4th of July Wedding Celebration!

What a cool 4th of July I had! I got to spend it with Betsy and Richard for their big wedding day! Cake and fireworks, what else could I ask for! ha!

They were married at The Citadel’s Summerall chapel located in downtown Charleston, SC. After the ceremony we hopped on a trolley car and headed over to the battery for a couple of quick pics of the bridal party before heading down the street to the Carolina Yacht Club for the reception. Since it was the 4th and I knew that there would be fireworks going on somewhere, I figured that I had to get the two of them as high up as I could to get a good perspecive on things! So up to the roof we went. It provide a nice height to get above everyone else to get some shots of the fireworks going off in the background. Betsy was such a good sport hiking up her dress to crawl through a window to get out onto the roof. Now that’s dedication folks! ;-) A big thanks to my buddy Mike K. for helping me out with all that climbing around that we were doing!  She and Richard then headed out into the harbor on their boat with a sparkler send off from family and friends. Congratulations to the both of you!!

This was some pearls that Richard gave to Betsy right before the wedding. Way to go Richard! Score some points early on!



Since we were at Betsy’s house getting ready, why not have the dog come out and pose for us too!







This was such a cool groomsmen cake! Betsy surprised Richard with it at the reception. He had no idea about it! They both really love the Monticello House.





So here’s where we crawled out onto the roof of the Carolina Yacht Club to get some shots of the fireworks off in the distance. Betsy is such a trooper for doing that! ;-)



This was their boat that they left on after the reception. Since I knew that it was going to be really dark out on the dock when the left, I suggested that they put up some Christmas tree lights to help give me some more ambient light on the boat. I think that it worked out pretty nicely…….
