Gately and Mikell are married!

After so much preparation, Gately and Mikell tied the knot over Labor Day weekend in a ceremony at St John the Baptist followed by a reception at the always lovely William Aiken House. Their bright, jewel toned palette made the usual eye-catching yellow background of house just quietly fade away. Color popped from every corner of the venue, from the grand magnolia to the specialty cocktails. Gately’s bridesmaids each wore a custom dress in varying shades of turquoise and fuchsia and carried soft pink bouquets from Lotus Flower. The ladies at WED pulled it all off and the Big Swing Ballroom Blasters made the night just fly by. Congratulations Gatley and Mikell and thank you for letting me capture your big day!

Kirsten and Paul in the Knot Weddings Magazine!

Kirsten Hocker and Paul Mason had a spectacular wedding last October at Lowndes Grove Plantation. Once again, the ladies at WED teamed up with Dahlia Designs and knocked it out of the park with a beautiful tent filled with fall-hued sprays of yellow, orange, green and brown. Their colorful wedding is featured in the current Fall issue of The Knot Weddings Magazine! Congratulations Kirsten and Paul!


And I can’t resist throwing in a few more of my favorites…






Congratulations again to the happy couple!

Jaci and Jamie

I was so amped to post Jaci and Jamie’s grassy and gorgeous Ocean Course wedding that I put a picture of them up in my new blog header before I even finished editing the scores of pictures I took at their event. They went to school in Virginia so they already started out with bonus points in my book, but they are truly two of the nicest and most genuinely relaxed and happy people I’ve ever worked with. Throw in the talented mix of Dahlia Designs and WED, add a cool ocean breeze and it’s pretty much perfection.











I didn’t think these guys could get any cooler but then Jamie’s band took the stage and played Paul Simon’s “Diamonds on the soles of her shoes.” Extra credit for that one.


In order to spare you from an overdose of fabulous I’ve held off on posting pictures of the band, you’ll have to check in to The Wedding Row next week for those. Hint: it involves a SEQUINED JUMPSUIT. Congratulations and THANK YOU Jaci and Jamie! (If you really can’t stand the anticipation you can see the entire event here.)

Amanda and Ian

No wayward plume of volcanic ash was going to stand in between Amanda and Ian and their simply stunning event last month at the William Aiken House. The couple and much of their family and guests had to fly out of the UK during the chaotic weeks following that unpronounceable Icelandic volcano’s eruption. Maybe it was the luck of the Irish, but they made it, and were married under clear, sunny skies in a fantastic evening that played up both Amanda’s southern charm and Ian’s Irish roots. Event design is by the fabulous ladies at WED, flowers are by Sara at Dahlia Design, stationery by Rachel at Studio R.







Quite fittingly, they departed the festivities in a London Black Cab. And these pictures are just a taste!!! See more on The Wedding Row or the entire event here. Congratulations Amanda and Ian!
