It was over a year-and-a-half ago that Mary Frances and I were talking about wedding dates. She was very specific about the venues and timing that she wanted. She’s always dreamed of a ceremony at Daniel Chapel and is a member at Poinsett Club. We finally landed on December 2, 2017 for their one-of-a-kind wedding day!
After photographing their day, I can see why Mary Frances put an emphasis on the elements she knew she wanted. The Poinsett Club and Daniel Chapel were just decorated for Christmas and everyone was getting into the Holiday spirit! The floral designs were breathtaking along with the royal blue bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen’s tuxedos. Like anything Mary Frances does, their wedding had a carefully curated style.
Will and Mary Frances decided to have a First Look to best accommodate their day’s schedule and get to their reception quickly. They were so excited to see each other! Their First Look gave us time for amazing images at both venues. I can’t wait to design their Heirloom Album so their wedding images are preserved for decades to come!
My two favorite moments were when the whole wedding party was posed on the Poinsett Club steps and I could see the whole wedding theme come together! My other favorite was when the bagpipes introduced Mary Frances before she walked down the aisle. Every element was so classic and unique!

Their custom Guest Book with sweet notes from their friends and family!
My all-time favorite ceremony moment, the anticipation for Mary Frances to walk down the aisle was magnified by the bag pipe entrance!
A sweet moment for both families to take part in lighting the unity candle.
This outdoor shot was special because every other wedding I have done here has been in the day time, so it has never been possible before!
The Swingin Richards were so fun and welcomed MANY on stage for solos!

See their amazing team of vendors!
