Quail Hollow Club Wedding Photographer || Ginnie & Austen

Ginnie and Austen – where do I even begin?! These two and their Quail Hollow Club wedding this past spring was a true highlight of 2022! Ginnie and I first met when I had just moved to Charlotte from Charleston. She was working at the Duke Mansion and the girls there were my first true vendor friends in the area! When she and Austen got engaged, I was OVER the moon when she asked me to be their wedding photographer!

Ginnie and Austen began dating 7 years ago while they were in college. Ginnie was a sophomore at USC and Austen a junior at App State. They met through a mutual friend that Austen went to high school with and who, coincidentally, was a good girlfriend of Ginnie’s in her sorority. Their mutual friend set them up for her last sorority function of the year and the rest was truly history. These two dated long distance for about 3 years of their relationship. Together, they finally settled down in Charlotte after Ginnie graduated! In December of 2020, Austen popped the question right after Thanksgiving. Ginnie and Austin were on a sweet mountain getaway with just them two and their dog, Henry! It was absolutely perfect.

Quail Hollow Club Wedding with Classic Details

This wonderful wedding design was inspired by the colors of springtime in Charlotte and a whimsical wallpaper design the bride fell in love with.  The Bloom Room brought our couple’s vision to life with lush white blooms and a reception ceiling dripping with live greenery. The wallpaper was featured on the front of Ginnie and Austen’s custom bar that Dan Planning made. It served as inspiration for their invitations, too! They had a coordinating pattern designed by Olive Paper in their envelope liners. Beige lounge furniture with lush, green pillows and overhanging chandeliers with natural greenery woven throughout were the perfect ode to the original wallpaper design during the reception. One of my favorite sentimental parts of the wedding day was that Ginnie and Austen were married in the same church that her parents were married in 30 years ago.

Ginnie and Austen were truly a dream couple. They’re about all things gracious, kind, and fun! Katrina of Katrina Hutchins Events always creates true masterpieces for her clients’ wedding designs and this one was no different. It was absolutely beautiful – and I hope you’ll enjoy looking through it today!
