Charlotte and Tony: Carolina Club Winter Wedding!

Charlotte and Tony were married this past December at St. Thomas More and the reception was held at The Carolina Club.  I had the pleasure of meeting them in January at The Carolina Inn wedding show.  Their dream of a Christmas winter wedding came to life as both their friends and family came together to celebrate the big day! It was such a pleasure to work with Charlotte and Tony and their wedding was a great way to end the year! 🙂

There were so many personal touches throughout the night that made their wedding even more special…from the hand-painted ornament favors to the chocolates representing both Charlotte’s home state of Ohio and Tony’s alma mater, The Tarheels! I think everyone brought out the tissues during the father/daughter and mother/son dances. Pictures of Charlotte and Tony growing up were played up on the screen as they danced with their parents. It was such a touching moment and a wonderful way to share memories with the guests in attendance.

One of the best parts of their wedding night was during the cake cutting. I’m sure you are thinking…how much more exciting can the cake cutting get? With Tony being a UNC Alum, Charlotte had to incorporate something relating to UNC besides hosting the wedding in Chapel Hill. Well, just as Charlotte and Tony were about to cut the cake a surprise visitor decided to crash the wedding. Rameses the UNC mascot waltzed right into the ballroom with a tower of of Bojangles’ Bo Berry Biscuits! Tony’s face was priceless when he realized what was happening.  Two of his favorite things combined!  Good job, Charlotte!

Charlotte and Tony – thank you so much for letting A Southern Soiree be a part of your special day!  And, thanks to 2 and 3 photography for capturing the below images!
