Shannon & Bryon | Intimate, Vintage-Inspired Wedding in Concord, NC
Wedding: 8 March 2020 | Posted: 10 March 2020
Shannon & Bryon are married! We are so excited to have had the opportunity to celebrate with them this past weekend, and are excited to share a peek at their day—read on!
The day started at the beautiful Mount Olivet Methodist Church in Concord. Not only are Shannon's parents and grandparents all members—not only did Shannon grow up in this church—but Shannon's great-grandparents got married here, too, making her and Bryon the fourth generation to join their lives together at this beautiful little location. Keep an eye out for all the gorgeous stained glass, and particularly for our attempted recreation of one of Shannon's parents' wedding photos!
It was a gorgeous Sunday, the sunny-and-temperate likes of which North Carolinians know not to expect from March, but it delivered nonetheless; the church was warm and inviting, the makeup was flawless, the varying shades of green in the bridesmaids' dresses were earthy and elegant, and the ceremony was deeply emotional—Bryon's best man passed him a much-needed handkerchief as Shannon made her way down the aisle and there was much polite sniffling and eye wiping throughout the assembled guests. In one of the absolute sweetest moments of the day (at least in my opinion!), Shannon & Bryon wept together immediately upon exiting the church, holding each other in joy and relief and overwhelm at finally being married.
Once we had gotten some portraits of the wedding party and our darling newlyweds on the gorgeous church grounds, we headed over to the sweet and intimate reception spot to celebrate! We nabbed some sunset shots, ate some late-night-snack popcorn, toasted, danced, and enjoyed some of the prettiest cupcakes I've ever seen; after sharing a sweet last dance, Shannon & Bryon made a nod to their nerdy roots by exiting very emphatically to the Imperial March (Darth Vader's theme, for those of you who are slightly less nerdy), heading right for their honeymoon in Asheville!
We are so thrilled to have captured these memories for Shannon & Bryon, and wish them a lifetime of happiness in which, hopefully, their sweet, obvious, and complete adoration of each other never fades. Enjoy a selection of favorites from their wedding day, and congratulate the new Mr. & Mrs. Ecker in the comments!
