A couple after their Lenora's Legacy wedding during the fall season just outside of Greenville,SC.

Lenora’s Legacy Wedding – Elizabeth + Patrick – Greenville, SC Wedding Photographers

 

I love first looks. I feel privileged to be chosen to witness and document these moments. Don’t get me wrong I understand both sides of the fence as far as wanting to do them and not but when couples decide to and everything falls into place it can be one of the most touching shared moments of their lives. When I found out that Elizabeth and Patrick wanted to do a first look I was so excited for them for several reasons. First they chose an amazing venue to get married at. Lenora’s Legacy is a stunning landscape that screams Southern Charm. From the restored farmhouse to the converted peach shed pavilion there are so many options for us as far as locations that I knew we would have the perfect backdrop for the moment. Second I knew that after doing a first look they would be more relaxed when time came for the ceremony. And last but definitely not least it gives us more time before the wedding to spend with the just the couple on their big day and capture some amazing moments ….and there were plenty of those moments. And that was just one small part of this amazing day.

We arrived in the early afternoon and spent some time with the girls as they got ready. Once in the dress we took the girls out into the meadow on the property and got some great shots of them by the fence and out in the tall grass that you can only get this time of year. Then it was on to the first look. As Patrick waited patiently in the courtyard by the fountain Elizabeth came out of the double doors and walked up behind him, and tapped him on the shoulder. From that very moment it was evident the pure joy these two had to be starting the rest of their lives together. You could see it all over their faces. After giving them a moment we spent some time with Patrick and his groomsmen in the field and then took some shots with the family under the gazebo.

After a beautiful ceremony under the large tree facing the meadow it was on to the reception in the peach shed pavilion. The setting for the reception was a scene straight out of a bridal magazine with the immaculate floral arrangements by the talented Caroline Schell and the swinging sounds of the Monty Craig Quartet coming from the stage. Every last detail was perfect.

Please enjoy some of my favorite shots from their Lenora’s Legacy Wedding.
