Katie and Eric’s anti-wedding has to be hands down one of the coolest weddings I’ve witnessed. “A huge party where we’ll get married somewhere in the middle” is how Katie described the event. Both Katie and Eric came from previous marriages and while they thought they didn’t want to have a wedding, at the last minute, they decided that they could do it their own way and still find a way to celebrate their relationship.
Big fans and lovers of music, the couple decided on a celebration that felt more like a party rather than a wedding. Katie and Eric got ready at home where gifts were shared from Katie’s kids to her husband-to-be. Tears were shed and the love and excitement of merging families. Beginning again and celebrating their union felt so right. The beginning of their day was spent only with immediate family and a few close friends. We captured a rooftop first look at their home and then adventured off to do family photos around Sullivans Island via their super cute Moke! These two loved to pull out their Zoolander references and fun poses, allowing them to let loose and have fun while taking portraits.
From their home on Sullivans Island to Union Station, every moment was authentic, groovy, and raw and so much fun. At the end of the night, the famous James Island Cowboys surprised us all standing tall on their horses. Katie and Eric’s anti-wedding inspired me as they decided to “have a big party and get married somewhere/ sometime in the middle.” You don’t have to be traditional, and you can still make it feel like yourselves.
