Mika & Eric's Wedding {Southern Class}

October 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I know when most brides start planning their wedding day, it's just a given, they imagine blue skies and sunny.  You don't think of a rainy day, however, sometimes it happens.  Over the course of shooting weddings, I've learned that while yes, rain makes it a bit more challenging, it also makes for some beautiful pictures as you'll see below.  This past Saturday, Mika & Eric were married in a beautiful church in Monroe, NC. This wedding had all the southern touches that reminded me of years gone by. Not a detail was untouched.  To me, even the rain added a bit of character to their day.  Here is their story, in pictures!  Enjoy!

Alicia and I must have had a similar thought...During their dance, I caught the bride's mom video-ing her hubby and their daughter dancing.
