Poinsett Hotel Wedding | Sarah & Mike

Filed in: Weddings

There are brides with organization out there, and then there’s Sarah. She matches so well with my type A personality and is the perfect JSP bride: organized, timely, detailed, and still ready to have a good time! Sarah and Mike booked me for their Poinsett Hotel wedding almost 18 months ago, and it’s been a joy help them through their journey to the altar.

I’ve been photographing weddings in Greenville for over 10 years, but this was my FIRST at the Greek Orthadox Church. I mentioned to one of the Fathers that one of my favorite parts of this job is how it allows me to experience other religions and cultures. The Greek ceremony is so beautiful!

Sarah and Mike, I think your best man said it best with explaining how you’ve found the perfect match. You complement each other so well, and I know you’re going to continue life with lots of smiles and laughs. Enjoy looking through some of my favorites from their Poinsett Hotel wedding!                                   

Another wedding with rain on the forecast all day, but I’m so glad we got to fulfill their wishes with this rooftop First Look!                                The unplanned and unexpected symmetry of this one makes my heart sing! I just love that the bridesmaids on each side are in step with each other!                         Usually I’m told to stay in the back of the church or the balcony at weddings, but being placed at the altar WITH the wedding party was totally new to me! It was such a delightful perspective to be that close and see Sarah and Mike’s faces throughout the ceremony.

Also, huge shout out to my husband who acted as my second shooter in the balcony. I set the settings and showed him the exact shots I wanted him to capture. Apparently, he has learned a thing or two from watching me all these years! He did a great job, but don’t expect to see him at all my weddings!    One of the Greek traditions is throwing money at the couple during their dances to signify fortune and prosperity. I love this one of Mike’s godfather participating in this fun event!

I told Sarah and Mike that we are going to have to make TWO albums because we have SO many portraits! After dark when the sign was lit, they wanted to go back to the rooftop for a few more photos. I want to point out to my future brides and grooms– this took all of 10 minutes from their reception! You’ll have at least a couple hours for dancing, but if you want a lot of couple’s portraits, you have to make time for them. I’m so glad Sarah and Mike did!
