When I first met with Stephanie and Hunter and asked them about how they got engaged they mentioned that it happened at the Conestee Nature Park, one of my favorite local spots to go for a quick run or walk. With miles of boardwalks, trails, a lake and a marshland there is definitely lots of nature to take in. It turned out to be an awesome choice! With all the trees and water, it definitely kept things much cooler as well as provided a gorgeous backdrop to capture their engagement session. Check it out!

Vietnamese Chinese Wedding at the Greenville Hellenic Center

I’m still completely stuffed from Minh and My Hanh’s wedding this past weekend. Yes I know that was a few days ago, but after 10 courses of gourmet Chinese & Vietnamese cuisine at their reception, its easy to understand why. Seriously some of the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding (which says a lot!).

So how was the rest of their wedding you ask? Well, it was a blast. With plenty of fun loving bridesmaids and groomsmen, some great music and dancing, and plenty of beautiful cultural touches during their reception at the Greenville Hellenic Center, it was definitely a memorable day. My Hanh sported three different dresses throughout the evening (including a gorgeous bright red one for most of the reception!) and Minh looked great in his custom fitted suit. The night ended with a beautiful sparkler exit as Minh and My Hanh ran off into the night. Check it out:

Sometimes my clients just really amaze me. I mean, common… if you photographed me in 100 degree heat, in a suit jacket for two hours… there is no way I could look as good as Chloe and Julious did. I didn’t even have to photoshop any sweat out! I’m not sure how they did it, or if they just sweat only on the inside, but we pulled off an incredible shoot even with the triple digit temperatures. Julious and Chloe (and their entourage of family that came along) were so much fun to work with that it made my job so easy. I’m curious to see if it can get any better for their wedding next May when the weather is actually decent! Until then, enjoy these photos:

Furman Chapel and Huguenot Mill Loft Wedding | Kristen + Derek

Some weddings make me feel like I should have been in a fraternity during college. I mean, you get all these new “family” members and they really seem to look out for each other. Kristen, an avid member of her sorority in college definitely had her posse there in full. With 8 brides maids, and 4 honorary bridesmaids, along with plenty of other sorority sisters as friends it was definitely a fun time. Derek wasn’t doing too bad either, with 8 groomsmen himself.

And with all those great people around, all that was left was to have a good time! We started off at the Furman Chapel in the center of Furman’s gorgeous greenville campus. After a beautiful ceremony we all headed downtown to the Huguenot Mill Loft. An absolutely gorgeous setup set the stage for plenty of great dancing, food, and of course, some sorority songs. It all ended with a beautiful sparkler exit as they drove off into the night in a stunning white Ferrari convertible. Check it out:
