Jackson’s Landing in Batesburg, South Carolina is a true diamond in the rough! It is breathing
taking. A cross stands on the top of a beautiful hill overlooking green forest and more rolling
hills. A barn like building is outfitted with elegant draperies and chandeliers and accented with
perfectly picked antiques. It was the perfect backdrop for Nea and Matt to tie the knot!
When I got there, Nea and her girls were enjoying the morning getting ready and jamming out
to some music. Nea was relaxed and calm! When Matt arrived he had an excited anxiousness
to him. He was both ready to get down the aisle and also wanted to make this the absolute
perfect day for his Bride!
Nea and Matt we're both giddy with excitement until the very moment Nea walked down the
aisle. That moment was one of so much power and emotion. As Nea and Matt’s eyes met it
was immediately evident how much they meant to one another. This absolute adoration and
love carried over to the sweetest personal vows they shared. They further signified their
commitment and love in a unity ceremony where they branded a piece of wood together. As
they sealed their marriage with a kiss the canon sounded (yes, a literal canon how awesome is
that!) Matt then swept Nea off her feet and carried her down the aisle!
Every aspect of the ceremony was beautiful, personal, and filled with so much love. One of the most special parts was the crown that Nea choose to wear last minute. She found it when packing up at her
parent's house. The moment she found it she knew she had found a very special something
old piece to wear. This crown had been a gift to her from her late grandfather. It was so special
to her to incorporate him into her special day!
Nea and Matt were completely smitten with each other as we took surreal sunset pictures
overlooking the rolling hills!
The celebration continued well into the evening with dancing and partying! Then they left
together, as husband in wife, with sparklers and well wishes! This wedding was a dream made possible only by the sweetest bride and groom. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Howard!
