Today is the perfect day to reminisce Francesca + Quentin’s beautiful summer elopement at Saint Mary’s Church in historic downtown Charleston.
Francesca & Quentin’s big wedding was sadly postponed due to covid. They decided not to wait another year to get married so they made a last-minute trip down to Charleston to elope. Our typical weddings (pre-covid of course) are booked 9 to 12 months in advance so this year was so cool (well, cool in the situation) to have so many couples do things differently!
I knew I was going to love this couple and their family from the moment the limo pulled up in front of the church. Quentin and his family all came inside, and then we played musical-family hiding him away in the side room when Francesca arrived!
As with all things 2020 it wouldn’t have been a real event if something hadn’t gone off-track. The deacon had a mix-up regarding the ceremony time so by the time he was able to arrive it was an hour later than their scheduled ceremony – but Francesca & Quentin didn’t let anything throw them off their day! We switched up some order and took their individual family photos first, and they stayed hidden away from each other just a little bit longer!
Their ceremony was beautiful and so sweet – and then we went off to explore one of Charleston’s “hidden” beautiful spots for their portraits. I am (still) obsessed with Francesca’s dress and shoes, and absolutely loved her all-white bouquet from Tupelo Honey Flower Shop.
Cheers to forever, lovers.
