Columbia State House Bridals

When Emily pitched the idea of doing her bridal session at the Columbia State House, I was ecstatic!  It was my first trip here and I was not disappointed!  This classy, yet edgy, bride had me squealing with excitement for every shot!

Her burgundy suede boots and matching coat was nothing like I had ever seen!  She looked like she walked straight off of the cover of a magazine!  Emily’s bold blue eyes was the icing on the cake and she posed effortlessly the entire time!  You would think she had been modeling for years!

I’m so excited that I finally get to share her incredible bridal portraits!  Stay tuned for her romantic wedding at the Lace House!
