We really couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, more affectionate and thoughtful couple than our Chicago, IL bride and groom, Kelly and Drew! Their Magnolia Plantation wedding day was beautiful, from the moment we met Kelly and her bridesmaids in the bridal suite at The Mills House downtown all the way until they were sent off in a fairytale sparkler exit with the iconic Magnolia Plantation home in the background!
But it wasn’t just the incredible Charleston venue, the gorgeous blue flowing bridesmaids gowns, the lush florals, the romantic tables capes, the killer band who came in from Charlotte or Kelly’s unbelievable lace wedding gown that made us love this wedding so much – it was 100% just plain Kelly + Drew! Take away all of the beautiful decor, the venue, the florals, and the band and the beauty was STILL all around because they were SO perfectly connected and intentional with each other all day… Love just oozed out of every aspect and moment of their day! Plus, they really valued photos of themselves together which made us so happy! Getting to spend a full hour with them was like a DREAM!! I have to say though, the moment Drew saw Kelly during the first look and immediately began to cry (Ahhh, our favorite kind of reaction) was one of my favorite moments of the day and really set the tone for the rest of the wedding to unfold! Enjoy some of our favorite shots from their Summer Charleston wedding!
Congratulations Kelly + Drew and may you enjoy a lifetime full of days as wonderful as this one!!
