When I first met Bethany and Colby, it was to plan their stunningly romantic wedding at Lowdes Grove in Charleston, South Carolina for the summer of 2020. Unfortunately, like so many incredible couples this year, their plans had to completely change – they had a gorgeous and elegant legal ceremony earlier this year, as soon as it was safe and legal to do so. While they had initially planned to resume the planning of their Charleston wedding once the restrictions eased up, it eventually became clear that their backyard wedding was going to have to be their only wedding for 2020. At that point, we decided to get together for some stunning wedding day portraits to capture Bethany in her elegant wedding dress, and Colby in his military uniform at Reynolda Gardens in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
