Michelle and Austin hosted a colorful spring wedding at the Gadsden House this April. After their scenic downtown Charleston and Folly Beach engagement photos, I couldn’t wait to see what they had in store for their wedding day. I absolutely loved the colorful flowers, yellow bridesmaids dresses, and gorgeous springtime tablescapes they chose! It was definitely giving whimsical fairytale vibes! (also, who am I? Did I just use that phrase?)
After she was buttoned into her gown, Michelle shared the sweetest first look with her bridesmaids. She absolutely loved twirling in her beautiful gown and we got so many twirling photos throughout the day! To make these pre-ceremony moments even better, a lady bug came in on Michelle’s bouquet and it accompanied her until the end of the ceremony, getting a front row seat – someone special definitely wanted to make sure they didn’t miss a thing!
After bridal portraits at Hampton Park and groom portraits at Theodora Park, Michelle and Austin met back at the Gadsden House for their beautiful spring ceremony. It was so touching to see Austin’s beaming grin as he saw his bride for the first time walking down the aisle. During the ceremony, the bride and groom had a handfasting ceremony – but not before their very own secret handshake!
Close family and friends joined Michelle and Austin to celebrated their marriage with great food, drink, and dancing under the stars. Such a fun crowd to celebrate the newlyweds! When the reception came to a close, the bride and groom ran through a tunnel of sparklers and hopped into the Rolls Royce waiting to whisk them away to the after party.
Michelle and Austin have been such a joy to photograph and I’m so glad they chose me to be a part of their wedding at the Gadsden House. The two of them are such genuine and fun people and I will look back on this day with fond memories. Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!
