Real Weddings: Melissa + Diego

:

Melissa and Diego’s Charlotte wedding is beautiful in so many ways.  They are a stunning couple, to be sure, but what is so amazing about this wedding is the strong sense of love and connection that they share.  Cheyenne and Geoff Schultz did a wonderful job capturing the magic of their wedding!

The couple have a son, Sandro, and he is just the most adorable little boy, isn’t he?

This light is just … etherial, perfect.  I adore how Melissa paired neutral bridesmaids gowns with red bouquets – they really pop!

OK, so how gorgeous is Melissa?  I love the feathered headpiece, and her classic and understated makeup.

… and then they moved to The Palmer Building for the reception.  The dark beauty of the room was accented with lush burgundy linens and deep red and green centerpieces.

Escort cards were pinned to a lovely world map – such a unique display!
