Carrie started out her wedding day at her hotel room in downtown Greenville, SC, where she and her bridesmaids had their hair and makeup taken care of at the same time! Pretty cool to witness such efficiency, especially on a day that can many times be so easily scattered and hectic. A few hours later I left Miranda to continue to photograph the girls, while I headed up the road to The Cliffs At Glassy Chapel, where I was to meet Charles and the guys. What can I say, every time I go to the chapel, which is situated at the top of a mountain that overlooks the beautiful Upstate of South Carolina, I am refreshed with the spectacular view. Charles and Carrie chose a wonderful place to exchange their vows; it is a place that echoes sacredness and intimacy that is very fitting for a wedding ceremony.
After the wedding, we had some time to kill, so Carrie requested that we take some photography near downtown Greenville. So at her recommendation, we went to the Rock Quarry Garden and Falls Park to create some romantic images of just the bride and groom, and create a few more of the entire wedding party. A little while later, we all joined their guests at the reception held at the Wyche Pavilion, located just behind Larkin’s on The River. This beautiful venue is a perfect fit for someone wanting an outdoor feel, while having the rustic element of exposed brick walls, as well as the security of a roof in the event of rain. The wedding party and guest enjoyed dancing, toasts, and mingling before sending the bride and groom on their way. What a wonderful day!
Congratulations, Carrie & Charles!
