I have a confession: I have been putting off blogging Lindsey and Blake’s wedding but there is a really good reason – I just don’t want it to be over. Seriously, I think I am going to go through mourning now that I am saying goodbye to this dreamy event. So to ease the pain of parting, let’s break this baby up into two posts!
Lindsey and Blake were college sweethearts at SCAD. When they reconnected years later, Blake had graduated from France’s Le Cordon Bleu and opened Cafe 37 in Savannah. Lindsey was (and is) living a wildly glamorous life with a job that takes her back and forth to Italy constantly. Their love is so sweet, full of laughter and is very well worn-in. I admire them greatly and am lucky to count them as friends.
Here are the things I love about this wedding:
- The location: Reynolds Mansion has a wonderful, ever-so-slightly decayed beauty. I simply must shoot there again.
- The spanish moss: It’s everywhere and drifts and sways from anything that will stand still. It’s too dreamy for words – that’s what pictures are for.
- The no-escape clause: The wedding was held on a holiday weekend when there were no ferries available. Everyone was happily trapped on gorgeous Sapelo Island with tours, bike rides, a low-country boil and fishing to keep them busy.
- Blake’s cake: As a gift to his Beloved, Blake made and decorated the wedding cake and I got to see it happen!
- The luxury of time: This was most certainly a gift as Marissa and I had oodles of time to really explore, get to know everyone, and take our time finding THE perfect place for every single image.
- Lindsey and Blake: Their joy in one another and their glee when they became husband and wife was beautiful.
For today’s post, images from day one’s ferry ride over to Sapelo, the low country boil, a slight spanish moss obsession and some of my favorite detail shots!
