Holly Tree Country Club – Greenville SC Wedding Photographer
Samuel & Dani

Today’s couple is one that is very close to my heart. I am overjoyed at finally being able to share with you this stunning Holly Tree Country Club wedding! Not only is this day so full of love and cool details, but it was also such an honor for me to be their Greenville SC wedding photographer because before Dani and Sam were my clients, they were my friends!

I was so happy to be able to join them for Sam’s surprise proposal to Dani, their engagement session, Dani’s Falls Park bridal session, and now be their Greenville, SC wedding photographer!

Dani incorporated so many incredible details into her day to make it just that much more unique and special. Things like a custom caplet on her gown inspired by Game of Thrones to her unique little dragon ring, every detail was well thought out and placed with great care. Sam started out the day with his guys. While we were photographing just them, I could tell he was just a bit nervous. But once he saw his bride and they said their vows, I noticed all of his nerves quickly went away. True love does that sort of thing, you know?

Truly, this beautiful Greenville, South Carolina wedding was perfect in every way, and I’m happy, as a Greenville SC wedding photographer, to be sharing with you Dani and Sam’s wedding! Enjoy!

Of course, you know I always already excited about this wedding because, well you know, PURPLE!! My girl Dani had the BEST details, y’all!

You see that lace above and below? This piece, along with a few others, are pieces of handmade lace that Dani’s great great grandmother stitched by hand over 100 years ago. Dani’s mom wrapped up her bouquet in a bit of lace and added a few pieces into her bouquet as little lace flowers. Such a beautiful way to commemorate her, wasn’t it?Jessica Hunt Wedding Photography Jessica Hunt Wedding Photography Lavender wedding Boutique of Dreams Bridal Gown Dimitra Designs Bridal Emporium Bridesmaid Dresses Jordan Tafta hair makeup

Dani’s mom, grandmother, sister, and girls all helped her into her gown before portraits. There were so many sweet moments between them! Holly Tree Country Club Wedding Holly Tree Country Club Wedding Jessica Hunt Wedding Photography Purple wedding Upstate SC Wedding Photographers Purple wedding Greenville SC wedding jordan hair and makeup greenville sc

I’m so happy Dani requested for me to set up and photograph the first look between her and her daddy because it was SUCH a sweet moment. He looked overjoyed at how stunning Dani was in her gown, and they shared a sweet hug before moving into portraits. These are some of my favorite moments from wedding days, so I’m incredibly overjoyed that Dani asked for us to take time to create this for her and her dad.

You’d never guess it, but while we were photographing these portraits under cover of the country club, it was POURING rain from one of those quick Southern thunderstorms that come through for about 20 minutes! Thankfully, Holly Tree could accommodate us and that the guys rocked out their portraits!wedding photographers greenville sc Holly Tree Country Club Greenville SC wedding photographer

And to Sam and Dani,

Sheesh, where do I even start, my friends? From your surprise proposal, Sam, to your bridal session, Dani, every image I was able to photograph of your love story was an honor. You two have such a special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to walk beside you both as you grow your family together. It’s been pure joy, and from the deepest part of my heart, thank you for trusting me with your memories. I could never repay you for the blessing you’ve been in my life throughout the past few years. I wish you both the best in everything you do and hope that your marriage will last a lifetime full of goodness, love, and maybe even a few dragons!

Jess

cheers
