Are you ready to experience pure and utter JOY? Well, Ariel and Shane will give you all of it! These two never got a chance to do their engagement session, so that is why you have never seen them on the blog before. When a couple does not have the ability to book their engagement session, I do always worry that the couple might be a little nervous about meeting me, but oh man…. Ariel and Shane were so comfortable in front of the camera. They were up for anything at any time and had full trust in me without even meeting me in person before. They were so easy to make laugh. The joy that radiates from Ariel will just bring a smile to everyones face and heart. Her love for animals is enough to express how kind, caring, and amazing she is. The way that Shane looks at her brings tears to me eyes. He gets her more than anyone else. Some other big stars of the day were Bella and Winston which are Ariel and Shanes children (puppies). These dogs are probably the most well behaved puppies I have ever seen. I think Winston barking as Ariel was walking down the isle had to be my favorite part of the wedding day.
This beautiful day started inside of the Westin where Ariel and her bridesmaid were having such a relaxing time hanging out watching her beautiful wedding day be put together. The first look at the Six Oaks in Sea Pines was the sweetest moment. Their ceremony came and they both said I do on the beach surrounded by their closest family and friends. The day ended under the twinkle lights of the Ocean Front Deck at the Westin on Hilton Head Island. Ariel and Shane, It was such a pleasure being apart of your special day. I will never forget the pure joy and kindness that you showed all of your vendors, friends and family. I wish you two the happiest marriage!
Thank you to all of these incredible vendors who made this day happen!
