As wedding photographers, we get the chance to be a part of many wedding days. As we document every moment of that day, it's always interesting to find what makes each wedding unique. When we find those special things, we want to be able to share them with the rest of the world. So we hope you enjoy our new blog for this wedding... and the many more to come.
January 3, 2015 in Columbia, South Carolina, a winter wedding took place. The forecast for this day was overcast and gloomy, but for those gathered at First Presbyterian Church this day was not gloomy at all. It was a celebration. The bridesmaids shawls, Jess' white fur, the grey color scheme, and the hot chocolate were all things that made Jess and Peter's wedding unique, because it grasped the winter feel and brought it to life.
Jess and Peter were very easy to work with and even willing to let us try new things by capturing many of their wedding photos in a beautiful churchyard. Sticking together, side by side throughout the day, we saw how this couple worked as a team to bring laughter and smiles to each other... And we think you will find this quite evident in their photos.
Jess and Peter decided to have a first look and of course, it would be hard not to let this moment be one of your favorites from the day. As you can see both couples stood feet away from each other anxiously awaiting the moment Peter would turn around and they would see each other face to face. We were excited to be able to share in this intimate moment and watch Jess and Peter as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
We're going to the chapel.
And the ceremony begins.
One of my favorite photos of the day, was this moment of Jess and Peter. Jamison was able capture the genuine expression on Jess' face, during a prayer, which showed this moment to be simply beautiful.
One last thing we enjoyed watching, was how Jess and Peter took the time to greet most of the guest, if not all, present at their reception. We ended the night with a little dancing in a new rustic warehouse venue, The Hall at Senate's End.
And everyone wished Jess and Peter goodbye as they left the reception as Mr. and Mrs. Peter Mathias.
Does anyone recognize the grooms cake?
We had to step out from behind the cameras to grab a photo with this couple.
And that's the story of their day.
