Everything happens for a reason. I truly believe that. When COVID hit this spring, it was hard to find a silver lining amidst the chaos. Then I got a phone call from Jessica. Jessica had originally inquired with me back in 2019 when she was first planning her April 2020 wedding. Unfortunately, I was already booked for her day and referred her out to another photographer here in town. Then, the pandemic forced Jessica + DJ to postpone their wedding to September 2020 – and every single one of their vendors was available for their new date… except their photographer. Jessica called me immediately and guess what?! I was available for her new date!! It all worked out perfectly and I’m so thankful that I was able to document Jessica + DJ’s gorgeous wedding day at Cypress Trees Plantation.
If you’ve never been to Cypress Trees, you are missing out! It is a true hidden gem and just the most bucolic, relaxing, beautiful place nestled on Store Creek in Edisto. Jessica’s older sister actually got married there 16 years ago – and at that time, Jessica predicted that someday she would get married there too. And she did!! We started the day with a sweet First Look under the oaks, followed by bride + groom portraits around the property. I could have easily shot there for hours!! The oaks, the Spanish Moss, the marsh… it all just so quintessentially lowcountry and so picturesque. Jessica + DJ said “I do!” surrounded by their family + friends, then spent the evening celebrating under the oaks, dancing the night away. At the end of the night, Jessica + DJ exited through a tunnel of rose petals. The perfect ending to an amazing day. It was such an incredible day and I’m so happy to have been there to capture it all. Here are some of my favorites from Jessica + DJ’s beautiful summer wedding at Cypress Trees Plantation…
