A Lowndes Grove Wedding

Kierstin + James

Was this day hot or is it just this gorgeous couple?! Well, maybe it was a little bit of both. I walked in to the whole wedding party getting preventative IV’s (smartest idea ever!) and we spent the rest of the afternoon running from the 103 degree day outside to the cool AC inside the house. We were all thankful for the ocean breeze!

Thankfully, Kierstin and James are the sweetest couple ever, and I loved watching them get married underneath the shade of the oak trees at Lowndes Grove. They’re both such easy people to be around, and I loved getting to know little parts of their relationship. Kier told me that when James proposed to her (in his lovely Irish accent during intermission of a play) she started crying. He looked up at her and said, “Why are you crying?? It isn’t going to be THAT bad.” Love these two 

Kier and James, thank you so much for inviting me to celebrate your wedding with you!

A Thomas Bennett House Wedding

Molly + Chris

Molly and Chris. I don’t even know where to begin with these two! Their wedding day at The Governor Thomas Bennett House was absolute perfection. And that wasn’t even because of the gorgeous day, everything being on time, the incredible decor…it was because of the two of them! Their joy was breathtaking. Molly was literally excited about every little piece of the day, soaking in every moment. Chris was so warm and inviting, making sure that everyone was having an amazing time. You could just feel the joy and love emanating from them, and it was a beautiful thing to see.

Molly and Chris told me that they met at work a few years ago. Their friends tried to set them up, but they both played it cool for awhile. One day, they finally spent a little bit of time talking to each other. After that, both smitten, they went out on dates for 14 consecutive nights! I wonder how many of their coworker friends said, “I told you so!” Chris proposed at Boone Hall Plantation. He had arranged it so Molly thought she was going to a family friend’s birthday party. That way, her whole family was there! She was so surprised when she walked down the avenue of oaks to see Chris there. It was so sweet that they chose Boone Hall for their engagement photos too!

I’m so happy for the chance to have met Molly and Chris and to have been part of such a lovely day. Thank you for being my dream couple…invested so much more in your marriage and what’s to come than in just your wedding day. Whenever that happens, you can bet the wedding day is going to be the best!!
