Last May I was elated to photograph a multi-cultural wedding at Harborside East that included two ceremonies – a Hindu ceremony and a Unitarian ceremony. The Hindu ceremony was filled with vibrance and fun while the Unitarian ceremony was intimate and sweet. This fusion of traditions and rituals was one of the most unique weddings I’ve been a part of, but what made it amazing was the couple and their families. Kim and Manish wanted an elegant wedding but with a rock star edge. Both love music and were inspired by the idea of a concert. Eclectic music selections and an encore dance party with glow sticks concluded a magical night.

At the end of 2014 their wedding was published in the Winter issue of The Knot The Carolinas magazine. The publication is on stands until spring so go snag a copy while you can!

Edree & Mike {White Point Gardens Wedding}02.23.15

This intimate fall wedding features a blush and neutrals color palette with glamourous touches of sequins and feathers reminiscent of the 1920s. The gents donned traditional black tuxedos, including Edree and Mike’s son – Tyler. The couple were wed in front of close friends and family in the gazebo at White Point Gardens. Guests used SCOOP to taxi to Magnolias restaurant for an elegant seated dinner.

The couple met in November 2007 at a flag football game. Shortly after their 5 year anniversary, they learned Tyler would be coming along to make them a family. A few months later Edree and Mike were in Charleston visiting relatives. Mike planned a special day to pamper Edree with some clothes shopping and an elegant night out. They dined at Hank’s Seafood restaurant. Edree details Mike’s proposal, “We were halfway through dinner, and Mike starts asking me how I am feeling, and if I am excited about the stuff going on in our life, and our baby on the way, and I say of course and go on and on. He then starts to stand up, pulls the ring out and says, “Are you going to be excited about this?” and puts the ring on the table! And starts to walk around the table towards me. While he is walking towards me, I start shrieking and shaking and excitedly laughing. I start asking a whole bunch of excited questions really fast like ‘Oh my god!!!…. Is this for real?!!!’ Mike then gets down on one knee and, says ‘Edree I love you very much, will you marry me?!’ Of course I said yes and was shaking and hug and kissed him!” Those in the restaurant started clapping and the waiter brought them complimentary champagne toast and dessert. With November being a significant month for the couple already, they decided to make it their wedding month as well and wanted to exchange vows in the beautiful city they got engaged. Congratulations to Edree & Mike and their family!

Brandi & Adam had a light and ethereal spring destination wedding in Charleston. Their choice for neutral hues of taupe, gold, and blush created a soft yet inviting soiree. The heart of historic Charleston is featured with portraits on cobblestone paths, Washington Square and facades of eclectic architecture. Their ceremony and festivities took place at McCrady’s restaurant. It is no surprise that such a beautiful wedding is shared on Carats & Cake.

Meredith and Drew met through their volunteer work at Imerman Angels – a Chicago based charity that connects cancer survivors with cancer fighters all over the world. It was founded by Drew’s cousin, a two time cancer survivor who served as the couple’s officiant. Meredith had thyroid cancer when she was 23. When she relocated to Chicago and heard about this charity, she immediately got involved. Eventually both Meredith and Drew were on the charity board together and after board meetings, the group would go out for drinks. The pair were always the last two standing. One thing led to another and about 8 months after they first met, they started dating.

One night, after the pair had a nice seafood dinner and cozied up on the couch for a movie, Meredith mentioned how it was a perfect Friday and she was happy to be home with relaxing with him. Drew left the room, came back, and proposed with his grandmother’s engagement ring. Meredith was in a state of disbelief. She said, “Even after I opened the box I had no idea what was going on. Drew told me that he wanted to spend every Friday night with me and asked me to marry him.” Originally Drew had no intentions of proposing that night but said that he felt it was the perfect moment to do so.

The couple wanted their wedding to be fun and relaxed. They decided on a backyard BBQ theme that included a pig roast, cornhole, and oyster roast. They chose some of their favorite colors for the wedding – orange, navy blue, and teal. A perfect selection fall. Meredith and Drew also included their favorite canine in the festivities – their adorable dog Artie. After exchanging vows waterside on the back lawn of Alhambra Hall, the couple joined loved ones for a classic bbq spread by Crazy Dutchman Catering. Following dinner, DJ Beats Bailey’s playlist got everyone on the dance floor to close out the last hours of the celebration.
