My heart warms every time I get to see a wedding where high school sweethearts walk down the aisle. And it's not only because me and my husband fell in love in those same years, but it's also because of the ease and comfort between the lovebirds that makes this type of wedding so special. And when it comes to this little number from Ashley Seawell Photography, special it is. Surrounded by the charm and gracefulness that can only be found in the South, every detail from Ashley Rhodes Events at The River Club at Oldfield is filled to the brim with the kind of love that never goes out of style. See it all right here in the gallery.
From Ashley Rhodes Events... Brooke and Jeffery, high school sweethearts, set their Lowcountry wedding along the Okatie River on the grounds of the historic Oldfield Plantation. The couple started their day in private plantation cottages, where they spent time with childhood friends and family before a wedding in their home church in quaint Ridgeland, South Carolina. Brooke and Jeffery wanted their guests to feel as if they were "coming over for dinner" after the ceremony. They utilized the historic plantation home, its porches and lawn to host a buffet-style, southern dinner, complete with sweet tea, before dancing the night away with family and friends. At the evening's close, they drove away (open air) under the starry Lowcountry sky.
