In anticipation of some seriously awesome blog posts that are heading this way, I wanted to give you all an opportunity to meet Sara. Sara and her incredibly charming groom were married this past summer in a fabulously romantic woodland setting, but right now is not the time to share those photos. Right now, I want you to feast your eyes on Sara’s ultra lovely bridal portraits that were photographed on the campus of Winthrop University. I am a graduate of Winthrop and have always found it to be both romantic and historically lush so it seemed the perfect place to take Sara for her customized session.
This is McBryde Hall, one of the older buildings on campus, and it was once the site of social dances and parties between the girls of Winthrop and the stationed airmen in training for World War II.
Sara has amazingly blue eyes but there is a real sense of grit behind them. Women that are both lovely and tough at the same time always make me proud to know them. Sara is smart and very girly but if you left her with twigs and a rock in the middle of the woods I am confident she could manage warm shelter and a hot meal.
Sara’s hair and makeup was expertly done by Mandi English of M Style Studio in Charlotte, NC.
We had so much fun running around the campus, as fast as you can in that magnificent gown, going in and out of buildings and mingling with art. I think it is always so wonderful when a woman takes the time for a bridal portrait.
Stay tuned for more info on Sara and Andreas rustic romantic wedding!
