As a wedding photographer based in Atlanta I always enjoy traveling around the southeast.   I see a bit of it all.  I have photographed a lot of venues, and seen a lot of different types of events.  In fact, I have seen about 650 of them.  This couple had the most wonderfully relaxed wedding, which was held at their Rock Hill, South Carolina  home.  Don’t be fooled by the word relaxed!  This bride brought her vision to life with her details, and did it with real elegance.  Everywhere one looked there was a unique twist on the norm to be found.  A picnic basket turned card table, mason jar beer mugs, crayons on a paper covered table, antique napkins, and mismatched silver…..The vibe of the wedding was that of a southern garden party with casual elegance.


The bride got her day started at Vogue Salon and Spa.  After the perfect ‘do’ was achieved, she headed to the ceremony site.  It was a  team effort with many helpful hands to transform the couple’s backyard into a lawn venue.  Some ominous weather reports had us worried, but Mother Nature smiled on us.  The ceremony took place in front of the most gigantic and gorgeous gathering of azaleas that I have ever seen.  These things must have been planted a hundred years ago!  The couple had a fabulous time with their guests, dancing to live music, with a BBQ going, s’mores and horseshoes to boot. 

Cheers to a creative and intimate event!
