Words from the photographer:
While all of my couples hold a special place in my heart, I had the honor of being a part of this wedding journey from the start. You may remember Dana + TJ's tear jerker proposal that was a complete surprise to her. She thought she was simply modeling for a styled editorial shoot, when in reality it was all a coverup for an elaborate proposal plan by TJ. Little did Dana know that while modeling as a bride, she would be asked to be one! Tj dropped down on one knee and asked the love of his life to marry him!! Of course she said yes!
Over the following year, Dana and TJ planned what ended up being a wedding that was perfectly reflective of their individual personalities and style while perfectly blending their couple style too.
Dana +TJ just tied the knot this month at an amazing celebration in South Carolina.
Needless to say, I was THRILLED to be able to be a part of their wedding. I loved the glamour and details that they incorporated into their day… but most of all I loved capturing their love.
TJ and Dana, and their entire wedding party, are just as amazing in real life as they are in the pictures. Based on the love their images have gotten on instagram, its pretty obvious!
Dana +TJs ceremony was simply perfect. From the heartfelt vows to their unity ceremony that consisted of cord tying, we laughed and cried during the perfectly decorated ceremony on the lawn of the Brakefield at Riverwalk.After the Ceremony, Dana surprised TJ with a custom leather moto jacket that said Alpha Wife For Life as a tribute to TJs fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha. How chic did she look with the jacket and gown on?!After formals, it was finally time to PAR-TAY! Dana + TJ took to the dance floor and all of their guests followed along. The party was still going strong long after I left!
