Mallory and Mike’s spring wedding at Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens was about as perfect as it can get! As you enter the property, you drive under the Avenue of Oaks with evenly spaced rows of live oak trees draped in Spanish moss. One of my favorite parts of the day was their ceremony, which was under these epic trees. As they said their vows to each other through tear filled eyes, the sunlight hit the moss, making it shimmer and glow – so magical! Mallory is passionate about nature, animals, and plants, so this setting was significant to her. Their golden retriever, Covey, made a special appearance as he stood with Mike and the groomsmen during their ceremony. He was such a good boy, and it was adorable seeing him up there with them!
Their reception was at Boone Hall’s Cotton Dock, which has views of the marsh and river as well as the golden sun setting over the water. There were two chandeliers covered in gorgeous florals paired with coordinating table flowers that complimented Mallory’s bouquet. I loved the mix of shades of pink! And their favorite pup Covey was featured by naming a specialty drink after him!
These two met at Clemson University and are huge Clemson fans, so it was only fitting that we gathered all the fellow Clemson Alumni for a photo! Mallory and her friends have had this fun tradition where they each drop little fake alligators into each others’ drinks. Mallory kept finding them in her drink and went home with a pocket full of them!
I was so honored to be part of Mallory and Mike’s special day, documenting all the special moments with family and friends, and also now know that any time I have a question about an alligator or other animal, I can call Mallory for help!
