Niles and MaryGray's Lace House Wedding

How can one wedding have so much unique style? I’m still blown away from all the special little details. There are so many things I could say about MaryGray and Niles! If you’ve been following my work for a while you’ve probably noticed me saying that I don’t push “first looks” (where the bride and groom see each other before their ceremony). But my goodness, their first look was so perfect! They couldn’t stop smiling and loving on one another as they spent those few moments together and exchanged some special gifts. 

They got married at the Lace House in Columbia, and had a beautiful day with a mix of sunshine and overcast weather. I love the backdrop of the arbor garden during their ceremony and their clear tented reception with cafe lights. The food was also delicious! Niles is a talented musician and of course it was only fitting to have an equally talented band perform at their wedding. Everyone danced the night away. 

It was such an honor to be a part of MaryGray and Niles’ wedding. I grew up with and went to school with MaryGray and it always means so much to me when I get to work with friends. Her and Niles are perfect together and I loved watching them interact with each other during their engagement session and wedding day. They are so genuine. Also, I’m thankful these two booked 10 hours of coverage. Can’t recommend that enough. The day never felt rushed and we had plenty of time to get everything captured.
