Erin & Mitchell | William Aiken House

A William Aiken House Wedding

Erin & Mitchell

I absolutely love the William Aiken House. It’s in the heart of downtown Charleston, in the middle of amazing restaurants, classy bars and boutique shopping. The house itself is so elegant, with the checkerboard-floored porches, the yellow paint, and the ceremony site with a pond. Erin and Mitchell were the perfect couple to get married here, as their classiness matched the William Aiken House perfectly!

I loved Erin’s blush colored dress, and Mitchell’s bowtie and tuxedo. The two of them made for such a laid-back couple, and because of that, everything ran so smoothly! They couldn’t keep the smiles off their faces all day. One of the details they were most excited about were the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” balloons they had for their sendoff! After a night full of dancing with their INCREDIBLE band, The Atlanta Pleasure Band, they had their guests send them off straight onto King Street where their rickshaw awaited them with their balloons!

Caitlin & Hunter | A Downtown Charleston Wedding

Caitlin & Hunter

A Downtown wedding at the Visitor’s Center

Oh Caitlin and Hunter. I know that I gush over every single one of my couples, but I just have the best couples in the world! I was fortunate enough to work with Hunter and Caitlin three times over the course of their engagement. I met them for their engagement session, and I remember the first thing I thought was, wow they are both really tall. I’m 5’2, so really anyone is tall compared to me, but still. They were dressed to the nine’s, and I had SO much fun with them. If you remember from their engagement session, they took off their shoes and walked right into the marsh when I said I thought it might be cool. AND IT WAS. I loved their adventurous and fun spirits from the get-go. Closer to their wedding, I was able to meet up with Caitlin and her adorable momma for her bridal session. I love when I get to meet my bride’s momma’s before the wedding day. Caitlin’s mom was the sweetest, and helped me carry around Caitlin’s dress (it had POURED that morning, but once again, adventurous Caitlin said it was no big deal!) Once again, I had so much fun being with the two of them.

Caitlin and her girls got ready at the Francis Marion, with this absolutely stunning view of the city from her bridal suite. I hadn’t met her dad before the wedding day, but I loved the moment of her walking up behind him to do her “first look with daddy,” as she wrote in her timeline :) He had the biggest, most adorable smile on his face when he saw his baby girl in her beaded dress. And of course that’s always the moment when I get all teary-eyed and have to just focus on taking pictures so I don’t start weeping. And Caitlin’s dad wasn’t the only one to have a huge smile on his face when he saw her. As you’ll see in the post, Hunter had a huge grin on his face too when he saw Caitlin walking down the aisle.

Caitlin and Hunter, you two brought so much joy and fun to your wedding day. Seriously, there was zero stress, and only big smiles all day long. It was an absolute joy to get to know you two and work with you. Every time I look at any of the photos from their engagement session, bridal session, and their wedding, it brings a smile to my face.
