We have been holding onto this awesome city-chic wedding sent to us by Kristin Vining of Weddings And The City…forever.  Just as we were about to post it, we got word that it was the Cover Feature in the Winter ’09 issue of Carolina Bride. Finally, it hit the newstands and now, we can share!

Brooke and Chris were married in Charlotte, North Carolina, this past September in a dreamy rooftop ceremony on The Terrace at the Mint Museum of Craft & Design. What a great venue for a wedding!

Before we get to the wedding, though, we simply must show you a few photographs from the bridal shoot that Brooke and Kristin had in New York City (a birthday gift to Brooke from Chris)! Isn’t she absolutely gorgeous?

Keep an eye out for more of Brooke’s beautiful bridal shoot photos seen throughout the post …

What little we know about Brooke’s gown comes from the fine print of the Carolina Bride Magazine posted on Kristin’s blog. Her breathtaking wedding dress is by Cymbeline/France.

We originally showed you Brooke’s shoes way back in November in one of our Wedding Shoes posts on the Little Black Book Blog.

If this young lady isn’t headed to hollywood, yet … I think we need to pull some strings to get her there!

Again, the article about Chris and Brooke’s wedding is story-book perfect. He proposed on bended knee at 11:30 on New Year’s Eve after a walk through the snow at Lake Tahoe. Brooke, immediately asked Kristin Vining to be their photographer and hired Kristin’s Wedding Planning Company, Weddings And The City, to assist her with the wedding plans. Her avid fascination with Audrey Hepburn translated into a luscious rooftop wedding filled with an abundance of stunning pink flowers and pink and chocolate silk linens. Floral design provided by Taylor O’Shields at The Place For Flowers.

Thank you SO much, Kristin, for sending Brooke and Chris’s wedding our way! Love, love, love it!
