St Joseph Catholic Church Wedding & Robert Mills Reception


Karina and Daniel were married at St. Joseph Catholic Church downtown Columbia, South Carolina. Afterwards, they celebrated with friends and family at the Robert Mills House & Garden. I had the pleasure of capturing their rehearsal dinner (click here to see it!). This wedding was a lot of fun, so be sure to click to see the rest of this blog!



Karina and Daniel are both currently serving in our military (big thanks, you two! Lola Dee Photography offers discounts to those who are serving). With the help of their family, they planned a beautiful wedding full of gorgeous details. Their wedding invitations were incredible! I love the wax seal with their last name initial. The rings were really beautiful. I am in love with all of their special unique touches!

Karina and her “bride tribe” got ready at a private residence in Lake Carolina right next door to the guys. I love the bridesmaid’s personalized bags and the groomsmen’s flasks!2016-07-30_0009


Karina and Daniel were married at 1 o’clock in the afternoon at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church downtown on Divine Street in Columbia, South Carolina. This church is absolutely gorgeous on the inside!


After they said “I do,” Karina and Daniel were sent off with a bubble exit.


Karina specifically wanted this shot, and I LOVE it! Haha..


Next, we went into the church alcove to take bridal party pictures as well as portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs.!


The reception was held downtown at the Historic Robert Mills House downtown Columbia, South Carolina. There, they had a tent filled with refreshments, good food, good music, and great company!



Daniel teased Karina with the cake a little, but she definitely had the last laugh!

..he took it like a champ, though!


..and then Karina came to his rescue! Awwhhh!

It was the perfect send off for a daytime ending. Congratulations, Karina and Daniel! It was an honor to capture your big day. Your family and friends are some fun, kind, and special people! I really enjoyed being a part of it. Thank you both for your service to our country, and congratulations for winning the anniversary session contest! Looking forward to photographing you both again real soon!
