There is so many things I want to tell you about Lizanne & Walt’s beautiful wedding. I want to tell you about the 138+ year old family home they got married at. I want to tell you about Walt and his mom doing the Texas 2- step for their dance (THEY ARE FROM TEXAS Y’ALL. It was amazing.) I want to tell you about Lizanne and her three sisters (they were a hoot).
I want to tell you soooooo many things…. but I will try my best to keep it short and sweet so you can get to photos. 😉
Lizanne reached out to me a few months ago explaining that because of health issues with a family member, she and Walt were going to plan a quick wedding at her family’s homeplace in Central, SC.
As I read the email, I was so sad because even via email I knew I needed to photograph these two… but I was already booked. What’s the saying? You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take? Well, I emailed her back and simply asked if their date was set in stone. And then I held my breath.
AND she said the date was flexible, I squealed, and angels were singing. It was serendipity.
When my 2nd shooter and I arrived, I was awestruck. Not only has the stunning white house been in the family for over 5 generations, but this wedding was a true family affair. Lizanne’s mom, Lisa, worked tirelessly (and quickly!) to pull together this sweet wedding, handling a lot of the details and coordinating. Lizanne’s aunt did the flowers, her cousin baked the cake, and her dad hit it out of the park with the dinner he cooked.
OH, and the Clemson Tiger came. Fun fact, Clemson was founded in 1889.. nine years after the beautiful homestead was built. That’s pretty rad.
Simple and oozing with sentimental details, this wedding was just utter perfection **kisses fingertips**. I would tell you more about them all but I would never do it justice. Instead, I invite you to look through and relive this day below.
Walt & Lizanne – Y’all feel like family. Your “Old House” felt like home. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your beautiful day and for trusting me with these memories.
