Shannon recently had the privilege of photographing a lovely downtown Charleston elopement and we’re thrilled to share some of our favorite moments with you today! Amy and Jeremy met through mutual friends and after a few dinners, and a Dave Matthews Band concert, they built a life together capped by a proposal on the Love Lock Bridge in Paris and a decision to elope in Charleston! Elopements are great opportunities for couples to select personal, intimate venues that reflect their personalities and interests. Amy and Jeremy wanted something classic and beautiful for their elopement and visited many gorgeous gardens and similar venues before making their decision.
The duo got ready at the Planters Inn, one of Charleston’s most luxurious hotels. We love Amy’s cotton and lace dress complimented by powder blue heels and a lovely white and blue bouquet. Jeremy’s no slouch himself in a stylish grey tweed vest and dark grey trousers with a boutonniere to match the bridal colors. Their courtyard first look was absolutely sweet – just look at the emotion on Jeremy’s face. It’s a moment they will remember forever. After a private ceremony at the Circular Congregational Church, the duo went outside for a few newlywed portraits, including a dip that we don’t see very often! They trekked through one of Charleston’s beautiful cemeteries, with azaleas in full bloom adding a pop of pink to the overcast day. Down side streets, in front of beautifully textured walls and framed by some of Charleston’s iconic windows and archways, Amy and Jeremy made their elopement their own and gave us so many beautiful memories to look back on!
Thank you both for allowing us to share in this intimate and beautiful day with you and we wish you nothing but the best as you return home to start your lives together. Congratulations again!
