WOW, I wish I had the words to accurately describe my thoughts on this wedding.  I honestly struggled writing up my feelings because everything from this couple, to the vendor team, to just the entire day was truly magical.  Many people know that I have dubbed Middleton Place as easily my favorite venue in Charleston, and it’s definitely not because we’re preferred vendors there.  No matter what vibe you are trying to pull off for your day, Middleton Place can truly enhance it.  I always feel at peace there, and there is no shortage of locations to take gorgeous portraits.  I honestly can’t think of a venue that better encompasses the charm of Charleston, with upscale European flair as well – PERFECTION. PS – HORSE AND CARRIAGE – I mean is there anything better!?

When Renee and Phillip reached out last year about their Middleton Place wedding, I knew we would be the perfect match. They were already going to wed at my favorite location, and they wanted a day that was fun, celebrated their love, and they wanted it to feel like a garden party – swoon.  Once I found out that they were working with Bouquets and Bowties as their planning team, I knew it was also going to be a stunning design, and Chauncey did not disappoint!

These two have been together for quite some time – since high school! They have two little girls together, who are just darling, and their family and friends truly rallied around them to make sure they had the best day ever.  The wedding party was flawless, and so full of life, which honestly makes the day SO much better for everyone! Truly, I cannot thank everyone involved in this day for making it the best.  We even beat the rain so that Renee and Phillip could say their I Do’s in the Octagonal Garden (one of my fave ceremony locations on property!).

Enjoy this sweet garden inspired wedding day! And if you’re getting married at Middleton Place, let’s talk about how to make your dream day come true!

These. Ladies. Were. Gorgeous! 

Look at this ceremony backdrop. It’s seriously like a painting! 

Hands down my favorite first kiss photo! It’s out of a storybook, I tell ya!

Riding off into forever! 

Picture perfect family! 

Of course, Chauncey deserves a hug! She worked hard to pull off such a dreamy design! 

Adults table versus kids table – so freaking cute! 

The Pavilion has the best light! I could have taken detail photos in here all day! 

These were supposed to be dreamy sunset photos, but IDK I’m feeling the moody clouds! It was literally lightning and probably not our smartest decision, but these two were troopers and it was so worth it! 

That just married vibe. 

And they lived happily ever after! 


Thank you to this FAB vendor team!
