I remember when Sydney asked if I had July 2nd available and I did… and I thought quietly to myself “does she know how hot it is going to be? and this is an outdoor wedding!!!” but boy am I glad I had it available and had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful Greenville Wedding because y’all… this was such a sweet one!!! It was a crazy hot day and by the end of it I think we had all drank gallons of water and sweated to death but it was such a sweet sweet day and it was such an honor to be part of this wedding that was held at Mountain View Estate.
I photographed Sydney & Eythan’s engagement photos a few weeks prior to the wedding so it was so much fun to see them again so soon!!! These two and their family & friends were crazy sweet and it was such a joy to be surrounded by all of them and I can’t thank them enough for welcoming me with open arms. I also can’t thank Patty & Joe (the owners of Mountain View Estate) for being so kind to me ALL day. More than once Patty asked me if I needed anything!! Love when I get to work with amazing couples, and amazing venues and amazing wedding vendors… makes wedding days that much better than they already are!!
This couple really is the sweetest. They love each other and love Jesus so much and it shows. It shows in how they love each other, in how they love their family & friends, and in how they started their marriage. Their ceremony was centered around their love of Jesus & each other and more than once I got teary eyed… starting with Sydney walking down the aisle to her groom. I loved watching Eythan as his bride walked towards him… I love that he went from smiles to such a look of happiness realizing that he was getting ready to marry his best friend. I loved their vows, their dads praying over them and with them, the way they looked at one another the entire ceremony and I even loved the fist pump that Eythan gave at some point!! It was all beautiful!!! After the ceremony and family & bridal party portraits I had a chance to just spend time with Eythan & Sydney and y’all… I can’t tell you how much love these two have for one another… because it’s a lot!!! After a few portraits we headed up to the reception, where they joined their guests and had fun celebrating!!! Such a fun evening!!!
