Callie + Gates’ spring wedding celebration was definitely a highlight of 2023. From the very first time I spoke with Callie, I knew we were the PERFECT match – and it really made the entire process so special. From their engagement on Folly Beach, to her bridal portrait session, and finally – their wedding day… this journey with Callie + Gates was so amazing. I am so incredibly lucky to work with such fabulous couples and their families.
The day started with a sweet first look out on IOP, where everyone had spent the morning getting ready. Callie + Gates’ beloved dog, Tito, was also on hand for the first look and I absolutely loved his custom bandana that he wore to celebrate the occasion. After their first look and a few portraits on IOP, everyone headed downtown for their beautiful ceremony at Bethel Presbyterian – and then crossed the Ashley River to party all night at the Country Club of Charleston. The weather was absolutely incredible and the sunset that night was pure perfection. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate Callie + Gates!
I am truly blessed to be living this life as a Charleston wedding photographer and to bear witness to love several weekends each year. Callie + Gates, thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to capture this amazing celebration for you and your families!! Cheers!!
