Whenever you pair a fabulous couple with impeccable taste, an amazing wedding design, and flawless execution, it’s a recipe for pure wedding goodness. Laura + Ben’s wedding was just beyond AMAZING! Laura, Ben + their fabulous planner, Justin, thought of just about every detail imaginable and it was so much fun to photograph because of that attention to detail. You all know I’m obsessed with details! Despite the sweltering Charleston summer heat, everyone was so great + so easy to work with. The families were so welcoming and the wedding party was a blast to photograph. I count myself truly lucky to have such amazing clients like Laura + Ben.
The Thomas Bennett House was the perfect venue for their elegant Southern wedding. I loved their color scheme of navy blue, white + accents of pink. The bridesmaid dresses were PERFECT and they certainly rank high up there on my list of favorite bridesmaid dresses of all time. I loved the guys’ coordinating polka dotted ties + Ben’s polka dotted bowtie. They really tied everything together. The open-air reception was stunning, with romantic cafe lighting illuminating the space throughout the evening. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone had such a great time. Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day…
I’m SO glad that they chose to do a daylight bubble “exit” during their recessional! This kind of exit photographs SO much better than night exits! Obsessed.
They also participated in the Southern tradition of burying the bourbon. Earlier this spring, Laura + her mom buried a bottle of Maker’s Mark at the Thomas Bennett House – a tradition that is supposed to bring good weather for the wedding day. On their wedding day, Laura + Ben dug it up… or at least attempted to. They couldn’t find it, but later in the evening, the two best men went back and found it! Such a fun tradition!
