Allie & Austin

Montage Palmetto Bluff, Bluffton, SC

2020 was the year of elopements! And nestled in a small chapel by the scenic May River, Allie and Austin tied the knot alongside their sweet dog, Poe. It was a day full of heartfelt joy and smiles, topped with a romantic boat ride. They wanted their wedding to be fun and carefree, centered around the water and marsh because their favorite thing to do as a couple is to be on the waterfront alongside their dog.

Allie and Austin both grew up in Charleston, SC and met when they were just 16 years old at a high school football game. They started dating 10 years later and people often ask they didn’t any sooner!

Austin proposed in the middle of the Charleston Harbor on a boat he inherited from his grandfather. He asked Allie for a drink from the cooler and when she turned around he was on one knee. Austin had all of their family and friends waiting with champagne in hand on the dock when they arrived to shore.

Looking back on these pictures, I see that not only was every detail beautifully executed, but their love is evident.
