Sarah and Walt’s wedding centered around classic glamour, clean decor, and most importantly, a celebration of love! Caroline Ghetes Photography did a stellar job of capturing gorgeous and creative portraits of the bride and groom and reception photos full of emotion and artistry. The wedding took place at Roof with a View in uptown Charlotte, NC and the couple finished their evening by dancing on the rooftop deck, overlooking the glittering lights of the neighborhood where they first met and now call home.

Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Sarah and Walt: Good food, good music, and great friends and family.
Junebug: What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day?
Sarah: We wanted a more classic wedding rather than something too trendy. I wore a full lace white dress and Walt wore a black and white tux. With gray tablecloths and all white flowers, everything looked very clean and crisp with just enough pops of color in the bridesmaid dresses and a few cocktail tables. We also wanted everyone to have fun! The photobooth was a hit. We also had our favorite pizza delivered at the end of the night which was also a hit as everyone was hungry again from so much dancing. Because Walt and I met each other and now live in Uptown, we knew it had to be the backdrop to our wedding. The venue was just perfect, with a huge patio overlooking the lights of the city.
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Caroline Ghetes Photography and her imagery?
Sarah and Walt: Caroline has an amazing eye for lighting! She captures the day artistically rather than just taking pictures of what’s going on. She wasnt afraid to pull you aside to get the perfect shot. She is really funny too!
