Many of you may remember Chad & Holly’s incredible wedding day story from October 2013. Chad was in a car accident the day of the wedding and fractured his L1 Vertebrae. But they were still able to say I Do that day. To read more of that story and view the wedding day images click here http://www.richbell.com/for-better-or-worse-in-sickness-and-in-health-chad-hollys-incredible-wedding-day-2/
Well it was about five months after the wedding, and we were able to go out to Boone Hall Plantation for their wedding photos! It was an absolutely gorgeous day. Holly wore her dress again (and WOW, Mell Bell and I remembered immediately why we loved it, she looks amazing). Chad was able to wear the suit that he was unable to wear at their wedding. Chad is doing great! His back is still healing and he has gone back to work. They both are so in love and it shows in every photo how grateful that are that Chad survived the crash ON HIS WEDDING DAY and that their love has great even more through this!

It may sound cliche, but every day is truly a gift!
This sweet couple with very sweet families celebrated their wedding day in a relaxed but traditional style. Fun times!
Jesalyn & Rich are getting married in a few weeks! So glad they wanted to do their engagement shoot at Boone Hall Plantation! The flower field at the front of the Plantation had just bloomed and looked absolutely gorgeous! Very excited to be a part of their wedding soon!
Leslie & Ed are such a sweet couple to spend time with. They LOVE each other. The way the talk about it each, look at each other, it truly shows. When then came in for their consult, Ed brought tears to my eyes talking about Leslie. I can not wait to see them say their vows, it will be a beautiful day!
Stephanie & Jeremy wanted their wedding to be a celebration of their new life together with their family and friends. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Charleston. Summerall was beautifully illuminated in a shade of purple be the sun shining through the stained glass windows, which was amazing since the wedding colors included purple. I wonder if Stephanie planned it that way And OMG, CHECK OUT THEIR CAKE!
Michelle is absolutely adorable! Her and Justin have been together since high school. Since it has been a long time in coming they really just wanted their special day to be a time to spend with each other and their family members. They had personalized Jones Sodas, which were absolutely awesome! Love, love, love it!

I love Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, the house, the grounds, the trees, the pond and fountain, all great features! Alicia spent a lot of time working on wedding details from the center pieces to the signs, with acorns everywhere. It was a gorgeous fall day and their details represented it! Instead of your typical sand ceremony, Alicia and Steven did an Acorn Ceremony, mixing together acorns from his home town and her home town. The cake was gorgeous with a basket weave icing and flowers on top. And since Steven works in the food industry, I knew the food would be awesome… and IT WAS! It was the first time I have ever seen a Grilled Cheese Station! Even the moon looked amazing, as the sun went down. Truly a great day, for a sweet couple!
I met with Megan in November 2011 to talk with her about her wedding. And like most of my clients, we clicked. When we met and did their Engagement shoot at Magnolia Plantation earlier this year, it was my first time meeting Cisco. I promised not to make him do anything cheesy, which I think made him feel better about it! Megan’s bridal portrait session almost was rained out, but thankfully the weather cleared up and the sky looked beautiful at Boone Hall. So when their wedding day came, we had already spent a lot of time together which made it feel more like I was fortunate enough to be shooting a dear friend’s wedding. The flowers at The Island House were all in bloom and butterflies were flying around everywhere! Everyone had a fabulous time singing karaoke at the reception! The sunset set at The Island House is always amazing and this night was no exception! Congratulations Megan & Cisco, you guys rock!
I sincerely cannot say enough about how everything about this wedding was perfect! The night before the wedding I photographed the rehearsal dinner at Cottage on the Creek. It was really great to meet all of Ellen and Ryan’s friends and family. Everyone was very kind and I enjoyed spending the evening with them, especially on such a gorgeous night. The next day the weather was just as amazing! Ellen and Ryan chose to have their ceremony under the other large tree by the water (which was the first time I have seen it set up there, and I loved it). Hanging in the center of the aisle, from the tree was a beautiful chandelier. The sun shining through the moss during the ceremony made the setting even more fantastic. Ryan’s family is the name sake for the Wynkoop Beer Company, so there was plenty on hand, as well as the story for everyone to read. The only place suited for their night shot had to be back at the ceremony site, and I think it was a great ending to their picture perfect day!
