Married! Brooke + Jonathan

**CLICK HERE to see Brooke and Jonathan’s slideshow!

If we had to describe the perfect day for a wedding, this would have been it.  We drove to Charleston, South Carolina for Brooke and Jonathan’s November wedding, and were rewarded with sunshine and sweet breezes!

Brooke and Jonathan chose Lowndes Grove Plantation to host their celebration.  Everyone hung out all day at the plantation, keeping the mood relaxed and happy.  We really couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful experience with one of the happiest couples we’ve ever had the pleasure to know!

Guys only take, hmmm, 5 minutes to get ready?  So they passed the morning on the side lawn playing baseball.

The only rule: you can’t put down your beer.

Brooke and her mom:

Brooke is one of those naturally expressive people who seems to always be making some kind of adorable face.  I love this series as she sees herself in the mirror, in her gown, for the first time.

Timeless Designs created all of the floral arrangements.

Brooke and Jonathan laid out a book of photographs throughout Charleston’s history, and their guests left messages in the pages.  We love this idea, because you can never have too many coffee table books!

The sun was just hitting the horizon when we pulled together all 20 bridesmaids and groomsmen for a group photo.  It was so obvious that every single one of these men and women had played an integral role in Brooke and Jonathan’s lives.  There is nothing more special than being surrounded by people who know you so well, and love you still!  :)

Brooke and Jonathan had expected to have a white tent, but they were THRILLED to get a clear-top tent instead!  Let me tell you, these tents are SO wonderful — especially on a clear night like this one, with the blue sky glowing through the roof of the tent.

Brooke’s sister sang during her first dance with their dad.  Her voice is phenomenal.  It was as if Edith Piaf herself had come back to serenade us with La Vie En Rose.

We heard through the grapevine that Brooke and Jonathan’s first kiss was under a disco ball.  So it only seemed appropriate to snag this miniature disco ball for a photo with their rings.

Caramel Apple anyone?  How how ’bout some buttery popcorn?  Sweet treats were waiting for guests as the evening came to an end.  YUM!

Dance party! Two 3 Ways played James Taylor, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Sublime… can you tell everyone had fun?

End of the night… The smiles on Brooke and Jonathan’s faces say it all!

Brooke and Jonathan, we are SO HAPPY that you chose us to photograph your wedding! We can’t imagine having spent that weekend with anyone else. We absolutely adore you two, and we can’t wait to hang out again!
