Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens Wedding | Charlotte NC | Leslie + Charles


We can not express enough how happy and thankful we are to have been able to be a part of Leslie & Charles Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens Wedding! It was an absolute joy for us to be a part of and to celebrate with amazing people!

The Couple

Leslie & Charles are two people that we instantly connected with as soon as we met at our studio! They came over and we enjoyed some wine together and chatted about their amazing wedding day. We talked about her teaching, how they met in high school art class, I mean who doesn’t fall in love with their easel neighbor! Most of their relationship has been long-distance as he finished up his 3rd degree at Yale and she is the best teacher in the school! When they came back into town we headed over to McDowell Nature Preserve near his house for their engagement session. They worked it! Then after we stopped over at Mac’s Speed Shop, we had never had it and it was AMAZING!

The Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens Wedding Ceremony

they ended up getting ready at their own houses which was really cool! It was great for them to be able to hang out with their family and friends and for us to document their day in a place so special to them. After we headed over to Daniel Stowe when they had the most beautiful first look in preparations to walk down the aisle. Now, we fell in love with their family! They both have the nicest, most generous and caring family we have ever been around and you instantly see where they get it from! From the beginning of the ceremony to the end we laughed, we cried and we grinned from ear to ear for them! It was absolutely beautiful!
