Erika and Steve are a couple from Birmingham, Alabama. However they both used to live in Myrtle Beach area, and since they meet on the beach at Pawleys Island, SC, its no surprise that this is where their wedding took place. I had a pleasure to meet them in January for their engagement picture which we did on the beach at Pawleys Island, where they two originally met. So I was really exited about the wedding of this beautiful couple.
Erika is originally from Miami and she has some Cuban roots. There was that nice Spanish feel to this wedding coupled together with southern charm of an ancient live oak trees, made the day absolutely perfect and unforgettable. This wedding had lots of wonderful little details surrounding the ceremony and the reception site, definitely was a great party with lots of salsa dancing.
Heritage plantation is an amazing wedding venue, it has a really long alley of Live oaks on the way in that definitely makes for a pretty photos. Ceremony was held under the largest tree on the back of Heritage Club, weather had me worried for a while but the day turned out to be amazing with absolutely breathtaking sunset.
Little history lesson about the heritage plantation: “Heritage Plantation is located on the Waccamaw River in an area where nearby rivers and creeks served as hideouts for pirates like Blackbeard and also were effectively used in the harassment of the British during the Revolutionary War. Early colonists found this land along the tidal rivers in the Low Country particularly suited to rice cultivation. Some of the earliest fortunes in America were made by the plantations developed for that purpose. After the Civil War the fortunes of the plantations declined and in many cases they became hunting preserves. Today they are either housing developments or are preserved for history by foundations or trusts.
