We had the best time this weekend photographing Sam & Madison’s Old Village Engagement Session!  Sam and Madison grew up here and wanted to incorporate their charming home town into their engagement session!  Our first stop was the Pitt Street Pharmacy which Sam frequented as a kid for their grill cheese!  We made our way down to Pitt Street Bridge and then finished up with a powder paint session at Edwards Park, which truly showcases their playful and fun relationship!!  I am always so happy when couples take the time to add meaning to their engagement sessions!  Congrats guys!!  I’m so happy for you!

Congrats to Elly & Jamie on their Historic Rice Mill wedding this past weekend!  This adorable couple wanted a wedding that was romantic, classic, and elegant.  Elly’s design consisted of pale sage green bridesmaid dresses with light pink florals.  The ceremony space was beautifully decorated with a floral hanging art installation.  The table centerpieces were made from white lanterns, lots of greenery, and gorgeous florals in pales pinks and white.  Allison from Charleston Weddings by Allison did an amazing job bring Elly’s vision to life!  Her stunning bouquet was designed by Charleston Blooms, and I just adored the use of greenery for that soft and romantic feel!  I also love sentimental touches and meaningful details.  Elly wore her grandmother’s garter and a pearl bracelet that was a gift to her grandmother from her grandfather.  Those sweet touches truly make the day special.  The evening was so much fun with the Travis Allison Band and a special highlight was seeing the father of the bride play drums throughout the night!!  This wedding day was such a joy to witness and photograph!!  I’m so happy for these two!! Congrats!!!

Congrats to Jess and  Tom on their engagement in September!  We had been planning their engagement session for months, and they flew in from Manhattan especially for the occasion.  So when you get a forecast of heavy rain and storms at the last minute, what do you do?  You reserve a gorgeous plantation for the afternoon,  enjoy the peace and tranquility of the waterfront property, and pop open some Prosecco! We had to go with something Italian, considering that Tom popped the question just prior to their big trip to Italy last year!  So I met up with this sweet couple for their Lowndes Grove Engagement Session, and I must say that I’m secretly glad we thought it was going to rain.  Of course it did not rain, and we got amazing photographs to celebrate this really special occasion!  Congrats you guys! I am so happy for you!

This Greenville couple, Kelsie and Luke, reached out to me a few weeks ago to plan their Folly Beach fine art engagement photos!!  Folly Beach is a special place for them.  First of all, this sweet Corgi is named “Folly”.  How incredibly precious is she with her rose garland???  So it seemed fitting that Luke would propose to Kelsie on Folly Beach back in April!  Now they will start planning out their wedding for next year!  It was such a great pleasure to meet these guys & I can’t wait to follow their journey!!  Congrats guys!!

Congrats to Kelly & Kevin on their Wingate Plantation wedding this past weekend!! Many of my couples are high school sweethearts, which is always the absolute sweetest thing!!  But Kelly & Kevin’s love goes back even further to middle school!!  How incredibly “meant to be” is this love story?!!!!  Because they grew up in a military family, they moved away from each other in high school.  Years later they were able to reconnect at college!  And their journey brought them to Charleston for a gorgeous wedding at Wingate Plantation on Johns Island.  They wanted a relaxed, fun, and romantic feel to the day, and Wingate did not disappoint.  Their ceremony took place under these majestic live oak trees, which couldn’t have been any more romantic!!  Kelly also chose very romantic touches for her reception design.  She went with a color palette of soft grey and blush combined with lots of greenery.  Samantha Anderson Events did an amazing job creating this soft and romantic feel by draping the live oak trees in flowy fabric and hanging lots of greenery from the chandeliers.  It was so breathtaking!!  Lux & Union provided gorgeous florals with blush accents to bring Kelly’s vision to life!  It was the perfect evening, and it was a joy to watch this couple have such a great time dancing all night to Island Sound Music, who has one of the best playlists I’ve ever heard!!  I’m so happy for this really deserving couple!!
