I first met with Therese (author of Charlotte Brides) at Sunflower Bakery to talk about what could be super fun to create for brides in Charlotte to really benefit from! Air Fitness came up and we knew this one would be really special.
Kerri Flannigan owns Air Fit Charlotte in Myers Park and South Park... and MUD Facial bar which is in the same space as the South Park Studio. Charlotte loves this concept and so do I... it just makes sense!
This concept is to inspire girls to stay stress-free leading up to their wedding day and it made sense to work with this incredible line-up of vendors to create perfect de-stress/activity/even wedding morning bliss! Wether you want to host a party the morning of your wedding with a sunrise class and a facial for everybody or if you want to make your bachelorette party weekend exciting and relaxing at the same time you can get a little visual with the ladies at the studio. Paige and Elliot provided the STUNNING gowns (and robes!) that are literally about to blow you away with detail and energy for the AIR team as they #airpow and play around in their beautiful gowns. Bridesmaid dresses came from the one and only Bella Bridesmaid (located on East Blvd.) in Charlotte and worked so perfectly with the vibrant details the studio had to offer. Florals by Ashley over at Bookout Blooms for a huge visual win...adding the perfect vibe for a girls day.
I just want to let you know all I wanted to do the whole time was eat this cake, which can be made VEGAN or GF for those of you brides out there with restrictions... Gateau Baking Company has your back ladies. #justsayin
Other amazing details for your party and wedding would be to add in Fresh Juice or Juice Bar from Viva Raw.... also, decorate your entire wedding (& I literally mean the whole thing!!) with custom Moss Art by The Savage Way, and please hire a videographer for your wedding (Andrey Solo Films kills it...see-video-below-and-loose-your-mind.) I want to emphasize the video part, having your vows, speeches, voices of your parents and friends... those things are priceless and I personally am just a huge advocate of re-living your day with soulful photography and well done cinematography.
Styled Shoots are meant to help brides and grooms understand what to expect from the planning process and give you amazing ideas from the best of the best and I am so excited to share this with everybody and do just that! Okay after all of that here are the photos!!! They are SO fun, feel free to share this with all of your Charlotte Bride-to-be friends.... they will LOVE this idea!
