Charleston Cistern

FILED IN: Weddings

One of the first Charleston weddings I covered started at the College of Charleston Cistern, second shooting with the amazingly talented Dana Cubbage!

We captured Amy and Seth’s vibrant, romantic wedding day, from Bethel United Methodist Church and College of Charleston Cistern downtown to James Island Yacht Club for reception!
