Ritchie Hill Grand Opening, Concord NC

Ritchie Hill is a newly renovated home-turned wedding venue located near downtown Concord, NC. I am so excited to work with brides at this venue.

Of all the historic home venues I’ve been to, this venue has some of the most natural light. This is key for my style of wedding photography and will really enhance your photos. In addition, they have decorated the home in modern, mostly neutral colors! Yes! You don’t have to worry about red carpet and floral wallpaper here!

Here are some images I took at their recent grand opening!
