Toni + Sam

On July 1, 2017, we had the pleasure of photographing our friends’ wedding. Toni and Sam have known each other for several years. Their love is the kind of love that developed slowly over time and grew deep roots.

Their big day, planned by Family Affairs Events, was held at the gorgeous Beaufort Inn & Suites, garden courtyard in Beaufort, South Carolina. They wanted a simple and intimate wedding that emulated who they are as a couple. Toni was radiant while showing off her timeless and classic personality with her vintage hair and natural make up done by Orchid Salon and her simple, yet stunning, satin wedding dress. Sam showed off his casual and fun personality while he proudly wore pizza socks.

The day was celebrated with their closes friends and family. With a reception with pizza from The Upper Crust and a table of pies from Magnolia Bakery Cafe, the day was a day Sam and Toni will cherish forever.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Gates!
