Heidi and Karl’s whimsical wedding at McMenamin’s Edgefield was perfectly executed. It was the first Quaker wedding I’ve ever photographed and I’m so glad I got to experience it. The ceremony is more meditative than a typical wedding. Guests can share a story or thought if they’d like, but there’s no pressure to speak. They exchanged their rings and vows, but somehow it was a bit more natural and personal. Each guest was considered a witness and signed their marriage certificate. It was intimate and emotional, but in a different sort of way. I loved it.
The details were a perfect representation of Heidi and Karl. Mini Diana cameras and rare books were found on every table, with vintage-y Alice in Wonderland inspired table settings. They had a typewriter for the guests to write messages and a Heidi & Karl themed crossword puzzle. I can only hope that my wedding is as beautiful, comfortable and magical as this one.
