To say we were excited for Kate and Anthony’s wedding would be an understatement. Not only are they a part of a favorite Root Lifer family, but this photo was from their engagement session and it was maybe my favorite photo I’ve ever taken!
And today is an extra special day to blog these guys, because 5 years ago today, we photographed her sister’s wedding! :) Throwback photo time to my favorite siblings!
Kate and Anthony were married in Greenville, SC, and Kate got ready in her parents’ gorgeous home. I looooove getting ready photos at home, but especially when that home has huge windows, gorgeous views, and a million backdrop opportunities. :)
Latia of Cotton Rouge and Company did such a great job with Kate’s hair and makeup! :)
Nate’s favorite part of wedding photos at home? When the family dog makes their appearance! :)
2018 is officially the year I’ve fallen in love with illusion straps on wedding dresses! I was so enamored with Kate’s dress- Watters Azriel! <3
Kate’s floral was done by Urban Petals, a company I wish would move down here. Not only was their floral a true work of art, but Kate’s sweet mom works with them. And I loved the owner, Anna- My only complaint was I didn’t get much time to visit with her! :)
I honestly don’t know if I love this view or these girls more. <3
Before we knew it, it was off to meet Anthony at the Cliffs at Glassy Chapel, one of our faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite wedding venues, for their first look!
This photo by Nate is one of my favorites. <3
Kaaaaaate! You made a stunning bride! :)
Next favorite! :)
Nate’s view on the left, mine on the right. :)
Kate walked down the aisle to “When You Wish Upon a Star.” <3
Our last wedding at the Cliffs involved a snoring pug ring bearer, and this one, a yawning one, lol. :)
We made sure to grab some photos of Kate’s siblings with their significant others. You know.. To use in blog posts when THEY get married. ;)
Next it was down the mountain and off to The Cabin at The Cliffs at Mountain Park for their cozy reception. <3
I looooooved this venue for a wedding reception. The family style tables, the fireplace.. They even had games for everyone to play outside and s’mores by the firepit! :)
First dance to “You Matter to Me” from Waitress on Broadway. :)
Anthony, this is my favorite photo of you! Pure bliss. :)
Nate’s view followed by mine for their sparkler exit. <3
Last but not least, our Root selfie with both Root couples. <3 Kate and Anthony, where do I even begin?! Thank you for bringing us up for your wedding!! And Palermo family, thank you for loving us like your own. We so hope to see y’all again soon!!!!
