Jeff & Nekedia Wedding, Columbia, South Carolina

Jeff & Nekedia Wedding, Columbia, South Carolina

Venue: South Carolina Lace House and Gardens

Cake: Desmond Pringle with Gardenia’s Custom Cakes & Catering LLC

DJ: DJ D-Rex

Wedding Coordinator: Kristen Coulter

Jeff and Nekedia have been together for 6 years and met through the military. They were both at Fort Jackson at the Px one day and it took off from there!

Nekedia said, “We were on vacation for Thanksgiving in Cancun, Mexico. We had just came back from a day excursion of playing with dolphins and I was getting the babies ready to take a nap. I turn around and there he is with a ring. He had this big smile on his face and saying these silly things ( basically showing how afraid he really was)”.

And their wedding was so beautiful, intimate and romantic.

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.

Brandon and Harley met because of a mutual friend.  One night that mutual friend invited Brandon and Harley to play an Xbox party.  “We were going to play Call of Duty together.  After playing online games for a few months, I gave him my number and we haven’t stopped talking since!”

When I asked how Brandon proposed, Harley responded by saying, “I had already picked out and ordered my engagement ring.  Brandon was the only one who knew when my ring was ready to be picked up.  He lied and said he had to work late.  He was actually picking up the ring!!  He proposed that night/morning around 2:00 AM. He planned on waiting till the next day but couldn’t wait.  So he got on his knee in the dinning room.”

Harley wanted something vintage, romantic with an outdoor space and fell in love with Duncan Estates as soon as she saw it.  She was excited to be able to make the venue her own.

They are both beyond excited to have all of their family and friends together.  Most of Harley’s family is coming from 12 hours away and Brandon’s is coming about 3 hours away.  But most of all, they are both ready to finally marry their best friend!!

Ben & Christin Herring, Asheville, North Carolina

Ben & Christin Herring, Asheville, North Carolina

This wedding and venue is probably one of my favorites so far!  Not only was the venue, Addison Family Farms, was amazingly beautiful but the wedding party themselves were so great to work with.  I love a good small ceremony.  It makes things laid back and very intimate and a little less stressful for everyone involved.

Here's some of my favorites from that day.

Andrew & Kate 1208 Washington Place, Columbia, South Carolina

Andrew & Kate 1208 Washington Place, Columbia, South Carolina

What a beautiful day for a wedding!  This was my first Catholic ceremony and it was amazing.  The church was pretty with a high vaulted ceiling and a beautiful nave and stained glass windows.  Kate came down the aisle beaming and Andrew mirrored her happiness while waiting at the end of the aisle for her.

I met Andrew and Kate a little over a year ago at a Starbucks in town and we talked for over an hour.  They are just the most genuinely nice and charming people you will ever meet.  We went to my beloved peach orchards for their engagement shoot and they did such an amazing job that I couldn't wait for their wedding!

And it finally happened after over a year of waiting and these photos are only a slight few of my favorites!!
