Tae and Samantha’s wedding at the Eagle Oaks Country Club was the last wedding of the year for us that’s close to home. We’ll be traveling to South Carolina in a few days to end the 2018 wedding season out. Being that Samantha works for the country club, we knew that we had to step our game up and therefore decided to bring our associate photographer Cecilia along with us to help out. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves leading up to this one, and just like all the others, it turned out to be an amazing day. Easily one of our favorites from 2018.
Samantha and the bridesmaids got ready in the beautiful Eagle Oaks Savannah House Guest Suites. Tae and his groomsmen started the day with a round of golf then got ready in the Eagle Oaks library. The ceremony took place at the St Peter’s Church in Point Pleasant followed by spending some time back at the Country Club getting some photos of Tae and Samantha just in time to catch a beautiful golden hour and sunset. The two of them made our day extremely easy being that they needed no direction whatsoever. They took full advantage of this time alone, away from everyone else, loving on each other and making sure they made the most of every second they had together.
It was a cold and windy day, but the day couldn’t have gone much smoother. Samantha looked absolutely stunning in her wedding gown which was custom made by her longtime friend Joy Cioci. Joy actually created three variations of Sam’s dream gown, including a detachable train (18 ft long, weighing 6 pounds!), and cape. Samantha discovered Joy when she was designing her ready to wear collections and Samantha’s company sponsored her fashion show – Sam told us that she always knew Joy would design her dress someday. It was definitely one of the most impressive custom designed gowns we’ve seen. We even went back out later in the evening when the temps were just above freezing to capture some night shots of Sam in the gown, you’ll want to make sure you check those out at the end of the blog. We couldn’t be more grateful for Tae and Samantha choosing us to photograph their big day and wish them nothing but the best in the future. I know this is only the first of many life events that we’ll be capturing for them.
