Hunter & Carson

We have really excited news to share with y’all this morning! First of all, you’re about to see a bucket list item for Tony and I because this weekend, we shot a wedding in Charleston, South Carolina! It’s definitely going to be a longer post but only because I couldn’t choose between all of the spanish moss portraits so I included a little more than usual. I’m just obsessed with those oak trees!

Second thing – Costola Photography is completely booked up for 2018 weddings! We sent out our last contract to a bride and groom this morning and we are so thankful for the 25 new #CostolaBrideAndGrooms that we have welcomes this year. We really are in awe of how amazing God has been to us and we just hope that with the remainder of this year and 2018 that we can really show his love and care through our work.

So to kick off this week, we are welcoming the newest husband and wife to the Costola team – Hunter and Carson! Tony and I flew down to Columbia, SC on Friday afternoon to drive to Lewisfield Plantation where we were staying with Hunter’s family at their stunning southern plantation home. This is where Carson chose to get ready the morning of the wedding, so you will see how beautiful it is! Their family is just the sweetest, they made us feel like we were family from the moment we walked into the door.

Because of how hot it is in Charleston right now, Hunter and Carson decided to have their first look and bride and groom portraits in the morning at Mepkin Abbey before it became 100 degrees outside. It was still in the high 80s and low 90s during portraits but you wouldn’t even know it! You could just see how happy they both were to be getting married! We even stopped at the Biggin Church Ruins on the way to Mepkin Abbey to grab a couple bridal portraits of Carson before the sun was completely over head and I’m so happy that we did that because these ruins were so beautiful! They have all of these old arches that we helped Carson up to.

For first look and bride and groom portraits, Mepkin Abbey is this gorgeous park about 15 minutes from Lewisfield Plantation. It’s on the water and the driveway to the gardens is lined with these beautiful oak trees that are completely covered in spanish moss! You know my little heart was just beaming out of my chest because it was truly a dream come true!

Our bride and groom chose to exchange vows at a beautiful little church called St. John’s Baptist Church, which was founded in 1851! The family had cookies and treats after the ceremony while we finished up family formals, and then they celebrated by throwing rice at Hunter and Carson as they left the church to head to downtown Charleston for a reception dinner at Oak Steakhouse.

A huge thank you to all of the following vendors who worked so well with us and make this weekend a dream come true!!
