laura & reed {wedding | the ritz, charlotte nc}

Our last wedding of 2013 and it went out with a BANG! What a year, so many amazing weddings and people we got to hang out with… This wedding was seriously spectacular. It was a winter wonderland{ish} with it being December but it was amazing and the decor was crazy awesome! We got to work with some of our very favorite vendors on this one….the perfect way to end our 2013 wedding season!

Laura is one of the most beautiful and genuine people. She is a kindergarten teacher and I can only imagine how sweet she is as a teacher, those kids are so lucky to have her! Reed is hilarious and super sweet as well! Between him and Steven, we had to keep those boys in line. haha. Here is a peek into their special day.
