From the very first time I spoke with Natalie about her wedding day vision, I knew their wedding day was going to be oh-so-good and uniquely “them”. I clearly remember Natalie telling me that she loved sunflowers and that they would play a prominent role in their wedding day design… and, to be honest, that’s not a very common flower for weddings here in Charleston, so I knew their wedding design was going to be something new + fun for me to photograph!! I seriously get so excited when my clients do something a little different… I love seeing my clients’ personalities shine through all of their details!!
From Natalie’s stunning custom Jodi Moylan raw silk gown, her beautiful floral crown, the two piece bridesmaid dresses, wildflower bouquets, funky boutonnieres, and amazing green velvet lounge couches… every detail was perfection. Natalie + Matthew opted to forego the First Look and stick with the traditional reveal. The look on Matthew’s face when he first saw Natalie coming down the steps towards him was priceless. After their ceremony, which was officiated by Matthew’s brother, we finished up group photos and then spent some time doing portraits nearby. After being announced into their reception, they shared their first dance as husband + wife, then joined their guests inside the Gadsden House for a seated dinner.
After dinner, Natalie’s family released balloons in memory of Natalie’s older sister, Katelynn, who would have turned 31 years old that day. It was such a sweet moment to honor her memory before the party got started. The dance floor was packed all night and it was so fun to see Natalie + Matthew surrounded by so much love + support. It’s a wedding I’ll always remember because of all of the sweet traditions + personal details that were such a big part of the overall day. Here are some of my favorites from Natalie + Matthew’s gorgeous Gadsden House wedding…
