Larissa and Jason were so excited to not only be getting married, but after being long distance for years- finally living in the same place together! For their wedding they came to Charleston, Jason’s alma mater where they had a lovely ceremony. After the vows were exchanged the party began at Upstairs at Midtown where the couple enjoyed the company of close friends and family!
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!
Joy and Andrew met in high school and after being friends for a year, the two started dating! The two love writing letters to each other, playing with their dog Thorin, outdoor activities and anything they can compete in. Since Joy graduated from The Citadel it was a natural fit. The celebration with friends and family included corn-hole playing, lots of good southern food and dancing!
Erin and Joe are such a fun couple, and you can tell by all the adorable pictures they take together! The two got married in June at Summerall Chapel with a reception following at the Historic Rice Mill. Tiger Lily florist made beautiful white bouquets that really popped against the black bridesmaids dresses. I also love that the grooms and groomsmen boutonnieres were shot gun shells. Ashley at Ashley and Co Bridal Hair and White on Daniel Island made sure Erin looked beautiful on her special day. Wishing you two many years of happiness, so glad we got to be apart of your day! Erin and Joe were also featured on On The Go Bride and you can check it out here!
Laura and Keane met at a Citadel tailgate and so it was very fitting the two got married at Summerall Chapel. Sara York Grimshaw was the florist and she did such a great job making the ceremony and reception so elegant and whimsical. The reception was held at Harborside East and Cru Catering and Event Haus made sure everyone had a great time and great food. Congrats Laura and Keane!
Taylor is from North Carolina and Robbie is from Georgia, but the couple met right here in South Carolina which is why they decided to get married here! Robbie is a graduate of the Citadel and Summerall Chapel and Holliday Alumni Center were the perfect settings their wedding day! Taylor showed her love for monograms throughout the day, and her dad is a retired Naval Officer so she was delighted to see both her favorite men in uniform. In Bloom did a beautiful job with the flowers and decorations, and what an awesome Reese Cup grooms cake from Sablee Patisserie & Chocolaterie. Taylor and Robbie were also published and you can check it out here!

Caleb and Jennifer knew they wanted to get married in her hometown of Charleston, SC, and since Caleb is a graduate of the Citadel and Jennifer’s great grandfather was an architect of the chapel, Summerall Chapel was the perfect place for there September wedding. Both the bride and the groom love the water so they went with a nautical themed wedding at Lighthouse on the Creek. Country and Lace provided beautiful flowers for the ceremony and reception and Mosaic had a wonderful menu guests enjoyed all evening. Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal had a beautiful cake which had the couples monogram in the center. Caleb and Jennifer love spending time on their boat so they decided they would leave the reception by boat!
