Wedding at St. Luke’s Chapel and Reception at the Cooper River Room at Mount Pleasant Riverfront Park

Our first time photographing a reception at the Cooper River Room venue at Mount Pleasant Riverfront Park was incredibly rewarding, and provided an amazing dusk over Charleston and the Bridge.  Lovely St. Luke’s Chapel, of is amazing for a small to medium sized wedding group and is absolutely perfect for pictures.  Love it.













Wedding at St. Luke’s Chapel and Reception at the Wickliffe House in Charleston, SC

I had the pleasure, again, of second shooting for Valerie Schooling a couple weeks ago.    Brennan and Brad were married at St. Luke’s Chapel on MUSC campus, and had their reception across the street at the Wickliffe House (with amazing catering by Mediterra).   Candice at Yoj Events provided flawless and thoughtful coordination.  As always, ECBC church family weddings are always so fun and so sweet.

Katie and David’s wedding at St. Luke’s Chapel and the Wickliffe House, Charleston, SC

St. Luke’s Chapel and the Wickliffe house are a perfect venue combination in downtown Charleston. They are a half a block walk from one another just off of the MUSC campus. Katie and David put together a sweet ceremony and reception which offered so many great picture possibilities.

The ladies got ready at the Wycliffe House where the reception was later held.  Great old house with lots of windows, which makes for pretty pictures ;)

Katie didn't let her dad see her dress until the wedding day when they had this very sweet moment.

The Wycliffe House has this beautiful spiral staircase with a north facing window.  We had a lot of fun here.

More fun on the stairs 🙂

This was Katie's Special request, to have a picture in the stained glass window.

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!)

Their wedding ceremony was at one of my favorite ceremonly locations here in Charleston – St. Luke’s Chapel! I just adore its architecture!

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!)
