I am so glad you're here! This is my little corner where I get to share some of my most favorite images from engagements, weddings, births, my travels and my own little family from time to time. Hang out, look around, and please reach out to say hello!
It was actually her maid of honor that took the blame for their wedding happening this past Saturday. Molly met Katie at Clemson orientation, so their first night of their first semester of college, they ran into Katie’s friend from high school, Chris.
They became quick friends, but it took them 2.5 years to go on their first date to dinner and a movie. But regardless of how nervous she was, there was no need for her to worry because that date was the beginning of their lifelong adventure together.
Molly and Chris’s wedding day was so perfectly sweet, fun, and full of laughter! It was so apparent how much their friends and family enjoyed being there and celebrating together. And everyone welcomed me and Laci (my amazing second shooter) as if we’d always known them!
Thank you guys so much for allowing me to be a part of your story this past year and to document this piece of your adventure. I hope you’re having an incredible time in Sedona and that you’re able to take some time away from the red rocks to walk back through your wedding day!
Molly’s dress and details were simply divine!
She kept telling me that the back of the dress was her favorite part… isn’t it beautiful?
They always say “Love you to the moon and back again” to each other…
So Molly surprised Chris and had it engraved in his wedding band!
I’m still so impressed that Whole Foods did their florals! They were gorgeous!
Molly’s “something old” was her great-grandmother’s locket that she carried around her bouquet.
So beautiful, Molly!
There was a tiny hole in one of the leaves of her bouquet and it happened to be in the shape of a heart…
So dapper, Chris!!
The back of the church had the cutest little garden full of all kinds of blooms, which was perfect for wedding party photos.
Molly did a first look with her dad, who brought his own sense of style to the day :-)
How cute are they though??
Molly and Chris decided to wait and see each other until the ceremony, but they wanted a few moments to chat and exchange letters.
I love the shot on the left that Laci captured.
Married! And so happy!
They did their exit after the ceremony so that all of their guests could be there… I love this!
We then had time to travel to downtown Spartanburg to get wedding party photos and some bride and groom portraits. And let me just tell you… downtown Spartanburg has done a LOT since I lived there in high school! It’s so pretty!
How fun is this wedding party?!?
I’m not going to lie, I love these next two shots. This first one is mine…
And Laci captured this angle with First Baptist Spartanburg in the background.
Molly and Chris were so great! And even though it was pretty cold, Molly wanted to keep powering through their bride and groom portraits… which I think was totally worth it. Between these two, the light and the wind, we couldn’t have asked for anything other than a little less chill :-)
I just love this one!
Y’all. This light. I could have continued to photograph these two (in downtown Spartanburg of all places!) for ages!!
But, we wanted to join the reception at Indigo Hall.
And I wanted to get Molly inside where it was warm!
I loved how pretty and simple their cake was! And y’all know I loved their colors!
We headed outside for some group shots (don’t worry guys, those will be in the final gallery!) and a few more bride and groom portraits before the sun set.
And then it was time to dance the night away!
Y’all are so much fun! Congrats, you guys!
A million thanks to the most amazing vendors who helped make Molly + Chris’s day happen!
