A Downtown Charleston Elopement

Caitlyn + Dylan


Caitlyn and Dylan had the sweetest ceremony at White Point Gardens in downtown Charleston. I know I say it so often, but I just LOVE elopements! Every time I photograph one, I’m struck by how personal, intimate, and intentional the ceremonies are. Listening to their vows put the biggest smile on my face! Dylan told Caitlyn, “When we stand in front of each other, like we are now, the rest of the world always disappears.” You could tell that they only had eyes for each other as they read their vows. The two of them are adventurers at heart, and they told me of their cross country travels, living in states all over the country, and getting married after just two months of being engaged! If you’ve followed my blog for awhile, you know how I feel about adventuring with the people you love. I talk about it a lot, and I feel so fortunate to get to meet so many couples who feel the same way! Caitlyn and Dylan, I think you’re entering into the greatest adventure of all! Cheers to many amazing years to come!

Thank you to the vendors who made this day possible!

The Ceremony – A 2018 Review

Wedding Ceremonies

A 2018 Review

Today in my 2018 review I have the ceremonies! The photographs below were taken in Charleston, Hilton Head, Kiawah Island, Atlantic City, and the Dominican Republic. They were at historic homes, backyards, plantations, beaches, hotels, oceanfront, and downtown. They included big weddings, intimate weddings, and elopements. One thing I love about the ceremonies I get to attend is how different they all are. I love seeing the personal touches each couple adds to their ceremony. The vows they write or choose, what elements they include, and when they get emotional. It always varies, and I try to take as much as I can from each ceremony. I always remind my couples after their wedding day that love is a choice. They chose each other on their wedding day, and they will make the conscious choice to choose each other every day following. I love ceremonies because they truly are about the marriage, not about the wedding. Below are photographs of all the beautiful ceremonies that I had the privilege to photograph in 2018!
