Sarah and Matt planned their wedding from all the way in St Louis, which I’m sure wasn’t easy! Choosing their vendors based off of online reviews, Facebook, and websites was tricky, but they absolutely pulled it all together for a beautiful, budget-friendly, DIY wedding. They planned their event for early June, out in the country at a small but beautiful venue called Jackson’s Landing , which is right on the edge of Lexington and Aiken counties.
As we got closer to the day of the wedding, I got to speak to Matt and Sarah more, and hear some of the plans for the wedding. Since Sarah’s dad is Egyptian, her mother Colombian, and Sarah and Matt both grew up near here in the South, there were a lot of traditions and colors coming together for this wedding! Enjoy the fun, laughter, traditional Colombian hats and scarves, and lots of DANCING!!
Even the children were amazing dancers! As soon as the Colombian playlist began, every guest, young and old, came out to show off their moves! The Conga lines were great!
Whether you wanted to dance or not, the family made sure every member of the wedding party had his or her turn on the dance floor! DJ Bob Bonnett played amazing salsa tunes all night, and now I’m determined to learn how to dance!
