Taniah and Marshall ~ Phew!!!! There’s so many amazing things about this couple. Let’s start with the fact that they are both super young and super accomplished. I mean the Lord has really poured favor on this couple. Their wedding was nothing shy of amazing. Glitter & Gold which is my absolute favorite. Taniah’s wedding started at The Westin Hotel in Uptown Charlotte. This is where she begin her primp and pampering. From hair to makeup, Taniah looked nothing short of gorgeous! Taniah’s dress was from the famous Poffie Girls in Gastonia, NC and she had the most amazing Badgley Mischka shoes. The sparkle was so gorgeous!
Her wedding dress is dazzling,
lined with gold by the weavers; A procession of joy and laughter!
a grand entrance to the king’s palace! Psalms 45
During my shoe shot, this awesome guy staying at the hotel let me use his amazing BMW for this grand shot! YES #royalty
Taniah’s makeup artist is amazing. From her eyeshadow, to the perfect choice of lipstick….this gals got talent!
Bridesmaids are super important because they are the back bone. They are not just the women that comes down the aisle with gorgeous gowns, they are there at 2am when no one else is there to talk to the bride about things that’s troubling the bride. They’re her BFFs, her sisters in Christ. The bible says Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times.
It takes someone special to make this magic ^^^ Taniah is such a gorgeous bride!
Before they begin their vows, their clothes even took a vow of unity. #OhTheDress #ThatTux
I love when brides add that unique touch. When the two began to become one, you take on your spouses last name. Here is the tribute to Taniah’s new last name. #MrsLowery
I had the opportunity to shoot the funniest groomsmen. They weren’t shy, they were very cooperative and most importantly they were sharp! Every single groomsmen had Marshall’s back. He made sure that he was represented in the best way possible. YES –> guys have BFFs too. Marshall, your blessings continue to flow.
Putting on the gown is one of the most important moment. It’s a sign that this day is about to happen. This union is about to go forth and most important what God ordained is about HIS divine purpose.
GIGGLES, SECRETS, SOMETIMES TEARS
What is the first look? A first look is a moment staged and set up by a wedding photographer for the bride and groom to see each other before the ceremony. Normally, bride and groom would agree with your wedding photographer on site away from family and friends to give them privacy and to make that moment just for them. It’s a time where you can see your spouse’s natural reaction for the first time together. I loved Marshall’s face when he saw Taniah. He was in complete and utter shock. I don’t blame him, even the people in the hotel lobby looked at Taniah as if she was a bride in a magazine. UPTOWN CHARLOTTE || QUEENS CITY
