JENNIFER & BRETT, PART II {WEDDING}| CHARLESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Jennifer and Brett are full of that contagious kind of laughter… plus the smirks, giggles and cute jokes.  They don’t take themselves too seriously, so the result is a truly laid back affair where everyone has fun.  Jennifer laughed going down the aisle!  They laughed as they exchanged rings.  Brett smirked and scratched his head all silly like when he realized they’d been pronounced “husband and wife”.  You know, I hope their children and grandchildren look back on these wedding pictures with a sense of wonder at all the joy shared by these two. Let’s be real now.  There wasn’t just a bunch of kissy kissy going on.  Jennifer and her girls can tear up a dance floor!  Oh, my!!  Darrell of The Connellys set up his very popular photo booth on the grounds for added entertainment.  Jennifer might have been in 99% of the pictures.  The camera loves her and she loves the camera!  Well, that is easy to see below. Jennifer and Brett, I wish you continued happiness and a long life...

JENNIFER & BRETT, PART I {WEDDING}| CHARLESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

When I look at my 2011 calendar, I am overwhelmed with this huge sense of gratitude for the clients I get to work with this year.  Happy, fun, artistic and altogether delightful people.  This wedding….well, this couple…they truly kicked off my season in a glorious way.  First of all, the weather was so unbelievably warm and sunny….it was on the miraculous side.  I mean, perfect weather in February?  So God smiled down on them from the start.  And speaking of smiles, Jennifer gives them out freely and liberally to everyone.  That would have to be one of the first things you’d notice about her.  She glows all of the time, not just on her wedding day.  So….Jennifer never gave me a list of pictures, not one request or order.  She just had the time of her life and let it all unfold to be documented naturally and easily.  Can I get an “AMEN”?!  : ) It’s not just Brett and Jennifer that made this wedding so special.  We had our dream team, a.k.a. Luke Wilson Special Events, involved from the day they were engaged.  Luke and Megan did what they do so well, that is, make it look effortless.  But even better, since they were such good friends of the bride, I got to photograph LWSE breaking it down on the dance floor later that evening.  It was a treat!!  Maybe they’ll forgive me for posting all those dancing shots later. All the event rock stars were in attendance.  The floral designs were by Katie Bell of Timeless Designs; Fish catered the event;  Lowndes Grove served as ceremony and...

NIKKI & JEFF {WEDDING} | CHARLESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I want to offer a quick congrats to Nikki and Jeff!  The newlyweds are a spunky couple who have enough attitude to share, which you can see below.  Their dinner conversations must be very interesting!  Jeff is deploying this week for a whole year to Afghanistan.  Nikki is newly in the nursing field.  There are teenage children in the household, too.  This blended family was a hoot to photograph.  Here’s a small sampling of the chemistry and laughs they share....
