Rewind back months ago, Claire called me on the phone after her preliminary inquiry in an email. She was talking a mile a minute, before booking anything, “I want you to be my photographer! Not just because you have shot my friends’ weddings, but because you capture it. You capture those moments and the candids and it’s not about the posed pictures.” THAT my friends is when I told my husband, “Claire will be a bride I will love!” She’s in sales, just like I used to be; she gets it, she gets “the close,” the hard deal, and asks for what she wants. Claire is a true sales person, whom I appreciate more than you will know. I immediately loved her tenacity, her directness, her speed, her love of getting what she dreamed of for her wedding day.
Adam is a perfect fit for Claire, as he is very laid back, and goes with the flow. The looks of love were beaming from both Claire and Adam on June 21. Their wedding took place at the Robert Mills House in downtown Columbia, SC. It was one of the hottest days this year, but they didn’t let that stop the celebration and joy. Claire’s dress, from Modern Trousseau Charleston, fit her perfectly, with the gorgeous lace high collar and open back. The groomsmen wore the traditional white dinner jackets with black bow ties, and blended in with the white and green theme of the wedding. Her bridesmaid dresses were Trina Turk, classic navy and not your traditional bridesmaid dresses, but were just right for the occasion! Each bridesmaid had a unique David Aubrey necklace. Wrapped around Claire’s bouquet was her great great grandmother’s handkerchief. As the night progressed, the band and the dancing were on fire! Sol Fusion, is a fantastic band! They knew so many songs and didn’t take a break from 8-11pm. (Highly recommend this Charlotte, NC band to any family searching for a wedding band!)
Claire and Adam, thank you so much for having me as your wedding photographer! Wishing you both a life full of happiness!
