Downtown Charlotte Wedding at Triple C Barrel Room | Colin and Kristi
Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today on the blog is Colin and Kristi’s downtown Charlotte wedding at the Triple C Barrel Room. They were married on October 5th 2019 on the first day that actually felt like fall. The cool breeze and clouds made the perfect condition for rooftop photos!
I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for months and months! I knew Kristi since I was a kid and had the opportunity to reconnect with her and meet her now husband while shooting Chris and Callie’s wedding in Tampa FL last summer. I was immediately struck by how attentive and Colin was to Kristi and how their personalities really complemented each other. Fast forward to a few months ago when I had the opportunity to shoot their engagement photos in Freedom Park in Charlotte. You can click HERE to see photos from that shoot. At the session, Colin told me all about how he planned the proposal and they took me to the spot where he popped the question. They are such a cute couple and I’m so glad I was able to document their big day!
Their wedding was such a sweet and relaxing event. Kristi had really wanted everything to be very casual and relaxed and it was. The Triple C Barrel Room has indoor and outdoor spaces and so people were spread out throughout the large space enjoying themselves. Suarez Bakery did a wonderful job with their beautiful ombre wedding cake and donuts in the shape of their initials, which was really cute. A few of my favorite highlights of the wedding just to name a few: The labeled bar stools for the father’s of the couple at the bar, (see below!), the toast the father of the bride gave to all his daughters, Kristi’s laughing when the officiant gave her more words to repeat than she could remember (it was such a funny moment where the whole room died laughing because she is adorable!), Colin’s groomsmen who all came from Canada (you know Canadians are the NICEST people on the planet), but I think the BEST moment of the night was the last song of the night when everyone was dancing and singing at the top of their lungs. Kristi had the DJ play “I’ll make a man out of you” from the Disney movie Mulan and it had the greatest reaction of the night!
