Marianne and Ryan are married!

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Marianne and Ryan’s wedding was in the small town of Due West, SC, which is actually the town where I went to college! It was at DWARP, the Due West Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church.

The ladies were fun to take pictures with before the ceremony! Marianne and her friends were very silly, giggly girls, excited about the wedding.

She just couldn’t resist pinching Marianne’s chin!

The flower girls were absolutely adorable! They looked like little woodland fairies with the flowers in their curly hair! I loved the missing two front teeth!

While taking some photos of the guys goofing off, Ryan’s dad just came up behind him and smacked him on the back of the head. Everyone laughed! 🙂

Owen, the ring bearer stood in front of the groomsmen for a few pictures, however not for long, he took off flying in circles with his leaves!

Rev. Calvin Draffin, officiated the ceremony. He is of course known for always quoting Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

Marianne and Ryan are such a happy couple! Every moment you saw them together  they were smiling, laughing and having an awesome time together! Their faces just seemed to light up in the others presence, you could really tell that they must really love each other!

Most couples feel a little confused and awkward when they cut the cake, especially the during the moments afterward when you are done and the crowd is still staring at you, but not Marianne and Ryan! They just kept laughing and having a good time!

I love when the kids keep blowing bubbles even after the couple has left! What adorable kids, and fun pictures!

Davey Morgan Photography | Due West, SC Portrait and Wedding PhotographerI had so much fun photographing Marianne and Ryan’s wedding! It was fun to be back in Due West, and run across some of my old professors, the president of the college, and some old classmates. Marianne and Ryan seemed to have a wonderful time with all their family and friends, and they had a beautiful fall wedding! Congratulations! After seeing how joyful you two were I think the  saying “may today be the day you love each other the least” just seems to fit. I hope you continue to have a wonderful, joyous marriage!

We took Marianne’s bridal photos on her family farm. It was very beautiful! The farm was actually owned by the Boyse family until 1912. The farm produced milk and potatoes for Erskine College, my Alma mater. We took a few in front of an old barn. I just love the texture of old wood!

We took these photos in the yard at the side of the house.

These were taken in her front yard where the lighting was really soft and even!

Marianne has amazing bone structure, her cheeks and chin are very well defined. I wanted a picture that really accentuated this. As an added bonus her ring really stands out!

I love the swirls and curly lines on her dress, and the V shape in the back of the dress, it hugs the small of her back, and really compliments her figure.

I always love getting close-ups with people’s eyes!

One thing I love about bridal shoots is that no two are the same, and a lot of times I wind up shooting in places I didn’t plan on. When we were driving to meet Marianne we saw tons of awesome spots for pictures, and we made mental notes of where they all were, thinking we might get a couple at the house and then go back to the spots. When we go to Marianne’s we discovered that there were plenty of great places to take photos, and they’d be even more special to her, as the place where she grew up, instead of a random field or something. It’s very important to me that the bride’s pictures be special to her, and if possible, the location have some significance in her life. It adds something special to the photo, almost like a little secret, or story behind it.
