For some, school pride runs very deep and in South Carolina, we love our universities, their teams, and the rivalry between USC and Clemson. Take a visit to this southern state, and it won’t take any time at all before you see just about everyone showing off gamecock colors of garnet & black, or tiger pride in orange and purple. For Bride & Groom, Sara & Dean, the theme for their wedding came from their love of her alma mater, and their favorite collegiate football team, Clemson University! Sara graduated from Clemson and went on to become an RN and her Groom, Dean, is a Farmer and owner of Hutto Brothers Partnership. The college and Dean's occupation gave inspiration for their wedding. From the breezy tea length bridesmaids gowns, to the beautiful flower bouquets, Clemson inspired accent colors were delightfully displayed and their reception exit is a farm boys dream come true. ;-) Checkout a few of their country farm & Clemson inspired wedding photos and read on to learn more about this couples big day!

Right now in Charleston, Spring time is trying really hard to make its way here early! We have had a few unseasonably warm days, flowers are starting to bloom, and of course now there is pollen everywhere. (lol who's ready for allergy season?) Lucky for Jaymin when he proposed to Arica during their visit to The Holy City, they missed the height of all the pollen that's starting to set in but got to enjoy the surprisingly pleasant February weather and the beautiful grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. :-) After the big moment Arica couldn’t wait to share the exciting news and immediately called to Facetime with her family. It was all so sweet and pretty picture perfect! Add to it that this pair is probably THE cutest couple ever, and it’s easy to see why we just love their proposal photos! We asked Jamyin to tell us more about the two of them and you can read that now while enjoying a few images from their Magnolia Plantation proposal in the gallery!
The Bride and Groom spend a lot of time planning their big day. With all that work and preparation, you’d obviously want to savor it all and really be in the moment. We here at Valerie & Co. Photographers have a few more tips on how to relax and fully enjoy your Charleston wedding!
