Sarah + Zach | A Northeast Presbyterian and Members Club at Woodcreek Wedding

When I walked into her parents’ house, Sarah was still doing some last minute things.  But for the most part, all the details had been taken care of, her bags were packed and ready to move, and all that was left to do were the finishing touches of her make-up and to put on her dress so that she could go and see her groom.

Before he knew it, his bride was in place and waiting around the corner from him.  No longer would they be long distance.  No longer would they have to say goodnight over the phone or via text.  No longer would they have to wait until the next visit to see each other.  The moment he rounded the corner to see her for the first time, they closed the gap on being apart for a while and just held each other as they soaked in what this day meant.

The day was full of celebration with friends and family and lots of happy tears…  And dancing!  DJ Paul kept the dance floor hopping with swing and shag music all evening!  Which was perfect because Paul was their dance instructor when they first met swing dancing in Clemson.

Enjoy some of my favorites from Sarah and Zach’s red, white and blue wedding!

Their colors were red, white and blue, but there were a couple touches of orange for their Clemson roots.

There was a 100% chance of rain for their Monday wedding the week before.  And as time passed and all of us prayed that the rain would hold off, that percentage kept decreasing.  When I arrived in Columbia, the skies were overcast and there was a 30% chance of rain for the hour during their ceremony.  And as I got out of my car, I said one more prayer for the day and the weather… and you know what?  It did rain.  But ONLY during the ceremony!!  Thank you, Lord for such a beautiful day!
