Chris & Sarah Burnett Wedding, Gilbert, South Carolina

Chris & Sarah Burnett Wedding, Gilbert, South Carolina

Venue: Southern Oaks Events

Baker: Bailey’s Cakes

Florist: The brides sister!

Chris and Sarah got engaged on April 21 of 2018 and planned their big day at Southern Oaks Events in Gilbert, South Carolina.  They met in the 4th grade and have been friends for 14 years and dating for 2 years.  They both immediately describe their relationship as being carefree which is wonderful to me!

He proposed by stopping to ask a lady to take their picture while they were walking along Fernandina Beach at sunset and after she took a couple Chris said, “Wait, can you take one more?” and he pulled out the box, got down on one knee, and asked Sarah to marry him. Needless to say, the lady and Sarah were both shocked!

 Of Course I asked why she chose Southern Oaks and she said, “I first saw Southern Oaks in pictures when one of my extended cousins got married there and I thought it was beautiful. So, I looked into it while doing (premature) research on wedding venues and availabilities and August 11 was one of the few Saturdays they had available for the end of this year. I knew it was the perfect time and the perfect place for our reception!” Their ceremony was held at a very special location, her home church, Red Bank Methodist Church in Red Bank, SC.

The most special and important moment for them both is seeing each other when the doors to the Sanctuary open and Sarah enters and the second, is their first kiss as a married couple!

Andrew & Katie got engaged!

Andrew & Katie got engaged!

I was apart of something so special!  Katie's dad contacted me about a surprise engagement for his daughter and I just couldn't pass it up!  Andrew's family had planned a party specifically so that he could propose to his high school sweetheart.  I was surrounded by both of Andrew and Katie's closest friends and family while he led her to the backyard where everyone lined up with the letters "will you marry me" spelled out in balloons.

Katie's reaction was filled with surprise and shock as well as excitement.  I had such a wonderful evening capturing this special moment and getting to know both of their families as well as their story.

Andrew and Katie met in high school and went to prom together and had been together ever since.  They have both graduated college and are now going to different graduate schools in different states and Andrew decided to go ahead and seal the deal before Katie went off to Tennessee.

Katie was so surprised and never expected to be proposed to.  She said that she thought that he was going to give her a horse as a going away gift but in a way he did!  The engagement ring Andrew gave her has two horse shoes on either side which is a perfect touch.

Victoria Harvey Bridal Portraits, Columbia, South Carolina

Victoria Harvey Bridal Portraits, Columbia, South Carolina

Wow... just wow!  Victoria made a stunning bride!  This was such a fantastic shoot.  Victoria and Richard decided on the South Carolina Alumni Center as the reception for their wedding and so it was fitting to do Victoria's bridal portraits there.  Victoria's mother said that as soon as she walked through the doors and saw that staircase, she was in love and I have to agree!

Marina's Bridal Portraits, 701 Whaley, Columbia, South Carolina

Marina's Bridal Portraits, 701 Whaley, Columbia, South Carolina

Marina was such a beautiful bride!  She chose 701 Whaley for her bridal portraits and then totally rocked it!  The pealing paint made for a beautiful contrast with Marina's super sexy and modern fitted dress.  We then went outside next to the building where there are huge wooden doors that added another great architectural feature to her modern dress!
