Myrtle Beach Wedding

We started off October in a big way this weekend in Myrtle Beach at the incredible wedding of Mary Madison and Andrew.
It started at the First United Methodist Church at a beautiful ceremony that included Mary Madison's grandfather and aunt, who are both ministers, as well as senior pastor Ken Timmerman. Mary Madison's grandfather is pastor emeritus at the church and her family has a long history there.
We want to recognize the efforts of Norman and Donna McQueen and Terry Sanders who worked to make everything run so smoothly at the church.
I was also fortunate to have the help of photographer Randall Hill as we worked to document the event, which included more than 600 guests. Randall is a talented photojournalist who has been a newspaper Photographer of the Year in both North and South Carolina.
The reception at the beautiful Dunes Golf and Beach Club was a spectacular party. Flowers from the Cactus Sands Florist and Nursery were seemingly everywhere. Hats off to clubhouse manager Donna Eddington for helping to organize an amazing event.
It was such a pleasure to work with both Mary Madison and Drew's families and we wish them all of the best!
