Shannon headed just north of Charleston to gorgeous Mount Pleasant for a lovely Boone Hall Plantation wedding, and we’re elated to share our favorite moments with you today! Boone Hall is one of Charleston’s most iconic and in-demand wedding venues and our photographers jump at the opportunity to capture events among the live oaks and deeply historic grounds. Marissa and Brett’s wedding day featured the best that Boone Hall has to offer, from a lovely ceremony beneath the live oaks to an intimate and romantic reception at the Cotton Dock on Horlback Creek. Shannon caught up with Marissa as she was putting the finishing touches on her bridal ensemble. Her gorgeous ballgown featured a lace bodice and lace patterning on the skirt complimented perfectly by a silver beaded belt. Brett looked dashing in his dark blue suit and light grey tie.
The live oaks branched overhead as the duo exchanged their vows with bits of sunlight falling in behind them. After a few moments with the flowergirls (who were SO adorable!) and the bridesmaids, Shannon took Marissa and Brett away for some gorgeous newlywed portraits. The famous avenue of oaks was the perfect backdrop as the woven branches and spanish moss created a timeless atmosphere perfect for the romantic feel of the day. And we even got the opportunity to see the playful side of our duo as Brett dipped Marissa for a sweet kiss. We love fun couples and these two were a blast!
The Cotton Dock already features waterfront views and a deeply southern ambiance, but the decor for the reception really transformed the space. The dark polished wood of the tables coupled with candlelight was absolutely gorgeous and the exposed wood walls and brick fireplaces were complimented beautifully by the white linens and soft pink floral centerpieces. The entire effect was breathtaking. The newlyweds entered with incredible energy, eager to get the party started and they danced with their family and friends through the night. They were treated to a sparkler exit as they headed out to the waiting getaway car, sharing one last kiss before departing to take on the night!
Thank you both so much for allowing us to share in the fun and beauty of your wedding day. You two were so wonderful to be around and we wish you nothing but the best in the future. Congratulations again.
