A Sunday Brunch Wedding in Uptown Charlotte

Summer Stegall + Josh McMillan | Nov 26, 2017

Summer and Josh met in November 2010 while Summer was visiting Charlotte for the weekend. They started dating and Josh knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her and planned the perfect proposal. Details were arranged and Summer came to visit NC from Georgia to spend a weekend with Josh’s mother. The two were in Asheville and took a tour of the Biltmore Estate. After the tour, they walked to another part of the sprawling property where Summer was surprised to see family and friends from Ohio, Georgia, NC, and SC – and Josh! He proposed right then and there!

Exactly seven years (to the day!) from when they first met, Summer and Josh exchanged vows on a picture-perfect Sunday in November at the Charlotte Marriott City Center Hotel captured by Austin Garnette Photography. Although they had originally planned on having a destination wedding in Puerto Rico, Hurricane Maria made them come up with an alternate plan and they had a beautiful mid-day brunch themed wedding that was simple and elegant, just like Summer envisioned. The décor was modern yet simple with hints of ivory and gold with light pink accents. Gorgeous light pink florals complimented their color scheme and venue and truly brought a feel of romantic, elegant simplicity to the day. Summer was given away by her father and her 15-year-old son, Jordan, and both were absolutely elated to share that special moment with such a special lady! After the short and sweet ceremony, guests were served mimosas and everyone had the best time dancing the afternoon away.  It was the perfect wedding day and Summer and Josh had the best time!
