Garrett + Kelly’s Charleston Wedding

I don’t even know where to start with this heartfelt beach wedding!  These two could not be more perfect for each other! Garrett has been my step-brother for almost 20 years and I love him like a brother, especially after we made it through high school together…LOL!  Growing up, I always loved hanging out with him.  He’s goofy, hilarious & so fun to be around but he didn’t always act like that in front of everyone until Kelly came around!  She brings out his true self and it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever witnessed!  Kelly is so warm, so kind, so loving!  I couldn’t have picked a better wife for Garrett!  There are so many beautiful & heartfelt stories in this wedding weekend that I don’t even know if I can put it into words properly but I will do my best and let the photos tell the rest of the story …
