I first met Olivia & Hudson at a Panera bread because meeting over food is my favorite…. because food is my favorite. In addition to hearing about their plans for their Brookgreen Gardens wedding in Pawleys Island, SC, lots of unrelated wedding things occurred (Discussions of macaroni and cheese, Hudson talked me into getting the Chase Sapphire card). One thing I knew when I left that dinner was that I really hoped they booked me because we just connected so easily and that’s always a dream! Fast forward, (they did obviously!) to their engagement session at Brookgreen Gardens. This place was BEAUTIFUL and we got to walk around the venue and talk about wedding day plans. I could not wait for their wedding to be here!

Brookgreen Gardens is a five minute drive to the beach!

Now that the wedding day has come and gone, and Olivia and I have spent months sending each other ridiculous wedding images involving Star Wars and dinosaurs, it’s time for the world to see a little snippet of their beautiful day! Here are some of my favorites from Hudson & Olivia’s Brookgreen Gardens wedding. Shoutout to Hayley Paige for this custom dress and to Olivia for going the route of a PINK VEIL!

Olivia’s extra level is 100. She is aware and proud. These rings have some beautiful meaning too!

I always tell my clients I’m taking test shots and they don’t have to smile, and both of these guys do this face during that time. They are meant to be.
