Good morning & HAPPY MONDAY! This past weekend we kicked off the beginning of our “fall” wedding season and it was definitely one for the record books. I woke up Saturday morning chatting with my mom over coffee about how we thought the day would run… Lots of pretty details, a show-stopping gown, a beautiful dedication to Travis’ late father and the SWEETEST first look. It was one wedding that definitely did not disappoint! I cannot WAIT to share the full story of their wedding day on Friday with everyone!! BUT for now, enjoy a few sneak peeks into Travis and Brooklyn’s wedding day! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Trout!!! xo

Riverwalk- Conway, South Carolina Engagement Session by Lauren Myers Photography

Happy Thursday! Meet Justin and Alex- two high school sweethearts who are tying the knot here in gorgeous South Carolina next October! Justin and Alex met through their church’s youth group and after much persistence on Justin’s end, they finally started dating! Justin proposed to Alex on Christmas day while exchanging gifts with Alex’s family. (A little background- Alex absolutely loves the Harry Pottery series so Justin wanted to incorporate that into his proposal) She began opening a long box, which she was told was from her cousin, and she immediately thought it was a wand! As she quickly opened the lid, sitting next to the wand in a little slit, sat the most gorgeous rose gold diamond ring. As she looked up she found Justin down on one knee asking her to be his wife! Seriously, how adorable are these two?! So creative and thoughtful!!

Eddie and I spent Sunday evening exploring the Riverwalk in Conway, South Carolina with these two! Conway is Justin’s hometown so it was only appropriate to photograph around the gorgeous town he grew up in. It was the perfect Sunday in the South- soft warm light, the downtown charm and Spanish moss heaven! This is one engagement session that stole my heart from the beginning! I hope you absolutely love these two as much as I do.. Alex & Justin, I cannot WAIT for your wedding next fall! Congratulations again! xo

AH! I am so unbelievably happy to be sharing this post with everyone today! Meet Nick & Cassie! A little background about these two… I have known Nick since I was in middle school. Nick, Eddie and I actually went to the same summer camp when we were little (even though they don’t believe me that I was there) and now we all live in South Carolina minutes from one another! Nick & Cassie are Bridgewater College sweethearts and they tied the knot a year ago, yesterday! These two are expecting their little girl, Riley, within the next month and I couldn’t be more excited to meet her!! Last Thursday we spent the evening wandering around our favorite spots to visit in Surfside Beach while capturing their maternity portraits. I couldn’t be more excited for these two. Congratulations Nick and Cassie!

Hi y’all! Finally, another Gnip Wedding Wednesday post!! This past weekend Eddie and I spent the weekend in Maryland celebrating not only my 27th birthday but also my bridal shower. (Can you believe we are tying the knot in 64 days?!) We spent Friday evening with my parents and best friends at Old Westminster Winery enjoying two of my favorite things- wine and pizza! It was the perfect warm summer evening that ended with some night swimming and a serious cake fight (Sorry Mom!) Saturday we celebrated Eddie and I starting this marriage journey together at my bridal shower (#futuremrsgnip) It was a Kate Spade themed bridal shower that my girls did an AMAZING job planning. All the little details were taken care of and they even surprised me with the most incredible gift (See the video below to find out what they got me!) It was a weekend that left my heart incredibly full and my eyes filled with so many happy tears. Thank you again to everyone who made this weekend so perfect. Bring on, October!!!

Happy Friday everyone! I am so thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous wedding because these two newlyweds hold an extra special place in my heart. I met Emily a few years ago because her and I share the same best friend, Lindsay! From the moment I met Emily I could tell why Lindsay had raved so much about her- she has the kindest heart, genuine to the core and absolutely HILARIOUS. Then came along Kevin… An absolute perfect fit for Emily! Seriously you should see the way he looks at her (It made me tear up numerous times!) These two tied the knot at Liberty Mountain Resort this past Saturday and despite it being the hottest day of the year – the day couldn’t have been any more perfect! Their wedding day was filled with fluffy white bouquets, shades of purple and views of gorgeous rolling country side. I couldn’t be happier for these two and I know you will fall in love with them just as much as I have! Congratulations Kevin & Emily!! xo
