Darla and Phillip's industrial chic wedding at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot was ten years in the making, and it was worth the wait!
Jennifer and Laura, the ladies behind the lenses at Sweet E Photography, accompanied the bride and groom throughout their big day to make sure that every sweet moment was captured. The day dawned rainy and grey; while that's traditionally a good omen for the marriage, it can put a damper on capturing outdoor wedding photos.
Remembers photographer Jennifer, "We could see the mist falling onto the ocean from the hotel room [as the bridal party got married] but Darla did not seemed to be bothered by the rain. She was so laid back and happy!"
Their prayers for a break in the rain were answered, and, by the time that the couple was ready for their first look at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot, the late afternoon sunshine provided the perfect backlight for their formal portraits.
For a couple who wanted a location with plenty of charm and history, the train depot delivered on every level. It was built in 1937 and brought thousands of families to the Grand Strand during its 30 years as an active station. It's even on the National Register of Historic Places! Thanks to a community who was invested in revitalizing this bit of Myrtle Beach history, the station was refurbished and reopened in 2002. Today, it's owned by the city and serves as a stunning event place.
Says photographer Jennifer, "The train depot is full of character with its exposed wood trusses, flooring, and beautiful brick walls." The couple paired their burgundy and white color scheme with the vintage charm of the building for a fresh take on the industrial chic aesthetic.
