I have been so excited to post about this wedding since I first went through the images for the sneak peek. When I first received the e-mail from Karen asking me to be their wedding photographer, I couldn’t wait to travel to Summerville to the Woodlands Inn. Stephen and Karen were a photographer’s DREAM! Their wedding was perfectly intimate, fun (as you will see from the reception photos!) and warm. Everyone in both their families was amazing and they couldn’t have been more gracious!
I was excited to get there early for some getting ready shots!
When Karen told me they wanted to see each other before the wedding, I was so excited to get to capture that moment! It was such an amazing time. I know they will cherish those first few minutes together.
After the ceremony, Stephen, Karen and I walked around the grounds of the fabulous Woodlands Inn for some photos of the two of them together.
And then we were off to the reception. Friends, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved this reception. Not because it was over the top. Not because of the gorgeous flowers or delicious cake. But because every single face I saw when I looked around the room was having FUN. I can only image this reception completely met or far exceeded the bride and groom’s expectations! I’m only going to post a few from the reception because I want Stephen and Karen to relive those memories as they look at the images together. But this says it all:
Stephen and Karen, I thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you will cherish your photographs for many, many years to come. I wish you health and happiness in your new adventures together!
