I was so excited about Meredith and Matt’s wedding for a couple of reasons. The first one reason is that I’d known Meredith for years before I became her wedding photographer. The second reason is because we had such a great time with them during their engagement session and I knew the bride and groom portrait time would be great! And I must mention that I really like her name. 🙂 Meredith’s details were gorgeous and she and the bridesmaids looked perfect.
Even though it rained during the afternoon, the skies cleared before the ceremony and we were even treated to a rainbow right as the ceremony began! The wedding party processed down the aisle to Somewhere Over the Rainbow so this was even more magical! The couple made sure to include Matthew’s son, Michael, as a big part of their special day. Meredith gave Michael a very special gift before the ceremony that he was able to wear for the rest of the day. One of my favorite photos from the reception is Meredith, Matthew and Michael dancing together as a new family.
The venue has a gorgeous view of the Congaree River, the Gervais Street Bridge and even the Columbia skyline that we were able to use as a backdrop for the portraits. Meredith and Matthew fit together perfectly. You can see how happy they are in the moments we captured of just the two of them after the ceremony.
Everyone had a great time during the reception. We enjoyed a special treat when the Matron of Honor took the microphone and serenaded us while everyone danced. They ended the night with a sparkler exit and a few romantic night shots before heading off to get ready for their honeymoon in Jamaica!
Meredith & Matt-Thank you so much for allowing us to capture your perfect wedding day! We wish you many years of happiness! XOXO-Meredith
