Last weekend, Scott and I spent the weekend documenting the wedding of an amazing couple at the Colleton River Club outside of Hilton Head Island. Molly and Tommy’s wedding took place on the grounds of the Nicklaus Club overlooking the magnificent marsh views followed by a stunning sunset. One of the most memorable moments of Molly and Tommy’s wedding was just as Molly’s father gave her away, he then surprised all of the guests by officiating their wedding.  Here is a sneak peek of Molly and Tommy’s amazing Colleton River wedding.

It has been an incredibly busy week here at Hopkins Studios. Before we are swept away with more weddings this weekend, I wanted to share two photographs from Melissa and Ryan’s wedding in Savannah last weekend. After eight years together, it was so exciting for us to watch the excitement that built up leading to their first look and their ceremony. Here is a quick sneak peek of their Savannah wedding.
