Elegant and Classy Events | Wedding Rental Company

We met Ethan and Sommer, owners of Elegant and Classy Events, at the Providence Cotton Mill Open House. The Providence Cotton Mill is a 150 year old mill in Catawba, and has just opened as a new wedding venue. We had the pleasure of photographing some promotional images during their first EVER wedding and then we were invited back to attend their Open House.

Ethan and Sommer have warehouse locations in Charlotte, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC and they are serving all areas in between including Lake Norman, Mooresville, Statesville, Hickory, Lenoir, Columbia, SC and more!

What really impressed me about this rental company was the huge variety of options they offered. From elegant to rustic, with bling or classically simple, in just about every color you could imagine, a bride will find everything she needs to fit her theme. Need to rent some Mason Jars?

Twigs and Twine | Hickory Florist

We met Leslie and Susan at the Providence Cotton Mill Open House. Leslie Deal and Susan Patry are the owners of Twigs and Twine Floral Design and we were so impressed with the beauty of their designs and their professional yet personable demeanor, we instantly hit it off with them and have already added them to our preferred vendor list!

As co-owner and Lead Designer, Leslie oversees all the details that a bride envisions to create a beautiful backdrop to her big day. From bouquets, to centerpieces, to accent pieces, Twigs and Twine can provide floral decor and more to coordinate with any wedding theme from elegant to rustic and everything in between.

What really impressed me about this Newton based florist was the versatility of styles they offer. The gorgeous earthy table setting and stunning candle display displayed here were both custom made by Leslie's father! They serve all surrounding areas including (but not limited to!) Catawba, Hickory, Lenoir, Morganton, Statesville, and Mooresville with all points in between.

They can be reached by email or phone at 704-325-0557. Be sure and tell them Sheri Allison Photography sent you!

Michael and Cammie | Hickory Area Engagement Session

I met Cammie at the 2015 Statesville Bridal Expo and she came in to the studio a few days later. Considering the fact that we chatted for 3 hours during that consultation, I think it's safe to say we hit it off!

I had the pleasure of meeting her groom when we met up for Engagement Photos. We started out at T.H. Broyhill Park in Lenoir, and then we traveled to Boone to Cammie's grandparent's house. 

Many couples ask why we recommend an engagement session. After all, won't we have a ton of photos from the wedding? For me, one of the reasons is just to get to know the groom and to get him comfortable being in front of the camera. Many guys have never had professional photos done, or if they have, it's likely been a long time. The engagement session is just a fun time for the couple to connect with one another and just enjoy some downtime before the wedding.

Such was the case with Michael and Cammie! We spent the afternoon laughing, joking, and enjoying a beautiful Spring day while we created the first professional portraits they've had together.

Alonso y Grecia | Statesville Wedding Photographer

When we first met Alonso and Grecia, they had never had professional photographs done together. You'd never know it by looking at their engagement photos. I knew we'd have a wonderful time at their wedding, and I was so right! 

Their traditional catholic ceremony at their home church in Mt. Airy was very sweet. After some family portraits, we headed to one of my favorite properties to create some stunning images of just the two of them. Following that, we headed to the Statesville Civic Center for their reception and what a party that was!

The bride had commissioned Creative Designs Flowers and Gifts for the reception decor and they did a phenomenal job in transforming the space into a romantic and elegant venue. Crystals, sparkles, chic colors of ivory and cream, striking sheer drapery, uplighting - it all brought Grecia's vision for her dream day to life!
