Lindsey + Marc | Kiawah Island, SC

It’s hard to go wrong when you have a wedding on Kiawah Island and when you pair that with these two love birds, it truly sets the tone for some heart-stirring moments. Lindsey hails from Georgia and Marc is originally from South Africa. They both have a mutual love of travel are also two of the most genuine, big hearted people that you will ever meet. Lindsey was voted “most likely to save a life” in high school, so it was fitting that shortly after their wedding details were finalized, she was sent to Africa with the CDC to do research on the ebola epidemic. A destination wedding that gathered loved ones from around the world was apropos. After exchanging vows in a ceremony officiated by the bride’s mother under threatening storm clouds and gusty winds, their reception paired Southern fare and South African wine (produced by none other than one of Marc’s groomsmen). There was also some questionable dancing that one can only assume is native to Marc’s original hometown, though it may have been something he picked up in college. Marc’s adorable daughter Olivia was the flower girl and it’s a toss up between her and the bride for the happiest girl there. And let’s take a moment to talk about those bouquets, the tiered wedding cake and Lindsey’s gown and how stunningly she wore it! It would seem that it’s no coincidence that it’s name is “Emerald” and it reminds you of just that in style and color…may it bring them good fortune in their marriage just as emeralds are believed to do. Their honeymoon destination (Belize) was a surprise to Lindsey but the safari themed getaway golf cart just might have tipped her off. Can’t wait to see where the rest of their journey takes this sweet family.

Kerri and Bert | Andrews, SC

Winter weddings are a breath of fresh air here in the South, especially when they are as charming and inviting as Kerri and Bert’s December celebration. Once the 12.13.14 date was nailed down for their wedding, they struggled to find a reception site large enough for all their friends and family, so they ended up having it at Kerri’s parent’s farm in Andrews, South Carolina. They were married at Bert’s family Church and then danced under the stars (and heaters) on a giant field that was tented and then lovingly decorated by family friend Michele Kirkland. The bride opted for a first look with her daddy that had him choke up a bit and a “first touch” with her groom that was equally emotional. Their minister led them in a short prayer just before the ceremony, which was held at sunset. Their seasonally appropriate hashtag was “The Merry Kellahans” and now they’re even merrier because they’re expecting a baby boy in the fall!!
Oh, did I mention some details that I loved from the reception, besides the fact that it was on her parent’s farm? (I have a soft spot for gatherings held at home.) How about all the elegant and subtle touches of Christmas? The guests signing their names on ornaments and leaving them on a tree? And they had a s’mores station?! You’re welcome for that visual, now how about those pictures to go with them…

Kathryn + Brian | Charleston, SC

You know that story that starts with, “They both lived in New York, he saw a beautiful girl from afar walking down the street, and he knew he had to meet her. He finds out that they both work in the same office (gasp) and now he has his chance…they end up falling in love, getting married and now they are starting their happily ever after.” This is that story. Seriously.
Kathryn and Brian live and met in New York, they both work in finance and were office mates long before they started dating. Of course Kathryn remembered notable “firsts” like their first kiss but it wasn’t until their wedding ceremony that she found out Brian remembered the first time he set eyes on her. He spotted her walking on the street in Midtown in the middle of the morning rush crowd, a tall blonde in a black dress, and much to his relief she wound up walking right into the same office as he did. 8 years later with the help of Cibi Events, they tied the knot at Lowndes Grove under a clear blue sky that made their bright color palate pop even more. All those deep pinks (even her nails!!) and the blue maids’ gowns from Amsale would leave anyone spellbound with delight. There was the sweetest first dance with Brian and his mom, a flower girl that almost stole the show, a naked cake with luscious cascading peonies and the bride playing an epic air guitar on her leg in 4 inch Jimmy Choo’s. TWICE. Quiana Parler has that effect on people. Finish with a sparkler sendoff in a Bentley = wedding perfection.
