“The boy had just finished with graduate school, and had begun the enlistment process in the United States Navy. He was out by the UT campus looking for a temporary job while he stayed with his grandparents. The girl was trying to be on her own for a while. She’d dated some in college, but finally decided to give herself some space. Neither had any idea what was about to hit them.
Kieran dropped in to The Copper Cellar for lunch, and who should be his waitress but our leading lady, Miss Victoria King. After a casual lunch, and some light flirting, the boy got up to leave, but had a thought and turned back to the table. Tori saw him get up and then turn back; she wondered, but dismissed it and took care of her other tables.
When it came time to clear it off, Tori noticed a receipt among the crumbs with a phone number, and so it began…” Tori King Webb, Bride.
I first met Tori and Kieran at a Starbucks in Mount Pleasant, my first impression was how young they were and that I had never photographed a bride and groom that were under 25! We quickly grabbed our goods and sat outside. As I listened to their charming love story I witnessed true love and I saw something that I had not witnessed before. I saw two under 25 year olds know that they would be spending the rest of their lives together. I saw into their future…their complete chemistry and affection for one another was so very special. I knew I wanted to capture their wedding and see if I could at least try to replicate their love two dimensionally on screen.
They chose to rent a private home outside of Charleston, SC so that it was a wonderful, comfortable and gorgeous location for their friends and family to arrive to from neighboring Tennessee. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. It was a warmer day in January and the sun was out… what more could a bride desire?
The love between them was intoxicating and the love that their friends and family showed them at the wedding was an amazing moment to be a part of.
Tori and Kieran, I wish you both the best! Thank you again for allowing me to capture your special day. Please enjoy this sneak peak to tie you over until the final images are finished.
I hate being cold.
And now, since living in a “four season” climate in South Carolina, I am kind of spoiled that I don’t have to be that cold anymore! Our family has moved to Charleston, and I am fortunate enough to be able to evade the North Eastern winters… even though there are four seasons down here, my whimpy self will get to experience them mildly!
As some of the leaves change their colors and the stores begin to blast us with the reminder of winter coming… with all of their promotions and holiday cheer… I reflect back on this past summer.
Oh! Those glorious summers of New England… No one can deny how perfect they are.
Katie and Nathan chose to marry on one of the most quintessential, New England holidays that there is. The Fourth Of July.
Their backyard (beach) wedding was held at a private home in Milford Connecticut. It was a perfect spot to watch the fireworks off the beach.
