Mr. & Mrs. Franklin | Columbia SC Spring Wedding

River Road & Jasmine Houses Wedding Photographer

Beth and Bryan Franklin were married at the River Road and Jasmine Houses in Irmo, SC. 

Beth and Bryan are just amazing! They were both relaxed and so ready for their big day to finally be here.

The wedding day was full of lots of handmade creations by Beth. She is so talented when it comes to design/creating! From the wedding save the dates and invitation, to the signage, to Bryan’s tie design, and more! Her handiwork was ALL over and man, was it well done!! I am so impressed by her ability to seamlessly tie everything together for a cohesive look. She thought of absolutely everything! 

Beth got ready with her maid of honor and some other friends and family and was just so joyful! Brian and his best man and sons arrived, after his best man was stung by a wasp when walking into the venue (he was such a trooper!), so that was an eventful start of the day for them. 

Beth and Bryan had their first look right outside the bridal suite on the pathway that leads to the ceremony site. It has all of the most perfect greenery and looks like a fairytale. After their first look, we took portraits of the two of them and then some with family and friends. 

Their ceremony was sweet and was performed by Beth’s good friend, who made it super personal and got lots of laughs and smiles from Beth and Bryan and their guests.

The reception was a fun time of food, fellowship, and lots of laughs. Beth’s college roommate she hadn’t seen in several years was there, as well as lots of she and Bryan’s friends from different phases of life. 

Samantha, Beth’s maid of honor and cousin gave a sweet and heartfelt toast to Beth and Bryan, then Bryan’s brother gave the best-of-all-time groomsman toast, everyone was laughing and then crying within seconds. It was so well done and genuine from both of them.

Mr. & Mrs. Franklin, we wish you all the best! We admire the two of you so much and were truly honored to be the ones to capture your special day!
