……….On a brisk November morning while the sun was shining, Carolyn and Mario tied the knot in the historic courtyard of the Parsonage at St. Johannes in Charleston, South Carolina. I don’t shoot many morning weddings, but after working with these two, I definitely want to shoot more. In addition to the fun challenge of finding color in the middle of the day (hello color block walls!), we had so much more time to shoot since we weren’t chasing fading light. If you only have a small group for your wedding, I’d definitely recommend considering a morning wedding!
……….This intimate affair was flawlessly Charleston, with traditional touches from Mario’s native Spain – including a coin ceremony using the same coins (known as Las Arras) that Mario’s parents had used for their wedding! They were even able to incorporate their adorable dog Sammy that had his own spa day at The Dog Wash!
…………This was actually one of the first weddings performed at The Parsonage. At the time it was brand new, and my team and I couldn’t have been more impressed! It is extremely close to everything, but once you step off the quiet Hassell St. sidewalk and into the secluded courtyard at the rear of The Parsonage you feel like you’re in your own private world. The ability to stay on site in one of their large, well appointed rooms, is also a huge plus and cuts out the hassle of getting around in downtown Charleston.
