I just recently photographed a wedding in the Midlands of South Carolina,
on a little Plantation called Buck Ridge.
It was such an amazing place, perfect for a wedding!
It is actually a hunting preserve (which I don't care for since I love animals alive, rather then .. you know, dead). But it was still beautiful.
When you first pull into the plantation, you drive through Leland Cypress Trees, then it turns into Bradford Pear Trees, then you have a field on the left, and a gorgeous colonial style home on your right, when you keep driving, you see the pond with a bridge going across, and a waterfall, let's just say, it's the perfect place for a wedding ceremony.
As you keep driving, you have Pine Trees to your left, and the Hunting Lodge to your right, and if you were to keep driving, you would come up to cabins nestled in the woods. On the other side of the Plantation, you have another Colonial style home and a lodge, there is also Fields, with gorgeous Horses, and dog kennels for hunting.
It was a simple wedding, I would say there were maybe 100 people or less.
The ceremony was outside (let me just say that we have been getting very strange weather here in the South, one minute it's sunny and beautiful, and then the next minute it's windy, and raining). So during the ceremony it was sunny, then clouds rolled in, so they had to have the reception inside. Which sucks for me, I hate shooting photo's indoors. If you've seen my work, you know I prefer outside, with natural lighting. Oh well, good thing I was working with another great photographer.
It was a very fast wedding, we got there at four, took pictures, had the ceremony, went to the reception, watched the couple dance, everyone ate delicious food, then it was time for the cake, and then the tossing of the bouquet, and garter, then a little dancing, and it was over by 9:30 (but we stayed and took drunk pictures of the bride and groom, along with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, they were all so hilarious)!
Congratulations to Josh and Nicole!
And thank you Amy for giving me a chance to do this with you!
