Anna and Bobby flew in from New York City for their February Charleston wedding at the historic William Aiken House. They met eachother at university and chose Charleston because of familial ties, it's timeless beauty and the abundance of some of the most beautiful churches you will ever see. It is the Holy City afterall.

Anna and Bobby are both Catholic and had a full Catholic Mass for their wedding ceremony inside the beautiful and historic St Mary's Roman Catholic Church. It truly is one of the most beautiful churches in Charleston, adorned with beautiful woods and colorful murals from floor to ceiling.

Erica Peper from Peper Events put together an elegant and timeless affair fitting for a venue with so much charm and character, as the William Aiken House. It was a priveledge to work with her and photograph the beautiful decor, adorned with flowers from Fresh Weddings and Events. It's not an easy thing to do, to complement the bold and quirky colors of the Aiken house interior, but Erica and her team pulle it off so elegantly!

The William Aiken House has always been a favorite wedding venue of mine in Charleston South Carolina. It was a dream venue ever since I began my wedding photography career. So much so, that I planned my first ever editorial wedding shoot there. I fell in love with it's quirky, victorian charm and boldly painted walls. The garden oozes elegance at every corner, and you can't possibly get more traditionally Charleston and southern than a gigantic wrap around porch. The porch is perfect for seating wedding guests outside for dinner and the entire house can accomodate a large wedding of 300+ people - all with the charm of a more intimate venue because the dinner is partitioned off into rooms. 

Why You Should Hire Me For Your William Aiken House Charleston Wedding

You should hire meas your Charleston SC wedding photographer for your William Aiken House wedding because I appreciate the charm of the house. I appreciate and am drawn to unique character in the people and places I photograph. Most photographers would be scared away by the boldly colored interior. They'd say that the colored walls reflect unwanted tint on the skin or that it's too close to the hustle and bustle of King Street. I find none of this to be true. I embrace it. I embrace the bold and colorful. I embrace the noise and the character of Downtown Charleston SC. That's why I live in this city and why I chose to live downtown. The William Aiken House, to me, is the quintessential Charleston Wedding Venue - certainly for a wedding venue downtown. Also, it's right next to the American Theater and we've all seen the Notebook. It's charming. The William Aiken House is one of my favorite wedding venues in Charleston and I'd love to tell you all about what I can do as your wedding photographer for your dowtown Charleston SC wedding.
