Check out this beautiful Furman Wedding! We’re so happy for our good friends, Robert and Jessica who tied the knot at Daniel Chapel at Furman University. They had their wedding reception at Green Valley Country Club.

After being introduced by a mutual friend, these two decided it wasn’t all that hard to look past each other’s college football allegiances. He a Clemson grad and she a (much smarter) Carolina grad, hit it off when they discovered they had quite a few things in common including country music and their love of dogs. It wasn’t long before Robert surprised her with ring while they were visiting New York City. Overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge at night was a great spot for a proposal.

Robert and I (David) have been great friends since high school, so I was excited when he asked me to be in his wedding. When he asked me about photographing the wedding, I wanted to make sure that he got the best photography possible, but also that I got to celebrate with him on the wedding day. 

This was one of those rare occasions where David actually got to play both photographer and groomsman (mostly groomsman) while Kristina did most of the photography. Our good friend Carter helped us out with the photography so we could enjoy our friends’ wedding and not miss a thing.

David thought it was quite an honor that he had the privilege of seating the mother of the groom!

Two things make this shot great: Jessica’s brother is hugging her and congratulating her just after the wedding, and Robert is doing what all grooms do when they feel the wedding ring on their finger for the first time.

Even though I was primarily a groomsman, that didn’t stop me from carrying a few cameras around!
