I always look forward to Charleston weddings with all of the city’s history and unique settings.
A significant amount of rain over several days didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits as Lucy and James prepared for their wedding Saturday at the historic First (Scots) Presbyterian Church on Meeting Street.
Lucy looked classic as she wore the veil her mother wore at her wedding. While the rain made outdoor photography difficult, we did get a chance to take some photos outside and the soft light made for some great portraits.
I knew the minister, Dr. William Wood, looked familiar and it turned out I had worked with him at his home church, First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte.
Although Lucy’s parents live in Charlotte, they are long-time members at the Yeamans Hall Club and that is where Lucy wanted her reception. Many of the guests stayed at cottages there.
Thanks to Charleston wedding planner Calder Clark of Blue Moon Events, who did a great job keeping everything on track despite the rainy conditions. The band Party on the Moon out of Atlanta was amazing. With 13 musicians including a horn section and five singers, the party never stopped and the dance floor was full the entire night.
It was such a pleasure working with Lucy and James and their families and I wish them all of the best when they head back to New York to live and work in the Big Apple.
