Caroline & Luke are the people that you want to spend more and more time around. They say you can tell the character of someone by the company that they keep and this is true for these two. Seriously. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were hanging out with family. The bridesmaids were dancing, singing the beibs and happy birthday to Caroline. Yes, it was her birthday and seriously, who doesn’t want to have their wedding on their birthday!? Thats like the ultimate dream wedding! When I went to hang out the guys, it was really encouraging to be around a bunch of solid guys who love the Lord, love Luke and love to have fun. They were hilarious and we joked around more than we took pictures! This speaks volumes of Caroline and Luke! Their love was seriously infectious and such a joy to be around let alone photograph! We knew that since we took their engagement pictures and we were really excited for their wedding when we saw her wedding dress at her bridal session!
The First ARP Fort Mill Wedding Ceremony
First of all, let me just say that I don’t think there was a dry eye during the wedding. Seriously. He stepped forward to greet his bride as her father walked her down the aisle and she took his hand as they stepped up to begin the moments that set the foundation for the rest of their married. As they shared their vows, Luke began to get choked up and at that point, it was over for everyone. You couldn’t see a dry eye in the church and with the softest touch you see Caroline embrace him. Ahh, you could have died! It was amazing!
The Mcbryde Hall Wedding Reception
So, just to set the stage, imagine a wedding at Hogwartz! minus the flying brooms and the owl delivering mail, this place looked like something out of a movie! Seriously, it was so beautiful and the wedding was perfect! To top it all off, Not only did they have a heck of a party but the CLEMSON TIGER showed up! Once the tiger came out, they chanted the fight song and the place starting to come alive! They danced the night away and ended with bubbles. It was a dream come true!
The Wedding Vendors
They had an amazing list of vendors! He dress is from The Atlanta Bride Couture and designed by Pearl Couture.The beautiful ceremony was held at First ARP in Rock Hill. The reception was held at the Mcbryde Hall at Winthrop University. And seriously, this place was gorgeous! The GORGEOUS 4 tiered cake was made by Sylvia’s Cakes. The Threshold band was hilarious and absolutely killed it! Oh and don’t get me started on the florals by New Creations Flower Company! Every bouquet and flower setting for the ceremony and wedding were absolutely gorgeous! The rentals were by Ribald Events. I can’t wait to see and share the video by Max Huggins.
