It was absolutely fitting for Adam and Emily to have their reception at a venue called “Zen.” Why you ask? Because while most people are borderline crazy/scared/shaking or just about to have a nervous breakdown in that hour before they are going to finally get married, Adam and Emily were completely the opposite. Calm, cool, and confident in what they were signing up for. “You just have to let go, and enjoy the day” Emily said to me, a feeling and mentality I wish all brides would embrace. When you aren’t worrying about the little things it just allows you to really truly enjoy, and experience your day.

And I’m pretty confident both Emily and Adam thoroughly enjoyed their day based on the huge smiles they had just about the entire day. It’s easy to see why. After a beautiful ceremony at Trinity Lutheran Church in Downtown Greenville everyone headed to Zen for a fun reception filled with plenty of food, dancing, excellent drinks, and even more excellent friends and family.

Lowndes Grove Plantation Charleston Wedding Photos | Sara + Kevin

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.
