March 7, 2016
Taylor + Joe’s wedding day was the PERFECT way to kick off the official start of the 2016 wedding season! I absolutely love shooting at the William Aiken House in downtown Charleston and Mother Nature was pretty much showing off for us, giving us nothing but blue skies and sunshine on their big day. Taylor looked absolutely stunning in her elegant Badgley Mischka gown with intricate beaded back. It was a showstopper, for sure! Joe looked so classic + dapper in his black tuxedo. These two looked like they could’ve stepped right out of a bridal magazine! I’m serious! They are such an amazing couple, both inside + out. I just LOVED spending the day with them!
After their First Look, we were joined by their bridal party for photos and it was plain to see just how loved and supported Taylor and Joe are. It was so much fun, watching them celebrate with their friends + family throughout the day. This is why I LOVE what I do! Taylor surprised Joe by having their wedding hashtag #jt2016experience posted on the marquee outside of the American Theatre, which is right next door to the William Aiken House. So, of course, we had to stop traffic and take some photos of them in the middle of King Street in front of their sign!
Their ceremony was held outside beneath the pergola and it was equal parts beautiful, unique, and memorable. I love how they mixed it up by having the bridesmaids + groomsmen line both sides of the altar, instead of the traditional arrangement of girls on the left/guys on the right. It was really fun and unique. I love it when clients do things “their way” instead of adhering to old, silly traditions. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the lawn before heading inside for a seated dinner. After dinner, everyone headed back outside to the dance floor to watch Taylor + Joe’s First Dance together… and then the dancefloor was packed the rest of the night! It was a beautiful way to kick off the start of a very busy wedding season and I can’t imagine spending it with anyone else. Here are some of my favorites from Taylor + Joe’s classic William Aiken House wedding…
