Langtree Plantation Wedding | Lake Norman
Ashley & Manny | Highlight Film
At last, a break in the endless rain! Ashley and Manny’s wedding day at the Historic Langtree Plantation was gorgeous for oh so many reasons. For starters, the weather was absolutely perfect. The sun was shining brightly and the air had a slight crispness of spring waiting around the corner. The beauty of the Langtree home beamed brightly as the sun poured over the massive front porches. Ashley, the oh-so-lovely, joyous bride gathered upstairs and spent the morning being pampered with her darling bridesmaids and mother.
Meanwhile, the team at Jackie Fogartie Events were working vigilantly to prepare the barn and reception hall at Langtree Plantation with lovely decor and stunning florals. The bouquets and floral arrangements that Willow Branch Flowers and Design brought out were absolutely charming.
Good Friends Old and New
Over at the Provenzano’s Lake Norman home, Manny and his guys spent the day soaking up sunbeams and getting dapper with their custom-made attire. We were so excited to see the Provenzano family once again after having met them at Ashley and John’s wedding in the Lake Norman area.
A Darling Set of First Looks
After slipping into her stunning Ladies of Lineage dress, Ashley was both excited and nervous to share a first-look with her father. Waiting quietly in the upstairs bedroom, she stood quietly until he finally peaked his head in and was instantly blown away. The two embraced in a sweet, heartfelt hug and Ashley proceeded to “pull a fast one” on dad, by revealing a precious photo of the two of them sewn on the back of her father’s tie.
Down in the gardens Manny awaited his turn to see his soon-to-be, striking bride. This go-round, Ashley had much more excitement and confidence as she strutted her way toward her man. A tap of the shoulder, a spin of the heels, and Manny’s jaw instantly lay forever in the mulch of the English inspired gardens. Our job was made significantly easier as these two embraced the moment and presented the opportunity for gorgeous, raw footage to be captured.
Take a ride on the Historic Langtree Plantation Trolley
While the bridal party gathered outside the garden area to capture the moment together, guests were shuttled in via the on-site trolley over to the barn for the ceremony. This classic coach is just precious for getting everyone from A to B.
Gathered in the barn for the ceremony, guests enjoyed saying hello to friends old and new. Manny’s reaction when Ashley was coming down the aisle was a tear jerker for sure. The gravity of this amazing moment settled in on his heart and there was nothing but joy-filled tears rolling down his cheek.
A Picturesque Sunset That Could Only Be Painted By God Above
Many congratulations were had just outside the barn as family and friends made their way over to the new happy couple. In addition to these beautiful moments of joy with close family members, Ashley and Manny were blessed with the most beautiful sunset shining through the amber colored fields of old farmland.
Teamed up with Connection Photography, we were able to capture some absolutely beautiful imagery of the new Mr. and Mrs. I’ll just let the still frames below do the talking for us.
Let's Kick This Party Off
I might be so bold as to go out on a limb and say that the party is what we all came for and everyone was thrilled to get on the dance floor and bust a move. As soon as Sol Fusion kicked off the dancing, guests couldn’t stop themselves from shaking their booties. With an endless stream of top-notch music and a dance floor full of boundless energy, the night was swept away into post-wedded celebratory bliss.
We were so very thankful to spend the day with the Provenzano family once again and incorporate the new addition of Ashley’s family into a full day of fun, emotion, and excitement. Congratulations Ashley and Manny!
