First of all, the beauty of Elizabeth and Andrew’s Seaview Hotel wedding had us swooning. We knew this wedding would be glorious as the couple gave us hints of what to expect during our dreamy Cooper River Park engagement session. From the luxurious blue velvet accessories to the sweet summery florals to the charming pagoda ceremony setting, it was a day overflowing with beauty.
Second, Mother Nature blessed us with perfect weather as everyone got ready at the Wyndham hotel in Galloway. The girls wore playful leopard print pajamas, overjoyed to help Elizabeth prepare for her first look. She looked stunning in a fitted lace gown with a plunging neckline. Beautiful Nightmare FX and Melanie Rae Artistry Make-up transformed our bride into an absolute goddess. With her hair up, soft curls framing her face, dramatic make-up and crystal accessories, she looked like she had just stepped out of a magazine. Andrew looked dapper with his tribe of boys, all dressed in smart suits with braces and bow ties.
Furthermore, the bride’s father arrived and could not hide his emotion. Such a sweet dad-daughter moment with mom there for the sentimental moment too. Then it was time for the first look outdoors, where the nervous groom patiently awaited.
Following Elizabeth flying into Andrew’s arms, they had some intimate moments admiring each other’s bridal looks. Then they exchanged vows privately in the lush garden before we had some time for couple portraits. Joy, love, and giddy anticipation were in the air as we explored the scenic grounds. The flowy veil photos are some of my favorites of the day. These images evoke the soft, romantic vibe we captured amongst the cherry blossoms during the engagement shoot. We zipped back on the golf cart to find the excited parents and bridal party for more pre-ceremony photos then it was time for these gorgeous souls to get married!
Next, the bride’s grand entrance at the top of the stairs down to the pretty garden ceremony set-up was dramatic and emotional. If you wonder if a first look takes away from the special moment of walking down the aisle, the groom’s tears and father’s expression give you the answer.
The Seaview Hotel wedding ceremony unfolded in an effortlessly loving way, infused with tears of joy, laughter, and some profound moments as the couple exchanged their rings. As they were announced as married, they held hands and almost danced down the aisle, pausing for a second kiss. The blissful moments began as the high-vibes celebration scene was set in the Bayview Ballroom.
Finally, the space was perfectly decorated, with round tables adorned with white flowers and blue luxury linens. The couple’s sweetheart table was so elegant, surrounded by flowers and a neon sign featuring their new name. The four-tiered cake looked lovely, with subtle blue tones and a calligraphy cake topper. After enjoying the essential formalities, it was soon time for the party to kick off. The dance floor was packed all night as everyone grooved to the sounds of the EBE Talent band.
What a beautiful wedding! Enjoy this sneak peek from Elizabeth and Andrew’s best day ever!
