What a day.  Karissa and Markian chose two of my personal favorite venues for their wedding day. We started the day off at Glassy Chapel located in the Cliffs gated community on Glassy Mountain. If you ever want to experience what it feels like to be on top of the world, this is the place. Views unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Truly a photographers playground. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. And it was another first for us in that it was a Ukrainian Catholic ceremony. After the ceremony we spent some time with the couple at some epic overlooks and it was down the mountain to downtown Greenville, SC. We arrived late in the afternoon at Larkin’s Cabaret Room and that’s where the party got started. After the guest dined on an amazing meal from Larkin’s they danced the night away to the sounds of the Emerald Empire Band until it was time for an epic grand exit by the bride in groom though a sea of sparklers. What a day indeed.

Every time you can start the day off at Glassy Chapel and end it at Larkin’s in downtown Greenville,SC plus spend it with an amazing couple and their family and friends is a good day in my book. Seriously the places this job takes us and the people we get to meet makes it by far, hands down the best job I’ve ever had and I feel truly blessed to get to do it.

Please enjoy these photos from their amazing wedding day!
