Destination Charleston Elopement

Whew! To say this summer has been a whirlwind is a major understatement. Back to back weddings, kids home for summer, and a husband out of state for over a month have clearly taken a toll on my blog, but I’m excited to get caught up now! Malory and Charlie’s destination Charleston elopement is the perfect way to get back in the swing of things.

When Malory and I first started discussing their wedding last year, she made it clear that her top priority was to have exquisite, personal details, and I think it’s safe to say she nailed it! Feast & Flora Farm created gorgeous bouquet and boutonniere, and The Blossom Shop‘s reception greenery was perfect.

Charlie and Malory met during college in Ohio, so their families had to travel a bit for this destination Charleston elopement. In Malory’s words, “The glitz and glam of big weddings just isn’t for us – but we also couldn’t imagine eloping without our families there to share in our wedding day – so we decided to do a small, non-traditional wedding in Charleston, a city we both love for it’s history, architecture, and picturesque views.

They chose 165 Spring Street as their venue, and omg what an adorable place! If I had to renovate an historic Charleston home, I’d do it exactly like this. The furniture in the house even matched the details Malory had planned! Bright light, bright, clean colors, and plenty of space for everyone make it a great location.

Thanks to Absolutely Charleston transportation, we didn’t have to deal with too much of the 102 degree weather! A minicoach got us down to White Point Garden, and everything went perfectly as far as making sure Charlie didn’t see Malory until she was coming down the aisle. The breeze and the simple altar decorations made the already-beautiful wedding ceremony even better.

Malory and Charlie’s other top priority for their wedding was their photography, so they allotted plenty of time for portraits. You have no idea how happy this made me! I love being able to spend more relaxed time with a couple during their portraits. We were able to find some beautiful, classic Charleston spots, and of course, take photos on the Battery.

There was no rush during their “reception”/dinner, and I was able to sit back and listen to toasts, capturing moments like a fly on the wall, which is exactly what I always hope to do! I know I’ve said it before, but weekday elopements will always be some of my faves!
