I have been waiting since last year to finally post these pics and there will be an overload. I am glad I splurged and got the photography I want and that is the biggest advice I will give to brides. Make photography a priority. I know we all have different budgets but remember that these pictures show memories of a great day. I almost cried looking at them last night and seeing the shots they got of my husband and myself. I have heard horror stories of how photographers can be via some of the brides here so definitely choose someone of good quality and that takes pride in their job. We had a minimony with three guests at a lovely bed & breakfast. This was during the start of Eta brewing so I did not get the golden hour pics I wanted but that is the only bad thing I can say about that day. Looking back at the pics you would not know there was a tropical storm coming lol. We went for dinner at a local, popular restaurant and just had a great time conversing and eating the rest of the evening. Each bride is different and your wedding should be how you want but for anyone questioning making an elopement, micro wedding, minimony special...still give it those wedding touches. I did not have the big sh'bang but I feel no less than a bride than other brides and the day was truly a special one and memorable ladies. Ladies do not sweat the small stuff. The day is about you two and focus on that happiness even when outside stressors make that a challenge. Below are some of the costs but I am sure little expenditures here and there I am forgetting about because I bought various favors and gifts. Ladies still planning their wedding (esp during COVID times) I wish you the best of luck and the day will be magical.

Venue - $533 Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast
Dress (David's Bridal) - $550 ish (returned the first which was almost $900 and with the extra money I got my Betsey Johnson shoes, bridal robe and jewelry.
Photography - $1000 for 2 at an elopement special
Officiant/ DOC - $400
HMUA - $320

Now onto the pics!!!
