There are just so many things about SJ and Andrew’s wedding that made me incredibly happy. First of all, though I’ve worked with many of my fellow Paladins for their weddings, this was the first I’ve photographed that actually took place at Furman, in our university’s beautiful Daniel Chapel. Many of the lovely people who came to celebrate SJ and Andrew’s union were classmates of mine… and in addition to SJ and Andrew, two other HWP couples were in attendance! It’s such a treat for me to get to see my former brides and grooms after their big day, and even more so when they’re coming together to celebrate a new couple tying the knot – so of course I had to gather everyone up for a photo!
Other reasons to love this wedding include: Furman purple; SJ’s dad’s reaction to seeing her in her gown; Andrew’s face when he saw his beautiful bride; a sword arch exit with lavender that got everywhere (but smelled amazing!); the couple cutting their cake with Andrew’s saber; and finally, two words: BRUNCH RECEPTION. I took way more food photos than I normally do because I love brunch.
