Most of my weddings take place in Pittsburgh, but I love to travel, so traveling to photograph a destination wedding is such a treat! Courtney and Matt were married in Charleston, South Carolina (see sneak peek here) at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina. And it was such a lovely day at a gorgeous location with lots of fabulous details! I think that’s probably a run-on sentence, but my grammar falls by the wayside when I get excited about something.

Here’s the complete scoop on Megan and Zak’s wedding photography. You might want to check out my previous sneak peek as well. This was such a lovely day and it was so much fun to work with Megan and Zak. We started at her parent’s home where Megan and her bridesmaids were getting ready. I really love the design on the back of Megan’s dress. And she looked so pretty in it! And Zak surprised her with a limo for the day—what a sweet groom!
A big Congrats to Courtney and Matt, dear friends of mine who were just married in Charleston, South Carolina. They planned a gorgeous destination wedding there at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina and I so happy to have been a part of it. This sneak peek was hard to do because I had a hard time narrowing down the photos to share, but I’ll share lots more in the full blog post sometime next week.
Courtney looked absolutely stunning. I’m partial of course, but she just beamed. And she had an amazing garland of orchids and ivy to wear in lieu of a bouquet.
And Matt and his groomsmen were staying cool as they waited for the ceremony to begin on the pier over the harbor.
The pier made for an awesome aisle for Courtney and her dad to walk down. In my next post, I’ll share an image of the shoes she wore and it just baffles me to think about how she walked down the pier so gracefully in her stilettos.
Their ceremony was really sweet with nervous giggles and a fun story from Courtney’s childhood. But, what I loved most was the way they looked into one another’s eyes.
The bridal party was a fun group. And they all look so good together!
We walked back to the beach for some more photos before heading to the reception.
I also wanted to share a photo of Courtney’s bridesmaids and this one kept coming back to me because they are having so much fun in it. One of the bridesmaids felt something slide down her backside, it was a bobby pin and the photos that followed were pretty funny.
And last, but not least, here’s a portrait of the lovebirds.
Courtney and Matt, congratulations! I am so happy for you two and pray that you will be blessed beyond measure!
Almost two weeks ago, Megan and Zak said I do in a lovely ceremony at St. Mary of the Assumption. This kicks off the first wedding for my 2012 season and I couldn’t think of a nicer couple to usher in the wedding season! I know they’re back from their honeymoon and waiting patiently for this blog post, so I won’t ramble on, but get straight to the good stuff!
This is a sneak peek, so I’m jumping right in for now and will share more details later in the full blog post. They walked out into a sea of bubbles, which is very sentimental for Megan as the bubbles were given to her by her late grandmother.
We headed to Hartwood Acres, which was just a hop, skip, and jump from their church for some photos of the bride and groom.
We caught up with the bridal party for some more portraits at the Mayernick Center during the cocktail hour of their reception. I’ll share some of those photos in their full post.
Here’s a sweet moment during their first dance.
It was a lovely night and I’m looking forward to sharing more from this beautiful wedding.
Megan and Zak, congratulations and many blessings to you and your marriage! Stay posted, more to come!
