Please hold me close beside you
Your eyes hold all the sky
Oh, sweet creation
This day will never die, it will never die
- Peter Wolf, "Green Fields of Summer"
Those of us who have been lucky enough to live in the wonderful city of Charleston know that it is a special place. We have been charmed by the beaches, the water and the friendly laid-back southern vibe. Sara and Russ were also charmed by our unique coastal city and decided to have their destination wedding harborside at The Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina. Sara and Russ, both of their families and most of their guests journeyed to the coast for a vacation-esque wedding weekend. I love being a part of destination weddings, everyone always seems to celebrate a little harder. A Charleston vacation does that to you!
We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather most of the day, with an afternoon rainstorm barely missing us while Sara & Russ said 'I do.' After the clouds rolled on through, we were left with a gorgeous sunset over the harbor and a beautiful night sky. Sara and Russ' wedding day was full of personal touches, tears of joy, cries of laughter, unbelievable dance moves, and insane amounts of love for the happy couple. I was honored to be a part of the celebration. Thank you Sara and Russ!
Many thanks to my amazing team for the day, my second shooter Adam Chandler and my assistant Kelsey Miller. Thanks for being awesome!
