NC Photographer Photographs Wedding of Lifelong Client

It’s an honor to be asked to photograph a wedding, in general. But when it comes to a lifelong client, I couldn’t imagine anything different. I’d be heartbroken to not be a part of this special day for the Kopelic family. I’ve been photographing Stephanie & Sydney since they were tiny! Actually, I loved photographing the girls getting ready at their home because I could see all my work over the years that Beverly & Steve will cherish forever! Dance portraits, garden portraits, senior portraits, and now bridal, engagement and wedding day portraits!

The ceremony took place at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Concord, NC. This is one of my all-time favorite churches! It’s stunning! I love all the details of the building; it’s a photographer’s dream.

Stephanie kept her dress as a surprise from the bridesmaids during wedding planning, so the reveal was so much fun! The girls fell in love with the dress – the color, the details, everything! It was definitely the perfect choice for Stephanie. She looked fabulous and the faces of the girls were priceless!

Most people only know “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue” but the old English rhyme actually ends with “A Sixpence in your Shoe.” Steve, Stephanie’s dad, gave Stephanie a sixpence and placed it in the middle of her shoe to wear all day! This specific sixpence was dated 1906, even before Stephanie’s grandparents were born. (Can you tell we love the small details of the day?!)

Stephanie also adorned her gorgeous bouquet by Lily Greenthumbs with a wedding band that belonged to a late great-great-grandparent. The bouquets were stunning!

The girls were fun and sassy! The guys… Let’s just say they were full of themselves! I think they enjoyed being in front of the camera! We chose the calm images to share, but there are some entertaining ones, for sure!

The reception was held at Cabarrus Country Club. Lily Greenthumbs had gorgeous centerpieces there to set the tone of a beautiful sit down dinner!

Abigail’s A Cake Affair did a fabulous job on the cake! It was beautiful AND delicious! The intricate details on the 2nd and 4th layers were unbelievable. And you know I love a pretty serving set – “I do” & “Me Too” forks with a monogrammed server! Makes me happy!

Virtual Sounds did a GREAT job of keeping the party going all night long! This huge dance floor comes in handy when you have a fun bunch of guests like they had!

To Stephanie & Tyler, thanks for letting us capture the details of your big day! We look forward to photographing Baby Englerths in the future! 🙂
