Brittany & Brian- the Umstead

Spring is in the air and Ivy Robinson has pointed her magic wand the Umstead Hotel & Spa to create an unforgettable experience not only for this couple, but for their family and guests.

I've never seen this level of awesomeness packed into one wedding.  The florals from Kelly Odom were spectacular and Brian even surprised Brittany with a same day video at the beginning of the reception done by the rock star team at Heart Stone Films.  

When the goal is to create an experience, timing is everything.  The instant their video was complete, the huge screen did a kabuki drop to reveal the band.  The music and lights fired up and suddenly the room went from teary-eyed nostalgia to feet on fire dancing.

Well done everyone!

How will history remember you? Okay, that's heavy, and we just met, so I'll take the pressure off and begin again by introducing myself. My mission is to help you answer that first question. I want to show you and your world in a way you haven't seen before and at some point hopefully incite a small riot inside your head. An unapologetic Gen-X warrior for self-expression, I help people tell their stories. Not just the pretty and polished, "made for Linkedin" version, but the real essence of their legacy. At my core, I'm a visual artist. The still photographic image has been my story telling medium for decades. Now I use words, images and on the rare occasion images in motion to push others to be more, do more and express more than they originally thought was reasonable. Are you still reading this? Really? I'm impressed. Moving on... I am Southern, though not fried. In my view, Bar-b-que should be enjoyed with any sauce on hand at the time. There is no need to quibble over which style of sauce best compliments. The real question is, "slaw or hushpuppies?" The correct answer is, "yes!".
