Photographing Kimberly and Clay’s wedding at the Drengaelen House of Coker College in Hartsville, South Carolina, was the perfect way to kick off our 2019 wedding season! Truth be told, this is one of my favorite weddings I have photographed to date. The Drengaelen House is simply a beautiful venue, and Kimberly and Clay just have impeccable taste as you can see below!
Kimberly and Clay met when they were in high school. They were both working on staff at a summer camp in North Carolina. Their first conversation was while they were cleaning the sinks in the boys restroom….how romantic ;) After camp, Clay asked Kimberly for her number and they text throughout that year. They met again at camp the following year, and Kimberly asked Clay to her prom. From there, the rest is history!
There wedding day was very sweet! Emotions on a wedding day are always a roller coaster. You’re excited because you’re about to be marrying the love of your life, but you are also stressed because you’re hoping every detail you’ve planned comes together. This was was true for Kimberly as it is for all brides. One of my favorite moments of the entire day was when Kimberly’s mother stopped and prayed with Kimberly. It was one of the most beautiful mother-daughter moments I’ve had the privilege of witnessing over my years of photographing weddings!
Another favorite moment from the day was Kimberly and Clay’s first look. They both instantly relaxed when they were able to see each other. It was truly a moment that made me swoon. I also enjoyed their birdseed exit. As you can see, Clay’s friends got a little heavy handed with the bird seed ;) While they may not have enjoyed it in the moment, it sure did make for some fun photographs!
Please enjoy my favorites from this beautiful wedding!
