Intimate Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens Wedding
I’m so excited to share with you Megan and Calvin’s Botanical Gardens wedding and all their memories hear in Columbia South Carolina. Megan and Calvin are such a wonderful pair, and I adored being their wedding photographer. I want to take a moment to walk you through their intimate Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens wedding and show you all of their beautiful moments and memories.
Getting Ready for their Wedding Day
As you normally do, we begin the day with photographing the couple’s details. After capturing a few images of the bride’s dress and their invitation suite, Megan got ready for their day and first look.
Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens Intimate First Look
It was so incredibly sweet to witness Megan and Calvin sharing their first look on their wedding day. They chose to read letters back to back that they wrote to each other before seeing one another in their wedding day. I love to document moments like these so much!
Botanical Gardens Wedding Photos
Then we began to explore the Botanical Gardens grounds for portraits of Megan and Calvin together as a couple. The Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens is such a perfect venue to photograph couples on their wedding day or for engagement sessions because this location is just so stunning!
We spent a good bit of time working together with the couple’s small wedding party, family, and a very cute rainbow umbrella Megan brought along prior to their ceremony.
I absolutely adore when couples choose to move forward with the first look before completing all of their portraits, yes even family, before their ceremony. It allows for a couple to enjoy their photos more stress-free, and for everyone to get to the reception more quickly after the ceremony!

Botanical Gardens Magnolia Room Intimate Reception
Megan and Calvin celebrated with their friends and family in an intimate reception within the Magnolia Room at the Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens. They shared an incredibly sweet first dance as a newly married couple, enjoyed toasts from their wedding party members to them, and just being around friends and family for a bit.
We ended the night with a few photos in the light rain with Megan’s super cute rainbow umbrella.
I hope you enjoyed this look into Megan and Calvin’s Riverbanks Zoo Botanical Gardens wedding! Megan and Calvin were such a joy to work with them photograph, and I absolutely loved being their South Carolina wedding photographer.
