daniel stowe botanical garden wedding | matt + molly

Can more weddings please be more like Matt and Molly’s? First of all, they chose a stunning venue (ahem… we may be a little biased since we did get married at the same venue), they chose a beautiful and elegant design theme and hired experienced professional event designer to carry out their vision. They made each and every one of their guests feel like part of their relationship by adding lots of personal touches. Not only did we adore this wedding, we have adored this couple for the past year and a half! Matt and Molly booked us 18 months in advance, and we’ve enjoyed every opportunity we’ve had to get to know them, such as their engagement session and Molly’s glamourous coffee-shop bridal session! Enjoy a bunch of our favorites from Matt and Molly’s wedding, and see a complete list of their vendors at the bottom of the post!

gatherings at dorchester wedding in charleston, sc | john + savannah

John and Savannah came to us just 6 weeks before their wedding! Savannah’s brother had just found out he was going to be deployed with the military unexpectedly, and so would not be able attend the wedding on its original date! Savannah and John decided to move their intended wedding date up so that he could be there- this meant a lot less time to plan! John had known Melissa and me for a long time through church before he moved to Charleston for college, and when Savannah contacted us about capturing their wedding-day, we were so glad we had their date available! On the morning of the wedding, the forecast called for bleak thunderstorms and the skies looked grim for the outdoor ceremony. Melissa actually stood in the rain, getting completely soaked, while she shot photos of John and his groomsmen standing under the covered porch of the venue. But God showed favor to this couple, whose hearts and intentions were openly to glorify Him through their wedding, and He parted the clouds just in time for the ceremony! Everything was beautiful, and we couldn’t be happier for the bride and groom! Enjoy a few of our favorites from John and Savannah’s wedding, and see a complete list of participating vendors at the bottom of this post!
