I loved, LOVED, loved getting to be a part of Amber and Andy’s downtown Charleston, SC wedding. Amber has a fun and spunky personality that keeps her friends and Andy laughing. Plus, she and Andy are gorgeous together, so what’s not to love about that?
I started the day with the girls at a home in Mt. Pleasant before heading downtown for the ceremony at Bethel United Methodist Church. After the ceremony, a party bus took us to various spots in historic downtown Charleston before ending at the Francis Marion for their reception. I am thankful for Reese Moore who was my second shooter and amongst many things, photographed the guys getting ready while I was with the girls. Several of the shots in this post are hers.
As usual . . . my FAVORITE photos of the day, by far, are the portraits . . . and since my sweet husband recommended that I start with my favs, I am front loading them all to the beginning of this post. After you get to see the bride, groom and their wedding party throughout historic Charleston, then, you will see the day in the order that it unraveled.
(PS…vendors who made their day amazing include: Cakes by Kasarda, Tiger Lily Florist, Finger Snappin Entertainment (transportation & DJ) and Francis Marion Catering.)
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted photos of my crazy, curly-haired, sweet baby James. Snapped these on a beautiful evening in Hilton Head and thought I’d share.
Thankful for him!
Lisa and Trip’s love story is one of college sweethearts who parted ways and eventually reconnected. While Lisa had no idea back in college that he was the one, she says that Trip always knew she was the love of his life. So today, as I post their elegantly simple Tampa wedding, I am celebrating second chances!
The ceremony took place at the Academy of Holy Names and then the guests headed to Armani’s for a late lunch reception. The beautiful rooftop restaurant was all theirs for the afternoon. The weather, which could have been a downpour like the day before, held off for us – but filled the sky with clouds, which was very helpful for mid-day wedding photos on Bayshore Boulevard.
Major props to the gorgeous J Crew dresses worn by Lisa and her bridesmaids. And the beautiful flowers provided by La Vie en Rose.
We’ll start with the portraits (my fav and go to the order of the day) . . . and, since I have been trying to post more black and whites, will mix in some of those too! Enjoy!
I met up with Lisa and her girls in the hotel room just as she was putting on some finishing touches . . .
Then it was off to the Academy . . .
. . . where Trip was waiting to marry her.
After the ceremony and portraits, we headed to Armani’s for their sweet, beautiful luncheon. As you’ll see, their guest really enjoyed themselves.
A few more snapshots of the bride and groom . . .
. . . and then they lived happily ever after. Congratulations Lisa and Trip! Thanks for letting me be a part of your wedding day.
