Kaitlin & Andrew’s Lion’s Gate Manor Wedding | Spartanburg Wedding Photographer

A few weeks prior to the wedding day Kaitlin messaged me and told me that they had decided they wanted to do a first look on their wedding day and while I know those kind of changes mean flipping things around in a timeline… it also meant they would get to spend most of their wedding day together and that is one of the big reasons I love first looks.  As I was taking Andrew to the places where he & Kaitlin would do their first look it was obvious that Andrew was all sorts of excited and nervous but y’all the second he saw his bride he radiated happiness!!  Andrew & Kaitlin spent the next few minutes soaking it all in and admiring one another and then we had fun taking portraits!!!

Kaitlin & Andrew were married a few feet from the spot where Andrew proposed which I think was super awesome and soo soo special!!  I love that Lion’s Gate holds two very special days for them!!  Andrew was all smiles as Kaitlin walked down the aisle and throughout the entire ceremony both of them were the sweetest in the way they looked at one another!!  After their ceremony the two of them spent the evening surrounded by family & friends and celebrated and it was soo soo fun getting to document it all!!!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding day!!!
