Welcome to the blog

We hosted our first ever Wedding Walkthrough at Heyward Manor this year! It was an incredible full-day (6+ hour) wedding shoot. We started with details and getting ready photos all the way to the sparkler exit. It was a phenomenal day with a full wedding party, actual engaged couple, and local wedding professionals. Photographing a Heyward Manor wedding is an absolute DREAM! This venue is gorgeous, down to every single detail.

The gorgeous venue for our event- Heyward Manor!

Favorite Parts of the Day

Some highlights of the day included getting ready in their stunning bridal suite filled with all the natural light! We also had a beautiful calligraphy backdrop provided by Lettered By Steph. This is where Melanie and Trent shared their intimate first look. The ceremony took place outside by the lake. And the amazing C+A Event Planning designed all the florals, which included stunning arrangements at the on-property swing and boat. Talk about wedding GOALS!! We ended the day with stunning sunset portraits of the bride and groom on the massive property at Heyward. The couple actually shared a first dance, complete with sparkler fountains and clouds provided by Uptown Entertainment. We finished with a fantastic sparkler exit!

The beautiful floral swing I am still obsessed with!
