Katie & Luke

April 14

Charleston, South Carolina


Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

For the reception venue, we loved the view of the ocean!  It was such a beautiful view, and guests could stroll down to the beach if they wanted to.  The venue also had a wrap-around porch, so guests could be inside or outside.  For the church, we chose the Summerall Chapel at the Citadel because Luke went to college there.  That was something he’d always wanted to do.  We wanted to give our guests the total Charleston experience.  The wedding ceremony was downtown, so they got to see the city. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. I loved my dress!  I also loved that the flowers on the cake matched my dress.
  2. We also loved the large antique windows for the seating assignments.  When we bought them, they were pretty grimy and needed some TLC.  Luke was able to clean them up and have them look nice without taking away the vintage feel.  It was nice to have some homemade and semi-homemade details at the reception.
  3. The assortment of votives and vases on the dinner tables!  I really liked the look of eclectic centerpieces that still had a romantic and formal feel.

 If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

 Just have fun on the day of!  Everything is done at that point, and little things might go wrong here and there, but it truly is the best day of your life and you want to enjoy and remember every second!  Also, don’t worry about the little details, no one else will notice if something goes wrong or if something is the wrong color.
