Charleston Microwedding || Allyson and Jeff

Allyson and Jeff had the sweetest Charleston microwedding on Sullivan’s Island and I’m so thrilled to be sharing it with you! Allyson actually found me through an article about elopements published in Charleston Weddings. Immediately, she knew I would be the perfect fit to capture their intimate ceremony and celebration. Their entire day was just amazing – truly about them and their family. I’m so honored I was there with them!!

Charleston Microwedding on Sullivan’s Island

Although it was a smaller wedding, Allyson and Jeff still found ways to make their day special. They decided to have a first look after Allyson got ready with her daughter. I loved the quiet moments the two of them had before it was time for Allyson to head to meet Jeff. When Jeff saw Allyson for the first time, you could just SEE how much he adored her. And the kids were so sweet, too!! I love that they were part of the first look, too! After their first look, we headed to Sullivan’s Island where Allyson and Jeff planned to exchange vows. The pathway leading to the beach was a gorgeous spot for portraits of the (almost) newlyweds. With the wind pulling at Allyson’s veil, she was the perfect depiction of a Charleston bride! It was SO special.

Beach Wedding Ceremony

And their ceremony? Oh my goodness. No matter how many weddings I see, I still get emotional over them all. And Allyson and Jeff’s love is just so tangible. Watching them exchange vows and include their children in the ceremony was so moving. I was one of the only people present with them as they exchanged vows and the weight of that honor is not lost on me. After their ceremony was over, we took the chance to walk along the beach and find the perfect light for some portraits by the water. Allyson and Jeff couldn’t stop smiling!!

Congratulations again Allyson and Jeff! Your Charleston microwedding on Sullivan’s Island was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I’m so honored I was your photographer. I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!!!
