I did an amazing thing with Phylicia from Posh Moments Photography for this Winter Style elopement in North Carolina! She put on the Honestly workshop and GUYS! IT WAS PHENOMENAL! Learning from her about Two Bright Lights, how to find vendors, styling these elopements for North Carolina brides, and creating that relationship was so inspiring and helpful. At the end of the workshop, it was no wonder she sold out in 30 minutes of starting ticket sales! My favorite part was meeting other photographers in the area from the BabeCharlotte group on FB. It’s an AMAZING group for anyone starting out and there is no shame posting any question you have on there. Some of my favorite ladies like Avonne and Hilary were there too from North Carolina!
A few weeks before this workshop Phylicia messaged me and said one of her male models dropped out! She asked me to help her find someone for this elopement. With my connections to working at Belk, I texted my friend Dylan in North Carolina, and bam! He was able to make it! She gave me a shout-out during her talk and I was so surprised to have a thank you in front of EVERYONE! All I saw was helping a friend.
As for our AMAZING VENDORS, Phylicia got the best of the best! Some vendors for this North Carolina Elopement I already knew like Meagan Kelly, and Honey Silks. But I am SO happy to have met some new ones like Glammed and Groomed, The Antique, and Vintage Soul Floral Design. It made me laugh when Phylicia said “Yes, I am being extra dot com for this elopement! You don’t have to with styled shoots but that is just me!”. What was amazing is that she was SO ORGANIZED!! I have no idea how she does it.
Our venue was Carolina Country Weddings for this Elopement in North Carolina. They were so sweet in letting us use their space in the cold wind and inside! Seriously a beautiful space if you are looking for a venue for your weddings or elopements in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. I cannot wait to go back to this venue for another elopement in the future!
