My first wedding of 2020 was absolutely incredible. I had the honor of photographing Courtney + Bobby’s beautiful wedding day at the Rice Mill in downtown Charleston and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect winter day. The sun was shining, the skies were blue, and it wasn’t too cold for these Boston natives.
Courtney + Bobby met in college at UNH and they have been together for 14 years now. As the last of their friends to get married, they really wanted to do something different and chose Charleston for their destination wedding. One of my favorite moments of the day was when Courtney was getting into her dress and her beloved dog, Scout, laid down on the bed to be a part of the action. It was so sweet… and you know I’m a sucker for a Golden Retriever!
On our way to the First Look, I asked Courtney if she thought Bobby would cry when he saw her. She laughed and said “I don’t think so, no”. To all of our surprise, Bobby burst into tears when he turned around and saw Courtney for the first time. It caught Courtney off guard, for sure, and it was such a sweet moment for them to share together. It always gets me when a groom cries at the First Look. It’s what every girl hopes for!
We met up with their bridal party at the College of Charleston Cistern and I absolutely love Courtney’s bridesmaids, who all wore different shades of red + pink. They looked SO GOOD together. And those florals?! Absolutely stunning. The guys looked great in their navy suits – and the whole color palette was perfect for a waterfront winter celebration.
Surrounded by family + friends, Courtney + Bobby said “I do!” in a beautiful ceremony on the water and spent the night celebrating with their guests. These two know how to throw a party and the dancefloor was absolutely packed all night long, thanks to DJ Bryan! It was an absolute joy to serve Courtney, Bobby, and their families on such an important day in their lives. It really was the perfect start to 2020.
