There wasn’t a cloud in the sky.
Ellis carefully stepped off the trolley and began to walk across the green grass of Furman University. The forecast had been pretty daunting all week long, with chances of rain in the 40% range. But that fact had long-since left her mind as the sun made its presence felt for the first time all week. It was almost like the weather broke just for them!
“Hey babe!,” Ellis shouted across the lawn to Matthew, who was awaiting his first view of the gorgeous woman he couldn’t wait to marry.
Matthew knew how much work and effort had gone into this day. Especially from Ellis. He knew the long days of planning. The ups and downs they had experienced along the way. The sacrifices made by family and friends to make this moment special. But his mind was fully focused on the joy and simultaneous nervous energy he was feeling!
Ellis touched Matthew’s shoulder. He turned. And in a moment, two wonderful people changed forever.
Guys, this wedding is one of our new favorites! Matthew & Ellis are the sweetest people! Even on the morning of the most exciting and most crazy day of their lives, they were so kind! Ryan texted Matthew a few hours before the first look to coordinate everything and Matthew took the time to thank Ryan for making all of this happen smoothly. And that’s just a tiny example of the kind of people Matthew & Ellis are! (See their engagement session here, by the way!)
On top of that, their wedding was a beautiful array of high-end classy style and perfectly thought-out details! If you need proof, there’s about 80 images below that will give you all the proof you need!
Matthew & Ellis, we know you are on your honeymoon. But we couldn’t wait to share these images! And when you get back and read this, we just want to say a few things. First of all, thank you. Thank you for trusting us through this journey. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be with you on your day! Second, you guys are a complete joy to work with and we wish you the best in your marriage! Hang out with us soon! And finally, we hope you enjoy this little peek into your wedding day! It was perfect!
