Brooke and Matt were married at Boone Hall Plantation overlooking Horlbeck Creek in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. on August 9. “Looking back on our wedding day, I think what made it so special was sharing our love with those who mean the most to us,” Brooke said. “I really feel like everyone got a taste of everything that makes Matt and I who we are.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown with a beaded bodice and ruffled skirt, accessorized with a braided crown updo, while the groom wore a white button-up shirt, khaki pants, and a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore short dresses and carried bouquets of roses, craspedia balls, succulents, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath. The wedding colors? “Neutrals with accents of turquoise, yellow, and orange,” she said. “A subtle yet warm palette for a summer wedding.” As guests arrived, they were encouraged to sit anywhere! But after the ceremony, “my brother led the Grand March, weaving them throughout the cotton deck to the Italian cookie cake we had in addition to the traditional cake,” Brooke said. “The cookie cake and Grand March have been a part of my parent’s wedding, my grandparent’s wedding, my great grandparent’s wedding, and so on. Ours would not have been complete without it.” Along with the three-course fare and late night snacks, there was also a signature drink — “Lowcountry Mojito,” which included firefly vodka, mint, simply syrup, and soda. A nod to the South! “It was sort of a mix of rustic and vintage with the laid back Charleston attidue,” she said. “Decorations were minimal.” Tables were named after streets such as Rutledge, Simons, and Broad. “I truly believe that our wedding was the definition of care free,” Brooke said. “From the casual attire to the all-night dancing, I could look around the room and see the spirit of our families on the faces of our loved ones.”
