West Manor Estate Wedding | Shelby + Chris

Shelby + Chris’ wedding is one I will never forget.  Just 2 DAYS before the wedding, Shelby + her planning team CHANGED VENUES!!!  Bella Rose Plantation was a wet, muddy mess because of the weather, so the couple opted to make some changes.  I know Shelby was thrilled with the decision, and I have to say — I definitely agree with her!!!  West Manor Estate is one of my favorite venues, and it was a JOY to photograph another wedding on this beautiful property.

Shelby, being a wedding coordinator herself, worked with Entwined Events to plan a GORGEOUS wedding!  This girl was in the details.  Cute, creative, and sentimental touches were all over the place!  One of my favorite parts about Shelby + Chris’ big day was the way in which they chose to honor Shelby’s brother, an honorary Groomsman, who passed away less than two years ago.  The family had a seat reserved for him, in line with the Groomsmen, with a flower from Shelby’s bouquet.  He was remembered and honored in such beautiful ways.

One more thing I am a little obsessed with, and then I promise — on to the photos.  Every year for birthday + Christmas gifts, Shelby’s dad gifted her pearls.  On her wedding day, he presented her with a strand of those pearls for her to wear as she walked down the aisle.  GIVE ME GOOSEBUMPS WHYDONTCHA.  Shelby + her dad have a very special relationship, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t get a little weepy.

OKAY!  Here are some of my favorite pictures from Saturday!  Shelby + Chris, thank you SO much for welcoming me into your lives, and trusting me with you perfect day.  It has been a joy getting to know you.  Now go on and enjoy that honeymoon!!!  xoxo!
