Karima and Layne were so wonderful. The genuine love and joy they had getting married was so present in their gorgeous wedding day. They reached out to me from the far-away Windy City of Chicago to plan their wedding in Charlotte, since this was where both of their families lived. It’s not often that I don’t meet the Bride and Groom before the wedding day, but with life the way it is in the 21st century, I think it will probably happen more and more. We chatted on the phone, and instantly connected. Karima is so warm and loving and I could tell right away that my wedding day team would just kill it for them.
The Wedding Day
They got married at the United Methodist Church in Uptown Charlotte on a very chilly but sunny November day. The weather was clear and bright, and we photographed the bridal party before at the little church across the street from the hotel where they were getting ready at. The light was perfect. Karima is a gorgeous bride!
They followed with a reception at the Mariott in Uptown, a really wonderful and spacious event room if you have a large crowd, or a crowd that likes to dance the night away! They had a fabulous live band (all info below) that just BROUGHT IT that night.
