Orlando Wedding for Charlotte, NC Couple
September 28, 2014 | Dana and Henry
Dana and Henry came down from Charlotte, NC for their destination wedding in Orlando, Fl! They brought in the creative design of Lisa from An Affair to Remember to plan their entire event. Shade of purple, candlelight and rich elegance decorated their indoor ceremony and the reception was a complete stunner – the ballroom was completely and entirely transformed with floor to ceiling drapery and rich purple uplighting. That’s a Wrap did a crisp white dancefloor and the DJs from Soundwave Entertainment made an amazing night for the guests!
Henry, who is an entrepreneur in NC, has some amazing style – sporting his own “reception shoes” from Christian Louboutin! Dana was classy and elegant with a sideswept hairstyle and diamond drop earrings.
The story of how Dana and Henry met is SO them! As told by Dana: “Henry and I met in college senior year which was around August 2004. We happened to cross paths one day on campus and he asked for my number. I, a little hesitant, asked for his number instead and agreed to call him later but never did. A few days later we met again on campus and he asked why I didn’t use the number yet and the conversation continued from there. Long story short we have been inseparable since. We dated for a while and always knew when the time was right we were going to tie the knot. Now we have grown to be best friends and we have so much fun together. So here we are!”
After the wedding, they honeymooned in Maui and are now living the dream back home in NC!
