Oh I am just so excited to put this wedding on my blog, I hope you guys enjoy! :o)
A few weeks ago Kristen & Joss (two VERY dear friends of ours!) got married in Charleston. I was so excited when Joss told us the news that they got engaged, Kristen is just such a sweetheart (and GORGEOUS girl) that there was no doubt in my mind this wedding will be a wonderful event … little did I know just HOW beautiful everything would look. Kristen, Joss and their wedding planner put so much work into all the details for their big day that it was like walking into a wedding fairy-land – a wedding straight out of a magazine!
Joss & Kristen, I have no words that will explain HOW HAPPY I am for you guys, you are just a perfect couple! Thank you SO much for having us both be part of your very special day!
Kristen & Joss held their ceremony at the French Huguenot Church in downtown Charleston and their reception and the gorgeous (I mean … GORGEOUS!) Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
The pretty bride:
Love the rustic touch in the bouquet … matched perfectly the theme of the whole wedding! Simple & yet so pretty, right!?
Love Joss’ smile in the pic on the left, hehe
The pretty French Huguenot Church, downtown Charleston, South Carolina. Unfortunately I was not allowed to shoot from anywhere past the last seat (Not okay when you want to capture some nice emotions during the ceremony! But I guess it’s just different in the churches in New England …) :o(
Awww!! Look at those happy smiles! :o)
Love this one of Mrs Tosoni! :o)
Such a handsome and sweet couple! Love you guys!
Kristen attched a little monkey to her bouquet since Joss always calls her money, haha! Love it! :o)
Couldn’t get enough of that pretty wall! And yay for finding some shade that day, haha!
We went to a little alley just around the corner of the church, Charleston has so many beautiful spots!
Troy actually captured this one, love it! :o)
And then we headed out to the beautiful Boone Hall Plantation. Visit the venue’s website and check out the intro video (seriously … do it!). SO, SO VERY PRETTY!
LOVED the oak trees (I mean … who wouldn’t??) when you drive into the plantation, just so very pretty & romantic, you can’t take a bad photo in that place!
And the gate …. aaaahhhhh … wedding photographer dream land :o)
And like all those pretty places wouldn’t be nice enough we found this gorgeous tree right next to the mansion. I mean seriously … doesn’t get prettier, right??
Love this one!
Troy drove that cool chair all the way to the plantation, haha! Gotta love it! Cool, right?
Kristen and Joss held their ceremony at the Cotton Dock at the Plantation … had to take a couple photos on dock, while we’re at it :o))
And I love this one, hehe! Gone with the wind … haha! You guys have NO IDEA how freaking hot it was that day! So a nice little breeze and a cool drink made everybody smile :o)) Parts of “Gone with the Wind” were filmed on the plantation, pretty cool, ey?
Ready to see some of their GORGEOUS details? I looooved how everything looked, the flowers (by Branch Design Studio) were just too pretty for words!
Love the fabric hoops in the background (which matched the pillows that were outside), such a fun & playful idea to spice up some walls!
And check out the embroided menu on one of the fabrics!
Ok, not sure if you guys will really see what these are, they were somewhat hard to photograph, but I loved their seating cards (the guys got some handkerchiefs with it and the girls got a hairclip with a real flower attached to it – LOVED that idea … and which woman will say no to a pretty flower??)
Gorgeous flower creations, right??
And guess who this is!!! Awwwww!!! Jesse & Zandra, friends from WAY back … they were actually also my VERY FIRST couple I photographed. Good times! Love you guys & missing you already!
Well, what should I say, I just couldn’t stop photographing their pretty flowers!
And the last photo from the day! Did you love that wedding or what?? :o)
