Allen and Mary | Edisto Beach, SC Wedding Photographer

They met in the coastal region of SC, so why not have a wedding on the coast as well?!  Allen and Mary had a small, intimate wedding at Edisto Beach, SC on August 12, 2012.  They were joined by a very close group of family and friends to witness and celebrate their wedding!  I just LOVE weddings like this where the focus truly is on what it should be– the marriage!

Upon my arrival to Edisto Island as the wedding photographer, one thing I couldn’t wait to document for Allen and Mary was how the infamous Edisto Mystery Tree had been decorated; this tree has been on the island for as long as I can remember! Growing up, every summer we vacationed to Edisto Beach where I soon learned as a child that this is one of Edisto Island’s beloved landmarks!  So I had to take a picture.:) Apparently it was still decorated from July 4th!

The marsh at Botany Bay before making my way totally to Edisto Beach.  Kind of stormy, eek.
