Stephanie and Jeremy’s Summerall Chapel Ceremony & Francis Marion Hotel Reception

Stephanie & Jeremy wanted their wedding to be a celebration of their new life together with their family and friends. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Charleston. Summerall was beautifully illuminated in a shade of purple be the sun shining through the stained glass windows, which was amazing since the wedding colors included purple. I wonder if Stephanie planned it that way :) And OMG, CHECK OUT THEIR CAKE!

 











Wedding at St. Luke’s Chapel and Francis Marion Hotel reception!

April + Justin, married at last!

After much planning and anticipation, April & Justin’s wedding was wonderful! They have been such a fun-loving couple to work with! 

Their rehearsal dinner was on a harbor cruise on the newly launched Spirit of the Lowcountry from SpiritLine Cruises. It is such a beautiful boat and was perfect for the occasion! (Nathan and I had the privilege of photographing the launch party for the Spirit of the Lowcountry about a month ago!)

In April’s Dad’s rehearsal dinner toast, he referenced Forrest Gump, saying that April and Justin “are like peas and carrots”…so I ‘borrowed’ April’s engagement ring and got creative:

April wore green heels on her wedding day. (I love fun wedding day shoes – if you can’t tell by now, haha!)

I barely had to prompt the guys to ham it up for the camera…they’re all naturals at that!

They rented a trolley from Absolutely Charleston to take their guests to and from the Frances Marion Hotel. (It was such a great idea!) 

I can tell you personally how great to work with Heidi is in the Absolutely Charleston wedding transportation office. She’s the best! (She rescued my tripod that I left on the trolly – oops!)
