Laura and Ben’s Charleston Wedding!

Laura and Ben were married this past November in the beautiful setting of Charleston, South Carolina.  Their ceremony and reception were held at Tidewater Chapel and Reception Hall.

We remember when they first came to meet with us at our office.  Laura had the biggest smile on her face!  She was over the moon to be marrying the man of her dreams!  We spent 6 months planning the perfect wedding.  We made weekend trips to Charleston to meet with some wonderful vendors and did lots of brainstorming about how to make the day all about Laura and Ben.  We loved the personal touches they decided to include. Our favorite of them all was incorporating Laura’s grandmother’s Bible into the ceremony.  It was carried down the aisle by the ring bearer and he was just as cute as can be.  Then the bible was used for a reading during the ceremony.  Another special idea was this one:  instead of a traditional guest book, Laura and Ben provided 3 lovely bottles of wine and asked their guests to write personal messages to them on those bottles.  Laura and Ben are saving those special bottles to drink for anniversaries or other special occasions.  They also provided each guest at the reception with a personalized coaster to take home as a memento of their perfect day.

Filled with tons of emotion and beautiful weather, we could not have asked for a better day!  Laura, Ben, and their family and friends danced the night away before everyone said goodbye to newly married happy couple :)

Of course, this helped to calm the nerves a little.
