It is such a pleasure to work with couples when they really know what they want! Ali and Jonathan began talking about event design and all of the paper products they were putting together for their big day on our first meeting so I knew we were setting up for a beautiful wedding! These two were so much fun and brought a very personal touch to all of their wedding decor and details. Everything from the New Mexican coffee beans in honor of the bride’s hometown to the “table numbers” that were different locations important to the couples past, they truly captured their personality in the little details of their day. The first look location was so stunningly beautiful, the images captured by AJ Dunlap stopped me in my tracks when I first got the e-mail on my phone. I mean, hello!! Here are a few peaks inside their big day!

I love all the couples I get to work with but its always fun when you get to work with friends! I’ve known MaryBeth since we worked together a few years ago and could not have been more happy than when she asked me to do the Day of Coordinating for their wedding in South Carolina. These two were probably the most laid back bride and groom ever, not even breaking a sweat when the threat of rain almost had us moving the ceremony inside. Luckily, the rain held off and the ceremony location overlooked the coastline for a stunning setting for their vows. After the ceremony everyone moved into the main ballroom for the reception which featured floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach. There was such a fun approach to the entire day, from using 3ft round balloons, photobooth props and gumballs as the centerpieces to a puzzle guest book and flowers in colors that popped, they choose details that let their personalities shine through.
You two, I cannot begin to describe how much I loved being a part for your day, it was heartfelt, beautiful, and so full of love. Take a look below for the beautiful photos from the talented Discover Love Studios.
These two photos are one of my favorite moments captured from the day, her first look with her dad and her two nieces looking out the doors while it happened! Cannot handle the sweetness!!
