Kayla + Brian: Engagement at Old Sheldon Church Ruins

Kayla and Brian: Engagement at Old Sheldon Church Ruins | Palmetto State Weddings

The Old Sheldon Church ruins in Yemassee, South Carolina, are the perfect balance of history, romance, and mystery. Dating to before the Civil War, the property now hosts a select number of weddings each year, in addition to bridal shoots, wedding styled shoots, and engagement photography sessions.

Photographers and couples alike are drawn to the live oaks, rustic brick, and lush greenery at the ruin site. As photographer Audrey Priel of Rose Trail Images remembers, “This venue provided the most unique backdrop I've ever used!”

Kayla and Brian posed for Audrey at their Old Sheldon Church ruins session and they came away with some incredible images to share with their family and friends. But the session wasn’t over then and there!

“After that we stopped off at the driveway of an old plantation, then ended up at the big red barn in Bluffton, South Carolina. There we did more of a holiday shoot, with save the date pictures and images with their precious pups,” says photographer Audrey.

From the romantic ruins of Yemassee to the rustic barn wedding feel at their second location, Kayla and Brian’s engagement session celebrates everything we love about the Lowcountry!
