Twigs Tempietto Wedding Photos


Greenville, South Carolina

I’m not going to lie, I had a lot of trouble figuring out what to write about Sarah and Mark and their gorgeous wedding at Twigs Tempietto.  I had an even harder time choosing a main image for their blog.  The reasons are simple – There were simply too many amazing moments to try to sum up with a few superficial words or a single cover image.  Epic couple’s photos, tons of emotional moments, a wild reception – This one had it all.  And if you remember these two from their engagement photos, you would not expect anything less from this couple.  I ended up feeling like the above image, taken from their first look early in the day better represented their relationship than any dramatic, artistic couple’s photo.  This is because at the base of it all, through all the humor, past the goofiness, what Sarah and Mark have is more than just a pretty picture – they have a deep, meaningful connection that makes them one of the strongest couple’s I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Filling this page with boring text won’t tell you anything about this couple, because they are too perfect for each other to sum up with a few words.  They are the perfect extension of each other’s personality, and they simply…work.  so instead of cluttering everything up with a bunch of descriptive words, I’m going to let their photos tell the story that words can’t.  Just check out a few of my favorites from Sarah and Mark’s Twigs Tempietto wedding below and see if you agree:

Notice a difference in the getting ready photos?  Guys definitely have the easy job.  Sarah and Mark chose to have their first look at the Greer City Park, which was conveniently close to their getting ready locations.  Luckily it was mostly empty that day, which is always appreciated to allow some privacy for such a private moment.  All I ever want is for my couples to be able to tune out the distractions of the day so they can focus on what really matters – each other.

Sarah and Mark chose to have their ceremony at Twigs Tempietto, a long-time Greenville favorite.  It is protected from the elements while still giving off a nature vibe, so although it never actually rained like it was forecast, I knew we were set either way.  Twigs is also one of my favorite wedding venues for reception photos.  The layout makes it easy to cover the entire place, and the setting gives me a chance to really play around with lighting.  Add in a perfect couple, a choreographed first dance, and tons of proud friends and family, and you have what I consider the perfect reception.
