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!

    Wow! I thought this was a magazine spread at first! What a beautiful wedding, a beautiful couple and gorgeous baby. They all look like hand picked models!

    Melissa and Diego truly had the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen, why that couple and their baby should be in motion pictures..they put the JoliePitt Family to shame! What a beautiful and loving family it really shows.

  4. This is the kind of light that makes fairy tales! I’m seriously giddy over here with delight at those first few photos in the woods. And that couple is just stunning! We photographers are just SO blessed to be able to capture the lives of families like this one.
