I don't dance, But here I am
Spinning you round and round in circles
It Ain't my style, but I don't care
I'd do anything with you anywhere
Guess you got me in the palm of your hand
Cause, I don't dance
-'I Don't Dance' by Lee Brice
The beach will always be a destination - for travelers, for families and for lovers. At the beach, time moves slower, food tastes sweeter, and memories last a lifetime. It's no wonder so many of my brides and grooms come to the beach to celebrate their union.
Kelly and Brent traveled from North Carolina to be married on the beach, surrounded by their closest family and friends on a gorgeous day in May. Kelly is one of the most genuine and sweetest people I have ever met and it was so obvious that she is loved dearly by her family and friends. All her sweet girlfriends kept dropping by the hotel room to say hello and catch a glimpse of her before the ceremony. Her adorable niece and nephew stole the show with their playful cuteness. But nothing could compare to the gorgeous bride in her striking Kelly Faetanini dress. I'm sure Brent thought the same as he watch Kelly walk down the beach towards him. There was nothing but smiles.
After their ceremony, Kelly and Brent boarded the Fate sailboat for a dreamy sunset cruise on Charleston Harbor. The sailboat cruise was so special for them because it is the same boat they sailed on the weekend they were engaged in Charleston! This classy couple rocked all of their portraits on the boat and made my job effortless.
The rest of the evening was spent laughing, dancing and making memories with all those who came to celebrate with the bride and groom in Charleston. I was so happy to be a part of this wonderful celebration. Thank you Kelly and Brent!! :)
Special thanks to my second photographer Jen Baltgalvis for all of her hard work!
