OH HI!!! WELCOME TO THE STP BLOG! I'M SARA AND I AM WEDDING AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN UPSTATE SC. GRAB A SWEET TEA AND ENJOY YOUR VISIT !
Today on the blog is the beautiful wedding of Shaun and Maddie. They were married March 3, 2018 at The Ryan Nicholas Inn in Simpsonville. Today marks their FIRST MONTH TOGETHER! Congrats Shaun and Maddie! These two have known each other since K-5 and have been friends as long as they can remember. They were in the same friend group but it wasn’t until college that these two got together.
I loved photographing and serving this couple and their families so much. They understood the importance of marriage and what this day meant. The whole day was filled with happy tears from the moment Shaun opened his gift from Maddie where she put together a pop up scrapbook of everything they had done together (note: they have known each other since kindergarten), to Maddie’ s father seeing her for the first time in her dress, to when Maddie stared into Shaun’s eyes and just took in the moment. Their ceremony was God honoring and it was a real time of worship.
What I noticed about Shaun throughout the day was that he cared about the details and he is totally a romantic. He had been waiting a long time for his bride and he wanted to savor every minute. Maddie was one of the most beautiful (See her bridal session HERE! ) and thoughtful brides I have ever met. I could write and entire post on the things I noticed she did for people. As a last minute surprise, Maddie had the Clemson Tiger come to wedding a surprise for Shaun. Both of them are huge Clemson fans, so it meant a lot to Shaun. The dancing at this reception was incredible as well. Maddie has been a dancer and cheerleader for years and her whole team was there to celebrate with her.

I am so happy or this couple as they begin their life together married. They have never known life without each other, and I hope they never do.
Congratulations Shaun + Maddie!
