Alexander Homestead Wedding : B + M

Updated: Mar 14

    Being wedding photographers based in Asheville, there is no shortage of amazing venues, gorgeous views, and great people work with!  Which is why years ago when we started pursuing becoming full time in the wedding industry, we were initially a little shocked when we started finding ourselves in Charlotte so often.  Fast forward to present day and Charlotte has become one of our homes away from home when it comes to weddings!  We have our friends at Alexander Homestead Weddings to thank for that but we also have so many amazing couples like Becca and Matt to thank as well!  Getting to visit Charlotte is always fun because we’re trading the small town for the big city, rustic vibes for industrial, and landscapes for cityscapes.  The variety in getting to utilize lines, architecture, and different compositions, not to mention the cool lighting situations, brings a certain level of excitement to every wedding or session.

This was definitely the case for Becca and Matt’s special day!  They held their wedding ceremony near downtown at The Hamilton Event Space followed by their reception at the always popular Alexander Homestead giving them the best of both worlds when it comes to natural scenery and the more modern industrial scene we mentioned previously.  We were stoked for their big day because Becca and Matt are seriously one of the sweetest couples we’ve had the pleasures of connecting with over the years.  They are both so laid back, kind, and easy going and as we found out when the reception kicked off, quite the partiers!  To see these two in our capacity is a gift.  Their kindhearted and sweet nature gives these cuties undeniable chemistry on camera!  For us their smiles could light up a room and we were glad to be in that room to help document their story.  As you follow along we hope you all enjoy the little moments, the scenery, and the joy of what was one of our favorite wedding days from 2023!
