Kristin and Shalon's wedding at Hidden Acres in Marion, SC was unforgettable! Kristin is one of the sweetest friends! One of the first that I made after moving to the beach. I taught with her in KidzRock and couldn't get enough of that precious personality and big laugh! I love that she wanted me to be involved with her wedding even beyond photography! From the hours sitting in front of my computer designing, to the texts about your wedding, and chats at church, I couldn't have loved walking with you any more!
Kristin and Shalon met while attending the University of South Carolina. While celebrating her roommates birthday, Kristin and Shalon clicked, and the rest is history! Kristin's sense of humor and Shalon's wit, they couldn't have found another more perfect!
Shalon popped the question during photos with his family in Spartanburg, SC by the river. Kristin said yes and the planning began!! What a treat to have your proposal documented!!!!
Kristin and Shalon are an outgoing and fun couple! They love going to football games together and hanging out with friends and family. They share my LOVE of Dr. Pepper and are beyond CUTE together!
We were outstandingly lucky to have a gorgeous engagement session at Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC. Beach, castle, trees, what more can you ask for?
The wedding day started in the cabins on the property where hair and make-up was done, the guys hung out shooting pool and the girls had a blast getting dolled up together! Kristin was surrounded with so much love from her girls and her mother! That room didn't even feel like girls getting ready for a wedding, it felt just like friends hanging out! Kristin put her gown on and you could hear the ooo's and ahh's all over the room. Not only is she the epitome of stunning, she has an unbelievable heart for serving and loving others.
Her easy going personality made the daunting weather forecast seem like nothing. Rain was coming, and a lot of it. Both Shalon and Kristin were so flexible when we changed the timeline for their first look and portraits. We were in the middle of taking groomsmen photos when the thunder and lightning got closer and we knew they wanted their first look outside. We quickly gave Shalon Kristin's gift and made the call to go ahead with the first look.
There wasn't even hesitation on their faces when we said we were doing the first look before the storm! Let me tell you, the light sprinkle and loud thunder behind us was worth it!! You can't even tell that it was storming in their photos!!! Jesus wanted to bring out all the stops for them on their day!
The storm came and went and just in time for the ceremony!!! Praise! But I never saw an ounce of concern on either of their faces!
Together, Kristin and Shalon completely compliment one another. They are always laughing and Shalon loves Kristin deeply, and quietly. They are a perfect match, and I am just bursting with joy that I got to document their first day!!
Kristin and Shalon, your day truly was magical! We had a blast and are honored to be the ones you chose to be by your side! I love you both so! I am so excited to see where the Lord takes your marriage! You started it the right way, with Him as your center. I make trips to Spartanburg all the time so we will have to meet up! Kristin, I am going to miss you dearly, but am so excited for your next chapter! :)
