Thomas Bennett House Wedding
It is always a treat to see former clients and their families at weddings we shoot. In this case I shot Eric’s sister, Alyson’s, wedding in Austin almost 4 years ago. Alyson and Craig now have two adorable daughters that I got to meet at the wedding. Krissy & Eric are living in Florida at the moment but wanted to have a destination wedding and loved the idea of getting married in a town they had visited before that they loved. Krissy contacted us almost a year ago and reserved her venue, the Thomas Bennett house in Charleston, South Carolina, based on our availability. The house is more of a historic mansion located centrally in downtown Charleston.The rooms were a perfect backdrop to the girls getting ready as well as some bridal portraits before the ceremony and the lawn was beautifully manicured for spring for a tented reception. Their ceremony was at the Johannes Lutheran Church where they did a sword arch exit with all of Eric’s Navy friends. We took portraits at Battery Park so we get a few photos with the ocean water and the gorgeous moss covered trees that South Carolina is known for. There is something so beautiful about the way the light shines in South Carolina, the light is the perfect amount of soft and warm. The reception was full of laughter and dancing which also continued on into their after party. We’re so glad that we could make it out to Charleston for a fun and beautiful destination wedding.
