“Cotton Beauty” Styled Wedding Shoot at River Creek Lodge
This shoot shows a bride’s dream wedding details. All of these wonderful vendors came together to make our vision of “Cotton Bluety” (that is what I almost named the shoot, instead of “Cotton Beauty” ?) come together perfectly.
Let me introduce them.
Are you ready to meet some of the most wonderful wedding professionals I have had the pleasure of wedding with?!
As well as the most epic real life couple I have ever photographed?! ?
Meet Jon (the groom) and Kodi (the bride)! Just wait until you see more of this stunning couple. They belong in a magazine!
They are so pretty that you think no way are they real people, but guess what… they are.
And Kodi is a physician assistant too. Pretty and SMART. ?
Alright boys no faking a cold, even if you do want this pretty lady treating you. ?
This amazing dress was custom designed by Meagan Kelly Designs. Have a special vision in mind for your wedding dress? Meagan is just amazing at what she does, and she is the sweetest. ?
Have I mentioned that Sweet T Flowers in Waxhaw is the absolute must go to florist?! I cannot think of words for how much I love this bridal headpiece they designed! ?
And guys, if you want to look sharp, The Tuxedo Lady in Charlotte is the lady to see. ?
Did I mentioned that Meagan Kelly Designs also offers Fur Wraps.
This Winter Styled Shoot would not have been complete without one! ❄️
Want a cake that is as tasty as it is pretty? The Icing and The Cake in Mooresville has got their recipe down pat. ?
And don’t you love how Sweet T Flowers’ floral tied in so well with the cake. Oh and that bouquet! ?
River Creek Lodge has a pond you can get married in front of! And a creek to play in. ?
I am in awe of how great ERMc Hair Stylist did on this hairstyle. Elizabeth (ERMc Hair Stylist) and Tina (Sweet T Flowers) are a dream team! ?
Flower girls deserve the best…
So they need Dollcake Vintage in Australia! ?
If you are looking for the ultimate styling and decor then you need A Bushel and A Peck Vintage Rentals to be a part of your big day! Kelly has beautiful vintage furniture and pieces, and boy can she arrange them perfectly. ?
I told you, A Bushel and A Peck knows what they are doing. Just have a look at this sweetheart table!
Question: Did you just get hungry?
Answer: Yes, and go to Liazzo’s Catering for all of your catering needs. ?
Dani Miguel over at Liazzo’s is a styling genius! Food is not just food when he is doing the work, it is art. ?
Show – me – the – ring, and I will say he went to Village Jewelers in Boone! ?
And not just the ring… Did you see that antique necklace and amazing stone bracelet?!
Want to make a statement right from the moment you announce your wedding via mail? Your stationary needs are well met with Forever Whitney Young. ✍️
Why are you not reserving The River Creek Lodge for your wedding right now?!?!?!
Go… Before they are booked. ??
This Styled Shoot took a lot of planning and hard work from a lot of wonderful vendors.
Kelly (A Bushel and A Peck Vintage Rentals) and I (Jamie Marie Photography) couldn’t be more thankful for the vendors we had on board with us for “Cotton Beauty”
