I knew that Kelsey + Nick’s wedding day was going to be special from the very beginning. When she told me her vision was a preppy glam wedding with a focus on their sweet pup, Ollie, I was immediately all in!! With the help of the fabulous ladies at Pure Luxe Bride, her vision came to life and it was pure perfection! Although thunderstorms threatened Charleston throughout the day, Mother Nature was kind to us and we only had a few light showers throughout the day – including a romantic light sprinkle as Kelsey + Nick recited their vows to each other in their beautiful garden ceremony.
Their day started with a sweet First Look in downtown Charleston and before we went back to the Gadsden House for group photos, we had to stop by St Michael’s Church for a few photos. Why? Because when Kelsey was 8 years old, she saw a bride outside of that church and she told her mom “I want to get married in Charleston someday.” Well, that dream came true yesterday and, as if on cue, a horse-drawn carriage tour rolled by as we took photos in front of the church. I like to think that maybe Kelsey inspired another little girl to get married in our beautiful city someday!
After their ceremony, guests enjoyed a selection of low country fare and spent the evening tearing up the dance floor. At the end of the night, Kelsey + Nick exited through a tunnel of light wands and jumped into a fun rickshaw that transported them to their afterparty. The perfect ending to an amazing day. Here are some of my favorites from Kelsey + Nick’s gorgeous wedding at the Gadsden House in Charleston…
