Staci + Mark’s vision for their wedding day was a joyful celebration centered around their families + closest friends.  Thanks to the team at MOD Events, that’s exactly what they got!  Staci is a girl after my own heart who loves color and details – so I was totally in my element.  Her beautiful bouquet by Festoon was a showstopper and I love the Lithuanian ribbon that was tied around the stems.  And the blue patterned china?  So so fun!

Their wedding party consisted of their children – each of them have 2 children from previous marriages – and I LOVED exploring downtown with the 6 of them before the ceremony!  The girls wore gorgeous LulaKate dresses and the guys all looked so handsome in their blue gray suits.  And let’s take a moment to swoon over Staci’s dress!  Instead of a traditional veil, she wore an incredible bridal cape and it was EVERYTHING!!  Such an incredible spin on an old tradition and I am here for it!

In a beautiful ceremony in the garden of 20 South Battery, officiated by their best friend, Staci + Mark said “I do”.  The location was absolutely STUNNING and the garden set the perfect scene for cocktail hour.  Afterwards, guests boarded a trolley and headed to the dock to board The Carolina Girl for the reception.

This was my first time aboard The Carolina Girl and WOW.  What a fun idea for a reception?!  The weather was beautiful and everyone had an incredible time as the boat meandered along the Charleston waterways.  Sunset was beautiful and I just loved this laid back + unique experience that Staci + Mark planned for their guests.  I truly am so lucky to be invited into my couples’ wedding days.  This one was a celebration I’ll never forget!  Congratulations you guys and THANK YOU for allowing me to capture this day for you + your families!!  Cheers!!
