BILL + KATHERINE’S LOWNDES GROVE ENGAGEMENT

Bill-and-KatherineWhere would we be without Match.com in the 21st century?!  This beautiful lawyer and handsome pilot have Match.com to thank for their love story!  (For the record, they’re our 4th engaged couple who’ve met on Match!)  So, here’s how it all went down!  Katherine was in Minneapolis for law school and Bill was based there, working as a pilot for Delta, and LUCKILY Match.com realized they were perfect for each other (which after spending an hour with them last week, we couldn’t agree more!).  After a year of dating, Bill was transferred to Atlanta and Katherine took a leap of faith and decided to sit for the Georgia bar exam. She passed; obviously!!  She’s not only gorgeous, but sharp as a tack!  So, they made the move to Atlanta together and about 2 years later Bill proposed in Piedmont Park and brought her whole family down as a surprise to celebrate  … to which we say, “Nice work Bill!”!

Katherine + BillSo fast forward to their engagement session day!  There’s nothing like a huge storm rolling in from the West to put a damper on an engagement shoot… or wait, think again!  If you’re shooting with a sweet as can be couple like Katherine & Bill, who are so go with the flow that no amount of rain could ruin their time with us in front of the camera, then fret no more and embrace the water from the sky as the romantic element that it is!!  Ah how we love couples like these guys!  Our original plan was to shoot downtown, but with the rain approaching, we decided to shoot under the porch at The William Aiken House where they’ll be getting married later this year, and then there was talk of  using the lobby of The Vendue Hotel downtown, but thanks to the super accommodating ladies at Patrick Properties & A. Caldwell Events  for working her magic, we were able to get into Lowndes Grove Plantation, last minute, to duck undercover from the rain!  Luckily though, the skies were good to us and we got to shoot outside under a light drizzle!  Yes please!  Enjoy some of our favorites!Katherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + BillKatherine + Bill

ANNA + DAN’S LOWNDES GROVE WEDDING

Anna + Dan

What’s grander than having a destination wedding at a beautiful historic Charleston plantation home on the Ashley River that also happens to be one of the top wedding venues in America according to Brides Magazine?!  Well, not much I think?!  And to make it more awesome in this case, Dan & Anna’s first trip they ever took together was to our charming little town of Charleston and the first time Dan told her he loved her was right here!!  It’s no wonder they chose it to start their first day of forever together!!  I love when our couples chose Charleston not just for it’s charm and beauty, but because it’s special to them and their love story, and these two are no exception!  One of my favorite things about their story is that Dan is actually stationed with the army in Italy right now and they’ve been writing, skyping and calling each other through their entire engagement!  There’s something so intentional to me about long distance relationships! Plus, Dan didn’t fly into Charleston until a couple days before the wedding, so you can imagine the build up of excitement and giddyness to see each other!  I feel like you can see it in their eyes in almost every photo! …He’s so proud to be her husband and she feels so safe and loved in his arms!  It sounds cheesy, but it was SO apparent and so adorable!    Since Anna was doing the planning on her own, she enlisted the help of the ever so talented Southern Protocol to bring her winter wonderland wedding to fruition and boy did they nail it with beautiful Christmas trees, twinkling lights, lanterns hung from live oak trees, beautiful winter florals, chinchilla throw blankets, elegant lounge furniture…  and 3 CAKES!!!!  Yes, 3 beautiful cakes!  We loved it and had the best time following these two around all night and documenting their beautiful wedding!  Enjoy some of our favorites from the day!
