Emily ventured to the historic Charleston peninsula for the lively wedding reception of Riley & Shannon. The newlyweds had exchanged vows in Costa Rica, and they wanted to have a reception for their dearest friends and family in Charleston. They envisioned the day to include beautiful portraits around the Holy City and dancing the night away in the heart of the historic quarter.

Shannon & Riley

We are obsessed with Shannon’s style. She was sensational in her mermaid gown with beautiful lace straps. We can’t decide which we loved more – her rocking leather jacket or wonderful fur bolero! When in doubt, go with both! Also, we were swooning over that fabulous jewel and floral headpiece.

Shannon’s bridesmaids looked equally as chic in their gorgeous beaded champagne gowns. Riley was dashing in his gray linen vest and pants. A self-proclaimed non-traditional couple and she having been a wedding planner for six years in Charleston, Shannon was looking for different Charleston portraits. We were up to for the challenge and found a colorful graffiti wall and a rooftop terrace with beautiful cityscape views.

Marion’s in the French Quarter is located in the historic downtown section of Charleston. It is the perfect southern event venue, surrounded by lovely cobblestone streets, and just steps away from the magnificent waterfront views. We absolutely loved the Geode theme. Shannon and Riley created with pretty magentas, purples, and teals incorporated into their unique centerpieces.

This chic and playful wedding just makes our hearts happy, and we want to thank Shannon and Riley for allowing us to capture their special day!
