Preserving Memories

Spencer sat on the couch with the big book overflowing from his little lap. A wide grin covered his face as he flipped the pages. He was about two at the time and this wasn’t a Dr. Seuss or Pete the Cat book that had his full attention, it was Mommy and Daddy’s wedding album.

You probably recognize this story because it isn’t just our story. This one goes way back for generations. You probably remember looking through your parents or grandparents wedding album when you were a kid. A wedding album isn’t just another book. It’s special. It’s a part of your heritage, your family history.

Winter Harper Fowlkes and Soho South Wedding

Alyssa's room was buzzing with activity as the ladies finished up their final preparations for the wedding. Things were a bit different on the other side of the Desoto, in Jordan’s room. I’m not sure if it was pre-ceremony nerves or if they were still recovering from the previous night’s festivities, but it  was much darker and things were moving a bit slower. 

After they were ready we headed out for the First Look. We positioned Jordan on the side of the Green Meldrim House to await his bride. Whether it was nerves or a hangover it all seemed to melt away as he turned to see Alyssa.

St. James and Knights of Columbus Wedding

Ryan took a deep breath as the doors to the sanctuary opened and he got his first view of Ashley in her wedding dress. She seemed to float as her dad walked her down the aisle. She paused as she neared her groom and shared a moment with her mom. 

Bubbles filled the air and Ryan pumped his fist as the newly weds shared a kiss outside the church. After months of planning and maybe a little stress, it was finally time to celebrate.

Lafayette Square and The Brice Wedding

As the carriage rolled into sight, the last guests left the protection of the small tent covering the coffee bar and made their way to their seats as a light rain fell over Lafayette Square. Bagpiper Caleb Harkleroad played Highland Cathedral as the kilted grooms made their way down the aisle.

 Gio and Juan Carlos have a mantra, “Happiness is a Lifestyle” and certainly showed as they expressed their love and said “I do” surrounded by family and friends. They didn’t allow the rain to dampen their day as we captured some joyful and romantic photos before heading to The Brice to continue the celebration.

Don't Hang That Dress From a Tree

So this may come as a shock, but I’m just gonna go ahead and say it… A wedding dress looks better on a bride than hanging from a tree. Whew! I’m glad to get that out. Now I know that may ruffle some feathers, but it’s the truth. 

Now I’m as guilty as anyone here. We’ve all done it. Most wedding photographers at some point have taken the dress and gone out to photograph it hanging from a tree, the side of a barn, a chandelier, or some other dramatic picturesque scene. The thing is I’m not even sure why.
