Morgan + Matt | A Furman University + Commerce Club Wedding | Greenville, SC

I realized earlier in the year that I was shooting so many out of town weddings that my first one IN Greenville was going to be Morgan and Matt’s wedding.  But since it was in mid-June, it felt so far away!  Yet here we are, already looking back on their gorgeous elegant wedding day!

When I walked into Morgan’s hotel room, I’m pretty sure she squealed as she hugged me :-)  But I wouldn’t have it any other way!  When Ben and I first sat down with her at the end of last summer to meet her and hear some of her and Matt’s story, we just clicked.  But Morgan is one of those people who is so easy to like because she is genuinely inviting to whomever she meets.  She draws you in with her kindness and without even thinking about it, she radiates the love of Christ to those around her.  And you could easily see that in each of her bridesmaids and her family!

And it’s no wonder Matt loves her so much. He may be the more reserved of the two, but those smiles he had for her and her alone made it evident that she can bring something out in him that no one else can.

You guys.  Thank you for trusting us to capture your love story this past year.  I know you are SO thankful to no longer be long-distance and I hope your honeymoon in the tropics has been exactly the rest and time together that you’ve been longing for!

Morgan told us early on that they were going to play off of their last names and stick to primarily black and white colors with a touch of green and a pop of peach in their flowers. It was so elegant!

And how can you not love Morgan’s shoes??

If the pajama and robe trend was happening when we got married, I was completely oblivious to it.
Because I totally would have done something like this for my bridesmaids!

I know I posted her bridal portraits earlier this week, but I only wanted to take more!  So stunning, Morgan!

And one classic portrait before going to meet her groom…

Matt’s grandparents raised him so to have his granddad stand beside him as his best man was possibly one of the sweetest things I’ve seen in a long time.

My talented friend Allison captured these photos of Matt getting ready and this one is a favorite!

The girls were really hoping to be able to watch Morgan & Matt’s First Look from the room!

And they could!  Do you see them?!?

I love the Hyatt and all of their natural light!

One of the wonderful things about a couple seeing each other before the ceremony is the number of portraits we’re able to get of the two of them throughout the day.  These next few were taken in less than 3 minutes before we did wedding party photos!

Girls!  Y’all are so beautiful!

I loved the backs of their dresses!

When we got to the chapel, with plenty of time to spare before the ceremony, we saw that their getaway car had arrived early!  So what did that mean??  More portraits!  And I’m pretty sure these are some of my favorites from the day.

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-166 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-167 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-168 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-169

Y’all.  I seriously felt like this car had pulled out of Downton Abbey to come whisk Morgan and Matt away.

And in case you missed it on Facebook or Instagram… this photo is a new all-time favorite!  Gah!  You guys are amazing!!

One of the other sweetest things I’ve ever seen was when Morgan’s 4th grade class from this past year met her outside before the ceremony!
Y’all! They were so precious and SO excited.  She invited them to the ceremony and wanted to see them beforehand since they would all be heading home after the ceremony.  Seriously, so cute.

And then it was time!

I think there were tears all around as Morgan’s brother sang during the ceremony.

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-185 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-186

Her uncle, who officiated the ceremony, mentioned her students and this was her turning around to BEAM at them!

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-187 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-188

MARRIED!

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-189 elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-190

Oh gosh, I love this!

This photo happened on the way to the reception… because I was able to hitch a ride in the front seat!!  I can’t believe I was able to ride along in a car made in 1928.  Bucket list item, check!

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-201

Oh you guys!

When I walked into the Commerce Club, I stopped dead in my tracks.  The room was GORGEOUS and I could have spent all afternoon in there photographing details.  Thankfully Allison was able to get there after the ceremony to document most of it for Morgan and Matt before guests found their seats!

Matt danced with his mom…

elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-222elegant-wedding-greenville-sc-223

And then danced with his grandma who was SO touched that she couldn’t hold back her tears during the entire dance!
