NICHOLAS AND DANIEL

WHAT A WEEKEND.

DANIEL AND NICHOLAS HAVE GOT SOMETHING SPECIAL; THAT MUCH IS CLEAR. THIS OCTOBER, THEY TRAVELED WITH THEIR CLOSEST FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO FOXFIRE MOUNTAIN HOUSE (PROBABLY MY FAVORITE WEDDING VENUE I’VE PHOTOGRAPHED YET) IN UPSTATE NEW YORK TO CELEBRATE THEIR MARRIAGE. I FEEL SO LUCKY THAT THEY CHOSE ME TO DOCUMENT THE WHOLE SHEBANG.

THE EMOTION AND LOVE THAT FLEW BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THESE TWO ON THEIR WEDDING DAY WAS INCREDIBLE. I THINK WE ALL COULD FEEL IT. I DON’T HAVE TO SAY MUCH ABOUT THE BEAUTY AND FEELING OF THEIR DAY; YOU CAN SEE IT FOR YOURSELF IN THE IMAGES BELOW…

GRANT AND GRACIE

THIS SOUTH CAROLINA DAY WAS SO SO GOOD. THERE WERE DONUTS, A SMALL PUG, FRIED CHICKEN AND WAFFLES, THE PRETTIEST YELLOW GOLD BRIDESMAID DRESSES, TINY TINY CRABS RUNNING OVER MY TOES ALL DAY LONG, SOOOOOO MUCH SPANISH MOSS, AND THE MOST CAREFREE BRIDE AND GROOM IN THE LAND. WOULD DO AGAIN, 10 TIMES OUT OF 10.

GRANT AND GRACIE, THANK YOU!

XO, ALYSSA
