Jessica and Brian’s Wedding
The Club at Longview | Charlotte, NC

Oh, Jessica.  You are our Grace Kelly bride around here.

When these gorgeous images landed in the studio, we ALL swooned.  This just might be my all-time favorite wedding captured by Dana (and Alyssa).  It is so classic, so timeless and so lovely. Just like this sweet couple and their families.

Jessica was in medical school in California when her Mom first inquired about our services.  Brian and Jessica would be back and forth to Charlotte through the wedding planning year which only gave us a handful of dates to capture their engagement session, bridal session and plan for the big day ahead.

People often ask me how I choose which OSS photographer will cover each wedding.  Dana and Jessica were the perfect photographer/client match.  Both ladies are laid back but organized, effortlessly beautiful and good stewards of their time.  They connected so easily on a personal level which meant Jessica could fully trust Dana’s judgment and direction on wedding day.  They see the world through the same lens and Dana became an extension of Jessica’s vision of the day.  Dana was always looking for small details that  Jessica might miss in the hustle of the wedding day, guarding that “shot list” of loved ones to be sure every image was captured that Jessica requested AND checking in with her all day to be sure she was enjoying her wedding.  THAT is how I choose which photographer will cover each wedding.  It’s about people…not locations, not budgets, not gowns….relationships.

Dina with DBB Events pulled together an amazing team of vendors this day. Full list at bottom of post.

This event was so classic and elegant and hello, how amazing were those fireworks?? This was a surprise Dina pulled off during the reception and the newlyweds were overjoyed.  We hope those fireworks continue for the new Mr. and Mrs. Labadie for many, many decades to come.

Thank you for choosing Old South to capture your story.
