Carrie and Chris’s fairy tale wedding at Bowing Oaks Plantation was nothing short of AMAZING! So much thought went into planning every last detail of this fabulous event. It was the perfect early-fall wedding!
Some might say that Chris and Carrie met by chance. They just happened to work at two [very different] side-by-side stores. Chris works for a sporting goods company, and at the time Carrie was a sales associate for a premium make up store. On her breaks, Carrie often “shopped” at Chris’s store….. And that’s how it all started! Of course, nothing really happens by accident!
When you spend time with these two, it’s easy to see that they are made for each other. They are both friendly and fun, and it is so evident that they are best friends as well as in love with one another. That is definitely a recipe for a happy marriage!
Carrie and Chris chose to have both their ceremony and reception at Bowing Oaks Plantation. I love shooting weddings there because it is so beautiful and also very well-thought-out. The “getting ready” rooms are spacious and amazing. In addition, Carrie and Chris were blessed to be able to have their ceremony outdoors under the covered pavilion.
As it turned out, the weather was NOT very cooperative that day. In fact, it rained on and off for most of the day. Looking at these pictures, you would never know it……but it absolutely poured during their actual ceremony. A nor’easter was to blame, but it couldn’t put a damper on Carrie and Chris’s big day!!! They still had a beautiful wedding and were able to celebrate with their close family and friends. It was the perfect day to start this newest chapter in their lives!
