Elis and Monica's day finally came!  Their wedding was on a hot Friday in SC, which isn't anything unusual.  I arrived and the bride was just finishing up getting ready for the 'first look' and boy was she a vision.  I knew what to expect because I did her bridal portraits, which you can find further down on the blog, but she still took my breath away.

Elis and Monica met when they were sophomores in high school and both worked at the local party supply store, Party City.  They waited until they graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken before getting married.  

The wedding party consisted of close family and friends including a few grooms women who helped me keep the guys in line.  The whole party were wonderful to work with and were so warm and welcoming that I stayed afterwards and helped them celebrate this sweet couple.

These are just a few of my favorites!
