With private cooperation putting in about $142-million Gaillard Center, here in Charleston SC, is now completed. Located between Calhoun Street and George Street parallel to East Bay lies this amazing architectural building that compasses a world-class performance hall from the European opera house. As well it is it offers exhibition hall featuring 3 ballrooms and a grand ballroom. Along with that four function rooms, and four salon rooms. With its artistic design, it is one venue that will be booked quite frequently by brides to be. The interior of the Gaillard Center, here in Charleston Sc, features 2 grand staircases on the first floor along with two amazing spirals wooden staircases on the second and third floor. I had the honor to capture this amazing bride to be for her bridal portrait there for a wedding competition. As always asking permission is very important for any venue, not only out of respect but to make very sure the overall experience from your clients is flawless and enjoyable. This image is stunning, artistic and with great lines, we were graciously loaned this amazing wedding dress designed by Hayley Paige, provided by Jodi Of White on Daniel Island. We had an amazing team of two more very talented individuals ladies to include Jeannine Mariotti of Makeup by Jeannine, also included was Haley from Hermosa Jewelry who designs incredible jewelry for brides. As to deciding where to capture this and having the perfect theme to represent it all including the Gaillard Center as a wedding photographer, we considered many factors. While walking up the stairs and with help from Haley this seems to be the perfect angle and look we were looking for. Truly a timeless image like a fairytale coming to life.
