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!!

We celebrated Jamie & Casey’s upcoming wedding by doing their engagement session exactly one year prior to their wedding date!  This time next year, they will by saying “I DO” here in the lovely Holy City!  These stunning Charleston fine art engagement photos were courtesy of a gorgeous sunset!!  I adore the sweetness of these two “teammates”.  We had so much fun strolling downtown looking at gorgeous landscapes and homes while they educated me about the lemon bush or Goldcrest, which has a lemon scent!! Who knew??  Now I’m looking for this neat evergreen all over town!  It’s definitely a must have!! We wrapped up the evening at the Battery with cute shots of Jamie going barefoot in the park!!  Congrats guys!  I’m so happy for you!

Congrats to Sindy & Trey on their Daniel Island Club Wedding this past weekend!!

Almost 10 years ago in August of 2007,  all the freshmen at UNC were starting up classes and meeting classmates and future friends. Sindy and Trey were each out and about one night with their friends…. probably thinking that the last thing they would do was meet their future husband and wife!! Sindy was introduced to “the cute guy in the red polo shirt” that night.  And after hitting it off, Trey and Sindy kept running into each other on campus… By November of that year, they were officially dating!

Fast forward to December of 2015…all of Sindy’s family, including her grandmother from Honduras were in town for Sindy’s brother’s graduation from UNC.  Trey had asked both his and her entire family to hide on campus at UNC at one of their favorite spots for a surprise proposal!!  With her grandmother being in town for her brother’s graduation, Sindy had absolutely no idea what was about to happen!  She was completely surprised!!!

It was then that they started planning their Daniel Island Club Wedding in Charleston, South Carolina!  Sindy wanted a very simple and sophisticated wedding design with lots of colorful details that incorporate her Honduran roots.  Beth with Wildflowers, Inc. did an incredible job making Sindy and Trey’s dream wedding a reality!!  Her floral bouquet’s and centerpieces with accents of mini pineapples and succulents really incorporated a colorful, festive feel to the design!  And Sindy’s amazing gown by Spanish designer, Rosa Clara, defined simple elegance.  I couldn’t be more happy for this sweet couple!!  Congrats guys!!!
