Charlotte/Concord Wedding Photographer || Frank Liske Park Wedding || Concord, NC || Amber & Reggie

Amber and Reggie have one of the best love story ever.  Amber and Reggie were best friends for 3 years and have never thought about dating one another.  They prayed for one another, sang with one another and just appreciated each others friendship.  One day, Amber prayed for Reggie’s wife and asked God to bless him with a wife that will love him the way she does. Well, the man upstairs told her that NO ONE will love Reggie like you ~ except for you.

I am so in tears typing this because they truly are the epitome of agape love.  Amber is one of the sweetest women you’ll ever meet. But what makes her even more sweet is her voice.  Both speak and singing, Amber is just delightful all the way around.

#happilyeversykes wedding was an amazing one.  We started out getting prepared in Charlotte, NC.  They weather man said it was going to Thunderstorm that Friday, but I love when God shows up and shows out.  The weather was perfect for this perfect couple.  The sun was shining bright and you can see the glow & joy on Amber’s face as she knew time was ticking for her to become Mrs. Sykes.

We started our first look at The Embassy Suites in Concord, NC.  The Fire Place was the meeting place and Reggie’s face was in awe as he saw his soon-to-be wife for the first time.  As they danced in the sunlight I just heard the Father say: Well done my faithful servant. May your fountain be blessed; and may you rejoice in the youth of your wife.  Proverbs 5:18  The reception was the most awesome rustic wedding.  Located at Frank Liske Park Barn, the setting was very romantic. You can watch the sunset through the skylights.

This is done alone, away from your wedding party, and it is a moment shared by just the two of you. {{amazing day events}} SykesWeddingBlog_0005Here is that beautiful fireplace I told you about at The Embassy Suites in Concord, NC.  SykesWeddingBlog_0018Look how gorgeous that gazebo is, but most importantly look how amber looks into her husband’s eyes.  That is what’s priceless.
