Right before she walked down the aisle, he closed his eyes. Only for a couple of seconds. They had been dreaming of this day for over 2 years. Planning, traveling, looking at possible locations for their ceremony…All the pieces had fallen into place, perfectly. The people that are most important to both Karen & Tavoris, were there to see her descent the steps of the Alexander Homestead.
In a beautiful ceremony performed by their pastor, Karen & Tavoris promised to stay true, they promised eternity and sealed that commitment with a kiss. Well, a couple of kisses. The rest of the evening was mostly spent dancing, not only by the couple, their friends, or the amazing mother of the groom, who had by far the most impressive mother/son dance ever, but also the African Dance group which Karen is part of.
Karen & Tav, thank you, for having us document your first day as husband and wife, for being friends, inviting us to your beautiful home. We cherished every moment spent with both you and your lovely family & friends. You made our first Charlotte experience amazing, we look forward to coming back soon, even if it’s only to meet up with you two. And your dog. And bird. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for such an amazing couple.
Much love, Claudia & Miguel
Karen enjoyed the early afternoon getting ready together with her and Tav’s mom.The Alexander Homestead is an amazing location…In the late afternoon, the backyard wedding ceremony started…Mr & Mrs…After the ceremony, during cocktail hour, we roamed the area around the Alexander Homestead for wedding photos…In the meantime, guests were invited to the reception in the beautiful barn…Karen & Tav had a spectacular entrance followed by a perfect mother/son dance…The ‘shoe-game’… :-)The look on Tav’s face when she gives a different answer than he does…After some short but sweet speeches…And a performance by Karen’s dance group…They spent the rest of the night on the dance floor. Enjoying the beginning of this new chapter in life, together.
