Totally love these gorgeous engagement photos by Virgil Bunao. Crystal + Matt live in Charleston, South Carolina and took their photos at the Hyde Park Polo Club. They are planning a Victorian vintage wedding next year and wanted their engagement photos to have the same vintage + romantic feel as their wedding. Congrats you cuties!
And Crystal shared the story of how they met, which I thought was pretty awesome. :)
Although neither of us ever used online dating, we actually did meet indirectly through match.com! Two of our best friends met though match.com, and when they planned to meet each other in person, they both wanted to bring a friend along. He brought Matt, and she brought me! We have been inseparable ever since that night!
Thanks to Virgil Bunao for the lovely photos, Heidi Perez for the styling and Stuart Laurence Salon for hair + makeup. And for all you film buffs, the photos were processed at Richard Photo Lab.
Beautiful photos, clothes and people. I love the country/chic feeling of these! Wonderful job!
pretty! love her red and purple dress!
Thank you for featuring this. I love your blog!
i hope everyone enjoys them as much as i enjoyed taking and creating these photographs.

This is so cute! Is the original match.com still together, as well…?
How cute are they?!? These are amazing and what a great story…question – are the friends together too?

The bride looks like taylor swift when she is doing side view.
Engagement photos are always so cute. But, these are something else. These are some sort of epic depiction of love. I especially mean that last one. It belongs on a movie poster.
I know the bride to be personally… she is as beautiful in person as she is in these photos! Such wonderful pictures to preserve this special time in your lives. My best to Crystal and Matt!
Thank you everyone for the lovely comments!
It is a true compliment to Virgil Buano for creating pictures that show honest feelings and emotions… He is an artist!
To answer your questions about our match.com friends, unfortunately their relationship was not meant to be… but I guess they had to meet so that I could find my Matt! And yes, they are both in our wedding party ~ and they both take full credit for being our match-makers!
I must give a special thank you to my style icon and friend, Miss Heidi Perez. Most of the clothes and accessories are from her personal vintage collection! I love you lady!
And finally, I must thank my friend and hair styling artist, Katherine Baily from Stewart Lawerence Salon. My vintage hair style is the icing on the cake! Thank you for making my vision come to life :) Love you!
Thank you Green Wedding Shoes for featuring our pictures ~ and for allowing me to thank the people who made these pictures so special!!
Simply adorable! Love her wardrobe and hair. Great lighting and photos. Picture-perfect shoot.
Lovely photos. Love the red lipstick. Reminds me of the late 1950s. The atmosphere and styling are perfect. Wishing you much happiness.
Loving her outfits & the feel of these photos!
I absolutely LOVE the first photo with the horse and them kissing!!! I’m really glad I found this website!
Truly a beautiful location in the Heart of Charleston South Carolina. I can’t think of a better place to get engaged
Absolutely stunning photography! So blessed to live here!!
