SHAUN + KELLY – OLD WIDE AWAKE PLANTATION

A Shaun and Kelly met in January of 2011, shortly after they had each left their jobs in Washington State and Connecticut to relocate to South Carolina.  Shaun had been stationed with the Navy in Washington for 4 1/2 years and Kelly was looking for a change of scenery and some warmer weather (and look what she found – a husband!)!  They’re such a sweet and down to earth couple who love going to oyster roasts, working out together, taking road trips and playing with their adorable dog, Gunner!  They’re literally the all American couple!  As if their wedding wasn’t fairytale enough…  Shaun’s Navy orders to the USS Mississippi at Pearl Harbor are taking these two newlyweds to their new home in Hawaii next month!!  Congratulations Kelly and Shaun!  Your wedding was absolutely beautiful!

As a nod to the tradition of having “something blue” on her wedding day, Kelly had Shaun’s navy name tag sewn into her dress!  LOVE IT!

JULIA + GEORGE – ALHAMBRA HALL

A George and Julia met through mutual friends while attending the College of Charleston years ago, but it took a couple years before they finally realized just “how awesome each other are”!  As much as George wouldn’t agree, Julia swears she made the first move and asked George to get coffee at their favorite spot, and the rest is basically history!  18 months later, George was proposing with Julia’s grandmother’s ring, which…. get ready for it…. was hand crafted by her grandfather!  They tied the knot in a beautifully sentimental and Christ-filled wedding ceremony under the oak tree at Alhambra Hall in Mt. Pleasant.  And even the 100% chance of rain in the forecast held off for almost their entire day~  I like to think it was just for them!

Enjoy a little sneak peak into their super fun wedding day!
