April & Tyler are Married! {Old Wide Awake Plantation Wedding}

by JenB

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. Congrats April and Tyler!

Jenn & Chuck are Married! {A couple of weeks after session}

by JenB

So Jenn and Chuck were actually married February 23 at Old Wide Awake Plantation. The day of the wedding they had some rain, not just a little rain, but so much rain the wedding was nicknamed the “Monsoon Wedding 2013″ by Jenn. They still had an amazing wedding and reception, but we were not able to take very many outdoor photos. Last Saturday we got our chance. Thank you Kelly Campbell www.charlestonmakeup.com/ for waking up early on Saturday to do Jenn’s makeup and Margaret at Old Wide Awake www.oldwideawakeplantation.com/ for letting us borrow the house for the morning!














Erika and Michael are Married!!

by JenB

Yesterday at 4:30 pm, Erika and Michael were married at Old Wideawake Plantation www.oldwideawakeplantation.com.  WOW!  There are some weddings where everything is magical–the bride and groom are just awesome, the weather is perfect,  the location is just breathtaking.. this was one of those weddings!  Erika is an event planner so I knew that she would plan a fabulous day- and she did!  There were so many cool details that she had done.  My favorite was the “guess what Erika and Michael will be doing in 5, 10, and 25 years.” (See below for one of the guests answers!)  Even the flowers, which were so well done by Richard Meiberg were stunning.  Erika’s hair was done by Jen at Save the Date Studio and she did a super job-it was gorgeous!  Tom from Lee Edwards Entertainment www.leeedwardsentertainment.com kept the dance floor rocking and rolling all night long.  The food looked and smelled delicious and was catered by Granville’s www.granvillescafeandcatering.com.  This was my first time to the Old Wideawake Plantation, and I hope to get back again soon!  Congratulations Erika and Michael!  Have a wonderful honeymoon!
