Paige and Martin’s wedding was a fun-loving celebration. The couple decided to marry in the historic Pawleys Island Chapel, which literally hovers above the marsh. This quaint chapel provides an up close waterside view of the tidal creek, which makes it a unique ceremony location in the Lowcountry. Friends and family gathered in this petite sanctuary to witness Paige and Martin’s commitment to love and life with one another. Afterwards everyone journeyed to the front lawn of the Kaminski House to celebrate. Pampered Palate served up delicious Southern cuisine featuring short rib and shrimp & grits. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, a variety of wedding pies offered a tasty palate cleanser for dessert. The pies were so popular that slices started mysteriously disappearing; so, the couple were quick to cut their favorite pie together and share a slice. After dining, Paige and Martin enjoyed the rest of the evening on the dance floor or chatting with loved ones with a great waterside view. Their Kaminski House wedding was a perfect day with warm Carolina weather and a party that continued after the reception. Congratulations Paige and Martin!

Becca & Chris {Pavilion at Pepper Plantation Wedding}05.19.15

BeccaChris_PepperPlantation_22 This Charleston couple met in a N. Charleston dive bar, the Mill, on 11/11/11 and have been inseparable ever since. Becca is creative, stylish and loves to laugh while Chris is lively and a lovable goof. Together the pair love exploring the eclectic eats of Charleston and admit they may be slightly obsessed with sushi. When not about town, they enjoy going home to their petite pup, Khaleesi, who also joined the couple on their wedding day.  For their early spring wedding at the Pavilion at Pepper Plantation, Becca envisioned a rustic glam theme. Pepper Plantation is tucked away on the outskirts of Charleston and offers the perfect woodsy getaway for weddings. This natural backdrop received a classic chic makeover thanks to Wildflowers, INC. who not only handled floral design but also event coordination. They created a floral collar for Khaleesi along with beautiful bouquets and centerpieces that featured ranunculus, soft peach roses and lamb’s ear. These vibrant florals paired well with champagne sequins table linens and mercury and gold votives. DeClare Cakes crafted a speciality Crown Royal groom’s cake and create a stunning 3-tiered naked wedding cake. As their celebration came to a close, Becca and Chris darted through a sparkler departure to a black cab getaway. Congratulations Becca and Chris!

Alex & Eric {Hampton Park Wedding}05.18.15

The last wedding I photographed in February was an intimate affair with only the couple and their families. Alex and Eric wanted a small but elegant destination wedding in Charleston. Like usual, the weather in the Lowcountry can be unpredictable. Right as we prepared for the First Look, the rain started pouring. I suggested my alma mater, College of Charleston, so that we could not only capture portraits with classic historic structures the Holy City is known for but to also stay dry. Randolph Hall and the Cistern area offered a perfect backdrop and refuge during the storm. By the time we wrapped up portraits, the rain had let up enough for us to stick to the original plan of a Hampton Park wedding. Though the weather wasn’t as cooperative as anyone would have liked, Alex and Eric remained flexible and adapted to the circumstances. The bride was prepared for chilly weather with a bridal coat. This accessory was great cause not only did it help keep her warm, but it also created a different fashionable look for some of their portraits. And by deciding on Hampton Park as the venue, they had a covered option for the ceremony and were able to wed in the gazebo.

Hampton Park is one of my favorite city parks, especially for weddings. It’s away from the touristy part of town and is frequented by mostly locals only. Its vast acreage offers such eclectic natural backdrops as mossy crape myrtles, large oak trees, and colorful planted florals. Even on an overcast day, these natural elements contribute to the beauty of a photo. Congratulations Alex and Eric!

Erika & Jack {William Aiken House Wedding}05.14.15

Imagine being abroad in beautiful Barcelona, Spain. Two travelers cross paths in a hotel business center and instantly have a connection. He returns home to NYC. She detours to visit him on her way back to Charlotte and a love story begins. Months later she packs up, bids the South farewell for the Big Apple, and the two have been inseparable ever since. No, that is not the summary of an award winning romantic comedy. It’s Erika and Jack’s amazing love story.

Their whirlwind romance continued with a stunning winter wedding at The William Aiken House. The couple were inspired by their love of travel and incorporated elements of globe trotting throughout the decor. These unique features included vintage luggage tags as escort cards, a guest book globe, and having a destination wedding in Charleston. Along with reflecting the couple’s sense of adventure, Erika wanted a soft, romantic atmosphere. Blush, champagne and ivory offered an enchanting color palette from the drapery to the all rose bouquets. This whimsical wanderlust soiree came together from the amazing team of Southern Chic Weddings and lovely floral design by Wildflowers, INC.

After a courtyard ceremony in the heart of Downtown Charleston, guests dined on cuisine creations from William Aiken House’s in-house caterer, FISH. The evening continued with dancing, photo booth shenanigans, and a cigar bar. Before bidding guests farewell, Erika and Jack made sure everyone had a tasty late night snack provided by Roti Rolls food truck. The newlyweds were sent on their way with a sparkler exit and a vintage Bentley. Congratulations Erika and Jack!

Caroline & Luke {Middleton Place Wedding}04.26.15

posted in Middleton Place wedding, Photography, southern weddings, wedding photography

CarolineLuke_MiddletonPlace_PriscillaThomasPhotography_251

What better way to start off the New Year than with a celebration of love with an intimate wedding at Middleton Place!  Caroline and Luke have a “why wait?” philosophy and decided to embrace a quasi elopement in Charleston, SC.  Two friends and Caroline’s daughter were present for the couple’s nuptials beneath an oak tree and even stuck around for some portrait fun.

I loved Caroline’s self-description in one of her responses to my Getting to Know You questionnaire: “I never meet a stranger and I love people. I live by the saying, ‘rules are only suggestions!’ and Luke is just a nice guy who landed him a color-outside-of-the-lines kind of girl.”  That let me know they were up for about anything, which is good because I’m not shy about asking couples to push some boundaries for the sake of creating unique portraits. One of the reasons I enjoy photographing elopements and smaller weddings is because we usually have ample time for portraits. The gift of those extra minutes allows for more exploration and play with photos, which can lead to some stunning photos.  Congratulations to Caroline and Luke!
