Infused with coastal charm and classic details, this affair is Lowcountry at its finest.

From the Bride…
What was your vision for your big day? Where did you find inspiration?
I envisioned my wedding being an elegant fairytale with coastal charm. Joe and I have spent some of our favorite days out on the water in Beaufort so we wanted others to experience the seaside beauty of this quaint little town. Kate Middleton is my daily inspiration. I wanted everything to be traditional, classy, and truly one-of-a-kind just as she would have it.
What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
I had so many favorite moments from my wedding day. One that really sticks out is dancing with my mother and sister to “I Say a Little Prayer” from the movie, My Best Friend’s Wedding. It’s one that we all three used to listen to in the car together when my sister and I were younger so it just brings back a lot of good, happy memories.
Any advice or suggestions for future brides?
Don’t stress the small stuff… Like whether the tablecloths are going to be floor length vs. Tucked under the table. I can’t tell you how many small details I thought too hard about when in the end, everything turned out beautifully.
What’s next for you guys?
Farm life. I’m becoming a farm wife! Joe is a fourth generation farmer so we’ll be putting roots down in his South Carolina hometown.
