Amanda’s Anniversary Surprise at the Pavilion at Patriots Point

Amanda Assey Lewis of Southern Chic Weddings got a HUGE surprise from her hubby yesterday.  J  Tim planned an elaborate evening, including a stop at the Pavilion at Patriots Point, which is where they were married one year ago.  He’d arranged for a white linen table setting with Champaigne and a “fresh” replica of their cake topper to be placed out on the green overlooking Charleston Harbor.  I got there ahead of time, stashed a remote camera on one side of the table, and hid in the bushes with my 400mm lens on the other.  Feeling a little voyeristic, but knowing I had all the angles covered, I waited!  Amanda was totally surprised by the whole thing and we had a good laugh when I came out of the bushes afterwards.  Since it was right at sunset, we took advantage of the dramatic light and did a few portraits to commemorate the occasion before they headed off to dinner.  Tim really raised the bar for the rest of us married men!  Well done, sir!!!  And CONGRATULATIONS to you both on your 1-year Anniversary!!!  Many thanks to my friend and colleague, Liz Duren, for letting me in on the “secret”.
