Laura and Derek’s Wedding
Providence Country Club | Charlotte, NC

These two North Carolina natives grew up just miles apart but didn’t meet one another until both were enrolled at Wake Forests’ Physicians’ Assistant program.

Laura went to NC State and Derek went to UNC Chapel Hill but their paths crossed just as P.A. school began.  A few months later, they went on a first date to…..a wedding!  Not just any wedding either- a wedding captured by Old South!  Katie and Andrew were married back in 2014 and Laura was a bridesmaid.  She and Derek had a blast that night and the rest is history!

I was thrilled when she contacted me again back in June of 2017.  I was booked for her date BUT we have such a talented team of photographers and Dana was the PERFECT fit for Laura and Derek.  Last fall, they all met up in the NC mountains for their engagement session and those were truly some of the prettiest fall imagery Dana has ever shot.  And as expected, the wedding images lived up to that same standard of excellence!

Derek and Laura truly, truly, truly had the time of their lives on 9.29.18 at Providence Country Club.  Scrolling through the images, you can FEEL the joy that surrounded them this day.  Two amazing families, two soulmates and a reception full of party-going-booty-shaking-well-wishing friends.  Who could ask for anything more on their big day?
