Married in The City-A Styled Shoot Photos by Michelle Flowers Photography

Posted on November 25, 2016 at 2:15 PM


Married in the City...Charlotte that is!
Welcome to "Married in the City" a styled photo shoot produced by My Eventful Life Event Planning Company with the help of the absolute best wedding and event vendors in Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding area! The shoot is featuring Myeisha and Jay (real couple) engaged to be married in a 2018 destination wedding. Myeisha Hamilton and John Henderson so graciously agreed to be our models in the styled photo shoot and were able to capture some incredibly beautiful engagement shots in the process. This day was sheer perfection!

I wanted this shoot to come as close to resembling a real wedding celebration as humanly possible sans the stress. I also wanted the set to come with the formality of an actual photo shoot. I wanted for everyone to step on set and feel the pressure to perform for the cameras. I know that sounds all Hollywood and is actually the opposite of how a great cinematographer, photographer or director for that matter feels so good thing everyone was completely relaxed. This resulted in some absolutely beautiful shots! I also wanted people to walk by and wonder, is this an actual wedding ceremony? Is this a wedding reception? Or is this a wedding celebration that just cropped up out of the blue at Metropolitan. The answers to that is yes, yes, and YES! This "wedding" was a brides dream...it took place in the center of one of Charlotte's most popular uptown venues on a stunning Saturday afternoon in September under the Carolina Blue sky. And most importantly it was fun and without stress.


Just as any other opportunity to show off our skills, all of the vendors brought their "A" game. We even had a casting call for extras (orchestrated by Keema Mingo of Mingo Studios) for a few "guests" other than actual family and friends to come by the shoot to pose as wedding guests. This made for a shoot that is unparalleled and never before seen in the Charlotte Wedding Industry. This was just plain fun!


The shoot is inspired by the hit show Sex in the City…hence the title "Married in the City". Just like Carrie and Mr. Big in the Big Apple, this couple loves their city and wants it all. Including love! The hope is that this shoot inspires local brides to hire those vendors that see your vision and are willing to take everything up a notch. That was this team. This theme will likely attract the millennial bride, the couple that wants some traditional elements for their wedding or event but also wants some trendy, hot off the runway inspired elements as well. This setting is for the Charlotte Bride that loves this city and wants to be its muse. We wanted to inspire local wedding and event clients to go on this journey with us, I wanted this shoot to also be a thought provoking platform for others. We want to hear "I want my wedding/celebration to look just like that in Charlotte, and include all of the same products and services".



Both Myeisha and Jay are Charlotte natives, and we wanted to utilize their beautiful city of Charlotte as our backdrop. We found an uptown venue that is somewhat secluded by right dead in the center of it all. The Metropolitan is surrounded by a new greenway that is full of mature and lush greenery sitting perfectly as our framework for the day. The site is a revitalized area of Charlotte that unless you have been around for a while, you would not know that it used to be called Midtown Square Mall. Historically, this was the place for all of Charlotte to shop and eat. This is still the case today. The venue was the perfect setting for love, laughter and joy. We started the shoot at 11:00 am and the sun cooperated for us and continued to peek out for us at the most opportune times.


How We Achieved the Overall Aesthetics of the Shoot

We had stunning views of the city of Charlotte, a buzzing uptown vibe, beautiful floral designs, signature cocktails, sexy desserts, hip and happening attire, a professional MUA on set and two professional photographers, gorgeous rentals, custom stationery designs, one of a kind accessories, a lot of bling and an overall socially conscious vibe that takes in all that Charlotte has to offer.

Here we have it the most dedicated, professional, creative vendors in all of Charlotte. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of them for lending their expertise on this day.

Others can achieve a hardon but cannot maintain it during sexual intercourse. Once you discover the most effective natural cures, it is possible to once more have full power over your sexual pleasures.
