On Friday, James and I photographed Amanda and Ethan’s wedding at Cypress Gardens just outside of Charleston. The weather turned out to be really wonderful and thankfully no rain came to interrupt it! The ceremony was held at the “Wedding Garden” located at the south end of the swamp. As the ceremony began, Amanda and her Dad made a grand entrance on a wooden canoe. Laughs were shared during the ceremony and many tears came at the end. After the ceremony, we took Amanda and Ethan out on the swamp for some romantic photos of them spending time together in the canoe. My favorite thing about Cypress Gardens is the black swampy water. For those who don’t know, this place was used in a scene from the movie “The Notebook.” We’re so lucky this place is so close to Charleston. At the reception, everyone had an amazing, exotic stuffed chicken dinner (I’m no chef, not sure what the proper name for it is). Immediately following were toasts from the best man, maid of honor, and the brides father; finishing out the night with tons of dancing and sparkles as they exited. Amanda and Ethan’s wedding turned out to be a good one. I’m glad that they had us come out to photograph their wedding. Congratulations to both of them!
