Megan and Patrick’s wedding was lovingly different in oh so many ways. For starters they decided to to tie the knot on a beautiful September Thursday evening. They choose McMinnamin’s Edgefield because not only was it beautiful they loved the historical significance of the place. When I met up with them on the big day their rooms were not ready, so they were having a laid back lunch with friends in the pub together. Not ones for lots of traditions the whole seeing each other before the wedding thing took a back seat to having a nice time with friends & family. Spending the day with these two was pretty much awesome.
Every little detail was just how Megan wanted, “perfectly imperfect”. I think she said that about the bows on the flowers, but I thought it was so fitting for the day. If the rooms were ready late, so great time for a lunch with friends. That is just how the day went, these two were there to have a lovely event, and they did.
I could go on, and on about great Megan & Patrick were, and how fun their day was, but really lets get to the photos! I think they will speak for them selves.
Megan had such great details. From her beautiful peach colored dress, to the amazing pearls made by a friend, it was all unique and elegant.
Megan also has some awesome friends who hooked up the hair and make up.
Patrick was also had some pretty cool details. I dug the boating shoes.
Patrick was also cool and calm, these two were the most laid back couple.
The whole energy in Megan’s room was so calm but full of joy, I just love her mom & grandma’s face seeing her all dressed up. These women are all soo wonderful, I loved seeing their bond.
this might be my favorite photo of Megan from the entire day, I just love her smile here.
our first look set up was fun, I could tell these two were happy to be back together and start the celebration.
We did a lot of laughing during our time together.
I loved shooting them together, they were so sweet and chill.
Edgefield was also a great place to shoot, even the garden shed was a lovely backdrop.
This image while it was suppose to be romantic completely cracks me up. The thing is when even I asked Megan & Patrick to get “nose to nose” they would start laughing, I had no idea why, well finally they told me. While I was trying to be romantic, apparently if their faces were that close it was all blurry. Duh, well from then on I just asked them to “get blurry”!
I love all the colors of the day, fresh and beautiful.
We had a lot of laughter can you tell.
Once were done with the portraits we made our way to the most important part of the day, the ceremony.
The whole ceremony was beautiful and moving. Their officiant (and a personal friend of mine) Sally did a wonderful job. I have to admit even I got a little teary. It was short, sweet and incredibly moving.
While the happy couple enjoyed their party and the delicious spread I had a little fun with their rings. Like I said Edgefield is an amazing place to shoot.
The best part of the reception though really had to be the dancing. Megan, Patrick and their friends were so fun! I could do an entire post of just dancing photos!
Like I said, fun fun folks.
and one last photo of our happy couple. We got a chance to take a little walk at sunset.
