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! :)

Don't forget to check out their slideshow here.
