Shelby and Craig said their vows at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Downtown Charleston in the middle of a sunny August day. If there’s any proof that you can (and should!) do opposite of what the "industry standard” is, these two are it. Shelby and Craig got in touch with me just a few months prior to their Charleston elopement, and I had been looking forward to this wedding ever since. There is no right way to do a wedding, and if it means wrangling your family members to elope with you in the middle of August, during the hottest part of the day, you do it! Because they’ll still love you afterwards, and certainly be okay with it as long as there are drinks and food at the end of it all :) Enjoy these photos from their wedding day!
