Heather’s Bridals
Separk Mansion | Gastonia, NC


This smart, beautiful lady is also a busy resident in Pediatrics.  She reached out to Old South last July about her April wedding.  She knew from the beginning that she wanted a bridal portrait session and we LOVE that!  Sure, we could grab a couple of solo images of a bride on her wedding day but it would never compare to a session like this.

We like to schedule bridal portrait sessions about 4 weeks prior to a bride’s big day.  It is THE perfect trial run for hair/makeup and florals (we always recommend a trial version of your bridal bouquet on this day).  But, our brides are always surprised at the other small details that they learn on this day they never thought of like….are these undergarments the right choice for this gown? Should I have the seamstress adjust the fit?  Should we get a crochet hook to help my Mom with these challenging buttons? (and of course my favorite) How in the world am I ever going to use the restroom in this huge gown?

We believe every bride needs this 1-2 hour session focusing solely on HER to truly prepare her for wearing her gown on wedding day.  Oh, and we always deliver amazing portraits too!  Guests are always blown away by these framed portraits of the bride as they enter the reception.  We love the expressions on their faces….”wait, was this taken today?” Nope (they are typically shot one month prior to wedding day) but thanks for the vote of speedy encouragement:)

Enjoy Heather’s beautiful bridal portraits taken by Lindsey.  She became Mrs. Firebaugh on 4.22.17 and we are thrilled to finally release her beautiful images.
