JENNIFER + JUSTIN’S ST MARTIN WEDDING

Jennifer + JustinSt Martin?!  Yes please!  We met Jennifer + Justin when they were guests at Tate & Davis’s wedding here in Charleston!  Jill asked if they wanted a picture together, and Justin responded with, “Sure! Do you shoot international weddings by chance?”, and 3 weeks later, we were sending off a contract and making plans to fly to St Martin for their wedding 4 months later, and pinching ourselves the entire time!  We LOVE shooting Charleston weddings, but any time we get the chance to travel for work, especially somewhere tropical like the Caribbean, we’re basically head over heels!  Jennifer + Justin absolutely love St. Martin and came to the island last year to scope out the perfect spot to hold their nuptials and to spend the week with their friends!  What better way to have a destination wedding than to rent an entire compound for the week and have separate villas for each of your guests!  HELLO paradise!!!  So, that’s what they did!  With a gigantic compound like Mes Amis, private chefs making breakfast and dinner everyday, maids coming to your room every morning, and a view like this, how could you possibly not enjoy yourselves?!  Jennifer + Justin welcomed Aaron and I into their wedding week with open arms and treated us as if we were 2 of their 24 wedding guests!  It was an honor, a pleasure, and a beautiful gift to Aaron and I!  Jennifer + Justin, thank you for trusting us to capture your wedding day and for welcoming us into your week!  We’ll NEVER, ever, ever forget you two or your fabulous wedding!!   Enjoy some of our favorite photos!

JON + ANNA’S HARBOUR CLUB WEDDING

jon and anna

It’s no surprise Charleston was just named the #2 city in the world by Conde Naste Traveler!  It’s just plain gorgeous, just like Anna + Jon and their wedding a couple weeks ago at The Harbour Club in downtown Charleston, designed and coordinated by the ever so talented Christine & Carrie of Mac & B Events!  It was the very first weekend we’d had in about 7 where not a drop of rain fell from the sky, which was perfectly fitting for their outdoor, rooftop wedding at The Harbour Club!  Whew!  The morning started off with Anna and her 8 bridesmaids having lunch together and being pampered at Pink Dot Beauty Bar while Jon and his 8 groomsmen hung out at their south of broad home, right across from Rainbow Row!  It was the perfect start to a beautiful destination wedding day for these two Chicago locals!  Enjoy some of our favorites from Anna & Jon’s wedding and reception! Bride and groom kissing, southern wedding, wedding first look, Anna + Jon BakInside Pink Dot Beauty Bar, Great place to get ready for a wedding in Charleston, Anna + Jon BakBridal hair and makeup being done, Pink Dot Beauty Bar, creative getting ready shots for a wedding, Anna + Jon BakBridal hair and makeup being done, Pink Dot Beauty Bar, creative getting ready shots for a wedding, Anna + Jon BakWedding dress hanging from a Chandelier, Bouquet and shoes on a windowsill, Anna + Jon Bakhello gorgeous, bride applying lipstick in a mirror, Anna + Jon BakBride and her bridesmaids in a salon, hair and makeup at Pink Dot Beauty Bar, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakGroom with best man, driving to a wedding, Anna + Jon BakGroomsmen gift, copper beer mug, tag heuer watch for groom gift, Anna + Jon Bakwedding details, champagne in an ice bucket, white rose boutonniere, gold letter press wedding invitations, Anna + Jon BakPearl earrings for the bride, gift to the bride, letter to the groom, Anna + Jon BakTiger Lily Florist bouquets, pink and white garden roses, Anna + Jon BakThe first look at Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakThe first look at Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakThe first look at Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom in Charleston, portraits in Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakTiger Lily Florist pink and white garden roses with green hydrangea bouquet, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom in Charleston, portraits in Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom in Charleston, portraits in Waterfront Park, Anna + Jon BakBridal party on cobblestone streets, Southern style bridesmaids dresses, grey pink and white wedding deco, Anna + Jon Bak8 groomsmen, dark gray groomsmen suits, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom portraits in downtown Charleston, Anna + Jon BakBridal party on cobblestone streets, Southern style bridesmaids dresses, grey pink and white wedding deco, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom portraits in Waterfront Park, South Carolina wedding, outdoor wedding, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom photos on the streets of Charleston, Southern style wedding, grey pink and white wedding deco, Anna + Jon BakBridal party on cobblestone streets, Southern style bridesmaids dresses, grey pink and white wedding deco, Anna + Jon BakBride and groom kissing at a romantic Southern wedding, grey pink and white wedding deco, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon Bakreserved sign for wedding ceremony, ceremony programs, Anna + Jon Bakthe Harbour Club wedding ceremony on the rooftop, Anna + Jon Bakthe Harbour Club wedding ceremony on the rooftop, Anna + Jon Bakthe Harbour Club wedding ceremony on the rooftop, Anna + Jon BakGuestbook table, tall floral reception centerpieces, Harbour Club wedding, Anna + Jon BakCute wedding koozies, creative place cards, different place cards for different dietary needs at a wedding reception, pink, white and green floral centerpieces, Anna + Jon BakCute wedding koozies, creative place cards, Harbour Club reception, different place cards for different dietary needs at a wedding reception, pink, white and green floral centerpieces, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakBride and groom dancing at a Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakHarbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakMr and Mrs forks, bride place setting, groom place setting, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakHarbour Club wedding reception, wedding salad, wedding bar service, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakWedding favors, firefly vodka wedding favors, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon Bakdiamond halo engagement ring, gold letterpress wedding invitations, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon Bakwedding desserts, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakHarbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakCafe lights on a rooftop wedding, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakAnna + Jon BakMr and Mrs pillow, Anna + Jon BakRooftop wedding in Charleston, Harbour Club wedding reception, Anna + Jon BakHarbour Club wedding reception, glow stick sendoff, Anna + Jon BakCharleston Rickshaw, Just married sign on a rickshaw, wedding sendoff in Charleston, Anna + Jon BakTowards the end of their wedding reception, Brent & Sara with Film Anywhere Productions literally set up a screen and played this fabulous “sam day edit video” of Anna + Jon’s wedding day (up until that moment!)  We were SERIOUSLY impressed!!
