After 10 years together, Nikki and Clayton have tied the knot in this wonderful wedding held at Sheraton Station Square in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! They’re such a fun couple. Nikki is brilliant and super sweet and her handsome straight-faced funny guy, Clayton, always knows how to make her laugh. :-) Just after finishing college in California, Nikki & Clayton, who are both engineers, met while working together and started dating two years later. The couple moved to the Charleston, SC area a year after getting engaged and the newlyweds are now enjoying their South Carolina home together with their lovable Labrador! Dearest doggy, Dot, is more than their pet too, she’s a member of the family and she even had a prominent place in Nikki and Clayton’s wedding. :-) Read on and click on the image gallery to see a few favorite photos from their big day, learn more details about this couple, and about their breathtaking wedding in the Steel City!

For cosmic couple Chris and Kelly, their fate and love was truly written in the stars.

Read on to learn their story and see photos from their Great American Eclipse Wedding. :-)
We adore the Charleston Waterfront Park and, occasionally, we get to photograph a shoot in that area with the most popular place being the park's Pineapple Fountain. However, when Chandler asked us here at Valerie & Co. Photographers to capture his proposal to Carrie, he had another romantic spot in mind at the Waterfront Park for the big moment! Chandler settled on proposing along the park pier with it's beautiful views that lookout into Charleston's city harbor. :-) Check out a few of Carrie and Chandler's super sweet Charleston Waterfront Park Pier proposal photos in the gallery and read what Carrie had to say about their proposal and wonderful love story!
It's crazy to imagine that the love of your life could be right in front of you for a very long time, but not even know it! Really though, it's all about fate's timing which was the case for newly engaged John and Mary Louise. For years these two were always so close to each other, but they didn't actually meet until the time was just right. Check out a few of the Charleston proposal photos of when Mary Louise said, "YES!" at Magnolia Plantation to John & read more about what she had to say on her and John's engagement and their love story!
