Casey and Chris, the extremely hard working couple, had a beautiful night in Pawleys Island, SC for a wedding. I had a blast with everyone there. DJ Scott Ries and his man Joe kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT. Annie from Elegant Occasions worked her magic and pulled everything together to make Pawleys Plantation look amazing. The team at Pawleys puts out some amazing food, just ask the DJ’s. I heard they ate all the leftovers. :) Casey’s dress from Fancy Frocks in Murrells Inlet was as gorgeous as she was and her girls looked beautiful too. Looking forward to working with these two in the future.
Whitnie and Josh, as well as their entire families, are the nicest people ever. They could not have been more of a pleasure to work with throughout this experience. Hidden Acres looked stunning on this special night for sure and a little bit of rain wasn’t going to stop anyone from having an amazing time. The flowers from Daisy Fair in Conway were to die for and the cake from Coccadots was prefect. Annie Watts from Elegant Occasions may have outdone herself this time. Not sure how she does it without a team of 50 people. DJ Wayne Cribb from Premier DJ Entertainment did his thang as usual and rocked the tent all night. There were personal touches around every corner…. Photo booth from East Coast Party Booth was as fun and silly as ever. A giant canvas collage painted by Caitlin from Redemption Art of different times during the event was quite unique. A touching set of slide shows and then actual fireworks to end the night. And BTW, that dress. Really? How stunning was that dress from The Little White Dress?
One word comes to mind when I think about this wedding, and that word is “FAMILY.” Fredanna and Mike had family literally come from all across the world. I heard different accents every time I turned a corner and loved seeing their two families come together as one. The ceremony took place in Garden City, SC at St. Michaels Catholic Church. The seats were filled and the ceremony was beautiful and very personal. The country reception out at Thompson Farms in Conway, SC was filled with details that Fredanna and Mike had worked very hard on. Beautiful heartfelt speeches began the evening and then everybody danced until the very end.
I had the best time with Kristin and her mom walking around Thompson Farm in Conway finding all the cool spots for photos. Kristin is so beautiful, had the best smile, and an all around wonderful personality. I loved getting to know her and look forward to seeing her become a successful orthodontist someday.
I met up with Alexis and her mom at the River walk in Conway where we just walked around finding lots of neat spots for a portrait. I enjoyed hearing about all the activities Alexis had done in school, her amazing trip to New York City and her thoughts of where she wants to go to college. Here were my favorites from the night.
So much thought and preparation went into this wedding. There were so many details from the décor to Jaziya’s son getting a ring at the ceremony. I loved every minute of it and look forward to shooting at Hidden Acres, with its rustic charm and personality. The flowers came from Pawleys Island’s Greenskeeper Florist. The Djs from Hubbell Entertainment did a great job all night. And the cake from Taste and See Bakery in Carolina Forest was the perfect finishing touch. Jaziya, Chad and little Aven are the coolest and most loving family who I look forward to working with in the future.
Haley is one of my Senior Reps who was part of my 50’s themed shoot this summer. She is a senior at St. James High School this year and if any of her classmates book a session with me, Haley gets gift cards to her favorite store and print credit with Middle Child Photography. We had a blast going out to the country finding fun and unique spots to capture some photos. We may or may not have been yelled at but we had a great time.
