This summer I achieved one of my biggest business goals, actually, it was a few goals all wrapped in one. I planned and executed my first same sex wedding. It was also my first destination and beach wedding. Whittley and Danielle were an absolute joy to work with. Whittley was a bubbly bride with all the nerves that come with "bubbly". Danielle was her calming other half. Whittley and Danielle are from Atlanta, GA by wanted a in intimate beach ceremony with their closest friends and family. They would eventually decide on the beautiful Palmetto Dunes Resort in Hilton Head, SC for their nuptials. Here's a peek into their special day.
"Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you. "- Loretta Young
This summer's weather really put up a fight for my brides and grooms. It rained on all of their weddings but I like to believe they were special blessings for them to start their new journeys. The rain had stopped long enough for the Hilton Head 'I dos' but left behind a windy sand storm. With their bridal party and courageous wedding guests, Whittley and Danielle became Mrs. and Mrs. Richardson.
No matter the storm, I know these two ladies, can withstand anything. They have an unbreakable bond, make for a great team and have an awesome support system.
"Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible — it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could." — Barbara de Angelis
Wishing all the best to Mrs. and Mrs. Danielle Richardson!

Baby, it's cold outside but I warm up when I think about this year's July wedding. Tiffaney and Sean were a total match for each other. Tiffaney was a dreamy bride to be and Sean was the groom we all wish to have, encouraging his bride to do whatever would make her happy. Their romantic nuptials took place at the beautiful Mendenhall Inn in Mendenhall, PA. The day started out as one of the most beautiful summer days we had this year. And even though the rain came just minutes before the ceremony could begin, it didn't take away from one of the most romantic weddings I have ever worked.
Tiffaney and Sean were one of the most loving couples I have ever worked with. Their love shined throughout the entire day. We started with an early afternoon First Look Shoot at the beautiful Longwood Gardens. There they would get some alone time before the ceremony and get rid of any jitters together.
After the private photoshoot, we headed back to the Mendenhall for touch up make up, bridal party pictures and finish setting up for ceremony and reception. It was a busy day for sure but it was one of the most beautiful weddings I had ever accomplished.
So yea, remember that rain I mentioned? Yep, it happens. Just minutes before the bridal party could get down the aisle, tiny droplets of rain began to hit the ground. No bride is ever happy when this happens but with encouragement for her planner, groom and officiant, the show went on in the reception space. Tears turned into smiles and a Mr. and Mrs. Sean Henry entered the world.
All was well for the rest of the night. It was an evening filled with love, laughter and family; a time these two will never forget.
