I was absolutely honored to have the opportunity to photograph this Swan House wedding inspiration shoot!  Atlanta is my home town and sadly I never got the chance to photograph at the Swan House before our big move to Charleston!  So a long time dream was realized last month when I got the opportunity to photograph a styled shoot planned and designed by Heather Benge Events, named one of the top 50 wedding planners in the world!  Flowers are always my obsession and Lisa with Thorne and Thistle designed some of the most amazing florals I’ve ever photographed!!  Also amazing were the cakes provided by A Joy Cakes, who created one of the most stunning wedding cakes I’ve ever seen!!  This was an amazing team and one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever photographed! Enjoy this wedding inspiration!

Congrats to Meredith & Jesse on their engagement this past spring down at Folly Beach!  We’ve been looking forward to their Gadsden House engagement pics for such a long time!  These guys have a really tight schedule, so making sure that we had a stunning indoor space for pictures was an absolute must! After meeting them and their adorable chocolate lab, Nala, it’s going to be so hard to wait until summertime for their wedding day!  It was also wonderful to catch up with Allison from Charleston Weddings by Allison today too!  She did a great job keeping us on track, and I’m so excited to see what gorgeousness she dreams up for the wedding day!  I couldn’t be happier for these fun loving sweethearts!

Katie’s bridal shower was the absolute sweetest!!!  Katie’s dear friends, Andrea & Sierra, gathered Katie’s closest friends for a flower crown bridal shower!  Andrea opened her lovely home where we had the most amazing view of the water while we enjoyed brunch on the back deck.  We had the best time with Molly from Fetes de Fleurs who guided us through the entire process of making these adorable crowns!  We enjoyed making our own unique drinks from the Prosecco bar and devoured chicken with Belgium waffles provided by Sweet Belgium!  And we finished off the afternoon with this fun cake by So Sweet!  Andrea went with greenery for the table and a lovely floral garland for the wicker chair centerpiece.  These beauties came from Charleston Flower Market.  It couldn’t have been a more perfect afternoon with friends that I love in the prettiest setting!!

I’ve been so excited for weeks about taking some Charleston Engagement Photos with Chris and Katie, one of my most favorite couples ever! And Ella, their Boston/Frenchie pup, has completely stolen my heart.  She is absolutely the SWEETEST puppy ever in the history of puppies!  To add to the sweetness of these lovely engagement photos are these gorgeous flower crowns!   Part two of this series will be Katie’s bridal shower where she and her girlfriends learned how to make flower crowns from our expert, Molly from Fetes de Fluers Charleston. I love these guys so much and couldn’t be happier for you!! Congrats!

Congrats to Trent & Katie on their Founders Hall Wedding! Katie and Trent met at UNCW their freshman year, but their love story started in the summer of 2009 when a little encouragement from the bride’s sister, Abi, finally got Trent to ask for Katie’s number.  Starting on the first day he called her, they have talked every day since!  Four years ago, they made Charleston their home and have loved it so much that they wanted all their family and friends to enjoy their home town for their wedding weekend!  Katie wanted a rustic wedding with lots of wood, browns, and greenery.  Founders Hall has that woodsy rustic feel that suited Katie and Trent’s vision so perfect.  The park here at Charlestown Landing is absolutely a breathtaking setting as well.  The bridesmaid dresses were a mix of grey, taupe, and black, which went so well with the lush greenery styled to perfection by Purple Magnolia.  And of course Erika with Beautiful Bride Events did a stunning job designing and  planning Katie and Trent’s dream wedding!
