As promised the beautiful wedding at Bonnie Doone Plantation! The details at this gorgeous wedding had me at HELLO! 🙂 There is something so special when you are surrounded by so much history! The moss trees and the beautiful historic plantation was like a picture straight out of Gone with the Wind.
I HAD to quickly hang the dress on this gorgeous entry way chandelier ! With the help of my amazing second shooter Stephanie Kopf Photography (www.stephaniekopfphotography.com- she took the right photo!) we got the dress up there. I am a little vertically challenged but with a chair and a boost we did it! It was worth it, don’t you think?!
Lauren did one of my favorite things, a Dad reveal! I have had a lot of brides request this and I think it is one of the sweetest things! Look at that face!
The wedding was absolutely beautiful and it was accented with the floral handcrafted arc that the couple stood under.
Their wedding portraits continued in this amazing garden that is directly beside the main plantation house it reminded me of the book The Secret Garden! It was a favorite as I was growing up!
The reception had GLASS BOTTLED COKES, y’all. I was the happiest photographer in South Carolina, I love me some glass bottled cokes and cake. I love cake. Some people joke that I am a wedding photographer so I can have cake, a lot of really good cake! If I was on my death bed I would ask for bottled coke and cake, it’s that serious. SO I was HAPPY, so accordingly I had to take a pretty picture of them and share it with you guys!
Lauren and Jonathan posing for the next Coke commercial and more CAKE. Isn’t it just beautiful?
Jonathan’s father owns this amazing red Ford pickup truck the used to make their grand exit with but I had to pull them outside during sunset to get some portraits with them around it! I absolutely loved the truck! It was the perfect addition to the feel of the night and made for some wonderful images!
The night continued on and the tea lights made for a beautiful backdrop as the night fell upon us!
What an absoluetly stunning wedding I had the pleasure of being a part of!
Congratulations Jonathan and Lauren!!
