Myrtle Beach Wedding Photographer | Brad + April | Marriott Resort and Spa at Grande Dunes

We are based in Raleigh, NC but this was my first wedding as a Myrtle Beach wedding photographer. I must say, the venue was spectacular! It was my pleasure to photograph Brad and April’s wedding at the Marriott Resort and Spa at Grande Dunes. This was a destination wedding, so Brad and April each had separate suites on site to get ready, which left us plenty of time for getting some spectacular getting ready shots!

Brad and his family and Groomsmen were ready for the ceremony and gathered in a fabulous courtyard surrounded by columns on three sides. Brad looked sharp as he stood waiting for his bride. April was just glowing as she walked down the aisle to join him. The officiant began the ceremony and he was amazing. He was full of energy and really added a little bit of fun to the ceremony. It was a very emotional moment as Brad and April read their vows to each other. Their words really touched each other. The ceremony was a bit windy at times which made things interesting, especially during the sand ceremony.

The courtyard overlooked a massive pool and gave us the opportunity to shoot a full-family photo from above. The pool was right next to the beach where we were able to sneak off after the ceremony for some private shots at sunset. The light and setting were absolutely stunning. After the formal shots, everyone was served dinner in the courtyard. There was dancing and partying for a few hours, and even the guests in some of the rooms above were dancing to the music.

It was a beautiful moment when Brad and April exited the reception down a staircase under sparklers. They even jumped in the glowing pool in their wedding attire which made for a few fun pictures. We enjoyed photographing their wedding so much! We cannot wait until the next wedding in Myrtle Beach, SC!
