I love working 2nd shooting with Hunter McRae. She is so talented and such a sweet soul to boot! Carolyn and David decided to have the wedding at Oakland Plantation, due to their family history there! This was the first time I photographed a wedding at Oakland Plantation, eager to finally see it. It was a quiet, untouched corner of Mt Pleasant that celebrated the raw beauty of Charleston!
The day was stunning, with the sun streaming through the Spanish moss of the oak trees. The ladies got ready in one historical home, while the men got ready in another charming home. Both homes were across from each other, reminding me of a small European village wedding.
This well seems to just be out of a storybook! I’m always on the search for a great ring shot and when I saw this vintage sundial, I had to set this up. What perfect words to live by each day! This small historic home was so quaint, yet the perfect wooden house for groomsmen to get ready. David writing a sweet note to his bride-to-be! Carolyn started her day, surrounded by her family and friends for a quiet prayer before the ceremony.
Easily one of my favorite moments of a ceremony is the father walking his daughter down the aisle. This father was just beaming today. The groomsmen definitely needed a photo of all their class rings together! These two were so adorable and in love! The cocktail hour took place under two grand oak trees. Pure perfection! Delicious finger foods for the guests!
I love getting a few photos of the bride or groom’s parents together. I love this sparkler exit to a vintage car under the avenue of oaks! Congrats to Carolyn and David!
