We just returned from a trip down south to Charlotte, North Carolina. I don’t talk about Charlotte much, but it’s where both mr. fleurishing and I lived for many years, met, and married. We went down to spend time with Parker’s family (in celebration of his 40th), built around a business conference he had. It was a busy week, but we made time to visit the estate where we were married in 2009. Built in 1913, the Van Landingham Estate is an escape in the heart of Charlotte, and it won us over with it’s character + gorgeous gardens. We hadn’t been back since then, so bringing our children there was really special. It was a beautiful day, and you better believe I brought my camera to capture Henry + Marie there.
One of my favorite wedding photos was taken in that very spot where Marie is standing – it’s so weird and amazing for our children to now be photographed there! I seriously cannot get over Marie’s curls – she wakes up like that, with perfectly coiffed ringlets. Of course, the humidity that is still lingering down south made them even more amazing. It’s so hard to narrow the photos down…I’m not sure mother’s should also be (their own) editors, ha. This is as edited as I can manage.
