Summers in the South can be brutal with heat and humidity, but that didn’t stop Jackie and Matthew from having the best day ever. These two were married in the courtyard alley of Larkin’s on the River, and hosted their closest friends and family with a southern reception in the Shirley Roe room above. It was the perfect setting for their intimate wedding.
I had the best time photographing these newlyweds. We were all laughing the whole time, and let’s be honest, they are just so cute together. Jackie and Matthew, thanks for choosing me to be your photographer and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your day!
The Wyche Pavilion was open that day (a rare sight!), so we had free reign to use it for portraits. It was the perfect setting for their First Look. It was a typical July day in the south, which means it was blazing hot. We were also without any breeze or cloud cover, so we rocked out the wedding party photos in under 10 minutes to get everyone back in the air conditioning.
With the ceremony taking place in the alley adjacent to the Shirley Roe room at Larkin’s, I was able to capture all the reception details before the ceremony. I LOVE this because the bride and groom will get the full effect of all their hard work in the photos without guests, purses, and coats cluttering them up.
With this many kids in the ceremony, there was bound to be a few funny faces happening…After bearing the heat through the ceremony, we decided to cool off inside for a bit. We used this lovely window light for smaller family portraits, and finished the larger portraits by the altar. I’m thankful for brides like Jackie who trust what I’m thinking…and look how gorgeous she looks!
