We’ve been seeing a lot of all-white bouquets on the blog lately, and Emily + Brian’s florals help prove why we love seeing them again! The clean and sophisticated blooms by Jade Water Designs tied all the elements of their ceremony together perfectly–all the way from the men’s boutonnieres (dapper, indeed!) to the tall vases at the altar. I can’t stop staring at the bridesmaids’ cobalt blue dresses from Jasmine Bridal. They stand out magnificently against the green landscape at Legare Waring House in Charleston and flanking the beautiful bride, make her look radiant. We can’t wait to share Part II with you! A huge thanks to Virgil Bunao for sharing this wedding with us, and a huge hug to Stacey with Red Letter Events for designing such a beautiful celebration!
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We are both graduates of Virginia Tech, but did not have the pleasure of knowing each other as Hokies. In 2009, life’s events had both led us to Charlotte, North Carolina. I was working at a local hospital, completing my clinical work prior to graduating medical school in the spring, and Brian was working for a technical recruiting company in the city. Mutual friends from Virginia Tech had invited us to play on an intramural flag football team in February. Beers and touchdowns made flirting a breeze, and here we are! We are now living in beautiful Charleston, SC where I am completing her medical residency as a family physician.
Describe the proposal. It was Easter 2010. We had planned to go to church in historic downtown Charleston. Brian seemed preoccupied during the entire service. After church, he asked if I wanted to walk to the Battery and look at all the beautiful blooming azaleas. As we approached the water on the Battery, he produced a beautiful ring from his pocket and I said “yes”.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Comfortable, Southern, exciting.
Describe your wedding flowers: Romantic, clean, and all white.
