Briana and Eric were married on June 9th, with a ceremony and reception at McMenamin’s Edgefield. It was such a joy to be the wedding photographers at their gorgeous Edgefield Wedding. Since we are considered preferred wedding photographers for McMenamin’s Edgefield, we’re thrilled when our couples choose it as their wedding venue!
McMenamin’s Edgefield Wedding Photography
When we arrived at Edgefield, Laurie, the second shooter, went to hang out with the guys, while Amy, the primary shooter, was with the ladies and the “flower dog.” That’s right—they got a special floral leash and a bridal veil for their dog so that she could be part of their special day. What a great way to make sure that their whole family is in the wedding!
As we took “getting ready” pictures, we were all worried about the weather. We didn’t know if we’d be able to get those formal wedding portraits outside, because the rain wouldn’t let up at all. But just in time for the first look, we got a break in the clouds! We headed out to the Edgefield Gardens, where Eric and Briana saw each other for the first time. We were able to capture some great wedding photographs of these two out on the beautiful grounds. From there, we met up with the rest of the wedding party and their family for formal wedding portraits by Blackberry Meadow. And right after the last formal portrait was done, the clouds once again opened up with rain! It was perfect timing!
A Romantic Wedding Reception at McMenamin’s Edgefield Blackberry Hall
Because of the rain, the ceremony was moved inside Blackberry Hall, where their friend officiated the ceremony. We took some time for Eric and Briana to sign the marriage license before we took a few more photos of them as husband and wife around the grounds and headed back for the cocktail hour and reception.
At one point during the wedding reception, we had a short break in the rain—and a rainbow came out! We ran outside to grab a photo of the couple with the rainbow before it faded away.
Even with all of the uncertainty with the weather, we never saw Briana and Eric stressed out or overly concerned. They never stopped smiling—all day—and always had these looks of pure joy and happiness on their faces when we looked at them.
Thank you so much, Briana & Eric, for making our jobs as wedding photographers so easy. Your joy spilled out into all your wedding photography, and we felt like a valued part of your day.
