The day that Heather contacted me about being her wedding photographer I smiled extra big because I knew she had found her partner in life. This beautiful, talented, smart & loving woman is my niece, so watching her walk down the aisle made for some pretty watery eyes. I am SO happy for you both Heather & Ian! You two compliment each other so well and I can see you have a wonderful future ahead of you!!
In all my years of shooting weddings, I have not had the opportunity to be at a reception at One Greenville. Well, that is probably due to the fact that it is just one of many new gorgeous buildings going up in our ever growing downtown. The views were incredible!!! Ok, so back to the part before the ceremony….

While we were taking bridesmaids photos, Heather requested one shot and that was one from a scene in her favorite movie…”Bridesmaids”. So we walked out to the middle of the street and within a couple of seconds a man driving a blue motorcycle pulled up and put his hand out. We couldn’t see his face because of his helmet. But in his hand was a blue rose. What makes this a story to remember is that Heather had forgotten her “something blue” and the rose just completed her something old, something new, something borrowed and now something blue. I mean…what are the chances?!

Soon it was time for their ceremony and Larkin Courtyard was a perfect setting for saying their “I Do’s”. One of the bridesmaids had a dress malfunction and their amazing officiant who also happens to be one of my previous grooms, came to the rescue with needle and thread. All was fixed and then time to walk down the aisle. Could this day have any more fun stories? The ceremony was absolutely beautiful!!
The evening was wrapped up at the One building with dancing, great food, incredible cakes and even the Clemson Tiger!!

Congratulations Heather & Ian!! I am SO happy for you both. Thank you so much to Katie for all your hard work and creativity!
Now…sit back and enjoy their slideshow.

The day before Alex & Mike’s big day, Katie (my awesome second shooter) & I drove to Isle of Palms to check into the hotel, grab a nice dinner and just hang out and catch up. I walked into the hotel and I was greeted with a big smile and a woman saying “you must be the photographer…welcome”. I thought..wow, now that was impressive. I wasn’t even carrying a camera. LOL. The next morning we talked over the itinerary of the day and headed to Wild Dunes where the wedding party was getting ready. BUT not before our usual “day of wedding” selfie. 😀

The weather was absolutely perfect! A few white puffy clouds, deep blue sky and fabulous temperatures for a wedding. Alex was so relaxed and excited and was surrounded by family & friends. When it was time to head to the church, we all piled in the limo bus and made the trek to Charleston to the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist church. Absolutely stunning cathedral!! After the ceremony and family photos, we had some time to take pictures in front of the church which were awesome! I could have spent an hour there with Alex & Mike because the light was amazing…they were just beaming with big smiles and Alex’s veil was catching the breeze which was something like right out of a movie!! It was then time to head off to the reception at the Citadel Beach House. When we arrived, guests were out back enjoying the nice weather, a variety of great finger foods, drinks, laughs, and lawn games. The view of the ocean was a gorgeous backdrop to this already perfect setting.

Ok, can we talk about the first dance…it was AWESOME!! Alex & Mike, it was so great watching you two and I know everyone else enjoyed as well.
Everything was incredible. Congratulations you two! It was an honor to be your photographer. I wish you a lifetime of happiness. A big thank you to my second shooter Katie. Your hard work & creativity means so much to me and our beautiful couple.

So, grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy the slideshow.
