The Summer Charleston Wedding
I loved every part of this wedding. The couple were good friends of mine and we all had such a good time. It took place in the beautiful Alhambra Hall in South Carolina. It was by the coast and their Summer Charleston wedding had beautiful weather. There was a gigantic wedding party which made for a ton of fun and laughter with so many friends around. It was an intimate wedding that was both sunny and beautiful. When the relationship with my couples is good I have no doubt that the whole day will go well since we already get along. Also the dress was incredible and from Melissa Sweet, part of David’s Bridal.
The Coastal Couple
These were some of my favorite portraits from the whole summer. It started with them surprising me with baby hands because they wanted funny portraits. After laughing for 5 minutes we started to take advantage of the evening light. I love a good sense of humor and it helps to keep things light when shooting the portraits. The couple should be as comfortable as possible and it was easy for them to be just that. Then we explored the whole grounds at Alhambra Hall and took some great portraits. I have more of my favorites from other couples here.
The evening was the best part. After the portraits there was dancing for hours. The Star Wars-inspired cake topper was hilarious and by far my favorite I’ve ever seen. The best is when the bride and groom themselves lead the charge on the dance floor and Adam and Lauryn did not shy away at all. Then, once they were there, the rest of the reception joined in. Finally, after some funny toasts and incredible food we took advantage of the nighttime light and took just a few more portraits before they left for their honeymoon.
