hello, everybody! do you guys remember this adorable couple? we got to shoot their engagement session back in the spring. (bonus: we got to meet their sweet bulldog quincy!!) well, they tied the knot this past weekend at the charleston harbor resort and marina in mt. pleasant, sc. (make sure to scroll to the end for a gorgeous night shot of the resort!).  this wedding was perfect. we couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather; it felt like we were in the bahamas all day with the clear & sunny day, the tiki hut, palm trees all around, and a few bob marley tracks during cocktail hour! :)  the couple was great to work with too, we’re thinking of asking kara to write a handbook for all brides-to-be.  she’s got this thing wedding planning thing on lock, y’all.

some of our favorite details unique to Kara & Jay’s day:  Kara designed and created all the hand-written escort cards, all the monkey’s fist knots on each table setting she tied herself (it’s those things holding the table numbers) and the cake topper was hand-painted by Kara’s aunt for her grandparent’s 40th wedding anniversary. SO special! of course, the shoes (mel hasn’t met a pair of bridal shoes she doesn’t love) and all the sweet friends and family that came from all over to celebrate these two and witness the joining of their lives together.

Thank you, Kara & Jay for letting us be a part – we’re really honored. We wish you the best in life and love and hope to see you again, soon!!!

xo,

g&m

wow! where to start? first, thank you for your patience – there were SO many great images to choose from! second, i (mel) have to warn you up front: i’m a little a lot infatuated with sarah’s shoes. you’ll see them many times.

SO many great things about this wedding. so much love.

sarah’s gracious personality showing through in nearly every photo. joe’s contagious laugher and the guests having so much fun celebrating with these two sweet people.

i (mel, again) love that the cake topper was Sarah’s mom’s tiara from her wedding!

love the bourbon, pork and peanuts theme- that’s right, folks! those are pork rinds!! :)

there were a few raindrops right before the ceremony, but Father Williams calmed everyone’s doubts and the ceremony started right on time.

the flower girls LOVE their Aunt Sarah…the dogwood flowers in her hair matched the flower girl necklaces…

OH, have you ever seen a bride’s cape?! this was made from her mother’s veil! HOW precious is that!? i could keep going, but i’ll let you get to the pictures instead of giving you 1000 words.

Thank you to Sarah & Joe for letting us be a part of your special day. We hope you enjoy Bourbon Tour 2012 and that life and marriage are filled with as much love as we saw on Sunday.

hi there! sooo, it’s been a while since our last post. but we’ve got lots of great images coming!! thanks for coming by and come back soon, ya’ hear?!

welcome to the charming, down-home wedding day of Shannah and Alec. We met these two at church (if you’re in the statesville/troutman area and looking for a church, come visit!!! it’s awesome!). two of my (mel’s) favorite things about these two: 1- they were neighbors before they started dating and 2 – they love to go fishing together! how cool is that? i’d bet the world would be a more relaxed place if we all could go fishing for fun now and then…

anywho, fastforward a bit and recently, in the backyard of a friend with beautiful light all around, these two tied the knot with lots of fun details… a beautiful fall wedding complete with pumpkins and gourds! not to be missed: boots (!), beautiful food, and gumballs – like the kind from the trees!! – used with burlap as decor!! so clever!

thank you, shannah and alec for letting us capture the story of your wedding day. We wish you the very best in your marriage and beyond! see you soon!
