This fall wedding season has come in with a bang! This past few months have brought travel to Lynchburg, VA and Greenville, SC to photograph weddings and some here in Charleston. Congratulations to Sufia & Nick, Casey & Brandon, Jennifer & Paul, Molly & Will, and Ryan & Jenn. I plan on posting more from each one, but for now, a few highlights:) Congrats to all!!
Caitlin and Chris were married overlooking the marsh at the gorgeous Creek Club www.creekevents.com/club/. There were so many things I loved about this wedding and couple. I loved the fact that they were game for anything- even doing their first look on a balcony. Also, I loved the fact that the insanely talented Liz Duren was by my side photographing that day too. Most of all though- I just loved how in love this couple was. Congrats to Caitlin and Chris!

Katherine & Nick were faced with a dilemma right before ceremony time- marry inside or risk the rain shower lasting through the ceremony. They decided to wait it out a bit and the sun came out and we were able to have the ceremony down by the ocean with the most beautiful view. It was a very preppy day, with green and navy seersucker everywhere. Even her bridesmaids had the cutest green seersucker purses with their initial on it. I was lucky to have my friend the talented Leigh Webber along with me to help photograph their day. Congrats Katherine and Nick!

On Sunday Melanie and Geoff were married at the William Aiken House. Melanie and Geoff’s family and friends were so fun. I don’t ever think I have seen a crowd that could dance (and I mean REALLY dance) as well as they could. Geoff’s dad kicked off the reception with Pharell’s Happy and that might be the perfect way to describe this day. Congrats to Melanie and Geoff!

On Saturday, it might have been a rainy day here, but April and Tyler’s day was filled with warmth and love. Margaret- the onsite wedding planner at Old Wide Awake www.oldwideawakeplantation.com and I have had a few rainy day weddings now and she always delivers a wonderful day. Even with the rain, April and Tyler were able to marry under a beautiful oak down by the water. It was a fun, and sweet day. Thanks to Chelsea on her help shooting this one with me.

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to feature more full weddings on the blog this year. Kris and Jessica’s wedding at the Island House www.islandhouseevents.com is the perfect one to start with. Francesca and Blake at Pure Luxe www.pureluxebride.com chocked this wedding full of fun, colorful details. Kris’ sister has been babysitting my kids for almost 6 years now, so it felt like photographing family. What made this wedding even sweeter was having the talented Liz Duren www.lizduren.com come along to help me shoot it!
