Andy & Leslie │ Murrells Inlet │ South Carolina

Do you remember those gorgeous sunset beach photos that I shared with you on a cold snowy day back in November?  Since it's been snowing all day in Saint Olaf with temperatures in the negative, I thought it would be a nice night to warm up with Andy and Leslie's sunny South Carolina wedding photos! 

This past October, Zach and I traveled south to document Andy and Leslie's intimate Murrells Inlet wedding day. We flew into Myrtle Beach a few days before the wedding, giving us time to spend with family and to scout the venue before the ceremony.

The church was stunning. Leslie told me they planned to get married on the back steps, surrounded by the huge old trees overlooking beautiful Murrells Inlet. Just pulling up to the spot where my sweet cousin would say "I do," I literally got chill-bumps from excitement (that's what we call goosebumps in the south)! I couldn't wait to watch Leslie marry the man of her dreams--and yes, Andy is totally dreamy! I was pretty sure I'd need a thousand tissues to get through the ceremony, as just walking around the location beforehand was making me misty-eyed!

Here are some of my favorites from their perfect day...

I loved that Leslie's daughters helped her get ready on her wedding day; Avery helped with hair and make-up, and Alli picked out and arranged all of the flowers. They both did such an amazing job and I know Leslie is so proud of the beautiful young women they've grown up to be. 

While I was with the bride, Zach spent some time with the groom before the ceremony. We're so happy to have these amazing people join our big happy family! 

Joy, love, and light overflowed ...

...and they said, "I do."

Andy and Leslie, 
Thank you for sharing your joy with us. 
We were so honored to be part of your wedding journey
 and couldn't be more excited for you both! 

We wish you the happiest ever-after...

Zach & Jillian
