Wyche Pavilion | Claire and Steve

Wow, what a weekend... 3 weddings in 3 days and each of them turned out beautiful! You know you've shot a great wedding while you're going through prepping the images and they bring you to tears. That's exactly what happened to us all week long as we went though the thousands of images we shot over the course of the weekend. The moments, the laughter, the tears... all came rushing back to us and that's truly what we try and capture. So that when our clients look back at their wedding images 20 years from now, they'll be brought back to those feelings. We are so blessed to do what we do!!
Claire and Steve chose to come to Greenville all the way from Indiana and I think it was a great decision. Their family and friends loved downtown Greenville and all it has to offer. What a great city for a wedding! And to show off the downtown area, they had their reception at the beautiful Wyche Pavilion - which I'm kinda partial to since that's where Craig and I were married 4 short years ago! Here's a few of our favorites from the day...






I am a sucker for bird cage veils!!! They make such amazing shots!

Claire's dad had the whole place in tears, including us (yes, I know... what's new about that!!), as he talked about how special Claire is.

    Craig and Lindsey,
    What a weekend! Steven and Claire picked the perfect spot for their wedding. You could feel the love and support for them from all of our family and friends that were lucky enough to travel and witness their ceremony and take part in their reception. The constant smiles on their faces is proof that they were blessed by all. Both of you are truly remarkable people. From when we first met last year for their engagement pictures to the wedding, you were a part of it all! It isn't often that you find someone who takes such special care of those we love on their special day and you both certainly did just that. Steve and I can't thank you enough for the way you cared for our son and his new bride. We hope to see you in the future and wish you both the best. And thanks again for the ride back to the hotel! We really appreciated your going out of your way. We still can't figure out how you put all your stuff in the car and still had room for us but guess you have been doing this a while and have it down! Take care.
    Patti and Steve Ludwig

  9. Birdcage veils make me swooooooon! The second shot of her adjusting the veil looks like it is straight out of a magazine from the 40s. The shot of her looking at her dad in tears made me cry. Beautiful work as always, friends!

    What an absolutely beautiful wedding! Seeing the love Steven and Claire share touched many hearts and brought tears to our eyes. But to have the ability to actually capture the essence of that love in their photographs is truly remarkable!

  15. I have to say that these pictures are great. Really captured so many public and intimate moments. Having a photographer with a great eye for pictures is so important because with moments like these, you never get a do-over.
