The ceremony pictures are finally here! You can breathe again. You’re welcome.
All day long, it was touch and go as to whether or not we could have the ceremony outside. There was a 100% chance of rain for our 6:00 ceremony nearly all day, but somehow the weather held and we didn’t have a single drop of rain past lunchtime. The ceremony was so perfect but it’s all a blur to me because I was so excited. I’m very thankful we had a videographer.
As always, props to the vendors who put this all together in spite of the number of times I changed my mind about something:
Sara and her team at Stunning and Brilliant Events (nbd, but we are on the front page of their website right now) – the day went off without a hitch because of them!
Paula Player and her amazing photography skillz
Kelly at Little Shop of Flowers…just look at literally any picture below
Jessica for all of our hair and makeup perfection
And, of course, Debordieu for being drop dead gorgeous.
I need to tell you about our “guestbook” – potentially one of my favorite pieces of the day. We ordered a joggling bench (just like a joggling board, but not on rockers) from The South Carolina Joggling Board Company and had our guests sign it instead of a traditional guestbook. We plan to seal it and put it on our porch one day, but I can’t bring myself to put it outside just yet. It’s currently living in our guest room…FYI – the joggling bench was very affordable and the owner of the company was so helpful and quick! We love it so much!
The Charleston Virtuosi killed it. They played “Oh Happy Day” as we walked back down the aisle, and it was as much a surprise to me as it was to everyone else – in making so many last minute decisions on details, I couldn’t remember what I had picked! They could have played anything and I would have gone “yeah, that’s great, just what I wanted.”
Amos performed the most beautiful wedding ceremony I have ever heard, and I’m not just saying that because it was mine. If you live in Columbia, you will want to give Downtown Church a try – it’s so amazing.
Marla & Andy and Mary Rogers & Elliott are MIA. I’M SO SORRY!
NOW we’re married!
The sun came out right after the ceremony and the pictures Paula took are perfection, but you’ll have to wait until next time for those! I hope you enjoyed! Which ones are your favorites?
xoxo, P (no, Boy, I will not stop signing like Gossip Girl)
