This week, our real event is something a little more intimate. Our featured couple, Jordan & Grant, had a romantic backyard ceremony that started as an elopement send off party between family and friends, that turned into something else entirely. Taking place in a suburban residential neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina, the couple surprised their friends and family with a night they wouldn't forget. What looked like a farewell party turned into a ceremony for friends and family, and it couldn't have turned out sweeter. Photographer Megan Dellinger was there to capture it all, from beginning to end, and all the sweet moments in between. Their surprise is something you just have to see, and we can't wait to show you. Keep scrolling to see just how lovely the day turned out for this gorgeous couple.
For their party, the couple had tables decorated with white linens, colorful floral arrangements, and large orb bulbs strung up for party lights. Guests were treated to live music and cocktails, while they mingled and enjoyed conversations with friends. Grant & Jordan made their way to the microphone, giving attendees quite the surprise by announcing that what was supposed to be a laid back get together, was actually an intimate ceremony for their closest loved ones. In front of everyone, they had a romantic and casual ceremony, where they exchanged vows and shared their love. Holding hands with luminous smiles on their faces, they said their "I do's", cementing it all with a passionate kiss, while those in attendance wildly cheered them on. Looking at their faces, you can see how happy and excited guests were for Jordan & Grant, and how magical it was to witness something to so incredible. What a wonderful day this must have been for all involved!
After the congratulations between family and friends, the couple took a stroll through the neighborhood to grab a few moments alone, and to take some couple's photographs. The way they're looking at each other and holding hands it so incredibly romantic, we love to see it. With the glow of the sun shining down, it gave their photos a golden shine, highlighting how lovely these two are.
The night carried on in celebration, with family and friends taking turns wishing the couple well, and expressing their surprise. There was music and happy conversation, along with drinks and of course, that incredible looking charcuterie board below! What was supposed to be an elopement send-off for the happy couple turned into an intimate ceremony, a shared experience for everyone to have, and a wonderful memory to cherish. A special night amongst closest family and friends will always be priceless, and although we weren't there, we can only imagine how memorable it all truly was.
Grant & Jordan's day certainly looked like one for the books! Nothing is sweeter than celebrating your love with family and friends, and we can only imagine how incredible of a time it was for all involved.
