Sarah and Arthur have friends who generously offered up their lush private garden as the setting for their summer engagement session. Like many Charleston gardens, this haven has a little of everything: texture, color, sun, shade, water, stones and leafy goodness. Although I never tire of green, we ambled down the street to throw in a few more colorful backdrops. These two are so relaxed soaking up the summer splendor. I am really looking forward to their autumn wedding on Goat Island!

After several rainouts, I finally had a perfect evening to take some shots of photographer friend Paige Winn, her handsome husband and little Hadley, enjoying the final weeks in her studio apartment. I usually steer clear of big belly photography, but I like the natural ease of this beach maternity session and hope Paige’s family will look back on this time of anticipation and feel all warm and fuzzy. I can’t wait to meet Hadley!

Time for a gracious dose of springtime wedded bliss! Ashley and Greg live in Charlotte, NC, but chose to have a destination wedding in the Lowcountry. There are several stunning venues for a Kiawah Island wedding, and they chose The Sanctuary Hotel. It was a perfect day for a wedding on the grand lawn, and the tented reception was dreamy. Ashley planned lots of charming details herself. One of my favorites is her custom monogram (A and G combined), which graced the invitations, menu, cake and more. She had Something Blue aplenty: bridesmaids gowns, guys’ ties, place card ribbons and her wedding date embroidered into her gown. So charming!
Vendors included: Martina Liana gown from J Majors Bridal in Charlotte, Jenny Yoo at Bella Bridesmaid Charlotte, Tiger Lily Florist, the Williams Duo, DJ Lee Edwards, Invitations Only in Winston-Salem, with groom’s attire from Joseph Bank.
The spring rains were nicely timed — one shower cleared out just before the ceremony, and the steady rain came during dinner but wrapped up before the smores, cornhole and sparklers. The couple honeymooned in Turks and Caicos. Ashley, thanks so much for choosing me to document your elegant day!Pin It
