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!

Lacey & AJ | A Hilton Head Elopement

A Hilton Head Elopement

Lacey + AJ I’ve been loving elopements this year, and Lacey and AJ’s sweet elopement had me smiling the whole afternoon! They flew in from out of town with their adorable son, AJ’s brother, and his wife. AJ’s sister-in-law officiated the ceremony. I loved how even though it was just the six of us, she was still so nervous, wanting to do a perfect job for the two of them. It was a beautiful ceremony. My favorite part of the whole day was how right after the kiss, Lacey burst into happy tears, saying the day was just how she imagined it. Congratulations, Lacey and AJ!
