Denise and Mike’s wedding day at Mt Horeb UMC with reception at 300 Senate in Columbia, was off to a great start when my second shooter and I arrived at Denise’s parents’ house for the getting ready portion of the day. We walked into one of the most amazing residences I have EVER seen! The location on Lake Murray in Lexington, SC was perfect for all of the day’s detail shots, as well as some super cute photos of the bride and her bridesmaids in their matching Columbia Sportswear fishing shirts (monogrammed by Denise and her sister/wedding helper extraordinaire, Angela).
It is clear that not only do Denise and Mike truly love each other, they also have a great knack for adding their own personal touches to the wedding day! Not a detail went unnoticed, and the purple and gray color scheme was perfect for a late summer/almost Fall wedding. Their vendors all went above and beyond to create this gorgeous day!
For more on their love story and their sweet family (including 4 dogs), check out their engagement session from last winter. In the meantime, though, enjoy the highlights from their wedding day, especially the gorgeous reception at 300 Senate!
If you’re paying attention, you’ll notice that one foot doesn’t quite belong…it’s because the groom’s best man was a girl! She opted against wearing socks with heels (good call). Mike really knocked it out of the park when he gifted a Canon 6d to Denise, along with all of the gear she would need to enjoy it on their honeymoon!
