DAVIS + TATE’S HISTORIC RICE MILL WEDDING IN CHARLESTON

tate-and-davis

Aaron and I had the chance to shoot a fabulous wedding at two of the coolest venues in Charleston; The Mills House and The Historic Rice Mill!  (…And yes, we got the names of them confused all day long!)  Not only was the Rice Mill built in the 1800’s, but it’s on the National Register of Historic Places and happens to be the only of Charleston’s three antebellum rice mills to still be standing.  The charm of the building is almost as fabulous as the couple who we got the chance to photograph in it!  The first time I talked to Tate over the phone, we immediately clicked!  Her bursts of adorable energy were what drew me in and made me fall in love with her and Davis!  This girl loves her friends, adore’s her hubby, never stops smiling, and can seriously break it down on the dance floor!  🙂  Their wedding day started off calm and cool as the breeze outside, with a team from Stuart Laurence Salon filling the bridal suite at The Mills House and Tate playing song after song on her iphone, dedicating each one to one of her 11 bridesmaids!  It was the perfect day!  It wasn’t until everyone was seated for their outdoor ceremony that the sky began to open and the rain made it’s grand entrance to the day!  Ahh, rainy day weddings – you know it just means the couple will have lots of beautiful babies, right?!  Their wedding planner, Hannah of Southern Protocol, burst into action and came to the rescue, moving the entire ceremony to the opposite side of the building in record time!  And while I’m on the topic of Hannah, let’s just take a second to give her a round of applause for the STUNNING design she came up with for this wedding, which was a COMPLETE SURPRISE to Tate and Davis!  And let’s be honest, Charleston Stems never disappoints with their gorgeous florals either!!!  Ahh, it’s like a dream right?!  Enjoy some of our favorite images from the day!
