Glow sticks, handmade bouquets by the bride and bridesmaids, boho updos, and so many other wonderful details made this one of my favorite weddings ever.
In Columbia, South Carolina during Winter or Spring, you can expect the weather to act a little unexpectedly. Nicole's bridals, in her strapless dress, were the day before a snow! It may be hard to believe that Columbia got snow, and it may not look like it here, but snow it did! Nicole rocked these bridals, channeling some real top model vibes.
Rebecca's bridal session was the perfect fall day. The leaves had changed to gorgeous golds and fiery reds, but in true South Carolina fashion it was warm enough to be out in a sleeveless gown. Nature perfectly complimented the maroon and gold of Rebecca & Cameron's wedding later in the year, like everything around her was echoing their love.
Every person in the bridal party gave a speech at the reception, and when it was the bride and groom's turn to give thank-you speeches, they were met with bursting responses mid-speech of "We love you!" from several guests. Speaking of their wonderful friends, this group knew how to party! It didn't matter how hot it was, it didn't matter how long they had been there, these guests filled the dance floor all night with glow sticks and so much joy.
Maggie has been a close friend since my first semester of college. To be able to capture the moments of this joyful season has been a wonderful experience. Her strong personality is so fun, you can't help but laugh with her all the time. Now she is married! Now she & Justin get to make each other laugh every day. I'm so thankful to walk with her in this journey & very honored that she asked me to create these portraits.
