Lydia + Derek | Mint Museum Wedding | Charlotte, NC
I'm so excited to share this wedding with you! I visited the Mint Museum at Randolph many times as a child but I've never seen it magically turned into a picture perfect wedding venue. I loved bonding over coffee with Lydia before the big day and hearing that her creative mind would be reflected in the decor. I'm head over heels for the ribbons hanging from the ceremony tree, the flowers her talented family friend turned into my favorite bouquet, and for the sweet moments Lydia and Derek had in the private courtyard immediately after they were pronounced husband and wife. What stuck out to me the most was Lydia's mother's emotion every time she looked at her daughter in her gorgeous dress. These two and their families are so kind, and weren't hesitant to embrace the moments and shed tears whenever they felt moved. It was clear from the guests that Lydia and Derek are deeply loved and treasured by the folks around them, and I can't think of a better thing to document than that.
