Columbia, South Carolina Wedding Photographer
Alanti and Charles were married on a warm December day at 701 Whaley in Columbia, South Carolina. They had such a stunning wedding day. Alanti’s visions beautifully came to life thanks to all of her vendors. As a Columbia, South Carolina wedding photographer, I was so pleased to capture every moment on their beautifully crafted wedding day. Shall we walk through their wedding day together?
These details and colors were December done right. All the warmth within Alanti and Charles’ wedding details truly translated to their amazing personalities. These unique florals crafted by Valerie with Xpressions only added further to the beauty of these details! Just see for yourself. One amazing unique touch to this wedding day was Alanti’s dress crafted and designed by Cylinda Nesmith Davison. It looked gorgeous hanging up at 701 Whaley.
It’s clear to see how ready this couple was for their first look and to get married with these getting ready shots. The anticipation was building and I know these love birds were ready to get their romance in motion. Charles’ stepped into his lovely green tux and Alanti slid into her dress with the help of her mother. These two couldn’t wait to be married.

Deep breaths. Alanti was ready to show her wedding day look to her man! With a tap on the shoulder, Charles turned around to see his beaming bride and was more than pleased. I can’t say enough how beautiful this couple is. A first look moment is a MUST HAVE in your wedding day. It’s an easy segway into gorgeous portraits like these.

The Wedding Ceremony
Valerie with Xpressions outdid herself again when designing this modern arch. Her warm florals set the tone for the romance to begin. Their Columbia, South Carolina wedding photography couldn’t have looked as gorgeous without a team of vendors to set the tone like they did for Alanti and Charles’ wedding ceremony. Alanti was escorted by her father down the aisle to say I Do to Charles. They exchanged their vows and had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by everyone they love.
It couldn’t have been more sweet and intimate.
The Reception Decor
Family photos and couple’s photos surrounded the room so you could really feel the love. I always love the uniqueness in honoring your past loved ones and present loved ones in your wedding day. Weddings are about two becoming one and I adore the represented unity. Each table had it’s own set of beautiful florals and glasswear to really stun each guest. An exquisite cake made by Gardenia Custom Cakes & Catering sat in the corner of the dining ball room, ready to be cut. This reception decor was ready to be utilized!
Alanti and Charles entered their reception and got straight into dancing. Their first dances excited everyone and you could feel the loving energy fill the room. Dinner was catered by the amazing Rodney Scott’s BBQ and the night was really bumpin! This reception wasn’t one to forget. With the help of Family and JW Bartending, it was a perfect evening. The couple exited with sparklers and the rest was history!
