After traveling in Italy for the past few weeks, I wasn’t sure if I would be excited to come back to photographing weddings in the US. Would I be spoiled by all the exotic locations and beautiful artwork? Would I just want to drop everything and just travel the world? Although it was tempting at times, I’m certainly glad to be back, especially when I had a wedding like Danielle and Jeremy’s to look forward to.

Danielle and Jeremy got married this past weekend in the Gold Room at the beautiful Westin Poinsett. Although the decor and decorations were beautiful, it was even more awesome to get to work with Danielle and Jeremy again. These two are an absolute riot, and made photographing them a blast.

Mary’s Cottage Greenville Wedding | Ashleigh + Tim

I glanced down at my phone to check the weather just 20 minutes before Ashleigh and Tim’s wedding ceremony. Normally it wouldn’t matter too much, but they had planned to have their ceremony outdoors on the back patio of Mary’s Cottage, overlooking the iconic falls park in the heart of Greenville. I looked at all the guests and carefully placed decorations, and then back at my phone again. A huge line of orange and red was headed right for downtown. Maybe it will blow over I thought… after all the weather changes in an instant this time of year.

Shortly after, Ashleigh was walking down the long garden isle towards Tim with a look of excitement and anticipation only a bride could have. The weather simply didn’t come to mind at all. A beautifully dramatic ceremony unfolded, and just as the happy couple took their first steps as husband and wife, the drops started to fall. Out came the catering staff at Mary’s to rescue everything to the safety of inside. This was not what they pictured for their wedding reception.

But what seemed like a disaster at the time, quickly subsided; opening up to a stunning rainbow overhead. Shortly after, Ashleigh and Tim were dancing the night away in the middle of a Japanese lantern lit garden full of the rain-soaked glistening leaves. It couldn’t be more of a perfect ending, and a beautifully unique story to start their lives together.

I think Kathy Stinson the lead singer of The Flavor Band said it best during the beginning part of their wedding reception. “I haven’t ever seen a first dance like that before. Really, Ryan did not stop looking at his bride for one second.” And after going through the photos this past week, she was completely right. These two are enamored with each other.

Just a few hours before, Anna walked down the long isle of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Greenville, SC towards her groom, said their vows, kissed, and began their life together. A day full of sunshine, emotion, and classic elegance unfolded later at the Westin Poinsett in the heart of Greenville’s incredible downtown, with plenty of delicious food, dancing, and a flower pedal exit.

When Annah and Patrick told me they wanted their engagement shoot downtown… but not a cliche one, I was instantly inspired. So many new options exploded into my head. New ideas with new experimental techniques. Just what I needed on that humid summer afternoon wedged deep in the middle of wedding season. Throw in Patrick’s grandfather’s vintage truck, plenty of hot weather, and we had an absolute blast running all over.
