Westin Poinsett Wedding

Matt and Jessica were married yesterday at St. Mary Magdalene with their reception at the Westin Poinsett. We were worried about the weather yesterday morning...but the clouds and rain cleared and it became a beautiful afternoon! Jessica and Matt made time in the busy wedding day schedule to have Main Street Trolley drop them and their wedding party off at Falls Park for a few photos between the ceremony and reception while their guests enjoyed a cocktail hour. Everything went perfectly...and we are so happy for them both!! Matt and Jessica, have a great time on your honeymoon in Hawaii.

Devereaux Wedding Greenville SC

Like last weekend, we again spent this weekend on the road. On Friday, we shot the wedding of Kim and Stephen at The Garden Retreat, just outside of Erwin, Tennessee. We are so excited about the images we got...and we'll post their photos shortly. Then on Saturday we had the pleasure of photographing Andrea and Matt's wedding in Greenville. They definitely had the quintessential Greenville wedding, and it was very obvious all the thought that was put into the details (not surprising when you consider that the bride's sister, also the matron of honor, is a wedding planner in Boston).
Andrea and Matt's ceremony was on the rock patio of the Lazy Goat (Mine and Craig's favorite restaurant in Greenville-if you have not been, it is a must!) and then all of the guests walked to Devereaux's for the reception. Later that night, everyone was invited back to their house for an informal BBQ.
Andrea and Matt were completely focused on leaving the smallest environmental footprint possible from their wedding. To do this they used local vendors (ceremony music provided by the very talented Tim White and B & R Events coordinated the reception), recycled stationary, organic ingredients & food, and the flowers for the bouquets and decoration were purchased that morning from the farmer's market!
We so admire the way that they were conscious about their environmental impact. We always strive to be the same and we now have found the world's first "green" wedding album. This album line features 100% post-consumer recycled paper, environmentally sensitive cover materials like hemp, recycled kraft paper, and lotka paper, the entire process is powered by green E-Certified windpower, and 5% of the proceeds go to reforesting and to purchase carbon credits. We are soooooo excited about these books!
