When Monica told me that her wedding vision was inspired by the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, I knew immediately that this was going to be a unique wedding day. Lowcountry, chic, unique, and timeless were all words that resonated with the couple – and their planner, Ashley, created an incredible design that was absolute perfection. Even with a last minute venue change, Monica + Austin’s day couldn’t have been better. They always start their day together drinking coffee, so they asked if I’d be willing to come early for a mini photo shoot to document their last coffee date before getting married. I absolutely LOVED this!! It was so sweet to create some beautiful photos of them before their big day got under way.
With 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen standing by their side, Monica + Austin said “I do” in a beautiful waterfront ceremony officiated by Austin’s brother. We had the BEST light for portraits at Palmetto Bluff after the ceremony – and then we headed over to their reception a few miles down the road. Now let’s talk about the florals… oh my goodness, THE FLORALS!! Em Creative is just so incredibly talented. They completely transformed the event space with their floral installation. It was a showstopper.
Monica + Austin spent the evening celebrating with friends + family, dancing the night away. At the end of the night, they exited through a tunnel of sparklers – the perfect ending to their fairy tale day. Here are some of my favorites from Monica + Austin’s Palmetto Bluff wedding…
