Legare Waring House Wedding Portraits Kelly and Chris’s wedding highlights a fusion of their style. Kelly is drawn to soft pastels and whimsical design while Chris likes rustic elements. With this inspiration, Christina of Cibi Events created a unique design that included family style wooden tables, chandeliers, an eclectic spread of floral arrangements, and Edison bulbs. Tabletop centerpieces featured a mix of textures utilizing wooden boxes and mercury glass. Kelly’s bouquet and some elements of the centerpieces incorporate one of my favorite flowers – Cafe au Lait Dahlias. Congratulations to Kelly and Chris!

A wedding I photographed for Riverland Studios was featured on the homepage of Style Me Pretty! This summer rustic soiree at the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens featured a soft color palette of pinks, peach, and nudes. Vintage teacups and vases adorned tables. The couple’s ceremony included a white draped arbor with hanging flowers. Take a peek at SMP’s feature and gallery to see more.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding Bride and Groom Portrait

Ava and Travis met late one night in Las Vegas. He was making his rounds with trauma patients and overheard Ava, a cardiac unit RN, singing Jason Mraz.  She claims it was “love at second sight.” Their romance has included introducing Ava to biking, camping, and hiking as well as a move to Washington and the addition their second daughter, Serena.

For their wedding, Ava envisioned a chic vintage styled day with Magnolia Plantation as the backdrop. Her sequined halter Jenny Packham gown is reminiscent of 1920s elegance that made Ava look simply regal. The guys were dapper in their wool vests and Travis topped off his look with a stylish hat. Fall colors of plum and wine accented tabletops and attire. The vintage doilies, linens and lanterns were brought from the Philippines by Ava’s mother. After their ceremony under the oaks, the couple performed a well choreographed first dance number that started slow before they broke out into a routine. That definitely got the party started on the dance floor, which later had appearances by pirates and lifting Ava and Travis in the air. Congratulations Ava and Travis!

Elizabeth & Jeremy {Beach House Hilton Head Resort Wedding}11.24.14

Beach House Hilton Head Resort Wedding Portraits

Elizabeth and Jeremy had a romantic comedy-esque first meeting. Liz thought she was going out for a quiet night of Mexican cuisine followed by viewing a Christmas lights show. But having some margaritas put her in a dancing mood. Her friends and she walk into a bar where she spots a dancing fiend singing into a beer bottle surrounded by ladies. Somehow they find themselves dancing with each other most of the night. That first night of dance floor bliss led to a brief long distance relationship (11 months in Liz packed her bags for Ohio) and over four years later they sealed the deal on the beach at Hilton Head Island.

This romantic beach affair was designed with light ethereal colors of blush and champagne accented with navy blue. As guests arrived on the beach, they were greeted with a musician playing acoustic guitar and were served a fruity punch to sip on during the ceremony. After exchanging vows, Liz and Jeremy tied a fisherman’s knot for their unity ritual. The reception took place in a banquet room at The Beach House where guests could mingle indoors or on the patio. The couple of course hit the dance floor before joining in the rest of the festivities. Congratulations Liz and Jeremy!

Darina & PJ {Hampton Park and Downtown Charleston Engagement}11.18.14

Hampton Park Engagement Portrait

I’m fortunate to have worked with numerous great couples in my (almost) 7 years of being a professional photographer. And I’m a firm believer that photographers attract clients with similar traits as themselves. So, when Darina and her mother stopped by my office for our initial consult, I had no doubt this was a couple in which I was meant to document their wedding. We chatted for almost 2 hours and in that time I quickly realized that we have a similar sense of humor and that Darina 100% embraced my approach and style. After such a great meeting, PJ had a lot to live up to. But when I met them downtown for their engagement session he was just as adventurous and funny as Darina. Not to mention these two have a playful sports rivalry that we couldn’t help but include. Congratulations Darina and PJ!
