Sometimes the weather just doesn’t want to cooperate, and in this case Hurricane Joaquin reared its ugly head throughout most of South Carolina.  However, a little morning rain didn’t put much of a damper on Diego and Cynthia’s wedding day!

The view was still quite pretty for their wedding ceremony at Pretty Place.  Symmes Chapel sits atop the mountain at YMCA’s Camp Greenville, with a beautiful vista of the surrounding mountains. The bride and groom are both very passionate about each other and life in general. We’re so glad we got to document their special day and witness their inner “superhero personalities” (scroll down to see the Batman/Catwoman cake) join forces in celebration with friends and family at their Table Rock Lodge reception.

The day started with the bridal party getting ready at the cabins at Table Rock State Park. There was still a little light rain, so we grabbed a couple umbrellas (thanks to a very prepared bride 🙂 for the first look.

By the time we got to Symmes Chapel (Pretty Place), the rain had completely stopped, and we enjoyed a beautiful view of the fog lifting from the surrounding mountains as the backdrop to Diego and Cynthia’s Pretty Place Wedding ceremony.

After the ceremony, we drove back down the mountain for some photos at the Visitor’s Center at Table Rock.

Wedding Reception at Table Rock Lodge

Diego and Cynthia were introduced and had their first dance as husband and wife at the Table Rock Lodge. Something we don’t see very often, but that turned out to be very beautiful, was bubbles during the first dance. Coca-Cola was a big theme element, and glass bottled Coke was used during the toasts to the bride and groom.
