Madison and Charles’ Beach Wedding!

What better wedding to share with you right now in cold, gray December than this sweet beach wedding from warm and beautiful October?

Madison and Charles were married this past October in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina! Their ceremony was oceanfront with dinner and dancing following at the Surf Club. This was the perfect place for Charles and Madison to get married. They have many memories of spending time together at the Club and the beach with Charles’ family for vacations.  Madison’s main goal was for everyone to be able to come together for a joyous occasion and feel comfortable and at home. She made sure her wedding had a touch of the classic beach feel, but more than that, she wanted everything to be carefree and beautiful for all guests traveling near and far to enjoy!  She and Charles encouraged their guests to let loose, kick off their shoes, and enjoy the sun-kissed sand between their toes.

After the ceremony, guests were invited inside the Surf Club where Men of Distinction were an absolute blast and had all the guests on the dance floor!  At the end of the night, Madison and Charles hugged and kissed all their wonderful family and friends before running through a tunnel of sparklers and hopping into The British Taxi!

Madison and Charles, thank you so much for allowing A Southern Soiree to help you plan such a wonderful day! You two were such a pleasure to work with, and we love you for writing this review!

 I don’t know where to start! I had the best experience with a Southern Soiree! My wedding coordinator Gina threw me the wedding of my dreams! The first time we sat down together we came up with a theme and a budget. She 100% respected my budget, never strayed from our overall theme/ vision, she was always in a good mood (not sure how that’s possible but its true), she kept me sane, responded promptly and delivered A+ service. But most of all she really cared. She bent over backwards to make my special day perfect. And as corny as it sounds…I have ZERO idea how I would have done it without her. I highly recommend her and The Southern Soiree. Oh and so does my husband 🙂

A big thank you to Anne Rhett Photography for capturing all the fun and emotional moments of the day!
