It’s hard to put into words how special it was for us to be a part of Sommer & Frank’s AMAZING wedding celebration at the Greek Orthodox Church of The Holy Trinity!!! Several years ago, we had the honor of photographing Sommer’s sister’s wedding with Trent at Old Wide Awake Plantation. Their entire family has become very special to us over the years. So you can imagine our excitement when Sommer and Frank asked us to photograph their wedding too!
With Sommer working in Japan for much of it, the planning and preparations for their wedding took over a year. But the Big Day finally arrived…and it was gorgeous! As the wedding party began getting ready, the excitement in the air was palpable. I loved all the little details and special moments that made Frank & Sommer’s wedding unique…a first look with her dad, special gifts for the flower girl and ring bearer, the sword ceremony, and a huge wedding party that was so fun and supportive of these two! The Greek Orthodox ceremony was also unique and afforded so many wonderful photo opportunities. It’s such a beautiful church anyway…but it’s hard to get a bad shot with such an adorable couple, right?!? Being a Citadel Grad, the wedding was followed by a traditional sword ceremony, performed by a great group of cadets. Then it was off to the reception, which was held at the Daniel Island Club. I love the beautiful “lowcountry” scenery behind the club. Frank, Sommer, and I took advantage of the setting (and the setting sun) to capture some romantic photos of them. Then it was inside for the PARTAAAY of the century! Sommer had warned me to make sure I brought my “Greek dancing shoes”…and she wasn’t kidding! A grand entrance, a delicious meal, touching toasts, and of course non-stop dancing all night long topped the day off in high spirits!
