The beautiful love story of Tony and Charlie began in New York City at a social gathering with memorable conversations and a Facebook friend request. Fast forwarding past European vacations, job promotions, relocations and the proposal, we magically arrived to the special date of May 21, 2016.
The clouds cleared just in time for the perfect wedding with Charlie & Tony at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, NC. As the family and friends gathered, Tony and Charlie did a intimate first look, a magical moment that solidified their wedding day. Guest wore hues of blue to set a refreshing tone for the ceremony bringing Charlie's vision to life. Charlie gracefully walked down the aisle wearing her gorgeous gown designed by Zuhair Murad while gazing into the eyes of Tony who awaited her. Throughout the ceremony there were many laughable moments shared by the couple and guests. The reception was orchestrated by DJ Mark Battle who played high energy selections which kept the guest dancing all night.
