Hello! It is Wedding Wednesday!
TODAY’S LOCATION: A Beautiful Dune West Destination Wedding. Elegance and southern charm at its finest on a beautiful golf course in Charleston SC.
FEATURED COUPLE: Chris + Hilary
I know many of you are home because the virus has you social distancing/ quarantined for the next few weeks. Many of you work in the health profession and are sacrificing your own health to take care of your community – THANK YOU!
This is difficult and scary time, but if we take the precautions and protect one another, we may be a bit worse for wear – but we will make it! Praying for you all as we do what we can to survive this and take care of those we love.
February 15th, 2020 (pre-corona virus time) Chris + Hillary were married in a beautiful destination wedding in the Charleston SC area. Side note, did you know Charleston is the #1 destination wedding location in the US? Yup, it is. On this day, the weather was absolute beautiful – perfect even! You could not have ordered a more perfect day to get married. Chris + Hillary tied the knot in front of a close group friends and family. The Wild Dunes Golf Course sits next to the water and the blend of the green grass, sparkling water, and warm sunset makes this one of my favorite wedding ceremonies of all time! Gor-geous! !!!
Hillary is so kind and full of life and Chris is hysterical. I absolutely enjoyed following them around all day. Hillary was the most perfect bride and just took in the whole day and enjoyed everyone around her. She got a little teary eyed when she saw her daddy for their first look. Her daddy was floored when he saw her and absolutely beamed. I loved Chris’s reaction when he saw Hillary for their first look as well. They read letters they had written to each other and were able to slow down and have a moment before the activities. Hillary was emotional before she walked down the aisle, but when the pastor asked them to turn and look at their guests, Chris became visibly emotional. It was a really sweet moment.
After the ceremony we did family and bridal party photos in front of the water. ALL my Charleston dreams came true during portraits time for this beautiful couple!!!! Keep scrolling!
Their reception was stunning as the room filled with a warm glow from the sun moved to a soft glow of candlelit tables. The food was great, the speeches were tear jerkers, and the dancing was high energy. It was a GREAT PARTY.
Chris and Hillary have been in love for a long time I was so honored to be able to capture their story. I hope you enjoy scrolling through their wedding day photos!
