Low Country Elopement

We traded the mountains for the Lowcountry last week and the heat and bugs aside, we loved it! When we visited Beaufort in the past we found the beautiful  St. Helena Chapel of Ease. The inspiration for this Beaufort Wedding shoot was colorful pinks and oranges for a perfect low country elopement. The bright colors including the groom’s pink suit coat were set against the white walls of the St. Helena Parish ruins.

Built-in 1740 the parish served planters who lived far away from the parish church in Beaufort. The church was abandoned when the farmers evacuated the island in 1861. During the Federal occupation, the church was used frequently by several of the Northerners. The came to the island to educate and train the freedmen. It was also used as a sanctuary by Methodist freedmen as early as 1868. The church burned in a forest fire in 1886 but was never rebuilt.

About the Couple

Jacquelyn and Cody met online. She told him she wasn’t dating, but he told her that he was very adamant about taking her on a date because he did not want to be friends. Cody told her “tell me what time I should pick you up,” and he arrived with flowers and took his hat off at the door. They drove to Savannah and ate a steak dinner and drove the long way home. They have been together for 3 years now.

A full-time equestrian Jaquelyn trains horses and Cody is a deputy. The two were supposed to be married this fall, but Jaquelyn had a life-threatening injury from a horse kicking her in the liver. So financially they had to postpone their celebration. Even though they did not get to have our wedding this year, being a part of this styled wedding shoot was very special to the two.
