Cecile and Patrick – The Duncan Estate

// Author: admin // 0 Comments

Cecile and Patrick met at work.  She was in payroll and he was in the IT department!  Today they are husband and wife.  We traveled to Spartanburg to see the grand Duncan Estate.  A beautiful house and acreage that has been transformed into an impressive wedding venue.  Cecile got ready upstairs in the bridal suite with her bridesmaids and Patrick and the guys got themselves together downstairs in the lounge.  We kept them from seeing each other as we photographed them all around the estate before the wedding.

The weather was great for their outdoor wedding and we had such a beautiful house as the background for their formals.  The grand entrance into their reception tent followed straight into their first dance.  The rest of the evening was quite a celebration.  The photo booth nearby had a constant stream of guests as did the sushi bar section of the buffet.

The grand farewell was a gantlet of birdseed that covered them and their car completely.  (and us and our equipment!)

Good luck Cecile and Patrick!

Maryanna and Scott Wedding – The Garden House Bed and Breakfast

// Author: admin // 0 Comments

Maryanna and Scott met a Clemson University.  She is here from Russia studying hard and Scott works at the University. Maryanna and Scott picked a perfect day for their wedding.  It was a very intimate service with just their dozen or so family members.  We enjoyed the Garden House’s garden areas for some after ceremony shots before they took off for home.

We have photographed at the Garden House Bed and Breakfast in Simpsonville before.  Long, long ago.  It was great seeing it again and the owners still remember me from the last shoot back in 2007.  It is such a lovely little venue and the owners are wonderful to work with.

 

Tim and Laura at the Gassaway Mansion

Tim and Laura were married at one of our favorite venues, the Gassaway Mansion here in Greenville. Tim and his crew hung out outside by the tent while Laura got ready upstairs in the bride’s room. After a lovely ceremony at the front of the historic house, they retired to a reception under the big tent, but not before we got some great shots of the bridal party. We really enjoyed documenting their wedding day and wish them well on their journey into life together!

Hilary and Chris’ Wedding at the Cliffs at Glassy Mountain Chapel / Huguenot Loft

// Author: admin // 0 Comments

Hilary and Chris are a wonderful couple who really like their cars.  (And motorcycles)  That aside, we all met at the Cliffs at Glassy Mountain’s Club to get ready for the big wedding.  The guys downstairs in the “Card Room”. The ladies got ready in the club’s beautiful and large powder room.

What beautiful weather for a wedding day!  The Wedding Woman, a local wedding officiant, presided in a very full chapel.  After the wedding, we had a huge group photo in front of the chapel with all the friends, guests, and family.  Chris and Hilary ran through a gauntlet of bubbles and to their waiting Porsche.

We had them swing back around for some photos on top of the mountain top before we all headed to the Huguenot Loft for a wonderful reception.
