A Romantic Floral Wedding at The Bleckley Inn Chloe + Jeffrey | Anderson, SC


Goodness, I truly don’t know where to begin with how much I absolutely LOVED Chloe and Jeffrey’s wedding day. I met these two cuties for their engagement session in Savannah a few months ago, and their joy was contagious the entire shoot! I knew their wedding day at Bleckley Inn would be no different. From the moment I arrived to the bridal suite until the sparkler exit almost 12 hours later…every moment was just BRIMMING with smiles and giggles! Chloe and Jeffrey are a special kind of couple. You can just FEEL their love any time you are around them…and the same goes for their entire families. Over 200 guests came to celebrate their beautiful love story, and it was a PARTY!

I traveled to Anderson, SC to photograph Chloe and Jeffrey’s wedding, and I LOVED the challenge of finding beautiful portait locations in a new place! One of the best parts about this day is that Jeffrey’s mom, Sharon, is an amazing photographer herself – so I went into this day knowing that they trusted me fully and completely. It allowed me to feel confident in being creative, and we created some STUNNING images as a result!! I have SO many favorites from this day!!!

Chloe and Jeffrey: thank you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to capture your love. It was an HONOR to say the least! I loved getting to celebrate you with all of your favorite people, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites! Soak up every second of your honeymoon and have SO much fun!!!

The sweetest first look with her bridesmaids!

The father-daughter first look had EVERYONE in tears!!!

Chloe and Jeffrey wanted to share a “first touch” instead of a first look…they exchanged private vows around a corner before seeing each other when Chloe came down the aisle!


Would you believe me if I said these were taken on the side of a parking lot? Across from an abandoned building? The light was just SO good!

The most STUNNING and detailed reception!! Those floral installations!

Hahaha!! The best garter toss shot!

Outfit change!!! LOVING this trend lately of a fun reception and party dress!

Late night snack of Chick-Fil-A and Taco Bell! YES!

A private last dance…so sweet!
