The O’Donnell House wedding pictures
Daquan & Meghan

Meghan and Daquan were married on a beautiful September day outside The O’Donnell House in Sumter, South Carolina. I had the incredible honor of being this wonder couple’s South Carolina wedding photographer and documenting their memories in these beautiful South Carolina wedding pictures. I am excited to show off their gorgeous wedding photos from this O’Donnell House wedding and tell you more about their memories!

Wedding Day Details

The couple decided to not see each other prior to their ceremony, and this allowed me time to photograph their separate details and getting ready moments within the O’Donnell house.

I absolutely adored the aesthetics of Meghan and Daquan’s invitation suite t and how their wedding details all came together. Doesn’t this beautiful set up just make these blues pop?

Getting Ready with Friends & Family

Meghan prepared for her wedding day with her mother and a few of her bridesmaids. Her groom prepared for his day with his best man, and they shared a moment with Daquan blindfolded prior to the ceremony. Meghan wanted to ensure that she and Daquan could share a reveal moment from either side of the aisle during their ceremony, but wanted to still be able to give her groom a hug prior to it. SO, we tossed a blindfold on Daquan for them to hug and share a few moments together before their South Carolina wedding ceremony.

Blindfolded First Look

Emotional Daddy-Daughter First Look

Meghan and her father have a very close relationship, and she asked if we could set up a First Look between her father and her, as well. Of course, we obliged and snapped some of the sweetest moments between Meghan and her father as he saw her for the first time in her wedding gown. Get a tissue ready as you scroll!

Bride and Groom with Separate Wedding Parties

After that, I photographed both the bride and the groom with their respective wedding parties and prepared for their beautiful O’Donnell house wedding ceremony with my team. Alexis, JHP’s associate and affordable wedding photographer, joined me for this gorgeous day and provided many of the images you’re seeing today from their gallery.

Megan and Daquan shared handwritten vows and sweet moments in front of their family and friends during their ceremony. I absolutely love how their planner Jevettra with Avila Dawn Events helped guide them into having such a beautiful ceremony space and celebration overall. American Floral provided some truly gorgeous florals to compliment the whole day, as well.

After the ceremony, the couple, their wedding party, and I all spend some time together photographing more of their South Carolina wedding pictures. I absolutely adore how Meghan and Daquan look together in their Columbia wedding pictures! The light filtering in behind them and their flawless outfits just make some of these frames some my very favorite South Carolina wedding photos I’ve ever photographed!

After we wrapped up with their portraits together as a couple, we moved into a beautifully designed reception for the rest of their evening! Jevettra from Avila Dawn Events did an incredible job putting together this beautiful couples’ decor and reception space. I don’t think the O’Donnell House was has ever looked this good!

Sparkler Exit to End the Night

We wrapped up the night as weddings usually do, with a few sparklers! Meghan and Daquan kissed for a few romantic exit photos and ended their night with a bang!
