Fall wedding at Twigs

We love fall weddings for so many reasons, colorful trees, great weather for an outdoor wedding (a nice reprieve from the heat and humidity of Summer) and Twigs Tempietto was just right for Trevor and Kim’s Fall wedding. We started with photos of the guys at the Greenville Marriott before going over to the Twigs wedding venue to meet Kim and her bridesmaids.

Kim was enjoying spending time with her bridesmaids and drinking champagne in the bride’s house at Twigs. We got a few photos of the bridesmaids in their blue chambray shirts before they put on their bridesmaids dresses.

Kim is obviously close with her dad. He was overjoyed to see his daughter in her dress and veil before the wedding.

Not only is a first look with the bride and groom a great idea for pictures, especially in late October when there is less time for daylight, it allows the bride and groom to spend more time TOGETHER on their wedding day.

Kim was stunning in her wedding gown! The sun was beginning to go down and we had some great natural light in the field across the street from the wedding venue for some golden hour photos.

I’ve seen lots of great ideas for brides to sew significant things into the inside of their wedding dress, but this one I had never seen before. Kim had sewn the bonnet Trevor wore as a baby into the inside of her wedding dress!

Those red bridesmaid dresses really pop against the tall grass field in the background. Excellent color choice for a Fall wedding!

So, why exactly does the groom not carry a bouquet on the wedding day? I guess he can! It was a rather heavy bouquet, so I’m sure Kim was glad to have him hold it for a few minutes.

Then there’s this…

I think someone is happy to be married! Kim couldn’t wipe that smile off her face all day long.

Her amazing voice and electric personality are just a couple of the many reasons we LOVE Erica Berg! She’s more than just a great wedding DJ. She has a way of being engaging in front of a crowd at a wedding without stealing the show from the bride…a perfect balance.

Twigs truely is a turnkey wedding venue. Not only can the facilities accommodate anything you need on your wedding day, they create the floral arrangements and provide the catering…which is EXCELLENT by the way!

Charlotte was a huge help to David & Kristina at this wedding! Charlotte and I (David) thought it would be cool to each take a turn at photographing the wedding rings in a completely different style. I also thought it would be fun to get a behind-the-scenes shot of Charlotte and Kristina setting up the “girl” version of the ring shot, and I went and set up the “guy” version of the same shot…look how different they are!

The cake was made and designed by Trevor’s good friend and fellow chef, Amanee Neirouz. It was also a nice touch to have Trevor and Kim’s parents’ wedding photos with their wedding cakes on the cake table display. How wedding styles sure have changed over the years!

This father/daughter dance is one for the books…I told you these two were close. One of the most fun parent dances we’ve photographed all year!

A little fun creating some streaking lights in the background…some special effects created by using a slow shutter speed on the camera.

Charlotte and I, shooting at the same time, each captured different angles of the same moment…we didn’t realize the other person was shooting the same thing at the time.

Yes I (David) like to do a little “dancing” of my own at wedding receptions.
