Sarah and Tyler’s wedding was full of personal touches with a fun and relaxed but elegant vibe, a true reflection of who they are. They were married on what would have been Sarah’s grandparent’s 58th wedding anniversary. Her grandfather passed away two years before, so it was a great way to honor him. The Bridesmaids made their own bouquets from fresh, naturally cut flowers. I loved the element of surprise and creativity this brought to the day. The quilts around the reception area were made by Sarah’s great grandmothers, mom and sister-in-law. Together Sarah and her Mother took on a few hand made projects including the fabric garland that hung in the top of the tent, the goodies in the welcome bag and the jams and jellies that were given to the guests; which were all made with fruits gathered locally or on family farms. She and her Dad worked together to design the save-the-date and wedding invitations… and I think it all came together beautifully!

I love small, intimate weddings for so many reasons. One of them is the closeness and relaxed vibe that permeates these kinds of celebrations. Christina and Max are two of the sweetest most down to earth people. After we met for a cup of coffee downtown, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding. Charleston was the first place they travelled together and the reason they decided to marry on Folly Beach.
