Jordan & Alexis| A Southern Destination Wedding|The Secret Garden| Huntersville, NC

I met Jordan and Alexis through my good friend and their wedding planner, Evelyn over at Events by Evelyn https://www.eventbyevelyn.com/. Jordan is from Georgia and Alexis is from Maryland, so they decided to meet in the middle and have a destination wedding in North Carolina. That is where my friend Evelyn came in. The couple contacted her and she planned and put together their entire day complete with the most beautiful florals(peonies and hydrangeas are my absolute favorites), a cigar bar and even a hedge wall set up just for photos. The wedding and reception were at the Secret Garden estate nestled in the country right outside of Charlotte, NC. The day was absolutely beautiful but a wedding in July in North Carolina is HOT! The couple did a first look and it was miserable outside. We were all melting but Jordan and Alexis never complained. We worked as fast as we could to move them back inside to the air conditioning where they exchanged gifts to each other. Jordan gave Alexis a pandora necklace and some charms and she gave him two watches! Some of my favorite things or parts of the day were the first look (Alexis looked stunning), the closeness of the groom and his line brothers who all attended the ceremony, meeting the bride’s 90 year old grandmother named Smiley and the twinkle lights at the reception. The bride had extra twinkle lights brought in and it just looked magical.

This dress y’all !!!

Alexis loved her twinkle lights. She had extra twinkle lights brought in for the reception area and I think this photo just captures how much she loved them.
