Every once in awhile we get the honor of celebrating marriages twice in one family. It always makes us feel so special when we get invited back to celebrate with them again for the next wedding in the family! We got this honor with the Perry’s :-) I photographed Collin’s sister’s wedding 5 years ago and when Collin and his fiancee Chelsea contacted me last year about working with them for their wedding, it made me so happy! I’ve known the Perry family my whole life growing up and they are some of the most kind people you’ll ever meet. Once I met Chelsea, I knew right away Collin had picked the perfect one to be joined into this wonderful family. Chelsea is so vibrantly beautiful and full of joy! Her happiness and optimism is infectious and my opinion about her wonderful attitude was confirmed all throughout their engagement as she didn’t stress about anything. Nothing at all was going to rock her boat about marrying her love! That constant joy radiated through on her wedding day and was even mentioned by the pastor during the ceremony about her continual optimism through life.. even through heavy Charlotte traffic that caused her ceremony start about 20 minutes late! Who cares about traffic!? Chelsea was marrying Collin. And that’s all that mattered.
I love these two. I love how Collin looks at Chelsea. You can see his affection for her. I love how Chelsea falls into him when she embraces him. They love with all they’ve got. And that’s exactly the love that Jesus gave to us to give to our spouses. He designed it and its perfect.. And these two solidified that love with Christ at the center on September 23 at the dreamiest of places, The Ivy Place in Lancaster SC. I can’t speak highly enough about this venue! Every single piece of it was incredibly beautiful! The adorable bridal suite cottage, the amazing main house from the mid 1800’s, the landscape with endless places to take portraits, and the reception area! From a photographers perspective, this place has it all and it was so much fun to photograph!
I hope you enjoy this peek into Collin and Chelsea’s wedding day! From the bottom of our hearts we are so happy for their future together :)
