Kyla + Adrian // Malibu blue beach wedding at Fripp Island Resort in Saint Helena, SC

Kyla + Adrian balance each other out perfectly and share a truly deep connection with one another that is extremely obvious when you see these two in a room together. After meeting and moving to Charleston, SC earlier this year this is a couple that sacrifices a lot to be with each other. I have to admit the bride and I sparked a nice little friendship after she found some crafts on Pinterest but claims to not be “crafty” so we spent some Sunday’s together crafting and she did a lot of prep work so that on the day of the wedding it was pretty easy for myself and staff to set up. I have to give this bride a lot of credit, she thought of everything and boy what a relief that was on wedding day. Kyla found an arch that she was in love with but we couldn’t find it so with the help of a local lumber company (Ashley River Lumber) and some trees from a friends farm we were even able to make that happen and it was beyond gorgeous. So now that everything was in place we loaded up the trailer and headed to Fripp Island and it was finally the day of the wedding (YAY) after a gorgeous sunny morning of hair and make up it was finally time for Kyla and Adrian to see each other for the first time for their first look. Away from the venue they found a secluded area. Kyla walked up behind Adrian and tapped him on the shoulder and when he turned around… the look on his face was the kind of expression every girl dreams of; a look of total and utter amazement. After a few more pictures it was time for the ceremony. The weather was absolutely amazing and I have to say that with a hurricane that came just a few (and I mean just a few) weeks prior we were a little nervous but we could not have asked for a better day! So we have the bridal party all lined up and with Adrian now on the beach for ceremony waiting and Kyla with her father sharing a few last laughs before heading down the aisle. Even with doing a first look I have to say that it did not take away from the ambiance of Adrian seeing Kyla walk down the aisle in front of their closest family and friends which gave everyone “all the feels” after seeing his face. After the “I do’s” and a sand ceremony everyone headed up to the pavilion deck for cocktail hour. A week prior to their wedding Kyla’s stepmom reached out to me because she had a big surprise for the bride. Little bit of back story, Kyla and Adrian are art enthusiasts and the bride’s stepmom crossed paths with Joe Everson who finishes a painting while singing the national anthem, it was extremely moving. It was very lively and fun reception to say the least and it ended with Kyla and Adrian leaving through a tunnel of sparklers as they drove off to their “official after party” on a decorated golf cart.
