First ever wedding on the front lawn Pawleys Plantation

First wedding ever on the front lawn of Pawleys Plantation

I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful wedding ceremony on the front lawn of Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC. This was the first time Pawleys Plantation held a wedding in the front of the clubhouse. Typically the weddings are held on the back lawn overlooking the golf course. The bride needed the wedding to be in the front so that she could ride a horse drawn carriage with her father right up to the ceremony location. I always love working with Heritage Carriages, I’ve done a number of weddings with them and it always …

Beautiful afternoon wedding at Wachesaw Plantation with a horse drawn carriage

I always love going to Wachesaw Plantation for a wedding, the oak trees on the Waccamaw River make a great backdrop for pictures, especially at sunset. It’s been a long time since I’ve photographed a wedding with a horse and carriage, it always makes for some really great pictures. I guess riding in on a carriage is the type of thing you really have to be at a plantation or garden style location like Wachesaw for it to work.

Beautiful wedding at Litchfield Plantation with a horse drawn carriage

This is the first wedding I’ve done at Litchfield Plantation.  It’s a very beautiful area, I always like the Litchfield / Pawleys Island area with all the moss covered Oak trees.  It’s so pretty if you can get the light coming through the trees just right in the evening.  One of my favorite bridal portraits ever was down in this area.  Just in case you are not familiar, Litchfield is about 20 minutes south of Myrtle Beach down business 17.  A lot of the best spots, with the beautiful trees, are away from the beach near the intracoastal waterway.  I’m going to post some extra pictures below of the carriage ride and some shots of the location that you won’t see in my galleries or on Facebook.  I hope you enjoy them.

It sounds like this will be my first and last wedding at this location.  I had a client telling me they are turning this into a housing development or something and no longer booking events.  I guess they had financial problems.  Oh well, it was a pretty spot.
