We might have picked the coldest night of fall to shoot, but it was also peak fall weekend, and the leaves were wondrous. Matthew and Emily are getting married at the Filmore in the Music Factory this fall, and I’m so thrilled to be their photographer.
Enjoy these two, they were so wonderful to work with.
Note: This is Part 1 of Lindsay and Kevin’s wedding weekend. To see the actual wedding at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, click here.
So, where do I start? Wow! I mean… look above… yep.
I met Lindsay about five years ago. She was one of the managers that I worked with at Anthropologie. Never would I have dreamed that years later I would be shooting her magical weekend at “The Inn at Palmetto Bluff.” When she wrote me and told me that they wanted to book me, I was extremely excited. We all sat down and Skyped together. (They live in Seattle, but are real-life Carolinians.) I immediately knew this weekend would be so incredible.
Their story in a nut shell is that Lindsay caught Kevin’s eye when she was working at a deli that he went to every day across the street from his work. He finally got the nerve to ask her out… and the rest is pretty much sweetness.
So to start the weekend off right, I showed up at the venue that they had booked (The Inn at Palmetto Bluff) and my assistant and I pretty much drove around with our jaws dropped. The Inn at Palmetto Bluff is UN-FREAKIN-REAL! So, so so magical.
Back in the winter, Lindsay and Kevin planned a trip to Charlotte (I am a wedding photographer in Charlotte, NC) where I was supposed to do an engagement session. Well… their time was limited and they ended up not being able to do it. Thankfully, it worked out so that I could take a few portraits of them after their rehearsal leading up to their rehearsal dinner.
Their outfits were to die for, their smiles and laughs made this short session a breeze… oh, and the trees… goodness.
Their rehearsal dinner was also on the property of their venue, and they had a super fun, sassy southern dinner. Completely different than their wedding day.
So, here is the first part of an incredible weekend. Enjoy!
