Mr. & Mrs. Harrell // Summer Wedding at The Island House
Back in June I had the absolute privilege of capturing Allie & Cody’s wedding day at The Island House in Johns Island, SC! The story of how I know these two and how they fell in love is kind of humorous, so brace yourselves. Before I was a full-time wedding photographer I worked at Trader Joe’s, which is where I met and became friends with these two. Allie and Cody also worked at Trader Joe’s, which seems to be a breeding ground for love stories. Their wedding is actually the second Trader Joe’s wedding from our particular store (shout out to Paula & Jared), and I know of many more marriages that have come from various Trader Joe’s around the country.
As my understanding of their love story goes, Cody had his eye on Allie for quite some time, but it wasn’t until Allie got a hug from Cody that she really reciprocated those feelings. Allie is a huge lover of warm hugs, and I must say (from personal experience) that Cody gives great hugs. After many warm hugs were shared and they worked several shifts together, their love for each other bloomed and eventually led to their wedding day this past June!
In other slightly humorous and coincidental news, Allie goes to law school with one of my past brides (Hey Bianca!) who also happened to get married at The Island House! Small world.
Thank you Allie & Cody for having me document such a special day for you two!
