You know those memes that say, “Find a man who looks at you the way so and so does?” Well that could have totally originated with Bryson and Alex. Because you guys. The way Bryson grins at Alex anytime she is within his eyesight is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. It’s one of those toothy grins that lights up his entire face. Take one look at these photos and you’ll see exactly what I mean. He definitely wins the award for happiest groom seeing his future wife approach down the aisle.

Walking into Alex’s getting ready cottage on the property of Pepper Plantation in Mount Pleasant, right outside of Charleston, the tone was set for the day. Alex’s mom, who was serving as the Maid of Honor, her two besties, Kelsey and Emily, and her “Aunt” Belinda were gathered around the bride playing early 2000s throwbacks and we talked about the Jonas Brothers comeback as they recalled stories of winning concert tickets from the radio when they were younger.  They reminded me  SO much of me, my sister, and our friends, except for the fact that I have a few years on them, so my boy band of choice was *NSYNC, rather than Nick, Joe, and Kevin. No matter what though,  I can appreciate a good teeny bopper throw back.

The two were married in front of a lake on the sprawling property, but it was the reception that really got the party started. It included the bride and her girls joining the band on the tambourine and cow bell and a Grandmother who was THERE for it!! Said grandmother also hit the dance floor like nobody’s business, which was definitely a high light of the night. The newlyweds nieces and nephews also stole the show dancing with the guests and managed to be the MOST well behaved little ones despite a super long day for them. All in all the vibe was just one of great fun, which reflected the bride and groom perfectly.

Alex and Bryson,  the two of you clearly have something so special. It’s the kind of thing others look at and think to themselves, “I want a relationship like that.” Its so obvious by just observing the two of you around each other, and it’s the type of thing that is built to last. I am so thankful to have witnessed it and be able to give you some memories of your wedding day to hold on to. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. I will never forget it!
