Gina, is more than a client bride to me - I have photographed Gina's [Siblings] brother and sister's weddings in the past three years. And this has allowed me develop a sweet relationship with her and the family.
On Easter 2014, Charles proposed and she said YES! So, they were engaged, and it was no mystery, I'd be the one to be there to tell the story. Gina and Charles would hold their ceremony at the Wilmington Convention Center and as planned for many months the wedding was to take place outside by the Cape Fear River.
However, Tropical storm Ana had alternate plans and made the day windy with tons of rain and weather. Well, you know what they say... Rain is good luck on your wedding day. In this case, we received so much rain this couple is going to be super lucky!
Gina looked stunning in her gown by Essense of Australia and flawless with hair and makeup by Tyler Kent Salon.
When party time came everyone was having such a great fun. Entertainment from Don with Jewell Events, was incredible, as he played the best tunes and engaged the guests to have memorable moments, even dancing 'Macarena' - Before the beautiful bouquet by Verzaal was tossed, he created a game for the newlyweds that included sitting them facing their backs and asking questions - how well they knew each-other and the passed with flying colors. A beautifully designed flower arrangements were made by a personal friend Lucia.
Toasts were made by both Best Man, Daniel and Maid of Honor, Amy. After the toasts, guests were delighted by the delicious Cake provided by Tammy Hodge.
When the night ended, they had a last dance as everyone prepared to meet them as their Limo arrived and their send off - Sparkles! Couple Honeymooned in St. Johns USVI - in a private cottage... Congratulations to our adored Gina & Charles!
