Bridal portrait location help!

Hi, I'm a bride to be near Charlotte (about 40 minutes west) and am looking for areas that would make for gorgeous bridal photographs. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm open for anything that gives a timeless look, from parks to fields, etc. ... anything! So please spit out any and every idea you have.

    You can always check out the NC Bio, but I think Duke Gardens is beautiful!

    Kings Mountain? I haven't been a long time... What are you near? Sounds like fun!

    I'm between Gastonia and Hickory, so I'm up for anything around there. Where in Kings Mountain would be a good place?

    I don't know how far you are willing to go, but Old Salem (Salem College) has some of the most beautiful gardens and fountains in the Spring. Also, Reynolda Gardens near Wake Forest University is very beautiful--there's a park area, field area, old mansion, and many rows and rows of exotic and native flowers in the gardens. I went to school in the area, and I recommend both places.

    Oh my goodness...Ariana - It's Katherine, Nancy's daughter from Gastonia, from "the Nuts". I can't believe you're getting married!!!!

    Anyway - what about Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden? It would be perfect! :) It's beautiful, and there are lots of different shots you can get at that one location.

    I had my portraits taken at the Van Landingham Estate. It is a beautiful place will lovely grounds. Plus you can take some pics in the house if you want.
