Melissa & Mick at the Thomas Bennett House

Melissa, a friend of mine that I have known all the way back to middle school got married the other week and I was fortunate enough to be a part of their very special day. She and her now husband Mick were married at the Thomas Bennett House in downtown Charleston. It’s such a great venue to have both the ceremony and reception all located in the same place! It sure saves this photographer from having to pack up a ton of gear and head to a reception site. I must be getting old! ha ha! Anyways, they had a wonderful band called Almost Brothers from Other Brother Entertainment and the delicious food was catered by Hamby’s catering. They were so happy after the ceremony that they really wanted to hit the dance floor and party the night away! Congratulations to the two of you!

I couldn’t help but add a pic of both of the mothers looking out the window before the ceremony started.

I love it when I’m able to get a quick shot of a groom getting all choked up as his beautiful bride is coming down the aisle.

This was a shot from my other photographer, Joey Grob who was helping me out for this wedding. I just helped him on his wedding this past Saturday!

Now this was a very special bottle of wine that Mick was saving for a “special” occassion. I guess it was a good time to break it out!

Now I did tell Melissa that I had to post a funny picture of her leaving in the rickshaw. As you can tell she and Mick were getting pelted with birdseed! Ouch! ha ha!

Valerie Schooling / Wow, beautiful work! I love that dress shot in the window. Such a neat house! Looks like you're rocking wedding season! :-) Btw, remember the couple you saw me shooting downtown a few weeks ago? I just did an engagement session last week for a black couple, and the groom has more bling in his mouth than I've ever photographed before.
