Anna and Bobby’s Charleston wedding was purely romantic. Their love for each other shone through from the moment we first saw them together. Two kids living in New York, planning a southern wedding. We stressed and worried so much about the weather in February for an outside seated dinner, but we ended up bringing romance to the table by adding heaters and candlelight.
Following their ceremony at St. Mary’s Church, Anna, Bobby and their 20-person bridal party boarded a vintage bus and headed to the William Aiken House on King Street. We had so much fun with this wedding design, and it was exhilarating standing at the gate entrance and listening to the guests gasp as they entered the reception space. With having over 200 guests, Anna and Bobby were able to have a 5-tiered cake. I told them, with the cake of this magnitude and designed by Jessica at PPHG, it had to have a stunning display! Enter: the infamous pergola of the William Aiken House lawn. Truly a stunner.
Before dinner, toasts were given by the maid of honor, best man, and father of the bride. Sometimes words at weddings catch my ear, and this line from the best man’s speech I couldn’t forget. “If you want to know what true love is, just look at Anna and Bobby. Not all at once, and not in a creepy way, but just look at them. They are the perfect example.”
Wishing these two deserving souls all the best as they navigate their life together in love & marriage!
