A Sleek Wedding in Downtown Charlotte, North Carolina

Modern sleek wedding in downtown Charlotte North Carolina! Antonia is a makeup artist and works in the wedding industry. Joe is an attorney and practices law in Columbia SC.

He proposed to her in Savannah Ga December 2019 when they were there on their dating anniversary. He told her they were doing photos and he ended up proposing during the shoot and their families were all waiting nearby.

They wanted a modern, urban wedding and Charlotte NC was the perfect backdrop for their epic wedding!

From the bride: We knew from the moment we got engaged that we wanted a clean, chic wedding vibe that turned into a nightclub for the reception! For our colors we opted for black and white with touches of gold to keep the modern and upscale look.

We kept our decor very minimal and sleek not only to fit our theme but also to help on costs! Instead of having our signage made, I did all of our signage myself! We also decided to skip a seating chart and let everyone sit wherever they wanted to!

We kept all of our florals white for a super crisp, fresh look! Our hashtag was #OnCloudWideman and we incorporated baby’s breath “clouds” hanging from the ceiling as a play on our hashtag!

We are BIG rap music fans. One of our favorite personalized touches was we hired an incredible violinist to play strings versions of popular rap songs during our cocktail hour!

I knew that I wanted a sleek, fitted wedding gown. Some of my must haves were off the shoulder, a long train and a low back! Joseph is a former college athlete and he often has a hard time finding clothing that fits him. Since our wedding is a once in the lifetime occasion, we splurged on getting him a custom tuxedo through Enzo Custom!

Our first look was hands down the best part of our wedding day. Having that private, intimate moment “just us” before getting married was so special and I am so glad we opted for a first look. We got to soak in just being together on our day after nearly two years of planning. Not to mention the photos from our first look are my favorite photos from the whole day!

It’s cliche, but don’t sweat the small stuff! At the end of the day, you get to marry your best friend and that’s all that matters! Our day was perfectly imperfect!
