I am so so so excited to FINALLY show off Mindy and Charlie’s wedding pictures. Mindy has been a long time friend, supporter and friend of me and All Angles. I couldn’t be more happy for her and the amazing life she is starting with her wonderful hubby.
Mindy has always been one of the sweetest and most kind people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I didn’t think it would ever be possible for her to find someone to love her they way she deserves to be loved. But then came Charlie. He too is unbelievably thoughtful, considerate, funny, kind, charming, and every bit and more of the type of man that Mindy needs. These two make the world a much better place just by being in it. I am blessed to call them my friends, and was so thrilled when they asked us to document their wedding day.
They are such an easy-going couple. The day, like most wedding days, was not without it’s challenges but Mindy and Charlie never let it rattle them. They smiled, laughed, and enjoyed every moment of their big day no matter what the challenge because they knew this day was about celebrating the beginning of the rest of their lives together and not just focusing on the events of the wedding itself. So a little rain, and December temps weren’t going to scare us or them away…so off we went. I’m so pleased with how these photos turn out. I hope you guys love them too!
I just love these hangers!
Challenge #1: As Mindy is putting her dress on we realize that the corset strap is MIA. We look everywhere, call the valet, have them bring the car up so we can check the car, tear apart the hotel room, look in every garment bag…NOTHING. So everyone gets on their phones and starts calling the bridal shop (to see if we can get another one), the cleaners (thinking they may have forgot to put it back after steaming the dress), friends (to see if we can borrow theirs). It was crazy! Mindy was juggling calls and handing off phones like a professional! But Mindy didn’t want to waste any photo time, so we safety-pinned the back of the dress and just promised not to take any shots from the back until we found a new strap!
And we doubt, had we not told you the above story, you would’ve never known based on these images!
Girl, you are so stunning.
Finally a strap arrived! So we tied it up and headed back out for some more shots while we had a break in challenge #2…the weather!
I honestly don’t think you could be more beautiful.
Mindy and Charlie had arranged for a trolly to transport them and their bridal parties around….it was so awesome!
The first moments of a first look are my favorite. We love love love capturing the raw emotions of this moment.
Charlie is such a great guy. He had 16 guys stand up with him at the wedding. To us, that is such a testament to how good of a friend you are that you have that many guys willing to standup with you and witness your vows. Way to be awesome, Charlie. You keep faith alive for every single girl out there, that good guys still do exist!
And you’re handsom too!
Check out this huge bridal party! They were such good sports about going in and out of the rain with us! You guys rock!

JuLi Creations did an amazing job with the cake.
Aren’t you jealous you didn’t have the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys do music for your cocktail hour?
And the rest of the night the party was kept hoppin’ by the Skyline Drive Band! Everyone had such a great time!
I was so excited to sneak in a pic with the bride!
