Lizzy & Daniel met while they were both leading small groups at their church in NC. In her words, “While on a leadership retreat, I remember talking with him for the first time and thinking he was so cute and hoping I would see him again. Low and behold, the night we got back from the trip, we both went to the 5 o’clock service and pulled up next to each other at the same exact time! We ended up walking in together and sitting next to each other. After the service, we exchanged numbers and started dating right away and the rest is history! The overall theme for the wedding is going to be very Charleston and southern. I want our out of town guests to get a true taste of Charleston hospitality! Think pineapples, peaches, and pecans! The color scheme is going to be light blue with an emphasis of light pinks and dark pinks.”

First of all, I can’t even with the precious story of how they met! Second of all, I think Lizzy’s vision came to life beautifully in their downtown Charleston wedding. When I think back to this day, I honestly just remember how relaxed it was and how fun this group was. I met up with the girls at Kinz & Co Salon, then we headed to the church for portraits and the ceremony, and joined everyone at the reception at Merchants Hall. We had a chance of rain, but no reason to worry because First Baptist has a gorgeous covered porch, and an endless amount of dreamy portrait spots just along the street. Lizzy and Daniel are the easiest to celebrate and I’ll always have a fondness for their day!
