When Tia approached me about photographing her wedding, I was really excited. She teaches at my son’s school, and is in general a very kind and warm person. Their wedding, on December 29, 2018, guaranteed an excellent start to the new year for them!
Their ceremony took place at First Baptist Church in Mt. Pleasant, and although there were clouds predicted for the day, they were blessed with sunshine and nice temperatures! You never know what you will get in Charleston in the “winter!”
After a beautiful ceremony where they surprised guests with a slideshow of their lives (paralleled as kids, then together as a couple), they headed to the Charleston Yacht Club for their reception.
A few highlights from the night? A hot chocolate bar on the bottom deck with views of the yachts at sunset. Nathan’s family – his entire extended family – surprised the couple with a fun flash dance. (Super impressed with everyone’s moves, I gotta say.) The bouquet toss required a re-do because the initial toss may have landed in one of the light fixtures! (Not to worry, a retrieval occurred without issue.) And the dancing, well, it was pretty spectacular; there were far more people on the dance floor then sitting at the tables. That is always the mark of a successful reception, in my eyes!
I’m going to post a few photos from the wedding below, but really, you’ll probably get a better idea by watching this slideshow I put together of their big day. It was lovely, and I know that their future together will be, too!
