Mother Nature sure didn’t make things easy for us on Gabrielle + Cole’s wedding day! Storms threatened the area ALL DAY LONG and there were at least 3-4 heavy downpours throughout the day. Gabrielle, Cole, and their families handled it with such grace… we made the best of it and I am thrilled with what we captured!!
After a pretty strong storm swept through the area, Gabrielle + Cole shared their first look on the porch of the clubhouse. It’s always my favorite part of the day and I could immediately see the relief flow through them once they saw each other. We quickly jumped in the car and went over to Spring Island where we stumbled upon the most beautiful field of wild flowers. Gabrielle + Cole didn’t skip a beat when I asked them if they’d be willing to stand in the middle of it… ants, mud, and all. Rain continued to sprinkle as we headed back to the clubhouse, but by the time their bridal party joined us for photos, it was dry again! THANK YOU MOTHER NATURE!!
Storms threatened the area the rest of the afternoon, but we waited it out and their ceremony was GORGEOUS!! The floral arch, the flowers down the aisle, and a fun petal toss at the end… my flower-loving heart was in heaven! After the ceremony, we jumped in the car again to get some photos on the water… and while we were shooting, the skies opened! Gabrielle + Cole had the BEST attitude and rolled with it. I love love love the photo of them on the dock in the rain. So romantic!!
The rest of the night was a blur. Lots of dancing, lots of laughter, so much love. At the end of the night, Gabrielle + Cole exited through a tunnel of confetti. It was an absolutely amazing day that I’m so honored to have been a part of. Here are some of my favorites from their beautiful spring wedding at Callawassie Island…
