Outdoor Autumn wedding in Lexington, SC – Nicole & Jeremy
I love the beautiful colors that come with Autumn; but it becomes even more beautiful when love is in the air! Well, love certainly was in the air on November 5, 2011 when Nicole and Jeremy became husband and wife, at aquiet Southern venue near Lake Murray, in Lexington, South Carolina. This small intimate wedding was held at 403 North lake Events, one of the most gorgeous wedding locations in the Carolinas. Nicole and the bridesmaids prepared for the wedding upstairs at Cafe 403, which is adjacent to where the reception was held. Nicole wanted to show the natural beauty of the venue in her photographs with the girls, so we used one of the rustic buildings near the wedding site as a backdrops well as on the front porch of the cafe.Then, Jeremy and the groomsmen had some images created behind the rustic shed, away from where the guests were arriving.
The wedding ceremony was located in the spectacular garden area, well hidden behind the cafe. The ceremony incorporated the exchange of rings, as well as a sand mixing that represents two lives being joined in such a way that could never be separated again. The reception followed indoors after we created a few portraits which included family members and the wedding party. The bridesmaids and groomsmen entered the building, dancing to various upbeat songs, making way for the grand entrance of the new bride and groom. Aside from the first dances, speeches, and cake cutting, there was a new activity introduced by the DJ, that was a real hit with the guests. The bride and groom exchanged one of their shoes, so that they held one of their own shoes in one hand, and the shoe of their spouse in the other hand. The DJ began quizzing the couple as to who was the better driver, who spends the most cash, and who made the first move; it was a lot of fun for all, and didn’t even cause a fight between the newlyweds. After much dancing, laughter, and well wishes, Jeremy and Nicole exited the reception into the night through a shower of bubbles and seeds; what a night!
Congratulations Nicole and Jeremy! Thanks for letting me be a part of your wonderful wedding day!
