My favorite thing about this particular wedding was that Grace and Colm took extra time that day for photos. They enjoyed a mid day ceremony and then took a few hours to use the beautiful grounds around the chapel to find the best photo spots. From a walk thru the woods to a stop off at Chick-fil-A, I think they ended up with a great selection of photos. They later met back up with their friends and family at a private beach home in Hilton Head for an evening reception of dinner and dancing by the pool. Colm’s family came in from Ireland so I very much enjoyed their dancing. Enjoy!

Our ceremony took place at the Waterside Chapel at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff and our reception took place a beach house located in Palmetto Dunes Plantation. The wedding consisted of close family and friends (65 guests). The chapel created a very southern vintage feel and the beach house offered guests a relaxing fun filled evening.
