Lauren and Sudeep had an amazing wedding day! As I mentioned in their engagement session post, Lauren is one of my very close friends and so it was extra special for me to be able to capture their day. The morning started with the girls getting ready at one of Lauren’s friend’s homes in Charleston. They live on the marsh and their backyard is gorgeous! I really enjoyed taking pictures of the details, the girls getting ready, and the bridesmaids there. After that we headed over to the Island house on John’s Island. The Island house has an absolutely stunning view and sits right on the water!
Right before we were about to do Lauren and Sudeep’s first look, it started pouring rain. We held off and thankfully after about 45 minutes we were able to do their first look. Even with the change and schedule, Lauren and Sudeep had great attitudes and stayed very flexible! In fact, one of my favorite parts of their day was their first look. Right after seeing Lauren for the first time, Sudeep asked her if she'd like to pray together. It was so encouraging to me that one of the first things Lauren and Sudeep did together on their wedding day was pray! What a beautiful way to enter into marriage together!
Lauren and Sudeep had a beautiful, Christ-centered wedding day. They also had guests travel from farther away than any wedding I’ve ever photographed! Sudeep had family there that traveled from London, South Africa, and other distant locations! I really enjoyed how Lauren and Sudeep tied Indian customs into their wedding day with henna, a special shawl and tying a minnu on Lauren during the ceremony.
Their day ended with one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve ever seen followed by a very unique glow stick exit on a boat. Lauren and Sudeep, I hope you had an absolutely amazing time on your honeymoon to your secret location!!
