Sweet Magnolia Estate Wedding | Alex and Jake

Wedding portrait at dusk outside of Sweet Magnolia Estate in Charlotte NC

Alex and Jake are some of our favorite people ever. They’re the type of people that when you meet them, they take care of you – that’s just their nature. So it’s only fitting that they found each other and had their wedding at Sweet Magnolia Estate. When we originally met them for their engagement session, they had a vibe that was fun and warm, silly but always loving, and man, did these two reflect that during their wedding day.

Alex and her mom are pretty much best friends, and we could see why. They’re *pretty* much the same person through and through. So between Alex, her mom, and her ridiculously fun bridal party, the getting ready room at Sweet Magnolia Estate was bustling with fun wedding energy!

Although windy, Alex and Jake’s wedding ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect. The outdoor setting of Sweet Magnolia Estate really makes for gorgeous pictures, and the arch and white backdrop perfectly complements the setting in front of the trees.
