Downtown Columbia Wedding | 701 Whaley Wedding | Columbia, SC Photographer Christa Rene Photography

The first wedding of the season in downtown Columbia with their wedding reception at 701 Whaley was just incredible. Sweet Anna and I got to meet for coffee last summer with her mom, and we got to talk about all things wedding after she officially booked! Anna is one of those girls who will go out of her way to make you feel loved and welcomed. She has a mature presence but still likes to have fun! Her constant smile is clearly from pure joy! Talking with her felt just like chatting with a friend as she shared her and Nic’s story, and asked about Edward and I! Since then I got to meet for her in Columbia for lunch, and then a few months later for their downtown Greenville engagement session, and that’s when I officially met Nic! And I instantly loved him and saw what an incredible team these two make! They are one of those couples that are always just genuinely happy. And then when together, it just explodes and the joy spreads to everyone around!

We counted down the days to their wedding. It was my first one of the season, and I always feel some extra pressure when I haven’t shot a wedding in a few months! But I met Anna at her church in Columbia, SC, and she had gifts for me in hand! I mean, how nice can you get?? Their day flowed by and they held each other close through the day, and it was so clear how much everyone loved this sweet couple.

Anna’s beautiful reception was at 701 Whaley in downtown Columbia. Anna’s dad gave a speech at the reception, and he said after meeting Nic, he wrote down words that described him. It ended up being many of the words to describe love in 1 Corinthians. Patient, kind & humble! Then Anna’s matron of honor gave her speech and said that her and the bridesmaids were talking about Anna’s different character qualities that would make her a good wife. And one they all thought was important was intentional. She went on to say that Anna will do whatever she can to make sure someone feels loved and accepted. She intentionally reaches out to those around her, and it was so clear she’s touched so many lives with her kindness and intentionality. They’re truly such an amazing couple!

I know Anna & Nic are having an incredible honeymoon in St. Augustine, Florida, and I’m SO excited to share her beautiful downtown Columbia wedding! It was such an honor to plan with them and photograph their wedding. They’ve become friends of mine in the process, and hold such a special place in my heart! Enjoy some favorites from their Columbia, SC wedding day!
