Jason and Lauren Wedding, The Jasmine House, Irmo, South Carolina

Jason and Lauren Wedding, The Jasmine House, Irmo, South Carolina

Venue: The River Road and The Jasmine House

Baker: Sarah Christmas

Florist: Tim’s Touch

Wedding Coordinator: Sarah Christmas

December 15th of 2018 was a rainy day at the River Road and the Jasmine House but when it was time for Jason and Lauren’s wedding to begin the sky cleared and the birds sang.

Jason and Lauren’s story started with the growing trend of them both swiping right on tinder. They had their first date at San Jose and it was love at first sight and they’ve been together for almost four years now!!

I asked how Jason proposed and Lauren said, “ Jason planned a trip to Charleston sc to visit friends for a graduation party. we parked at the battery and he said his friends were close and right down the street. He introduced me to a friend from Columbia prior to meeting up with his friends. We started walking and he dropped down on one knee and popped the question. The friend from Columbia only followed us so they could capture it on camera. I was shocked!!”


When choosing their wedding venue they just loved that the River Road and the Jasmine House was so relaxed and a more intimate space. They loved the vintage buildings and landscaping and felt like the venue best matched their own personal style.

They are both passionate people who look forward to the exchange of wedding vows the most on their wedding day.


Daniel & Britta Engagement Columbia, South Carolina

Daniel & Britta Engagement Columbia, South Carolina

I met with Daniel and Britta yesterday.  They live in Florida but Britta is from Columbia so they decided to have their wedding here on May 4th of 2018.  Hints why they wore t-shirts and brought light sabers.  

They were so much fun to work with, I really had a great time meeting them and getting to know their story.  Britta wanted to go to school for the deaf because she wanted to do something different, so she packed her bags and headed down to Florida.  She soon met Daniel at the local church and he asked her to a movie, Batman vs. Superman, since she didn't know anyone.  And of course, the rest is history!

Elis & Monica Wedding T&S Farm Events Batesburg, South Carolina

Elis & Monica Wedding T&S Farm Events Batesburg, South Carolina

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!

Stafford & Kaylyn Elopement Gaston, SC

Stafford & Kaylyn Elopement Gaston, SC

Saturday April 1st was seriously a gorgeous day.  So much so that Stafford and Kaylyn decided to say their I do's and surprise the rest of their family!  When I arrived at Stafford's parent's house, the front porch was decorated with mason jars with pink, blue and white flowers in them going up the steps and white ribbon that wrapped around the bannisters.  It was such a pretty sight to see!  

The guests included Stafford's parents, the girlfriend of the best man and Kaylyn's uncle who also walked her down the "aisle".  The short and sweet ceremony was performed by Kaylyn's mother who did a wonderful job of delivering a sweet speech while holding back tears.

This was by far the sweetest and most special ceremony that I have ever been apart of and I thank the family for allowing me the privilege of capturing these wonderful memories!
