Somewhere between the first and last image of this wedding lies my happy place. A little spot where approachable style reigns king and shades of pink and peach live in perfect harmony. Of course, one such dream spot isn’t made possible without fabulous work of Shannon Michele, The Burlap Elephant, Branch Design Studio and Ooh Events, and to get your hands on even more, pay a visit to the gallery right over here.
They met and quickly became inseparable, bonding over a love of travel, tendency to adopt any stray animal to cross their paths, and a fondness for British television shows. After receiving her father’s permission, Tony proposed to June on his birthday. The best birthday gift she could ever give him, he said, would be her hand in marriage.
They knew they wanted a small, informal fall wedding and realized that her parent’s backyard, which borders the Wando River, would be the ideal location. Katie from the Burlap Elephant helped June achieve the rustic-chic style she desired, Whitney from Branch Design Studio created the amazing, highly-textural floral arrangements (highlighting the warm peach, pink, gold and burgundy tones of fall), and Shannon from Shannon Michele Photography captured every moment of the festivities.
The bride would like to say a special thanks to her mother for her patience, her father, for his hours spent ensuring the yard was at its most beautiful, and her parent’s neighbors, who agreed to have the dock-constructing barge they had hired moved for the weekend so as not to detract from the aesthetics and thereby saving the bride from heart palpitations. The couple will honeymoon in the United Kingdom this spring.
