Matt + Laura Ritz Carlton Charlotte NC Real Wedding

Laura and Matt had such a romantic, classic wedding in beautiful downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. These college sweethearts chose a picture perfect Catholic church to exchange vows in, and the stunning reception was held in a dream location for most brides – at the Ritz Carlton. Laura looked breathtaking in a gorgeous gown – a sweetheart neckline and jeweled belt created a timeless look for the bride. She had a perfect side bun to complement the amazing dress – her drop earrings were just right for the gown and kept the eye drawn to the beautiful belt. charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding charlotte nc real wedding

The Catholic church wedding was so elegant and traditional – such a perfect setting for Laura and Matt’s wedding.

The bridesmaids wore dresses in the same color scheme, but the straps on each of the dresses was different – this is a perfect option for brides who want varying looks and flatter each of the women’s bodies.

Matt looked handsome with a French cuff and a salmon-colored tie – the two of them together looked so lovely!

The reception, held at the downtown Charlotte Ritz Carlton, was equally as stunning. Candle arrangements, with vines of leafy greenery and votive candles, accented each of the tables. Simple, but elegant.
