There’s something I love about really old churches. As you walk the halls and the grounds you know that there is some serious history there. And the architecture just blows me away. Not only that but unique architecture makes for a great backdrop for some epic photos. Needless to say that when we pulled up at The Episcopal Church of the Advent for Emma and Conner’s summer wedding in Spartanburg I spotted several locations right away that I knew we would use as long as the weather held out and lucky for us even though we did see some rain it quit long enough (and at the right times) to make some awesome use of this space!

We started the day off with the girls getting ready and then it was on to some photos outside with the bridesmaids and groomsmen. I have to give this group credit, they were awesome and were super easy to work with. (And fun too!) You have no idea how much this truly means to us. With a threat of weather coming in we had a limited time before the bottom fell out to get some photos outside with the wedding party and because of them being so awesome we got everything we needed and finished right as the first drops of rain began to fell. From there is was time for the ceremony in this beautiful church. It was such an epic moment when Emma made her grand entrance with her dad walking down the aisle. And Conner’s reaction was priceless. You could see it written all over his face how happy he was to see her.

After some after ceremony photos we headed to one of my favorite places , The Country Club of Spartanburg. Guests dined and mingled until it was time for the wedding party to be introduced. They made an entrance in an epic fashion dancing in and getting the party started. And a party it was. DJ Ben Bruud kept the dance floor rocking until it was time for the couple to make their exit as the guests cheered and waived Auburn Pom Poms in the air. As they say …War Eagle!

It was such a great time and these two were amazing. I can’t thank them enough for choosing us to be a part of this day. Please enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
