Bowing Oaks Plantation, which sits on five acres of rolling green lawns and oak trees, was the location for Kara & Curtis’ fall plantation wedding.
How he asked: Curtis proposed to Kara at Friendship Fountain with family and friends watching from a nearby hotel balcony. Kara was completely surprised and of course said “yes!” After saying “yes” to her darling, she soon heard cheers and clapping from above to find the second surprise Curtis had in store, which was celebrating with everyone who came. It was a beautiful way to incorporate their loved ones into such a special moment.
From the photographer: The two envisioned a day filled with friends and family celebrating, partying, and toasting to the start of their journey together. Their ceremony was beautiful, filled with heartfelt vows, and a song from grandma. Formal portraits followed underneath the oak tree before we grabbed newlywed shots as the sun was setting. Walking beneath the oaks, Curtis held his darling Kara while the two stole a kiss here and there during their photos. I just loved the twinkle in his eye when he looked at Kara realizing she was officially his Mrs. Balfour. Our night was filled with dancing, a lot more dancing, even a ton more dancing, and the most exciting send off as the two ran beneath a parade of sparklers. It was the perfect ending to the most beautiful day!
