Wavering Place Wedding | Columbia, SC

Wavering Place Wedding | Columbia, SC

I have wanted to photograph a Wavering Place wedding since I moved to the Columbia area in 2015. Susie & Ryan were my first! Wavering Place is so special, it’s like a little walk back in time right outside of the city. I thoroughly enjoyed taking my time photographing the grounds, the beautiful structures, and of course… the details of Ryan & Susie’s day! They wanted a wedding that was truly southern, and I think they pulled it off beautifully. From the cotton to the magnolias, to the shrimp and grits bar! Here are some highlights from their spring Wavering Place wedding.

Brookgreen Gardens Wedding | Pawleys Island, SC

Brookgreen Gardens Wedding | Pawleys Island, SC

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!

Orangeburg Country Club Wedding in Orangeburg, SC

Daniel and Lauren were engaged at Disney World (my favorite place on the planet), and together with the help of their planner Alisha Millwood with Amazing Moment Weddings, these two had a BEAUTIFUL wedding day at the Orangeburg Country Club in Orangeburg, SC. The temperature was perfect, the sun was shining, and Lauren RADIATED joy as she walked up to her groom for their first look. We shot portraits by the spanish moss of them snuggling, dancing, laughing and just being wonderful! Guests came from as far as France to attend this gorgeous event, and it went off without a hitch. I wish you guys the best, and thank you for trusting me to capture your special day!

Robert Mills House and Gardens Wedding in Columbia, SC

Robert Mills House and Gardens Wedding in Columbia, SC

Spring 2017 has been a huge checker off of my wedding bucket list. In March I got to photograph a wedding in Washington DC (it’s here!), tomorrow I’m heading to Eastover for a Wavering Place wedding, and two Saturdays ago I photographed a wedding at Robert Mills House and Gardens! I have been anxiously (and impatiently) awaiting to book a bride who was planning a Robert Mills House and Gardens Wedding in Columbia, SC, so when Laura reached out from meeting me at a past wedding (Hi Ashley!) I was thrilled!!

Meet Kevin and Laura; a love story that shows that good things can come out of physical injuries! Laura is a physical therapist, Kevin was healing after a foot surgery, and here we are today! Laura and Kevin’s Robert Mills wedding day went off without a hitch (largely in part to her planner team, Overflow Events. Can’t say enough about brides who have a planner or at least a day of coordinator to make sure everything is running smoothly!). The weather was perfect! We started our day off at a local hotel, and I got to bring one of my closest Columbia friends along to be my second shooter! Melissa and I haven’t shot together in two YEARS because our schedules never work out, so having her was just so fun (and you’ll see a lot of shots of us in this post too!).

Without further ado, some of my favorite highlights from Kevin & Laura’s Robert Mills wedding!

Robert Mills House and Gardens Wedding Photos Columbia SC_0001.jpg

When your last name is Rose, you HAVE to incorporate rose petals everywhere! Fun behind the scenes fact- Courtney with Overflow let me take home a ton of flowers after the wedding and I got to do things like this at home! It was so awesome because normally I can’t ever mess up flowers like this on the day of!

Is the Robert Mills House not gorgeous?? I’m in love with it. And the decor that Overflow Events set up! The cigar and bourbon bar was for Laura’s dad, and it was a hit! But enough about decor, let’s see Kevin and Laura get married!

I think he’s happy!!

So before this next set comes up, I want to mention why it was a keeper for me. I’m a big believer in God always showing up in His perfect timing, and I’m also a big believer in loved ones who have passed away being able to show us they are watching over us during important moments in our life. This ray of sun shone on Kevin and Laura like a spotlight. I don’t know if they noticed, I don’t know if anyone really did. But it was during Laura’s vows to Kevin, almost as if it were an approval of her promises, and of who he chose to be his partner. It was amazing, and I’m so glad I was able to grab it before it went away.

And to now stop being sappy, let’s get back into the celebration!

South Carolina Wedding Photographer | Mr. and Mrs. Hill

South Carolina Wedding Photographer | Mr. and Mrs. Hill

Under an archway that was built from the columns of his late grandmother’s home, in the presence of probably the largest crowd I’ve ever seen, Ben married his bride Rachael. It was a warm sunny day in March in the small town of Harlem, Georgia just outside of Augusta. Rachael was called “the nicest person you’ll ever meet” by a friend and I couldn’t agree more that she is the sweetest and easiest bride! Ben calmed her pre-wedding jitters, and these guys had a GORGEOUS day full of family, friends and love!

You can see their engagement session HERE!

Rachael was a KNOCKOUT for her Lace House bridal portraits! That shoulder detail on that Justin Alexander gown killed me!

This Washington DC wedding was definitely a career highlight for me! Meet Hunter and Kay. Two lovebirds that live in Charlotte that took a chance on me and hired me to photograph their Washington DC wedding! Their wedding date was actually my BIRTHDAY! I had no expectation of anyone taking a moment to acknowledge it, but when my Uber dropped me off at the girl’s getting ready location, I walked into a Happy Birthday song from all of the bridesmaids and a card that everyone had signed! It made me feel SO loved and appreciated! What a good start to my day! Oh and the breakfast at the house I got to snack on didn’t hurt either!

This is the spot where Hunter and Kay will read letters to each other, and see each other for the first time!!

Cherry Blossom season in DC was interrupted by a snow earlier in the week, but we found a few blooms here and there! It’s still awesome to have a Washington DC wedding, even without them 🙂

Now it’s off to get married! On the Uber ride to the venue, Hunter mentioned that he never had the opportunity to introduce Kay to anyone new as his fiance. He introduced her to the Uber driver as his fiance the hour before he married her!, it was his last chance I swear these guys are so sweet.

Is the Loft at 600 F GORGEOUS or what? Hunter and Kay actually MADE all of these candles out of wine bottles! They were a gift to each guest!
