Janice and Adam were married at Callawassie Island Club in Callawassie Island, S.C. on October 12. “Our venue went above and beyond to make our day special,” Janice said. “They had never hosted a tented wedding on the lawn next to the big oak tree before, but they were willing to try anything we presented them with. We knew that between the venue’s willingness and gorgeous Southern setting, we had found the perfect place.” The bride wore a strapless lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash and pair of peep-toe strappy platform pumps, while the groom wore a custom-made dark gray suit, accessorized with a solid sage green tie. Bridesmaids wore long champagne chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of garden roses, freesias, dahlias, lamb’s ears, and silver brunia balls. “The one moment that has been on my mind is the first look between Adam and I,” she said. “We had this moment out on the dock. Our bridal party joined us shortly after, but it was really nice to have it to ourselves.” Following the riverside ceremony at sunset, cocktail hour and reception began. Guests enjoyed lounging around on couches, sipping on refreshing bottles of water to beat the heat, and smoking personalized cigars. Tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces, mercury glass candelabras with pillar candles, and wooden freestanding numbers.”The food was amazing,” Janice said. “The chef knew we didn’t want a ‘typical’ menu, so he created something that was more unique. It was all delicious. Plus, the music really set the tone, and the band kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night.” The newlyweds’ best advice? “Work with a team of professionals that you trust and feel comfortable with,” she said. “These are the people that will make your day go flawlessly. I was at ease the morning of the wedding knowing everything would be taken care of. Never once did we have to worry that something would go wrong.”

Lindsay and Timothy were married in a traditional Roman Catholic ceremony at Saint Mary of the Annunciation followed by a tented reception at The Island House in Charleston, S.C. on October 12. These two fell in love while attending Clemson University (Fun fact: they were dorm neighbors), and even though they now live in Chicago, they wanted to say, “I do” where it all began. Lindsay wore a form-fitting mermaid wedding gown, while her bridesmaids wore silver dresses in different styles. Groomsmen were more than happy to pose with sunglasses in their gray three-piece suits. The reception was oh-so-romantic decorated with white linens, ivory and blush flowers, and lanterns. Guests enjoyed Southern fare, including a raw bar, shrimp and grits, and a signature cocktail, and the night wasn’t complete without a group picture of all the college alumni!
