LeeAnn + Justin | Confederate Home and College Wedding

LeeAnn + Justin | Confederate Home and College Wedding

LeeAnn did such a beautiful job planning her wedding. LeeAnn and Justin got married under a gorgeous big Oak Tree at The Confederate Home and College in Charleston, SC. The Confederate Home and College, a cherished institution in Charleston, was built circa 1800. Their wedding day was was just beaming with romance. I love that they chose to hang twinkling lights from the tree. It added such a dynamic element to their photos and just had me swooning!

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!

Jade & Jamie {Brays Island Wedding}

If you are thinking about having an outdoor Ceremony Brays Island Plantation is the place to do it! This venue took my breath away. The beautiful oak trees, spanish moss and golden sunlight over the water seriously make up the most beautiful backdrop for this wedding. Jade and Jamie are two of the most genuine and kind people. Their wedding day was just gorgeous! Jade wore her grandmothers wedding gown and she couldn't have been more beautiful. Jerri with Ooh! Events did a wonderful job coordinating this fabulous wedding. Check out their awesome gift that they left at each guests place setting (glass lace coasters!). From beginning to end I enjoyed every second I spent shooting this wedding. Congratulations Jade and Jamie!

I've been looking forward to Christina and Chad's wedding since the moment we sat down over coffee last year. They has a very sweet & intimate wedding at The Kiawah River Plantation on John's Island. Christina did a lot of the decorations herself, including the fun mason jar & burlap centerpieces. Im so happy that I got to be a part of this sweet couples wedding day and I hope nothing but wonderfully blessed years for the you two! Congrations Mr. & Mrs. Blevins!
