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!


Caitlin & Nick’s French Huguenot Church Wedding and Francis Marion Reception

Caitlin and Nick were so excited about their wedding photos that they rented a Party Bus to go take photos between the wedding and reception, which were both at awesome locations! It was HOT outside but they were real troopers about it! The reception had some of the funniest entrances by a wedding party ever! Good times!

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!


April and her bridesmaids!


The newly-announced Mr. and Mrs. Justin Buckingham!



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!)
