Waterside Stone River Wedding
Waterside Stone River Wedding.
So this wedding was extra special and fun because Sara and Jason also have some ties to NY just like us! Sara even bought her wedding dress from a local boutique in the same suburb Kevin and I shared our first home! So it felt absolutely meant to be when Sara contacted us to photograph their Stone River wedding!
Sara and Jason’s wedding took place at Stone River in Columbia, SC. This was our first time capturing a wedding at the beautiful Stone River and well … it did not disappoint! The views down by the River Walk are absolutely gorgeous! And we took full advantage of the walkway by the water because if anyone has ever been to Columbia then you know it’s very HOT. So even though it was May, it felt a little bit more like July or August … especially for the majority of Sara and Jason’s close family and friends from NY! So any little breeze by the water was just wonderful!
We have so many favorite moments from Sara and Jason’s wedding but my favorites are definitely their quiet first look by the water and the toasts that were made during their reception. If there is one thing that is evident it’s the love and support these two share with their family and friends. It was pure joy capturing their wedding celebrations!!
From the couple: 1) Tell us about your favorite parts of your wedding day? We loved the environment. Everyone was there to celebrate the day, and the moment was one of celebration rather than a stuffy, formal gathering.
2) Describe your wedding style and the little things you added to make your wedding special unique to you. Rustic. My matron of honor, Ashley Berninger, made all of the signs, card holders, etc! She's amazing! Everything else was created by Jason and I.
3) Any advice to future brides? Relax and have fun! It goes by too fast
4) Anything you would change? Comfier shoes and I wish Jason and I sat down longer to eat!
