Sunday was the perfect fall day for a wedding. We always love being at McGuire’s Millrace Farm. McGuire’s legacy starts back in 1816 when Michael McGuire sailed from Ireland to America. He and his wife came to Cherokee County by way of Pennsylvania and Sweetwater, Tennessee. His grandson John Madison married the girl next door, Elizabeth Baker, and moved to her family property where they farmed and managed a grist mill. The Baker farm is now the current McGuire’s Millrace Farm.
Today, Tommy and his wife Linda own the farm, continuing the tradition of serving others not only in their community but now around the world. They built the current Reception barn on the property in 2006. Their daughter Natalie, came back to the farm after graduating from college to be the venue and event coordinator. From the friendly faces to the gorgeous property McGuire’s is definitely one of our favorite places to photograph weddings.
Vanessa and Denton both work in healthcare, she is in recruiting and Human Resources and he is in the Supply Chain field. Denton and Vanessa like to go to the beach, ride bikes, spend time with family and play with our two dogs, Rocko and Bagger. Denton is passionate about the University of South Carolina Football and Vanessa is passionate about family and friends. The two met on a blind date at a local restaurant and popular hang out called Captain Hirams. One night, while they were in Beaver Creek, Colorado Denton proposed to Vanessa on a moonlight hike.
Vanessa and Denton’s wedding was stunning. A gorgeous celebration with a neutral color pallet. Every aspect was beautiful, from Vanessa’s Eva Lendel dress, white and green bouquet, and epic ceremony under rows of river birch trees. Their wedding party was made up of siblings. And they enjoyed a delicious dinner with family and friends followed by dancing to a fun live band and a glowing sparkler exit.
We wish you both all the best. Love, Tanya and Harry
