Byron’s South End Wedding | Carli & Matthew


October 4, 2022

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs.! Carli and Matthew are married, and I couldn’t be happier for them! They’re such a very special couple to me because of how much they care about everyone around them. Even on her wedding day, Carli made a point to check on ME and make sure I was doing okay. I’ll never get over the fact that I have such wonderful and sweet couples!! 

Byron’s South End Wedding 

Carli and Matthew planned a classic and romantic wedding day here in Charlotte, NC. They held their ceremony at the gorgeous St. Gabriel Catholic Church before a reception at Byron’s South End. The entire day was so much fun! Carli and Matthew were truly concerned for every guest that came to their wedding day – making sure they were having a great time and just so happy that they came to celebrate the newlyweds. You could feel the love in the room around Carli and Matthew, because they’re just such caring people! 

Between their church ceremony and reception, we headed out to Freedom Park for their portraits. It was SO worth it! Between all of the gorgeous trees and pond, we had so many great options for their photos. Carli and Matthew just looked incredibly happy and I loved their bridal party, too. Seriously, everyone was so joyful during this entire day!! That carried over into their reception at Byron’s South End. I LOVED watching their guests party – they kept the dance floor packed and there were so many memorable moments. It was a lot of fun. 

Thank you to Carli and Matthew for asking me to capture your beautiful Byron’s South End wedding day. I’m so happy for you both – and I feel incredibly lucky to know you both!!
