Sarah Goldman Photography has teamed up with WedTexts this year to follow several Charleston couples on their wedding journey – from their engagements to the big day!
In February, I met and photographed Erica and Logan, who are planning a North Carolina wedding in September. Read their write up in Charleston Weddings here! Erica and Logan will be using WedTexts to coordinate their wedding weekend. See the highlights from their engagement here.
“I think WedTexts is going to help me keep my wedding celebration from being complete chaos. It is so hard to get everyone on the same page and “in the know”. I think it will save me a lot of phone calls and confusing texts, and I think every bride could use an app that helps reduce the stress.” – Erica
We caught up with Erica to find out how the planning was going for their intimate wedding at Castle Ladyhawke.
SGP: How is the wedding planning going?
E: The planning is going very well, for our ceremony, as it is only our parents joining us for that. As you know, we have invited family and close friends to join us the weekend after our ceremony, this is were I think WedText is going to be awesome! We haven’t been to Asheville, NC before and that is were we will be heading. It’s been a bit stressful thinking of things we can all do and coordinating with everyone, as most everyone will be coming from different state.
SGP: Is Logan helping with the plans?
E: Logan is definitely helping with the planning, maybe even a little too much! He is choosing his own tux and making sure his side of the family stays “in the loop” with any plans. I’m thankful he is helpful with everything, it’s taken a lot of stress off of me.
SGP: What is your biggest challenge right now?
Our biggest challenge right now has been keeping up with all of the guests we’ve invited and making sure everyone is able to book a hotel or has somewhere to stay. It’s very hard knowing if hotels/cabins are in the same vicinity as we will be, I’d hate for someone to book something and have to drive a half hour or more to get to things. Google works great, but it’s not always accurate.
SGP: Were you two nervous for your engagement session? Was it what you expected?
E: I wouldn’t say we we’re nervous, we were very excited, just a bit unsure of what to expect. We had a blast! Logan even commented that he, “fell even more in love” with me as we stared into each other’s eyes, so very sweet. We will always cherish those moments, especially because it was our first photo shoot together.
SGP: Which photos are your favorites from the engagement session?
E: Oh my gosh, it is so hard to choose my favorites!! I love the one with Logan and I kissing with the bushes and iron fence behind us, I love the colors. I also love the ones done in the middle of church street and down Philadelphia Alley, so cool. I really love them all, you did an amazing job Sarah!
Thanks for letting us tag along on your wedding planning journey, Erica and Logan! We can’t wait to hear about your wedding at Castle Ladyhawke!
