An Everlasting Love

It’s chemistry class your freshman year of college and your professor pairs you up with the cutest lab partner. You lock eyes for the first time and it’s love at first sight! Sounds like a movie, huh? Well, it’s actually the beginning of Austin and Brianne’s love story!

These two ended up becoming more than chemistry partners and have spent the past 8 years building a beautiful life together! We appreciate this couple because they knew exactly the type of wedding experience they wanted to curate. With a modest guest list, a charming county park ceremony, a reception restaurant takeover and lots of cool accessories — they had a wedding day perfectly unique to them.

The ceremony was held in Laurel Hill County Park, a hidden gem in Mount Pleasant with incredible wildlife and coastal vistas. The guests took their seats facing a cascading avenue of stunning oak trees. Little munchkin boys in suspenders and little girls in blue dresses patiently waited to debut the aisle and sprinkle the ground with white rose petals. Music began to play and Brianne made her way over to Austin, her billowing white gown contrasting beautifully against the green backdrop. Austin was overtaken with emotion as his serene bride approached him. Hand in hand they professed their everlasting love to one another and turned the page to start a new chapter as Mr. and Mrs. Lewandowski!

After the ceremony, the wedding party ventured west to the Charleston peninsula for cocktails and bites. We stole away with the couple to take wedding portraits in the Historic District of downtown. For two people who claim they aren’t very comfortable being photographed, Brianne and Austin completely charmed the camera! We adore the look of Brianne’s voluminous wedding skirt on the cobblestone streets of downtown, her retro heart shaped sunglasses adding a playful element. Austin looked dapper and timeless in his club master sunglasses, with his cufflinks engraved with their fur babies’ faces reflecting the summer sun.

Next destination, Parcel 32! This eclectic restaurant seamlessly ties together funky, modern Art Deco with the Old South. It was the perfect place for this couple to have their intimate wedding celebration. The wedding party drank colorful cocktails and dined on local lettuces, New York strip and wedding cake decorated with white roses and Veronica flowers. The couple sat at the sweetheart table, radiating with a newlywed glow, as the honorary guests gave their speeches and a professional Irish dancer graced the party with a flurry of fast moves (which per Irish tradition means the couple will have lots of children!).

After dinner we gathered on the top floor for the couple’s grand entrance and first dance. Austin twirled Brianne around like a swing dancing champion. In her breezy sweetheart dress and white sneakers, she looked swept away into bliss. Soon after, everyone else joined in, showing off their best moves for the disposable camera and camcorder that was floating around. No other group was having as much fun dancing above King Street than this crowd.

It was such a pleasure venturing around Charleston with Brianne and Austin, capturing their unforgettable first day as husband and wife. We wish you a lifetime of everlasting love!
