Parrish and Keith first met in the fourth grade. They played soccer together, attended junior prom together, but went their separate ways when it came time for their college years. Later in life, they reconnected – and from there is history.
The two of them moved to Tennessee and Keith proposed to Parrish after closing on their house. They love the outdoors, with hiking and running together being a favorite pastime. They chose beautiful Charleston, South Carolina for their wedding because the location was meaningful to them.
We began photos at the beautiful Magnolia Plantation and Gardens – just after sunrise. Parrish and Keith are honest-to-goodness dream clients and were happy to meet there to take advantage of the gorgeous morning light. Parrish brought her belongings, got ready inside of the greenhouse, and headed out to meet Keith for their first look amongst a stunning backdrop of dangling Spanish moss.
We then headed to The Battery and White Point Garden in the downtown area for some photographs, as it was part of Parrish’s favorite route when she used to reside in Charleston and jog through the area.
We headed over to The Cedar Room at The Cigar Factory for their wedding ceremony and reception and it did not disappoint. If you’re on the lookout for a sweet loft spot in Charleston, look no further! This place has it all – industrial architecture, parking, and the most delicious food. The Cedar Room is right above Mercantile & Mash, which we had visited just the day before for some wonderful coffee and eats. Always a plus!
Parrish opted against carrying a full bouquet and, instead, she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps. When her mother got married, she carried a single flower. Parrish did the same and hand-selected a flower from a vintage metal pitcher – just before the ceremony began!
Congrats to Parrish and Keith! Their wedding was such a laid-back and fun-filled celebration and we couldn’t have been more honored to travel down to Charleston to experience it all with these two.
