Megan & Will tied the knot at Senate's End in Columbia, SC on a rainy January evening. This amazing couple braved the rain for their first look and pictures, and oh man did it pay off! These two encapsulate one of the best things about marriage: your plans don't always work out but you have your partner to help you make the best of it, adapt, and remind you that the only part of the plan that really matters is that you're together. Gold, succulents, and so many wonderful personal details certainly warmed up this winter wedding. Megan & Will, thank you for inviting me in and being total badass adventurers every step of the way!
Nicole and Travis said "I do" overlooking the water in Columbia, SC. Stoneridge provided the perfect venue with a gorgeous ceremony spot in front of the river, and an indoor reception space for a haven from the South Carolina humidity. Their entire day was a celebration full of family and friends who knew how to bring the party!
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.
Casey's bridals were an absolute fairytale. We spent a very warm evening exploring the Woodburn house where she would say "I do" a few short weeks later. Woodburn house is a historic house in upstate South Carolina that operates as a museum during the week. The architecture, the preserved details inside, the wild woods outside all were open to us for some truly gorgeous portraits.
