Texas came to Charleston for this Southern wedding! Leah’s elegant and timeless style paired with the historic beauty of the William Aiken House created the most classic affair. I am not a strong advocate for white bridesmaid’s dresses, I mean, HOW CHIC!
Even though a fluke tropical storm hit us hard all day long, these two didn’t let the weather ruin their celebration. After all, the bar still opens when it’s raining, am I right?
We moved the ceremony inside, but who else can say they got married in a 19th century parlor? Dinner was served station style on the 2nd floor of the historic home, and dancing took place outside under a tent in front of the carriage house.
To be honest, not much went according to plan this day. From the ceremony and cocktail hour being flipped from outdoors to indoors, to the band’s sound system cutting out during first dances, to the Pedicab not being a valid getaway vehicle in the pouring rain, there were a lot of substitutions and a lot of backup plans. (Including calling my husband in off the couch to drive these two in a sheltered car to their hotel after the wedding!)
Leah and Zach didn’t let the weather hinder their attitude, and that is the best thing you can look back on about your wedding day. While it would be really easy to sit back and be disappointed, I can’t imagine looking back on your wedding day with that type of regret. So here’s my kudos to these two: for handling the day with admirable grace and radiating laughter and love through it all.
Wishing your new (and growing) family all the very best!
