Old Wide Awake Plantation Wedding

Pamela + Alex were wed at the Old Wide Awake Park in Hollywood, SC.

Angel-Oak-Charleston-Wedding-PhotoCharleston is possibly my favorite US city, so any excuse to shoot a wedding there is a dream! Pamela and Alex’s destination wedding at the Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, SC. was no exception. I was so excited that they picked this as their venue. Set against the Stono River, the grounds are lined with historic oaks full of spanish moss; it’s romantic and full of southern charm! Pam and Alex are one of the sweetest couples, and their wedding day was lovely. From her gorgeous, colorful bouquet to the orange adorned garland and gold flatware, every detail was perfect.

How did Alex propose?
“The first gift Alex got Pamela was a stuffed Red Panda. A few years later, we went to Lincoln, Nebraska for the weekend of Alex’s birthday. The first stop was to the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, but when we arrived the zoo was closed! Nonetheless, Alex waltzed up to the gate and knocked. We were let in and told we would be feeding the young Red Pandas! We got to go in the cage with them and feed them apples, which was such a cool (and cute) experience. When the apples ran out, Pamela turned around and Alex was on one knee!”

“Our wedding was held at Wide Awake Park in Hollywood, South Carolina. We loved this venue because it felt like it a secluded getaway from everyday life. We wanted our guests to be able to escape into the natural beauty and have fun being together!”

Pamela and Alex wanted to save the first look for their ceremony, but still wanted to spend a few minutes together. So they exchanged love notes they’d written just before the ceremony. So sweet!

Coastal weather is always so unpredictable. The rain paused just long enough for their ceremony, thankfully. So these two were able to say their vows under the beautiful oak trees overlooking the Stono River as planned.

What do you love most about Alex?
“I’ve never met a nicer, more level-headed person. We’ve been together for almost four years and the only time I’ve heard him yell is while watching sports!”

What qualities do you admire most in Pamela?
“Beyond being the kindest, most beautiful person I’ve even met, I love how passionate Pamela is.  Whether it’s play or work, she gives it everything she’s got. I’m not sure she even knows what the phrase “giving up” even means.”

We also love when couple’s aren’t afraid to break tradition and make their wedding day their own. These two love games more than dancing, so they opted to spend the evening playing classic lawn games with their friends. Several stations of horseshoes, croquet, cornhole, and giant beer bong were set up throughout the park – allowing guests to bond and enjoy a low-key evening.

What was the most fun part of wedding planning for you?
“For Pamela, it was the dress! She designed it herself and seeing it all come together was a lot of fun. Alex said, ‘tasting the food, of course! I also enjoyed putting together the game plan (ha) for the yard games.'”

A Bluemont Vineyard Wedding in Bluemont, Virginia

Natasha + John ( + Scobey bear!)

Bluemont Vineyard Wedding Photo

 

Bluemont Vineyard was the first wedding venue that Natasha and John toured after becoming engaged, and they immediately knew this was the perfect space for their fall vows. Nestled into the side of a mountain, the venue boasts amazing views of the Loudoun Valley overlooking the vineyard and orchards below. The stable would also be perfect for their “Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ” rustic chic fête. Natasha knew she wanted their wedding day to be a celebration that incorporated all of the things they loved…including their pup, Scobey!
And it was such a beautiful wedding for these two! Natasha and John are so sweet together – and we loved that John could barely keep it together every time he saw his beautiful bride (or mom!) It was adorable! We adored being able to document Natasha and John’s day and wish them all the best! Congrats, you two!

Tell us about your wedding inspiration and venue!
  “John and I were married at Bluemont Vineyard, in Bluemont, Virginia on October 09, 2015. When we were doing site visits in early 2014, Bluemont Vineyard was the first venue we saw, and we immediately fell in love with it! We loved the history and rustic look of the stable with the high wood beams and stone floors.  The scenery outside was exactly where I dreamed we would be married and we knew it would look even better with the leaves changing in the fall.  John and I knew we wanted to have an outdoor/indoor type wedding, so Bluemont was perfect for us. We actually didn’t visit any other sites after Bluemont, and quickly booked the venue soon after.
The theme for our wedding was, “Beer, Bourbon and BBQ.” John and I love all three and we wanted our wedding to reflect our love for good drinks and food. I incorporated the bourbon theme by using empty bourbon bottles as our centerpieces and we even had a specialty bourbon cocktail, “The Bourbon Smash.” I especially love all things “southern.” I had three different sets of cocktail napkins – one said, “cheers y’all”, another had our monogrammed initials, “NEJ” and the last was GOP themed (I work in politics and John and I are very active in that community.)”

What qualities in John do you most admire?
“John is extremely funny, witty, loyal, and has a big heart. He’s the type of friend where if you need anything at 3 in the morning, he’s there for you, no questions asked. I admire how protective John is, and how much he shows he loves me, our dog, and our families. John is a family man with upstanding values and morals. He could not wait to get married, and he especially could not wait to wear a ring to symbolize our marriage – to me that is so sweet because it shows how he could not wait to be a husband and eventually a dad to our “real” children!”

How did you and John meet?
“John and I met on December 06, 2008 through a mutual friend, Victoria. I was new to the DC area (having just graduated college in Florida), and John lived and went to school in Virginia. It was our friend’s 21st birthday, and knowing I was new to the area, Victoria invited me out to celebrate with her friends just so I could meet more people. I met John that night but I was much more interested in watching my alma mater, South Florida Bulls, play a huge rival that I wasn’t paying much attention to him. After the game (which we ended up losing), John and I talked the rest of the night and he tried to cheer me up. He was so funny and charming that I was disappointed he didn’t ask for my number at the end of the night. The next day, I called Victoria, and asked her to give John my number and he called me later that evening. We began dating a few weeks after that!”

What qualities do you most admire in Natasha?
“I admire Natasha’s compassion and ability to feel other’s pain and emotions. I admire her ability to comfort those around her. Although not always so, Natasha’s patience. I also love her intelligence, drive, and ambition. She is also a culinary master who loves to take care of those around her by providing the comfort of a home cooked meal. I can’t wait to have children with her because I know she will be such a great mother and will instill so many great qualities upon them.”

What is your favorite wedding day memory?
“One of our fondest memories of the day was spending time with our friends and family who we haven’t seen in a while. Most of my friends and family live in Florida or over on the west coast, and John’s father lives in Arizona, so it was nice to have everyone be in the same room together. We loved seeing everyone having fun, and enjoying all the wedding festivities like cornhole, the fire pit, and the s’mores bar. Best of all, our favorite memory was coming to the realization that we were finally married!!”

How did John propose to you?
“John proposed to me on December 06, 2013. He contacted my best friend, Alecia (who was my MOH) and told her his plans. She called me and asked if I would fly down to Florida that weekend to go wedding dress shopping with her. Of course I agreed. After John had dropped me off at the airport in Washington DC (our home), unbeknownst to me, he then drove home and grabbed our dog and a packed bag and began his 800 mile trek to Florida.  He arrived 14 hours later in Orlando in order to sit down with my father and ask for my hand in marriage.  He then drove two more hours to Tampa and checked into our hotel for the night where he eagerly waited for the huge surprise.  Later that day, Alecia and I had plans to meet up with some friends in downtown Tampa. As we were walking around, looking for our friends, I noticed a big group of people getting their photo taken and I had thought I stepped into their picture. At the time, I had no idea the group of people were actually our friends who were there to witness the entire proposal. As I was walking towards them, Scobey our dog comes running out behind the wall and that’s when I knew. Scobey was wearing a shirt that read, “Daddy has a question” and John comes from behind the wall shortly after. It was such a surprise because I had no idea he was planning on proposing. The entire proposal was extra special because John made sure we were in Tampa, that our dog was involved, and that we were surrounded by our friends who we consider family.”

Did you have any favorite wedding details?
“John and I love our sweet pup, Scobey Bear, and so for our wedding, I wanted to include a little piece of “home” on all our guest’s tables. A couple weeks before the wedding, I asked our friends and family to submit a photo of their dog to me. I framed each picture and placed the appropriate photo on each guest’s table. While I did have table numbers, I called each table by the dog’s name. So for example, our friend’s Meghan and JJ sat at the “Zoe and Ghost” table (they have two huskies.) Each table setting was so personal to our guests and everyone was able to have their dog with them at the wedding. I also love monogrammed letters and I had to make sure I got a customized monogram wiht our new initials hanging up in the venue.”

What advice do you have for couples currently planning their own weddings?
“Relax, have a few drinks, and push through it. Make sure the day-of you really get to enjoy your wedding day. Sit and eat dinner, dance with your friends and family, and take a moment to look around to appreciate your hard work and planning.”

A Pembroke Hall Wedding

Carissa + Ach | Edenton, NC

Edenton-NC-Wedding-Photography

It doesn’t get more fairy tale than this gorgeous worldly themed wedding at the historic Pembroke Hall overlooking Edenton Bay. Carissa and Ach met while they were both studying in Paris and fell in love while he introduced her to the city.  Pembroke Hall was the perfect setting for their ‘worldly wedding!’ This charming Greek Revival home has been a landmark for Edenton since 1850. With a huge, landscaped garden area and tons of natural light streaming into the home – we were in photographer heaven!

We loved all of the details, from the heart-shaped confetti made from maps and globe centerpieces to their bilingual signs for guests. And I was so happy to see that Ach had a wooden bowtie! So fun! Carissa , of course, was a gorgeous bride who completed her ensemble with a parasol and floral crown. These two were both amazing, kind, and so very lovely – I don’t think we’ve ever felt more welcomed at a wedding.

Congrats, Carissa + Ach! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

What is your favorite wedding day memory?
“There are so many to choose from… but I’d say the best moment was the few minutes directly after the ceremony. After walking back through the crowd, it was just us, talking and soaking in the moment.”

How did Ach propose to you?
“It was the day after Valentine’s Day during a vacation to Venice, Italy. We had already talked about marriage but he surprised me by preparing an official proposal. We were sitting near a lovely canal, waiting for our dinner reservation, when he pulled out a ring.”

How did you and Ach meet?
“One of my first roommates when I moved to Paris was a good friend of his. At first, we all hung out in big groups. Not long after, he offered to show me around the city and help with my French. It didn’t take long for it to become just the two of us. Paris is the best place on Earth to fall in love!”

What’s your favorite way to unwind together?
“We love being outdoors. We enjoy going for long spontaneous walks around the city, relaxing in parks and enjoying great food. We also really enjoy taking in the calm of the mountains or countryside. Most of all, we just like doing things together.”

Kelsey + Zach’s Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard Wedding in Lawndale, NC.

Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard Wedding Photo

 

Kelsey and Zach first met when they were both 13…but it definitely wasn’t love at first sight! Luckily, they ran into one another a few years later, and have been together ever since.
This sweet couple was recently married at the Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard in Lawndale, North Carolina. Their gorgeous vintage-inspired vineyard wedding was perfect in every way. …And I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many tears shed at a wedding! These two are clearly adored by all of their friends and family. Everyone was just SO excited to be celebrating with them!

How did you and Zachary meet?
“We met when we were 13 or so at a motocross race. Both of our brothers were involved and our families were pretty close. We actually used to both despise each other, haha. By coincidence we ended up going to the same town for college and ran into each other one day while out, after not talking or seeing each other for about 5 years. We hung out one day when we were home for Christmas break and have been together ever since!

“Our favorite memory was just being able to spend such a special day with our family and friends. Seeing him standing there as I was walking down the aisle with a grin on his face.”

Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their weddings?
“Our best advice would be, “Don’t stress over the small details or minor things, because in the end it will all come together and be perfect!” Also, someone told me to ‘just sit together at your reception and take it all in, even if it’s just for a minute or two.’ That special moment definitely makes a difference.”
