Shooting Morgan and Nav's luxurious wedding day at The Ruth, located in the heart of Charlotte, was nothing short of a dream. The venue, with its popularity and charm, was the perfect background for their wedding. It perfectly encapsulated their vibrant and infectious personalities. Every corner of the venue was filled with elegance, perfectly mirroring their unique style. The wedding itself was a beautiful blend of their Jamaican and Italian roots. It was a day full of traditions and love. Each moment was a testament to their unity. Their chosen theme for the day? Old money, and Morgan's style inspo was no other than Marilyn Monroe. And trust me when I say it was as fabulous as it sounds! The environment was filled with glamour and sophistication. The timeless elegance of the theme was reflected in every detail - from the timeless and elegant decor to the stunning outfits, everything screamed classy and high-end. Fun fact: this wedding was published on Munaluchi Bride Magazine, come check it out here!

Luxurious Wedding Day at The Ruth

From the moment I arrived, I knew this wedding was going to be unique. Their décor was luxurious and modern, leaning heavily into that old-money vibe. Think high-end luxury with a fresh twist. The details were insane. I took traditional flat lays, while also mixing in some creative film edits and flash photography for that extra edge. With a large bridal party and limited outdoor space, we got creative with the portraits. We utilized the unique features of The Ruth, particularly the bar. The photos turned out amazing and full of personality, just like the couple. Morgan and Nav were a dream to work with. Morgan was a natural in front of the camera, and Nav was just as comfortable. They were down for whatever it took to get the good shots. The best part? They trusted me, giving me free, creative direction and it truly paid off.

The post-ceremony portraits were lovely, but the ones that we took at the bar during the reception? Those were next level. These photos truly embodied Morgan and Nav as a couple – fun, vibrant, and madly in love. The reception was something else! I've never seen so many people dancing at a wedding in my life. This couple was so cool. They were proud of their heritage and excited to share their special day with their families. Despite it being a huge wedding, it still felt intimate because of the incredible attention to detail and intentionality put into planning and organizing.
