Thinking Of Having a Charlotte Wedding? Fusion Photography Knows The Queen
Jan 31, 2019 | By: Fusion Photography
Did you get a chance to read our post about Charlotte City Club? If not, you can check it out here. We think the CCC is a totally gorgeous venue for your Charlotte wedding. And we're thrilled to introduce you to one of our beautiful couples who said 'I Do' in style at CCC. Erin and Dom met at a recruiting event at Penn State - go Lions - but lived in separate states (North Carolina and Texas) so they started as friends. We just love how some of the strongest relationships start out that way! But enough about us - meet Erin and Dom.
How did you meet?
Erin: We met through our work, Ingersoll Rand. We both help recruit for our early talent program and Dom decided to go to Penn State to help recruit. While at recruiting the whole team spends all week together working the career fairs during the day and going to all of our favorite bars at night. We spent a lot of time together that week and ended up becoming instant friends. Dom was living in Texas at the time for our program and I was in Mooresville. We stayed close and talked all of the time. He then moved to Charlotte the following February. One thing led to another and we started dating that July and have been together ever since (for a little over two years).
True details of how I met Dom: I was at the first recruiting event and kept hearing "Has anyone seen Dom?" and I just kept thinking who is this Dom character and what happened to him? It turns out that our good friend took Dom on an impromptu bar tour in State College on the Sunday leading up to all of the career fairs and Dom may have had a little bit too much to drink and managed to get lost and didn't have a hotel key to the room he was staying in. He ended up having to buy another hotel room that night and had lost his phone so no one heard from him until he just casually walked up to the event about 20 minutes late. He owned his "walk of shame." He then proceeded to eat about 8 ice cream cones. This is when I learned Dom has never gotten a true hangover.
Erin: It was a normal Friday at work and I assumed Dom would be at work late (he is normally at work later than I am) so I decided to run some errands that had been on my list. I finally headed home with leftover pizza in one hand, work bag and purse in the other. I unlocked the door and on the other side was Dom in a suit jacket on one knee with flower petals and candles everywhere. I was so shocked the door accidentally shut and I was still standing in the hallway. I started to shake a bit and finally got enough courage to open the door. Dom then asked me to marry him. After saying yes and calling all of our family he told me I needed to get showered and be ready by 7 pm. He wouldn't tell me where we were going, but then once in the uber after one turn I figured out what restaurant we were going to. We arrived to Sullivan's where we had our first official date. We walked up to the desk and said Dominic and they said "party of two?" and I of course nodded. They took us around the corner and I immediately stopped with my jaw dropped. He had managed to get my entire family as well as the majority of his to come to Charlotte to surprise me. It was the best weekend of my life.
We love when everything comes together. Dom and Erin's Charlotte wedding was the perfect mix of elegance and fun. And in addition to capturing their wedding on camera, we also captured it on video and we even got to be a part of the process before the big day - we shot their engagement photos.
