A Lowcountry Plantation Wedding

I had the opportunity back in October to help Photos By JKay with this beautiful lowcountry wedding.

Cody & Megan are both from small town South Carolina and have such a big heart and have a love I’ve never seen before. They are the sweetest couple and I was so honored to be at the wedding. Adam Siegel with Siegel Films did such an amazing job with this highlight video! Be on the lookout for pictures from their big day… I’ll be sharing those when they are ready! Until then, enjoy!

Josh & Stee Say “I Do!”



What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

Stee: Having a fiance’ in Afghanistan probably helped me the most in planning for the big day due to all the new free time I had. I was able to work on wedding stuff throughout the weeks and weekends when I would usually be spending time with my now new husband. I was able to spend large amounts of time researching everything from flowers to koozies.  I also had a great friend who helped me through the whole process as well. She was definitely the biggest help on my wedding day because she knew the end and outs of everything. She knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it, which made everything less stressful.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

Stee: It’s hard to say the most important thing about choosing vendors, I can narrow it down to 3 things. Word of mouth helped me a lot in choosing my vendors. I asked my friends who they used, what they liked and disliked, and then researched them from myself. Professionalism was also very important. When I was calling around to meet with different florist, I ran into two that didn’t even return my call….very unprofessional. And the last thing, which could be the most important, was the connection I felt. All of my vendors were very down to earth and easy to talk to. I found that some almost became family during the planning, which made the planning go by very smoothly.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Stee: Ultimately my favorite thing about my wedding was being with both my friends and family as well as my husband’s. I don’t think the opportunity will ever arise for us all to be together again, so I cherished this time of togetherness.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Stee: The best piece of advice I could give to other brides would be to be organized. Buy one of those big binders and keep everything you can in it. Wedding planning is hectic, and I felt like this gave me some piece of mine. I felt very accomplished when I could check things off of my checklists.  Mine has dates of wedding shows I attended, vendors I liked, and pictures taken throughout the planning. It really turns out to be an amazing keepsake.


 

New Partnership

In the wedding industry, you get the opportunity to meet and work with some AMAZING people… I have made so many great friends through my business and love what I do.

When I was planning my wedding last year, I met an amazing photography husband-wife duo who I just clicked with and fell in love with. My husband and I hired them on the spot and were so please with all of our pictures… from engagement to my bridals and our wedding day. Judy Kay & Wayne Bryan are just perfect at what they do and know how to capture all the “special” moments.

Judy Kay & I really clicked during all our photo shoots and we became really close. After the wedding, Judy Kay offered me a position to be an assistant to her, helping her coordinate with her brides as well assist her on shoots. I jumped at the opportunity to give me some experience in the industry.  It was because of Judy Kay & my passion for weddings that I decided to open “TLC Events.”

 

On that note, I am pleased to announce that Photos By J.Kay & TLC Events have now partnered together to offer brides a great package deal for their wedding. The deal includes wedding coordination for your wedding day as well as photography for engagement, bridals and wedding day, complete with 2 photographers and a disc full of all your pictures from each shoot, with rights to print!

We would love to make your day as special as you deserve! For details, please contact us at tlceventssc@gmail.com or click on the Contact tab to send us a message!
