I’ll admit it: I am a Columbia, SC wedding photographer, but I am based in the small nearby town of Newberry, SC (located halfway between Columbia and Greenville). The majority of the weddings I shoot take place in larger cities like Columbia and Greenville, SC. But when I get the chance to photograph a wedding in my small hometown of Newberry, SC, I jump at it! When you think of my hometown (IF you think of this small town), you may think of Historic Downtown Newberry or the Newberry Opera House, but you may not be as familiar with our beautiful, sprawling countryside. Luckily for you, Danielle and Mackenzie’s fall date captured the beauty of an outdoor wedding in Newberry.
From the first email Danielle and I exchanged, I knew we were the perfect team to work on capturing her wedding day. She is a dancer, working towards her Doula certification, and she had an Old Hollywood aesthetic in mind for her wedding: glamorous, classy, and simply beautiful. It helps that she is gorgeous and embodies classic beauty herself! It also helps that her parents’ gorgeous home in the country would be the backdrop for hers and Mackenzie’s wedding day. The second I walked into her parent’s home on her big day, I knew that she had nailed every aspect of her vision for the wedding.
After the first look, Danielle took a chance to go relax and hide before the outdoor wedding ceremony so that none of the guests would see her before her walk down the aisle! We took this moment to capture the groom and his groomsmen. The mood with a group of guys in a wedding is always a bit different than the gals, but fun nevertheless!
The rest of this Newberry, SC outdoor wedding day was a whirlwind of capturing the details of beauty and love surrounding Danielle and Mackenzie. I’m sure you can all tell from the photographs, that Danielle and Mackenzie put a ton of attention into the details of the day, from the vintage gold rings, to the lace mantilla veil, glamorous long sleeved wedding gown, and brushed gold antlers and candles used as decor in their fall/winter wedding.
