I always knew Sara and Kevin’s wedding was going to be beautiful. After all, it was at a big southern plantation, right on the water in Charleston. But when Debra and I drove through the big iron gates of Lowndes Grove Plantation it was even better than I expected. Palm trees, live oaks, a historic southern mansion complete with all the architectural details of the day, and of course the beautiful outdoor reception setup with a stunning view of the Ashley river. It was going to be a good day.

We started off with Sara and her bridesmaids getting ready in one of the many rooms of the Lowndes Grove House. Sara looked absolutely stunning with just the right amount of style and grace. Kevin waited out on the dock outside, ready to finally see his bride. After an emotional first sighting we did some quick photos before the ceremony on the lawn overlooking the river and property. As the sun slowly set behind the trees the party started up, complete with plenty of great food, speeches, and hilarious moments. It all ended with one of the coolest exits I’ve seen: A sparkler lit exit to a boat as they rode off into the night sky. A perfect ending to one of the most picturesque weddings we have captured yet!

Courtyard Marriott and Certus Loft Greenville Wedding | Julie + Jimmy

Julie and Jimmy’s wedding wasn’t one I was completely sold on booking when they first inquired. I mean, if it didn’t sound like it was going to be a fun event, why would I want to spend my birthday photographing it? But as we talked more and more, their wedding sounded like a fun, unique event and definitely a great way to spend my birthday. They came up with a great term for their wedding which got us all laughing: It was going to be a “Jew-ish” wedding, meaning it would have some of the traditional Jewish wedding elements, without going all the way to a full orthodox wedding. That still meant plenty of yelling of “Mazel Tov!!” and getting everyone up on chairs during the Hora at the reception.

It turned out to be an amazing event, complete with a gorgeous setup and details, hilarious moments, and lots of great dancing to the sounds of the Atlanta Party Band. Julie and Jimmy even put my initials (J+J) on their wedding cake (although it did fit their initials as well)! How can you top that for a birthday!

Westin Poinsett Gold Room Wedding | Chelsea + Hunter

I always love the weddings that incorporate family traditions. Chelsea, the first of four girls in her family to get married, got to be the one to set the standard for weddings to come. We started off with Chelsea getting ready at her family’s home in Spartanburg, before the limo came to take everyone to their local church just down the road. With just their closest family in the bridal party, we took some quick photos and headed down to the beautiful Westin Poinsett Gold Room for their reception. Between some great food and dancing, we headed up to the roof top just as the sun was setting behind the blue ridge mountains. It all ended with a gorgeous sparkler laced exit as everyone said their goodbyes before Chelsea and Hunter headed off to their honeymoon.

Furman Chapel and Soby’s Brunch Wedding | Annah + Patrick

22 May 2015

I don’t know what it is about brunch that makes me so excited. Maybe its the huge selection of food (you get to pick breakfast items AND lunch items!)… or maybe it has to do with the fact you get to enjoy a little champagne in your orange juice (or… more accurately a little orange juice in your champagne!). The fact that Annah and Patrick were going to have an early morning wedding with brunch afterwards meant that we were extra excited for their wedding.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day when we met up early Saturday at Furman’s Daniel Chapel to capture Annah finishing up getting ready. Furman’s campus is always goregeous, but something about the morning light made it even more incredible. After their beautiful ceremony was completed, we headed downtown to Soby’s for their brunch wedding reception. With a few dances, a couple speeches, and a cake cutting, it was an amazing, yet quick, time to spend with their friends and family before they ran through a lavendar-toss send off on the way to their honeymoon. I’m sure they wouldn’t have had it any other way!
