Mary and Gene

When it came to time to plan their wedding Gene wanted to keep tradition and have the military type wedding at the Citadel. The two wanted to incorporate the traditional military wedding with a laid back beach feel for the reception. They also wanted to incorporate Charleston culture into the reception because they knew it would be a destination type wedding since all of their families are scattered across the US. As a fun touch Mary and Gene chose to go with Shag dancing and lessons, low country boil and pulled bbq pork, and a sword line at the end of the ceremony to keep with their Charleston/Military them! To top off the fun Cocky the Gamecock even made a surprise appearance complete with dancing!

Laura and Lance

Laura and Lance met at a wedding they attended for mutual friends. After meeting and falling in love the two decided they wanted to get married in the city that they have been vacationing at for the last few years together. They wanted their day to include their love of travel as well as the people closest in their lives to celebrate their new marriage! The ceremony and reception were at the Historic Rice Mill in downtown Charleston- a venue that boasts waterfront views as well as old Charleston charm. The two had a sweet ceremony followed by a night of dancing and fun!

Whitney and Christopher

Whitney and Christopher had a beautiful wedding at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church with a reception following at Patriots Point Links.  Holly at A Charleston Event did a wonderful job helping Whitney created the perfect day around her beautiful coral and navy colors.  Paper Dolls Wedding Hair and Make-Up had Whitney looking beautiful as she walked down the isle to her groom.  Classical Charleston always brings a wonderful ambiance to the wedding ceremony.  Whitney and Chris had several personal touches to the evening including:  Crab Cakes to represent Chris’s hometown, seagrass flowers to represent South Carolina, where Whitney went to college, and succulents to represent the state they live in, Arizona.  We enjoyed getting to party and dance to a new band out of North Carolina, The Band Punch.  It was a beautiful and great day had by all!

Malley and Austin

From the first time we met Malley and Austin for their engagement session it was obvious how in love this couple is! Since we had done photos of the two of them in the summer we were so looking forward to their November wedding at Middleton Place. Austin and Malley wisely chose Holly Simpson with A Charleston Event to coordinate their wedding day. Holly worked with Malley to put together a fun, relaxing and beautiful wedding. Malley was a gorgeous bride in a dress from Gown Boutique of Charleston and flowers from Keepsakes Florist. The ceremony was filled with thoughtful words and happy tears! After the ceremony was a celebration of the couples love that included Finger Snappin Entertainment, food by Middleton Place and cake from Cakes by Kasarda. It was such a joyous day for all! The happy couple danced and laughed with family and friends and ended the night with a sparkler exit and a kiss!

Whitney & Kyle

Whitney and Kyle’s were married in June, and they had a beautiful Charleston wedding, with lots of southern accents and little glitz and glamor!  The ceremony was held at St. Andrew’s Historical Church in Mount Pleasant and a reception following at The Mills House downtown.  I loved the glitter monogram that Cakes by Kasarda incorporated on the cake!  Vanity Salon had Whitney looking her best as she walked down the isle to her groom.  Kyle and Whitney did not ignore the fact that they were married on Flag Day, and  they had a custom flag made for the occasion that was waived as they made their big exit.  We are so glad we got to be apart of Kyle and Whitney’s special day! tapp-0202 tapp-0219 tapp-0327 tapp-0545 tapp-0548 tapp-0551 tapp-0607 tapp-0666 tapp-1018 tapp-1019 tapp-1020 tapp-1339
