Wachesaw Plantation Club, Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina Wedding Ceremony

I had a great opportunity to photography an unusual and unique wedding in Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina, near Myrtle Beach. There are so many things to blog about so I will be writing about this wedding in two posts.

The wedding was held in Wachesaw Plantation Club.

Here is the bride overlooking Waccamaw River.

Bride in Balcony near River

The bride and groom decided to see each other before the ceremony to be able to do some portraits with friends and family.

Bride and Groom First Look

They had guests from all over the country and all over the world.

Instead of having somebody officiate the wedding, they had friends and family read passages or sing instead.

Girls reading Passages

The bride and groom read some passages too.

Here is the bride and groom.

Wachesaw Plantation Club, Murrell’s Inlet South Carolina Wedding Reception

Here is the bride in their reception venue at Kimbell’s in Wachesaw Plantation in Murrell’s Inlet.

Bride in Wedding Reception

I thought these black table napkins were just so elegant!

Black Table Napkins at Wedding Reception

During the reception, they had a little game where the bride and groom were sitting back to back and the host asked questions like, “Who’s the better cook?”, “Who is more creative?” and the bride and groom had to answer by raising the right shoe.

Bride and Groom Shoe Game

In lieu of the usual reception fare such as the first dance, cake cutting, etc., the bride and groom opted to have a mini-talent show instead to showcase the many talents of their friends and family. I have never seen so much talent in one room. They had people singing, tap-dancing, playing the harmonica, playing the guitar, playing the violin, doing a magic act and doing a baton routine.

Girl tap dancing

Here is a particularly crowd-pleasing performance during the talent show.

Girl with Baton Twirling

These two little girls were attentive throughout the entire show.

Here is what Amy had to say about her wedding photos:


Dear Honey and Brian,

We received the pictures, thank you! They are great, some really spectacular ones! Please let me know if you ever need me to give a recommendation, I would be happy to do that. I feel quite lucky that I found you on such short notice, thank you for your hard work!

I wish you the best, I am sure that you will be very successful in this career.

Here are the groom with the groomsmen. Brent was the only one who didn’t have sunglasses so we had to lend him ours. This is an orange sunglass by the way.

This is Theresa, just chillin’.

Bridal Portrait with Sun Flare

This next photo was a great idea of Theresa’s. This was done before the wedding ceremony. We took this photo with Theresa and Brent holding each other’s hands but not seeing each other.

There’s something very ethereal about this photo.

This is what Holly had to say about the photos.

Silvas Photo went above and beyond all of our expectations for our wedding photographers. They kept in complete contact with us and they were there to answer any questions or uncertainties we had. During the wedding and reception you hardly noticed them there. They never got in our way or interrupted anything. We now have the wedding photos of our dreams. We appreciate everything they have done for us and we will definitely recommend them to everyone we know. ”
