Meet the Riveras | Kassie + Ethan | Florence, SC

Who said you can’t bring Hawaii to little ole South Carolina?! Kassie and Ethan’s tropical wedding was a delight. And if you know Kassie and Ethan, I am sure you know how bright and colorful they make a room with just themselves, imagine that and multiply it by a thousand! The colors used throughout the day were gorgeous, from the bridesmaids tropical green and pink dresses (and I can’t forget the sequins!), to the palm leaf adorned table cloths and runners, down to Kassie’s palm leaf shoes and Ethan’s pink and blue tie, the colors were perfection. One of my favorite parts of the wedding was a traditional hula dance performed by two of the guests, a father/daughter duo during the reception; they danced to the song “You’re Worthy of My Praise”. If you have never listened to this song, you must search for it on Apple Music to Youtube. There are a few different versions out there, I enjoy Passions rendition as well as Jeremy Camps, you won’t be disappointed.

Now guys, I already love to laugh, my nickname when I was younger was “Leah Laughs A Lot”, I find humor in everything and quite frankly I enjoy laughing. There was never a shortage of laughter on this wedding day. Between Kassie and her sister Tracey having way too much fun (yeah right!) while getting ready, to Kassie and Ethan’s first selfie with the congregation right after being announced husband and wife, it’s safe to say that their marriage will not ever be lacking in fun and laughter. I loved every minute of it!

Kassie and Ethan opted for a First Look prior to their session, and it was so sweet, Ethan’s face said it best, just take a look at those photos below. Blown away would be an understatement, his bride was drop dead gorgeous! See for yourself, Kassie was stunning in her wedding gown, even the heat couldn’t get her down! And if there is one thing I will never forget about this particular wedding, it was the heat and humidity. The bridal party knows what I am talking about, it was a scorcher that day!

Everything about Kassie and Ethan’s wedding day was perfect, all the sweet, sentimental details to the guests that celebrated this God given, precious love. I loved being a part of this big day!
