There are few things we love more around here than seeing a wedding that reflects a couple and their love story. Even better, in the case of Carly and Spencer, their late spring celebration in Charleston not only nodded to their personalities and favorite things, but also, their dreams for their future! In his vows, Spencer told his bride, “I don’t know what the days to come hold, but I have a brighter outlook in sharing those days with you.” What could reinforce that idea more perfectly than a celebration full of sunshine colors, bright signature drinks, and a sparkling exit to top it all off? Y’all please enjoy this sunny celebration!

Thanks so much to Dana Cubbage for sharing Carly and Spencer’s sweet day with us!

I found my perfect dress at the second salon we went to. I wanted a dress that was vintage-inspired and simple, but elegant.

Did you decide to do a first look? Why or why not? We decided to do a first look so we would have more time to spend with our friends and family during cocktail hour.

I was so impressed by our flowers! We had mostly white flowers with some yellow accents and lots of beautiful greenery.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We wrote our own vows. My favorite line of his vows was, “I don’t know what the days to come hold, but I have a brighter outlook in sharing those days with you.”

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Some of the Southern details we included were hand fans, sweet tea, shrimp and grits as one of our dinner stations, and pralines as one of our favors. Our wedding was surrounded by great oaks with Spanish moss, and of course, it was full of love!

Charleston, South Carolina is my favorite place in the whole world! Magnolia Plantation had the perfect combination of Southern charm and elegance that I was looking for in a wedding venue.

We had a three-tiered, simple vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. We also had mini key lime pies, brownies, and cheesecakes. However, many of our guests said their favorite dessert was the s’mores they could make on the fire pit outside!

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Spencer’s brother-in-law, who was my co-worker, thought we’d be a good couple and decided to play matchmaker. Our relationship started out with us going on fun adventures together, and we eventually became best friends and fell in love.
Tell us all about the proposal! The proposal was such a surprise, and one of my favorite memories! Spence and I went out for an evening boat ride, and on the way back, he was kneeling down pretending to check the engine when he pulled out a ring!
When did y’all get married? June 7, 2015
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 86
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. We had an amazing string trio for our ceremony. I walked down the aisle to “Falling in Love with You” by Elvis because we both like the song, and I thought I would be able to get down the aisle without crying if it was playing! We chose “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros as our recessional song, because it fit our fun and loving relationship. We love live music, so we had a band for our reception. Our first dance was to “You are the Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne. It’s such a fun and sweet song!
Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! I wore a garter that was made from my mom’s wedding dress–it had a little blue bow on it, so it was both old and blue. My something borrowed was a small angel pin on the inside of my dress that one of my bridesmaids wore at her wedding. Pretty much everything else was new!
What was one way you saved money or cut costs at your wedding? We saved money by inviting only our closest friends and family members.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? My most memorable moment is probably just being on the dance floor with my new husband and almost everyone else that I love and care about in the world!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Enjoy the planning, even though it is sometimes stressful!
What’s next for you as a couple? What memories are you looking forward to making together? We are enjoying time together and doing some traveling. We are looking forward to making memories together and having a family in the next couple of years.

Despite our 5 A.M. wakeup calls, when Emily and I hit the road to Charleston for our Holy City Hospitality shoot, we were giddy with excitement. The clouds cleared more and more the further south we drove, and Emily’s car was packed to the brim with perfectly wrapped black and white gifts, chic paper details, a gorgeous little Monique Lhuillier, and even Taylor‘s signature hat, which he kindly loaned to us. As you can see, we had tons of amazing details to shoot, and thanks to the hard work and sweet personalities of KT Merry and the A Charleston Bride ladies, the day was just as lovely as we had dreamed it would be!

Thanks so much to our Blue Ribbon Vendor, Dana Cubbage, for capturing all of these moments behind the scenes!

The William Aiken House‘s yellow walls and checkered floor could have been made for this shoot. We loved spending the day at this historic Charleston venue.

This was our first shoot armed with our Oatmeal Lace aprons, and it is safe to say they became a permanent fixture at all SW shoots after that!

KT and Chad are quite the dynamic duo–we always love working with them, and KT is fearless when it comes to getting the perfect shot!

See how this gorgeous shoot turned out here and in V7!
