KATLYN & GUS
A Wingate Plantation Wedding
Johns Island, South Carolina
From the photographer: “When Katlyn initially contacted me to shoot her big day, I knew we would be the perfect fit! Katlyn was envisioning a sweet southern wedding in Charlestons, SC that would be inspired by sweet southern charm! Katlyn carefully thought out details for her wedding day and picked a dream team of vendors to bring her vision to life!
The venue, Wingate Plantation, it tucked away just outside of Charleston. Without doing anything, the property alone screams southern beauty with its old, large, Spanish moss covered trees. Katlyn picked details that made a big impact, such as her uniquely beautiful bouquet of peonies and orchids.
My favorite detail was the getaway car! Pro tip, the getaway car company can bring the vehicle during golden hour for portraits, and then bring it back again for your exit! This was so fun to use for photos and really tied the whole gallery together!
To top it off, Katlyn picked a two piece dress with a removable skirt that she took off for the reception! It was such a fun idea and the guests loved the surprise!
More important than any pretty details, Katlyn had informed me that her father was in poor health (Gus actually proposed to Katlyn in front of her fathers rehab facility when her father was being treated for severe pneumonia!). It was so special for her father to be there and for them to have so many special moments together, including a father/ daughter first look.”
