Last wedding of 2011: Dani and Joe at St. Luke’s Chapel and the Holiday Inn Mount Pleasant

Dani and Joe’s wedding was the best way to end our 2011 wedding year 🙂 It was a party!!! They had a special ring warming as part of the ceremony, which was such a sweet way to start their married lives together. And then, there was dancing, dancing, and more dancing! Followed by sparklers and mustaches. Yes, mustaches. Thank you again for letting me share in the celebration!

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!)

April was so fun to photograph! I ought to share a handful of her bridal portraits in a different post soon…she had one of my favorite bridal sessions all year!

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!)
