James & Madeline tied the knot this past weekend at their home church surrounded by their favorite people. They partied the night away at their stunning reception at the Foundations for the Carolinas. Everything came together perfectly for the happy couple!

James & Madeline are the kind of couple I always love working with because we immediately hit it off! Their engagement earlier this year was so much fun and we left as friends, which is always the best feeling! They had been planning every last detail for months and, this past Saturday, it all came together to make the most perfect wedding day. Their vendor team was out of this world and worked so hard to bring their vision to life! Their ceremony was so heartfelt as they joyfully served communion to every single one of their guests – a first for us to photograph! James was so overcome with emotion the moment he saw his girl and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! I am just so happy for these two and have loved getting to know them as their photographer – now as their friend! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. McLelland!
