Melanie & Geoff are Married! {A William Aiken House Wedding}

by JenB

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!

Jill and Chip are Married!!

by JenB

On Saturday September 25th at 5:30 pm, Jill and Chip were married at First Scots Presbyterian Church www.first-scots.org in Charleston, SC.  A reception followed at The Carolina Yacht Club www.carolinayachtclub.com. Jill and Chip and their wedding party were awesome!  We walked from the Church to the reception and had so many wonderful spots to stop and take pictures.  At one point during our walk, four motorcycles approached and Jill and her bridesmaids got them to stop and take a couple of pictures with us.  It was my first time to get a bride on a Harley!  Right on!  Booty Call www.bootycallband.com played amazing songs that even had me tapping my foot a bit.  The evening ended with sparklers on to an awaiting boat to whisk them off into the night.  Cheers to Jill and Chip!

by JenB

This last weekend, I traveled to Portland, OR to photograph Jared and Natalie’s wedding.  They were married at St Patrick’s Church with a reception following at the Governor Hotel.  What a beautiful (and cold) weekend!  After the ceremony we had some time to stop in a few places around Portland to take some pictures.  We stopped at the tree in Pioneer Square- where they got engaged!  Thank you Nat and Jared for having me out to Portland to share this event with you, I enjoyed every minute!  Cheers to Natalie and Jared!

Meghann and Janson are Married!!

by JenB

Yesterday at 3:00 Meghann and Janson were married at Blessed Sacrament Church here in Charleston. A reception followed at McCrady’s.  Meghann’s mom is my son Jay’s preschool teacher and I was so honored when she asked me to photograph her daughter Meghann’s wedding.  Meghann and Janson were great to work with, the day was perfect!  After the ceremony, we had a little bit of time to stop at Waterfront park to take some pictures.  My friend Josh Silverman was the dj for the night at McCrady’s and he did such a fabulous job playing great music and getting everyone dancing.  Cheers to Meghann and Janson!!

Stacey and Chris are Married!

by JenB

On Saturday Stacey and Chris were married at 5:30 at the Rumbling Bald Resort in Lake Lure, NC.  I photographed Staceys sister’s wedding in May and was honored that they asked me to photograph Stacey’s wedding too.  Stacey and Chris had a real vintage vibe that I loved.. from her hairstyle, to her dress, to the old time candy bar, to their getaway car (an old GT that was so cool), to their song “All you need is love” by the Beatles.  The bridesmaids and Stacey had planned a special dance to start halfway into the father/daughter dance.  The music stopped and Tina Turner started.  The girls lit up the floor with their “Proud Mary”  dance.   There was even an old Jukebox in the house they were staying at that we took pictures in front of.  The wedding ceremony was supposed to take place near the gazebo by the lake, but the rain started pouring down and it was moved to the Terrace, which looked beautiful.  A special thank you to the Spicers for having me again, I had so much fun!  Cheers to Stacey and Chris!

Abby and Greg are Married!

by JenB

Yesterday at 5:00 Abby and Greg were married at Alhambra Hall in Mount Pleasant, SC.  A lot of Abby and Greg’s family and friends are from Chicago, and I must say, people from Chicago know how to have a good time!  The dance floor was never empty.  The wedding was catered by Cru Catering and Jenny from Cru did a fabulous job.  Flowers were done by Frederick’s Wedding & Special events, and as always, Lillie’s flowers were exquisite and fresh.  Abby and Greg planned a fantastic wedding.  Cheers to Abby and Greg!

This weekend I traveled to Ohio to attend my cousin Ashley’s wedding. It was a beautiful night at the Darby House in Galloway, Ohio and it was so good to see my cousins! Her colors were black, white and red. I was not the photographer for the night, but I brought my camera along and here are a few images that I took. The last one is of my sister Kristen and my cousin Margie.

Last night at 5:00 Michelle and Tarek were married at Magnolia Plantation in a beautiful Greek Orthodox ceremony. This was my first Greek Orthodox Wedding, I loved seeing all the customs and traditions. The reception was held in the Conservatory. Michelle’s friend Amanda did an amazing job on all the decor at the reception. It was a little warm here in Charleston yesterday, but Michelle and Tarek and all their families were troopers! Cheers to Michelle and Tarek!
