Empire Room Wedding | Madison + Harsh | Part II


Madison and Harsh completed their festivities of love with a western ceremony at The Empire Room in Greensboro, NC.  We saw gorgeous touches of Madison & Harsh's personality everywhere, from the tall white feather centerpieces, to the handmade brooch bridal bouquet that pretty much had me drooling in utter photographer happiness. After having photographed their Indian wedding only days before, it was like reconnecting with new friends and the day flowed pretty much flawlessly!

Madison. Harsh. You two. We heart you. Like, a lot. You made us feel so welcome into your circle of friends and after hearing the toasts of your maid of honor and best man, we realize what an honor that really is. You two are very special people and it has been a blast being on this journey with you! 

Much Love,

The Watts

I love this image below because, well, dancing. But when Madison and Harsh saw it, they told me that THIS is the woman who brought them together, so this photo totally gets 100 awesome points!

If you saw Madison and Harsh's engagement trailer, you'll have heard the story of how they met at a ballroom dance competition, and seen their fabulous dancing on the UNC Chapel Hill campus. Well, their wedding would have been so incomplete without another gorgeous dance, and of course they did NOT disappoint.  Check out the slideshow below to see their awesome moves...
