We Love October weddings in Charleston and we love photographing them at The Mills House; it is centrally located in the middle of downtown blocks in each direction to our favorite downtown backdrops. We have photographed many weddings at The Mills House but these are special for several reasons.
First, we had such a great connection with Kristen and Robb getting to know them and from the start we knew it was going to be a fun and festive party. They lived in West Ashley before heading South to Florida and they were excited to showcase the Queen City in their wedding photos and the colors and textures of Charleston did not disappoint. In addition, one month earlier looking at the radar we weren’t sure there would be anything left to photograph or if the Mills House rooftop ceremony would end up as a beach wedding. Thankfully Hurricane Matthew sparred us…and the celebration was still a GO.
From the start it was a pleasure being part of the day and we LOVE the artistic chaos of the getting ready photos, trying to capture the best angle of Robb trying to hold back the tears, the perfect light for portraits downtown and the salt shaker microphone on the dancefloor. To give you an idea of the cast of characters at the wedding, the guest with the roller skates disappears before each of the friends wedding receptions and changes into a planned outfit-notice the glitter gun-HA! We hope you enjoy the pictures and story as much as we did photographing them all day. Thank you to Kristen and Robb for welcoming our team and making us feel like family. We are still going to see if we can make the paddleboard with your suit and wedding dress happen next time we are in South Florida.
Thank you to Alicia from the Mills House for making the day beautiful…we had a great time working with you and your team the The Mills House and The newly renovated Barbadoes Room. We are looking forward to our next wedding together.
