Westin Poinsett Hotel Wedding - Greenville, SC
Westin Poinsett Hotel Wedding - Greenville, SC.
Nick and Katie met in a meet-cute fashion at the annual Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston…although neither were running the race! They hit it off, had drinks together that evening, and two weeks later, they had their first date in Greenville. Things went so well that Katie stayed in Greenville the entire weekend, and even met his parents then too. The initial spark wasn’t a fluke; these two were a true match!
After two years of dating, Nick and Katie were making a big step in their relationship by purchasing a house together. On the weekend of their closing day, Nick and Katie took their families by to see their soon-to-be home before they officially got the keys. While Katie thought they were posing for a photo in front of the new house, she turned to see that Nick had gotten down on one knee. He had an engraved key fob for her new set of house keys that said “Marry Me?” and of course, the engagement ring of her dreams! It was such a surprise, and the perfect way to start their lives together.
Katie had meticulously planned every gorgeous detail, flower, and printed piece for their wedding with such thought and care. In fact, she just recently “opened the doors” to her own event planning business: Katie Williams Events! Everything for the day was beautiful and just as she imagined: like a lush garden party. I could not stop gushing over the florals and her dress was like a princess. However, as much as we plan, sometimes we encounter an unexpected turn of events, and in this case it was rain. The day started with perfect weather, but right before the ceremony began the storm clouds opened up. We had hoped to take outdoor portraits at the Poinsett, but it was still coming down when we got there. Luckily, they have a small awning at the front of the hotel that we were able to use while guests enjoyed cocktail hour inside. And luck continued to be on side later on, because the rain finally stopped and we were able to go back up to the rooftop of the Poinsett for those iconic bride and groom portraits.
