
– The very emotional father\daughter dance was one I will always remember.
– The Rolls Royce was a very nice finishing touch…you can’t hate on that.

A final thanks to Ashley & Steven for allowing me to be a part of their beautiful day.

Magnolia Room Wedding {Donise + Brian} | Rock Hill, SC

08-29-10

Last month, we traveled to the The Magnolia Room in Rock Hill, SC to for Donise & Brian’s wedding photography.  It was a beautiful day from the decorations, to the ceremony & reception.  It was great working with CarrieAnn from Serendepity Weddings and Events.  The beautiful cake was done by Cheescake, Etc. Bakery and the bouquets & flowers provided by The Place for Flowers.  We were slightly delayed on photo’s after the ceremony due to rain, but still managed to get the family photos done and some great images of the new couple.  The reception was definitely one to remember.  Donise is from New Orleans and they brought the authentic music and partying straight from the Big Easy.  It also didn’t hurt to have one of Charlotte’s hottest DJ’s Mr. Incongnito on the turntables for the wedding reception.  We had a great time shooting their wedding….here are some pics from their special day:

A few personal highlights from their wedding day:
– For some reason, I’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding with blue colors and this was my first.  As a Carolina Tarheel fan….I was especially digging the Maid of Honor’s dress
– Brian did the majority of the posing for the groomsmen pics….he was like “Can we get a shot like this ?”.  He made my job a little too easy 🙂
– After Donise was all finished getting ready….she unexpectedly broke out and started dancing in the room for no reason at all.
– The bartender was quite a showman.
– The reception was simply OFF DA CHAIN…when they played the authentic New Orleans brass band music, everybody grabbed napkins and was waving them everywhere.  It was like nothing I’ve ever seen…at least not at a wedding reception.
– Donise & Brian are hams in front of the camera.  LOL
A final thanks to Donise & Brian for allowing me to be a part of their wonderful and exciting day !

Donise’s Bridal Session | Charlotte Wedding Photographer – M. Clay Photography

08-08-10

I just shot Donise & Brian’s wedding last weekend (wedding pics coming very soon) and can finally show Donise’s pics from her bridal session that we did several months ago.  There was some absolutely gorgeous sunlight we were able to take advantage of that day.  Here are some pics from her shoot I’ve been anxiously waiting to post:
