The McCommon wedding is one of my favorite weddings of all time! The wedding was at the Founder’s Hall at Charles Towne Landing in Charleston, SC. The ceremony was planned to be outside on the lawn but at noon a tropical storm hit Charleston and it rained for the rest of the day. The ceremony location was moved to the porch, which ended up being even prettier than the lawn. I have to say that the team of vendors was incredible! The event planner was on top of everything without a sign of stress, and the entire venue looked gorgeous when Anna and her assistant were through with it. Chef Bob catered the event and I have never had better shrimp and grits in my life, and I have eaten a lot of shrimp and grits. The DJ did a great job and people were dancing until the bride and groom had to leave. Shannon, my second shooter for the day, was wonderful and just a joy to work with. Lastly, my fiancé Natraj came along for the wedding and he helped out so much from moving chairs in from the rain to helping me hang the dresses for detail shots. He has such a servant’s heart and I appreciate him so much.
I loved shooting every moment of the day, and this wedding reminded me of why I wanted to be a wedding photographer in the first place. Lucas and Ashley may be the kindest couple I have ever had the privilege of photographing. There was a tropical storm wrecking their plans for an outdoor wedding, and they just took it in stride and were gracious about the entire situation. Nothing could stop their joy on this day that they had waited so long for. The story of how they met and fell in love can be read HERE on their engagement post, but on their wedding day they met in the most unique first look I’ve photographed. Their sweet families and bridal party waited in the bridal room, and Ashley stood at the door in the hall, but still where everyone could see her. Lucas walked slowly down the hall towards his bride while she was faced away from him. As he walked around her and looked into the eyes of his soon to be bride, his face broke out into the biggest smile. Tears fell from her eyes as the man who loved her so dearly looked upon her with such joy. It was the moment that dreams were coming true! I choked back the tears during their portrait time because I was just so incredibly happy that God had brought together such a wonderful couple. I pray that they look at each other the same way for the next 50 years.
