At Home in South Georgia

I am in south Georgia this week hanging out with my family and friends. It is so easy to relax when you are staying in the country at the end of a dirt road with no long "to-do" list. The best thing is that my cell phone doesn't really work here. But...I am checking email every day so you can reach me that way if you need anything. :)

Ashley & Kyle's Wedding at Dunes West

Ashley & Kyle had a beautiful wedding at Dunes West last night. I am having some problems uploading slideshows, so I am going to leave you with a few images from the night and a link to see all of the photos by signing in at Pictage. I am heading out of town as soon as I get these up and will work on trying to get some slideshows uploaded when I get back in town.

Since the wedding was held at a golf course I decided to use that for the ring shot.

We started the day with a few quick shots of Ashley getting ready.

Ashley and Kyle saw each other before the ceremony and had some time to hang out and enjoy some time together.

And the ceremony begins...

Ashley and Kyle's families were great. I loved how Ashley's dad was so thoughtful throughout the day and was busy making sure small details were taken care of for her.

I loved the golden sunset color in the ceremony images.

Mr. and Mrs. Manus...

They had a really cute cake surrounded by daisy cupcakes.

And then the craziness started! Everyone was laughing at the wedding party being funny on the dance floor.

And of course the girls had to join in the antics!

I hope I will be able to add a slideshow when I return. In the meantime, you may view all of their photos here.

Tori's Senior Photos - Charleston

Yesterday, I went downtown to take senior photos of Tori. It was great to have Sha along with me assisting. Tori is so pretty - my job was super easy! :) I am having a few computer problems and have been unable to get my slideshows loaded. Until I get everything worked out, you can see Tori's photos by signing in here.

Karol & Steven's Creek Club Wedding

Karol and Steven were married at the Creek Club in I'On on Sunday. The weather could not have been more perfect. The wedding was so pretty, but very laid back. It was even a dog friendly day. Be sure to check out their slideshow after you see the images below. After the slideshow ends, you will be prompted to sign in at Pictage where you can view all of the photos and order online if you wish.

The Creek Club at I'On is a really pretty location overlooking the water.

The guys...

Karol and Steven had some quiet time together before the ceremony. I like this shot of Steven checking Karol out!

After they had a chance to talk for a while, we headed down to the dock for a few photos.

The ceremoy was really nice. And Jasmine was such a good girl once she got down the aisle! :)

The first dance...

Is this rock star cute or what?

Everyone was so dressed up for the occasion...

So very Charleston - I loved the stretch limo with the driver in a blue seersucker suit.

Best wishes Karol and Steven - I hope you two are having a blast on your trip!

Jessica & Paul's Wedding at the Wickliffe House

Jessica and Paul are lots of fun, so I knew that I would enjoy their wedding. Everything was glamorous, and Jessica certainly was too. We started the day at the French Quarter Inn where everyone got ready. Jessica and Paul traveled to Charleston for their destination wedding, so I wanted to incorporate Charleston into their photos somehow.

Be sure to watch their slideshow after you see the photos below.

Jessica's necklace...

Their rings...

Once they were dressed, they were transported to the Wickliffe House by the Black Cab Company. The guys were hanging out in this small room before the ceremony with my all time favorite "videographer." :)

Everything at the Wicliffe house was beautiful. Luke Wilson Special Events always does an amazing job and Saturday night was no exception.

After the ceremony we spent a little time getting some photos of Jessica and Paul...

...and then it was time to head outside and party! I love the cozy seating areas that Luke had set up. (And a shout out to Alice who was there for Luke!)

I love to be a fly on the wall and get candid shots of friends and family during the reception.

The flower girls were so very cute!

I'll leave you with a dance shot!

Don't forget to check out Jessica & Paul's slideshow before you leave.

I have a special contest for friends and family of Jessica and Paul. If you would like to win a free $15 gift certificate to Pictage to use for a wedding print - just answer this question: Paul had quite the large can of hair product - what brand was it? :) Sorry Paul - I couldn't resist. You can leave your answer in the comments section below.

Jennifer & Gavin's Wedding at Middleton Place Plantation

It has been a whirlwind weekend with three weddings, but I loved every minute of it. On Friday night, Jennifer and Gavin had a dreamy wedding and reception at Middleton Plantation. Everything was so beautiful. The floral design by Out of Hand was amazing, and their presentation was just as impressive. The packaging of the flowers was a treat in itself with the boutonnieres all wrapped up in pretty boxes, tissue and ribbon. Now if you really know me, you know I'm not one to brag on businesses unless they do an outstanding job. Samantha Slapnik of Emma Grace Designs kept things running smoothly and added her elegant touch to the evening.

After you preview a few images below - be sure to check out Jennifer & Gavin's slideshow.

Friday afternoon was sunny and beautiful with lots of fluffy, white clouds in the sky - the perfect day for an outdoor wedding!

Jennifer and Gavin decided to see each other before the ceremony. This is Jennifer waiting for Gavin. She was so calm, but excited about seeing him.

I love this shot - neither Jennifer nor Gavin could see each other. Ohhh....the anticipation! :)

I loved Gavin's reaction when he first saw Jennifer...

After Jennifer & Gavin shared some quiet time together we took a few "posed" photos.

Although I made a suggestion of where to stand, we were able to capture even more sweet, candid moments. It is so easy to see how much Jennifer and Gavin truely care for each other.

Did they choose a gorgeous location or what?

The ceremony was held under a big oak tree dripping with spanish moss with a beautiful view of the Ashley River. Jennifer's uncle was the minister and several family members were participants in the ceremony. And let me tell you...the tears were flowing!

Jennifer and Gavin arranged for their guests to be transported by carriage from the back lawn where the cocktail reception was held to the reception pavilion.

The place settings were beautiful.

There was lot of toasting...

...and lots of laughter throughout the evening.

The first dance...

Jennifer and Gavin used these little flags at the ceremony. Jennifer is from the U.S. and Gavin is from England, so I decided to use both flags for their ring shots.

Best wishes to you Jennifer & Gavin. Your family and friends were so great too!

Tell all of your engaged friends about me so I can photograph a wedding in England and see you again! :)
