Francis Marion Hotel wedding

Posted on May 24, 2011

Jodi and Justin got married in a lovely ceremony at the Francis Marion Hotel.

Jodi has this delicate yet grounded sort of old world beauty about her.

Many of the images of the wedding look like they could be out of an Edith Wharton novel to me.

I took these shots while the happy married couple took a break. I knew I wanted some close-ups of her birdcage veil, and flowers and eyes and such, so I asked them if they wanted to take 10 minutes during the cocktail hour to just rest while I photographed them. They gratefully sank into two marshmallowy chairs in the hotel lobby and chatted aimlessly.

I think I’m going to try to include Flop Time in all future wedding portrait time slots.

This was freelensed.
