Wow! What more can I say about this beautiful Charleston, South Carolina wedding. Adam and Christi were married at Cottage on the Creek, a beautiful southern coastal venue overlooking the infamous Shem Creek next to Red's Ice House. With a destination wedding in the works, Christi and Adam planned a visit to Charleston, South Carolina back in the Fall. As you can imagine, when they asked me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond thrilled!
On the wedding day, Christi and her six gorgeous bridesmaids got ready at a house on Isle of Palms near Wild Dunes. Christi got into her wedding dress with the help of her mom and two sisters while the bridesmaids and flower girls waited in anticipation to see the bride in her wedding dress for the first time. When Christi entered the room, there wasn't a dry eye! She truly looked like an angel.
Adam and the groomsmen got ready in Mt. Pleasant at a house near the wedding venue. Knowing how much guys love taking photographs, we decided to have a little fun and go to Red's Icehouse for one last toast before the 5:00 PM, ceremony start time. As we were leaving, the guys had a little fun with Adam as he was placed into handcuffs.
As we walked back to Cottage on the Creek, the girls were arriving by limo. The wedding planner, Heather of Confetti of Charleston, got everyone into place as Michael with Wedding Music Charleston played the guitar. As Christi's dad walked her down the isle to Adam, her second father was waiting at the alter to officiate the marriage.
Just after the ceremony, the limo took myself and the wedding party over to Riverfront Park for photographs. Afterwards, we returned to Cottage on the Creek for their delicious shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese, chicken, and more before cutting the cake and a few toasts to the newlyweds. Christi and Adam enjoyed the beautiful sunset together at top of the third floor open deck before heading back down to dance the night away with Dj Michael, family, and friends.
Their perfect wedding day came to an end as they made their exit through sparklers to start their life together with a honeymoon in Mexico.
