More Details: Getting married in Charleston, I knew I wanted a very southern style wedding. My husband and his family are from Seattle, so we had a lot of out-of-town guests who had never experienced “the South.” Growing up in North Carolina, I knew I wanted to bring out the beauty of the south with a rustic twist. We got married at the Magnolia Plantation in front of the Carriage House. We used a lot of natural resources such as sunflowers, cotton, seagrass flowers, and spanish moss in the wedding decor to bring out the southern theme we were going for. Everything just tied in perfectly that day, including my dress.
The second I saw it I fell in love. I wanted a different look; something that hadn’t been seen a lot and this dress was different. Getting married at the Magnolia Plantation, my dress had to have some type of Scarlett O’Hara feel. The second I put it on I knew it was the one. The team at New York Bride & Groom were so complimentary of the way it looked on me. And when they put the veil on me the tears started flowing. I knew it was the dress I had always dreamed of. All around, It was the most beautiful day, and by far the best day of our lives.
