Boone Hall Plantation Wedding | Stephen & Chandler
You may remember these two from their killer engagement session at the Dupont waterfalls! We quickly fell for Stephen & Chandler’s awesome personalities but we also loved having them both in front of our cameras and couldn’t wait for their wedding day to come!
Stephen & Chandler were married on an overcast day in March, at the beautiful Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, SC. Although it was a chilly afternoon, the rain held off the entire day and Stephen & Chandler got to tie the knot outside on the gorgeous grounds. If you’ve never visited Boone Hall for yourself, you’re missing out on one of the prettiest settings, ever. The atmosphere of this place is magical! Once you enter the gates and wander down the long, straight pathway that’s covered with historical trees overhead, you begin to feel like you’re somewhere truly special.
These two started their day off at a nearby home, owned by a close family friend. They spent their morning getting ready there and we took advantage of the home’s gorgeous natural light that poured in through the big southern blinds. Once everyone was ready, the couple rode separately to Boone Hall to meet each other down the aisle. The wind blew through the mossy trees, through the gorgeous table linens, and added to the fairytale feeling that was floating in the air. Once Stephen & Chandler saw each other for the first time, neither of them could stop smiling. We loved hearing their sweet vows to one another and couldn’t help but feel giddy in the presence of this adorable couple.
After we finished up some fun bridal party and family photos, we quickly stole the couple away for some romantic one-on-one photos beneath the epic (and iconic) trees. We loved that despite the cold (and it was pretty cold by this point), that this couple was so willing to explore all around these grounds with us! We’re so grateful for not only their excitement, but also for their trust throughout the whole day. Because of that, we were able to capture some AH-MAZING photos for their memory books! We spent some time out in front of Boone Hall but then continued on roaming towards the back of the plantation. We couldn’t stop seeing beautiful spots to photograph Stephen & Chandler in, and luckily they didn’t seem to mind too much!
We finished up and made our way to the reception which was held under a huge white tent. Everyone greeted the couple and continued huddling around the heaters that were placed all around the dance floor. Although the chilly wind continued to blow through the reception, the party didn’t stop and everyone was dining and dancing in celebration of the newlyweds. Stephen & Chandler were so sweet to witness throughout the night! They stayed close to each other, danced countless songs together, and couldn’t take their eyes off one another. We absolutely loved getting to capture the start of their love story together and cannot wait to see where God leads these two in the future.
Stephen & Chandler, we loved photographing our two new friends tie the knot and are so happy to have been a part of your special day! You guys are an awesome couple and we know God has big plans for both of you!!
