The Love Boat

When Michelle Maxson and Tyler Greenberg began planning their October 2012 nuptials, they were set on two things: A location that had a destination feel and photography that didn’t resemble heavily posed wedding portraits.

They accomplished both at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, S.C., where photographer Scott Chester spontaneously asked the couple to take a canoe ride down a river surrounded by gorgeous oak trees. Chester later worked in postproduction to bring out the earthy shades of the scenery. “When Scott showed us the picture, it looked like we were floating on clouds,” says Maxson. “It looked like a fantasy, which really summed up the whole day for us.”
