I was thrilled to meet Hannah last year, and after we sat for coffee she let me know she for sure wanted to book me and our mutual love for Chick-fil-A really helped nail down the decision 😉 I told you I have the BEST brides! Through the process I got to have sushi and more coffee with her, and spend time with the two of them at their engagement session (It’s still one of my FAVORITES especially since they brought BALLOONS!! See it here!)!! So if you can’t already tell, I’ve been impatiently looking forward to their wedding day for quite a while!!
Hannah got ready with her besties at Embassy Suites before we headed to a brand new venue downtown, Avenue, for her first look! I about died when I saw her details and her Badgley Mischka blush heels! As I talked to Daniel while Hannah was on her way to the first look, he told me they had been dating for 820 days. My mind was blown at the thought and detail he had throughout their relationship, and how excited he was to marry Hannah!
After the first look we headed to The Reserve at Lake Keowee for more portraits and their gorgeous ceremony! Hannah was radiant as she walked down the aisle, and Daniel wiped away her tears as they vowed their love in front of their family and closest friends!
We headed back to Avenue, and the first dances were such a dream. I’ll admit I got teary when “I Loved Her First” started playing while Hannah and her dad had their father/daughter dance! If you haven’t heard that song, go look it up!! It’s seriously just too sweet!
Even after dating 820 days, you can tell Hannah & Daniel have such a deep love and respect for each other. He constantly tried to help her in any way he could, and the love the friends and family around them had for these two was so deep and special. What a joy it was to capture this special day! When Hannah and I were having coffee a few days before her wedding, I asked if we could please get sushi again after their honeymoon (thanks to her I know my new favorite sushi!!)! She replied we for sure could and that we should go shopping too! Oh how I love these two, and am SO thrilled to share their day!!!
So buckle up because there’s a LOT of favorites but I promise you won’t get tired of seeing this adorable couple and their elegant wedding!!
I’m going to need to borrow these in the future, Hannah!!!Hannah gave Daniel custom cuff links as a gift!! How perfect!!These girls were GORGEOUS and SUCH a fun crew!!SO obsessed with all this white!!!
