Denise + Adam | Historic Rice Mill Wedding | Charleston, SC

I am so excited to be sharing some sweet moments from my first 2015 wedding! Denise and Adam got married at the Historic Rice Mill in Charleston, SC. on a gorgeous and bright spring day! Adam gets major bonus points for the wedding day gift he picked out for his bride. A gorgeous bracelet from Tiffany and Co. #bestfinaceever. One of my absolute favorite moments from their wedding day was their first look at White Point Gardens. They got a moment to see each other, love on one another and just bask in the few last few moments before becoming husband and wife. I don't think I've ever seen a bride with a smile as bright as Denise when she saw Adam. The incredible ladies from Sweetgrass Social worked with Denise and Adam to perfectly plan and coordinate their wedding day. If you're still looking for a wedding planner for your big day, I recommend these ladies highly! I was also in love with the florals done by Branch Studio and Design. They were so romantic and bright! Congratulations to the sweetest couple. So happy for you both!

Christy & Jamie {High Cotton Wedding | Charleston SC}

Christy and Jamie were married in the private courtyard of High Cotton Restaurant in downtown Charleston, with their reception to follow in the French Quarter Room. Before I delve into the details of their sweet, intimate wedding, can I first say that I loved working with these guys?! From the moment I met them, I could tell they were star-struck in love. We roamed around downtown, and I'm not sure who had more fun. I mean, what photographer doesn't love it when the bride says, "Can we run out and take a photo in the middle of the road?" Christy was very involved in planning the details of this gorgeous wedding, and with the help of her mother and aunt, they made the whole day a success. Christy's flowers had a wildflower inspiration feel with a pop of bright pink, and both Christy and Jamie's children carried classic Charleston sweetgrass flowers, wrapped in burlap. How amazing is their cake? Can you believe it was made by one of Christy's friends? I know, my jaw dropped as well when I learned that fact. Have fun swooning over these photos!

Thank you to Christy and Jamie for allowing me to participate in the beauty of your big day! All the best to the both of you as you begin your lives together in marriage!
