A Lowndes Grove Wedding | Charleston, South Carolina

 

Lauren + Austin

I know what you’re thinking. “Oh, those models from this styled shoot are really stunning.” But no. This here is a real couple who just got married at Lowndes Grove. Somehow were worried they were going to look awkward in photos. Lauren and Austin are beautiful people! But more than that, they are wonderful people. I walked in to Lowndes Grove and Lauren leapt up with a huge smile on her face and gave me the biggest hug. Austin had a huge smile on his face as he walked down the aisle, which quickly dissolved into tears when he saw Lauren.

Lauren laughed as she told me that she was the little girl who dreamed about her wedding day, and as she and Austin stood on the dock, she told him that he was worth the wait. Austin had said that he was most excited about seeing Lauren walk down the aisle, and they both cried as Lauren and her dad walked down the aisle. I’m pretty sure they cried at least four more times during the rest of the night, during dances, toasts, and simply being around all their favorite people.

I loved hearing both of their younger siblings tell them how much they looked up to both of them while growing up, and how they still see both Lauren and Austin as role models because of the kind, warm, loving people they are. It was so easy to see how loved they both are! Congrats on a beautiful day, and I’m so honored that you chose me to be a part of it!

Caroline + John

Caroline and John’s wedding at the Creek Club at I’on was yet another reminder (as if I needed one!) of how INCREDIBLY blessed I am by the amazing couples that book me to photograph their wedding. I woke up on Sunday morning to gray skies, thunder, lightning, and the threat of hail. When I arrived to The Dewberry, Caroline was getting her makeup done and was nothing but smiles. She and her bridesmaids were giddy with excitement, and could care less about the rainy day. They popped champagne, danced around to a great playlist, and couldn’t keep the smiles off their faces.

Despite the ground being soaked through, Caroline and John still chose to do their first look out on the dock when the rain subsided for a bit. Their ceremony was moved from the lawn to the porch, but that didn’t phase the two of them one bit. Honestly, the rain hitting the metal roof at Creek Club at I’On during the ceremony was pretty incredible. I heard a few of the guests talking later in the night about how it was the most romantic ceremony they’d ever been to! Caroline and John, you are once again proof that a wedding day is about so much more than everything going according to plan. It’s about gathering in one place with your closest family and friends. It’s about celebrating love. It’s about committing your life to your best friend, today and forever. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such an incredible day. You two deserve nothing but the best!

Don’t worry, it had stopped raining by this point! Caroline wasn’t getting drenched with rain :) :)

I love that they included Moose in their engagement photos AND in their wedding photos! What a sweet pup!

He looks so sad here…

Aaaaaaand then someone mentions the word “TREAT.”
