Lindsay + Colin are some of my very favorite humans EVER and their wedding day was one that I would gladly shoot over and over again for the rest of my life.  Seriously.  You know when you just click with some people?  Lindsay + Colin are those people.  And I am forever grateful that they chose me to document their amazing wedding day.

They decided to get married at her childhood home, a beautiful spot on the water on James Island.  The first time I set foot on their property, I immediately understood why Lauren wanted to get married here.  Their property is STUNNING and the huge live oak in their backyard was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony.

It was very important to Lindsay + Colin that their wedding day was effortless and relaxed.  Their naturally cool + calm demeanors were reflected in the timeline of their day.  We gave them plenty of time for photos with their friends + family, while also making sure there was time for them to breathe and just “be”.  To take it all in together.  Watching them embrace the day and focus on their friends + families was such a joy.  They made the day theirs – something I wish all of my clients would do.  No fanfare, no fuss.  Just a kickass party with the people that matter the most to them!

After a sweet ceremony officiated by Lindsay’s brother, they spent the rest of the evening on the dance floor together and let me tell you… it was one of the best dance parties I have EVER witnessed!  At one point in the night, it started raining – and everyone just embraced it, dancing on the alfresco dance floor while raindrops fell around them.  It is weddings like these that remind me how lucky I am to do what I do and how lucky I am to witness true love.  Lindsay + Colin, you guys are literally the BEST and I can’t wait to follow your journey together.  Here’s to years and years of belly laughs and epic dance moves!
