Get ready to view a beautiful wedding and gorgeous couple! They are so sweet and I loved capturing them in my camera! Initially just Kristen’s parents and I met and we really clicked. When I met Kristen, I loved her simple, beautiful character. She was a perfect bride to work with. Charles complements her so well with his quiet demeanor as he takes everything in. Kristen, with her bubbly personality and great, big, beautiful smile, glides through the room, making everyone else around her as happy as she is. Charles looks at his bride in the most gentle and loving way I have ever seen. Kristen and Charles met at the College of Charleston, Kristen now practices law and Charles is in banking.
The wedding day presented a family very warm and gracious in everything they had planned for guests including the details. Kristen dressed and “primped” at a beautiful, traditional home on the battery with a less traditional interior comprising many colors and interesting objects. The fun had just begun on the battery!
Some of the details I loved were: the bagpiper escorting the wedding party down Longitude Lane to the reception from the church, the very special keepsake pins Kristen had on her bouquet (such as her Tri Delt pin & the Camera pin from her photographer grandfather), their signature drink named after their dog “The Colonel” and matching cocktail napkins, and how could I forget Bill Murray crashing the wedding! I loved many personal, touching moments on their wedding day: the first look Kristen had with her stepfather, the first look for Kristen and Charles, and the dance of Charles with his mother.
My most favorite part of the day was when the newly married couple, Mr. and Mrs. Thompson, were the stars of some amazing pictures! Congratulations Kristen and Charles! Thank you thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day!
