Have I mentioned how much I love Freshfields Village?

And have I mentioned how much I love the Millers?

Good combo.

We love to be able to capture a nice family photo.

But this is often more realistic (and funnier to look back on!)

Then we strolled over to Vincent’s for ice cream and a change of scenery.

Sharing is good.

Karmen and Nazar booked me to photograph their wedding from another state via email, so apart from a brief meeting in person this summer, we didn’t have much time to get to know each other before their big day. However, Karmen and I chatted a lot over email in all the months leading up to the wedding, and so by the time September 24th and their Charleston destination wedding rolled around, I felt like we were practically old friends.

Karmen emailed me shortly after the wedding to say that I was in the background of a lot of their friends’ snapshots, and I was smiling in every frame.

I felt a little dorky, but it’s true. I had a great time.

Who wouldn’t, with Karmen and Nazar, who are just fun and stylish and awesome, and their closest friends and family?

Karmen strung these crystals herself to hang from the tree and reception light fixtures.

Sigh. Killer Choos.

I asked Karmen if she runs. She said no, but her mother and best friend were quick to inform me that she was voted “Best Legs” in high school. Not surprised!

Happy anticipation!

Love this of Nazar and his Mom.

I loved the use of grapes. Very cool.
