Kaitlin + Tommers | St. Peter's Catholic Church and Byron's South End Wedding | Charlotte, NC

Tommers has been a soccer buddy of Deevo's for a number of years now, so when he approached us to photograph a surprise proposal to his girlfriend Kaitlin, the answer was a definite "YES!" We then were so honored to photograph both their engagement session and wedding. We love seeing a timeline of photos going from the proposal to the engagement to the wedding; it's really cool to have a visual graduation of the most important time in a couple's life together!

Kaitlin and Tommers have a loooooong history, growing up with families being mutual friends, through college, the works. Tommers really went all out with the planning to surprise Kaitlin with a proposal, even going so far as to blindfold the poor girl and fly their families in! We can't feel too sorry for her, though. What a thoughtful guy.

For their engagement session Thom wanted something outdoor and natural and in their hood so they didn't have to drive very far (they both have demanding jobs) so we chose Latta Park in Dilworth, a great little park in the heart of Charlotte NC that offer great photographic austerity!  Check out some of these photos from their shoot.

Now on to the wedding day. Kaitlin and Tommers' ceremony was held at St. Peter's Catholic Church in downtown Charlotte. All of their family and mutual friends who have known them through their entire relationship were there to celebrate with them!   Kaitlin's gown and the bridesmaids dresses as well as the men's suits were all from New York Bride & Groom here in Charlotte.

Her gorgeous flowers were from Lily Greenthumbs in SouthEnd.  The party was well...amazing. Byron's always does it right, and everyone was dancing thanks to Z Brothers DJs. You know it's a good party when shoes are off, ties are untied, one guy's leg is broken and monograms are upside down! 


Afterward, everyone sped off to their respective homes and hotels on Charlotte's Lynx Light Rail. It was an amazing day, and an amazing finale to our little photo documentary of these two lovebirds.
