Intimate Lace House at Arsenal Hill Wedding

I am thrilled to be showing off to you today this gorgeous intimate South Carolina wedding at the Lace House at Arsenal Hill. These South Carolina wedding photos feature Aryanna and Douglas’s intimate and magical wedding day. Here are a few of my favorite images from their Lace house at Arsenal Hill wedding that was planned and designed by Melanie Murphy of By Invitation Only event planning and design. This couple, this vendor team, and this venue all came together to create one of the most beautiful South Carolina wedding days I have had the pleasure of being a part of!

As with any wedding day we photograph, my team and I got started with the couple’s details. Both Aryanna and Doug have backgrounds in marketing and digital content creation, so it only made sense that every little detail of their wedding was perfect and planned. I spent a little bit of extra time putting together a few luxury flat lays of their invitation suite by Zola and details for these wedding photos to highlight their attention to detail and show off all of the things that they so expertly designed with help from their planner Melanie Murphy and their florist Valerie Brooks of Xpressions floral design.

Getting Ready for Their Wedding Day

After I photographed all of the pretty details with my team, we helped the couple prepare to see each other for the first time on their wedding day. The Lace House at Arsenal Hill provides such a gorgeous backdrop for both outdoor wedding photographs and indoor photos! The getting ready and preparation rooms within the house at Arsenal Hill are just to die for and so easy to photograph within.

Intimate Wedding Day First Look

After the couple had placed on all of their final touches, the JHP team coordinated the couple seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day! I absolutely adored Doug’s jump/spin turnaround to see Ary for the first time on their wedding day here in Columbia, South Carolina! His facial reaction to her wedding day look was just everything!

Antonia of Antonia Scott Beauty knocked it out of the park with Ary’s soft glam look and had her looking flawless for all of their Lace House wedding photos! Doug looked wonderful beside his bride in a blue suit and matching Jordan’s. Valerie from Xpressions Floral Design created a beautiful bouquet for Ary to carry. She also created a truly stunning floral arrangement for their patio ceremony at the Lace House at Arsenal Hill.

Both Melanie and Valerie worked together to execute a truly flawless concept and design for the couples intimate wedding ceremony on the patio at the Lace House at Arsenal Hill. I absolutely could not get over how gorgeous this ceremony framing arrangement was, either! The couple wanted to execute a day that was “#MagicallyMorgan” that embodied a whimsical, magical, and fairytale vibe. If you ask me, their incredible vendor team and professionals like Valerie and Melanie truly executed that vision!

The couple shared vows, exchanged rings, and sealed their promises with a kiss in front of just 33 guests in attendance! I have really come to adore intimate small weddings over the past few years, and this one was no different! They completed their wedding ceremony by jumping the broom, a sacred wedding tradition for African American couples in the United States.

The Blue 72

After the ceremony, the couple celebrated their wedding day even more by hiring Blue72S to pull onto the mansion mall of the Lace House at Arsenal Hill for more stunning photographs! While I was photographing the couple with this cute little blue convertible, Melanie and Valerie placed the final touches on the reception space and repurposed the ceremony space arrangements into the reception in a flawless way.

After we wrapped up the rest of their couples portraits, it was time for reception! As usual, Melanie Murphy of By invitation Only truly blew all of us away with her incredible design skills and arrangement of this reception space at the Lace House at Arsenal Hill. I absolutely love how she connected all of the guests to one another with one large table overflowing with florals, personalized details for each guest, and tons and tons of candles to create a romantic and whimsical evening.
