An "Extreme" Story (warning: tearjerker)

For those of you College of Charleston Magazine readers, you may have noticed a small article in the front of the Spring 2011 issue about the college's involvement in the hit reality show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. We are proud to be regular magazine contributors, and were excited to be asked to accompany the CofC folks down to Beaufort to document the emotional unveiling of the renovated house, as well as a special surprise gift from CofC.
The College of Charleston Magazine says it best:

"The Dickinsons, wiping tears from their eyes, had just been reunited through satellite uplink with the family's father, a U.S. Marine Corps staff sergeant serving in Afghanistan."

Just after they reveled the house, which was an AMAZING complete renovation of their dilapidated house, they learned that there was more...

"Host Ty Pennington next introduced President P. George Benson, who explained to the still-shaking family that the Dickinson children would receive five full, four-year scholarships to the College."

More from the article:

"'Extreme Makeover transforms lives, quite clearly, for people all over the country,' President Benson acknowledged, 'and we wanted to transform some lives as well – not just with a home, but with education. We are thrilled to be able to do that.'

Judging by the family's emotional reaction, the opportunity of a College of Charleston degree for the Dickinson children meant just as much as the house."

The show just aired recently, and I'll be honest, I think there wasn't a dry eye to be seen! What an amazing gift. Watch the video on YouTube from the College of Charleston.

Sneak Peeeeeek...

Thought I would dish up a little sneak peek of Brandon and Brittany's wedding photos for a Friday afternoon blog break. Kip just sent over these as he's working on processing images form their wedding last Saturday, and I can tell already that this is going to be a hard one to narrow down!

Congrats again Brandon and Brittany!

Happy Weekend!

Meredith + John: An Upper King Affair

I heart Upper King. Especially on a gorgeous day in May, with a beautiful bride, in one of my favorite churches, and with a great group of people! The girls got ready in The Francis Marion Hotel, then we walked the half block down to St. Matthews Lutheran Chuch for a gorgeous ceremony, then on to the Charleston Visitor's Center Bus Shed for the party.

What a great night – we wish Meredith and John lots of love and happiness in their marriage!

Lily of the Field

We are so happy with how this shoot turned out. The weather was perfect, the location – perfect, and the bride, Lauren – gorgeous of course, and she was such a trooper!

This was a fun little adventure – we had to take a bit of a hike out to the field, and Lauren only had her gorgeous teal Louboutins, which we would absolutely not let mingle with a mile of gravel, not to mention the pain that would be incurred by Lauren's feet. So, after a charade of Chinese fire drill-like shoe swapping where I gave Lauren my flip flops, Kip gave me his shoes, and he walked in his socks (what a gentleman), we finally made it out to this little field of dreams...

Her beautiful bouquet (I LOVE the peonies!) is from the amazing Beth LeonGuerrero of WildFlowers, Inc.
