I am so excited to share photos I took at this stylish Cedar Room wedding! Brianna and Jacob are a military couple, currently living on Daniel Island, who couldn’t wait to spend their forever with each other. Unfortunately, their wedding was planned for March 2020 and had to be rescheduled three times!!

Brianna and Jake’s Love Story

Jake proposed on the same beach where the couple decided to start a life together in Charleston. He offered Brianna a simple white gold ring with an elegant 1.5-carat diamond. Brianna excitingly said yes and was delighted her family was there to capture the moment in photos!

I got to meet Brianna and Jake as they planned for their engagement session and upcoming wedding! For their engagement session, we explored the streets of downtown Charleston and took some amazing engagement photos!

You can see more of their fun engagement session here!

The Cedar Room Wedding Details

This wedding was postponed twice due to the Coronavirus!  So when it came to their gorgeous summer wedding day at the Cedar Room, it was super emotionally charged! The venue had an industrial, elegant vibe with natural tones and creative DIY elements. Which complimented Jake & Brianna’s simplistic, minimal and classy style.

Witnessing Brianna, barely keeping it together during her vows, had me crying right along with her and the rest of the audience! And the way Jake looked at Brianna like he was the luckiest man in the world was adorable!

Brianna says she knew Jake was the one when they were able to grow on a deeper emotional level. They realized that a life without the other, would not be nearly as fulfilling and that one’s strength complimented the other’s weakness.
