I’m a Charleston based wedding photographer but I absolutely love to travel! I create timeless, joyful & tangible memories for my clients.
Hi, I'm Emma
Mallory and Zack had a fun summer wedding at The Beaufort Inn in Beaufort, South Carolina! The joy of seeing them become a married couple was incredible.
These two cuties met through a mutual best friend, who also happens to be the one who married them! This friend helped Zack develop a plan for the proposal, so obviously, this friend is very special to them! Mallory believed they were attending a graduation party, but Zack had rented a room overlooking a vineyard for this proposal! After he asked her to marry him, their family and friends surprised them with a party!
If you’re looking for a classic Lowcountry wedding venue, The Beaufort Inn is lovely and one you’ll want to check out! The southern charm of this venue is just breathtaking with its architecture. Whether you’re having an intimate wedding with less than 20 guests, or a big wedding of 200 guests, this venue can accommodate it. The Beaufort Inn is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Beaufort. While this lowcountry wedding venue is gorgeous, you can also walk to the Beaufort Waterfront Park for portraits, as we did for Mallory and Zack’s!
There are several venues on the property of the Inn where you can hold your wedding. Zack and Mallory held their outdoor wedding ceremony in The Tabby Garden and their wedding reception at The Old Bay Marketplace Loft & Rooftop Deck. This space is modernized and has a fun rooftop deck that your guests can enjoy.
Mallory wore a Stella York wedding gown she bought from Ellie’s Bridal Boutique in Virginia. She looked stunning in this lace fit and flare wedding dress. This gown perfectly combines romantic meets sexy with its lace fabric, V-neckline, and side cutouts with elegant straps connecting front to back. The dazzling Badgley Mischka shoes Mallory wore with her wedding gown were embellished with crystals and ivory beads. All of her bridesmaids wore light pink Azazie dresses in different styles. Zack and his groomsmen looked classy in their white button-up shirt, black bowtie, suspenders, and a tux/suit.
All of Zack’s in-laws created shirts for everyone to wear at their reception, officially making Mallory a member of “The Outlaws.” This part of the evening was so entertaining and had everyone laughing! I was amazed to see two families join together so seamlessly.
They enjoyed one last dance together at the end of their gorgeous wedding day. Their guests were getting ready for a sparkler exit while they were enjoying this memorable time!
It was imperative to both Mallory and Zack that their photos be true to life since they are both redheads. They wanted to make sure their hair looked natural and not too vibrant. I love when I can meet my couple’s expectations and deliver exactly what they desire!
Here are some of my favorites from their summer wedding in Beaufort!
