High school sweethearts.
Biology class for Carol and Sean was where their love story began so many years ago.
Now, Carol is on her way to becoming a Pediatrician and Sean is also pursuing an advanced medical degree. They have high expectations for their career paths and serve as the other’s biggest cheerleader along the journey.
Getting to know these two (and their sweet families) over the past year has been wonderful. Legacy, traditional, commitment, love…these are the overriding themes in the lives of both Carol and Sean. I have no doubt they will thrive as a couple because of the wonderful role models who have proven to them that love never fails.
Carol’s dress will forever be my favorite “something old” to photograph. Click HERE to see her Bridal Portrait Session. Her grandmother (and namesake, Carol) first saw this gorgeous bridal gown in a catalog and just had to have it. In fact, she wanted the gown so desperately that she sold off a piece of inherited land to afford purchasing it from Europe. It first walked the aisle in 1957. Then, in the 80s, Carol’s mother, Suzanne, also wore the gown down the aisle giving it a second generation of life. Then, in 2017, Carol wed Sean in the very same gown giving it a third generation of life. How amazing is that??? Talk about an excellent investment and a true legacy in their family.
I cannot praise Dina with DBB Events and Jay with In Bloom enough for their outstanding collaboration and design of the reception. This party was a show stopper and every guest had the time of their lives on 2.4.17 at Charlotte Country Club.
We wish the new Dr. and Dr. Jones (well….within a few months anyway!) an amazing journey ahead. Thank you for trusting us to tell your story. May your children look at these images one day and truly FEEL how overjoyed you were on this day in February back in 2017. Who knows, maybe the gown will walk again….2045??? We would love to tell the fourth generation’s story too!
