This navy and white Charleston wedding on our wedding blog today has stolen our hearts with its Southern charm. It’s pure elegance and simplicity are captivating – as is the beautiful couple! Guests danced all night under the stars at this plantation style wedding venue and celebrated along with the blissful bride and groom. Take a peak at this lovely day – and because no one can resist a good love story, read how it all began!
Lisa moved from CA in 2004 to attend Northeastern University in Boston, but when she graduated in 2007, she moved to Charlotte for a sales job. Missing the city, as I probably would too, she would often travel back to visit friends still in Boston. In April of 2008 she booked a girls trip weekend to watch the Boston Marathon and ended up meeting Scott AT THE AIRPORT on the way home from that trip! She told me she knew when she saw him sitting at the United gate, with his perfect curly hair and marathon gear on, she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to strike up a conversation! So she did what any other confident woman would do! She went and sat next to him! (Good job Lisa!) While I don’t know Scott’s side of the story, I’m sure he didn’t exactly mind a gorgeous, smart woman like Lisa stealing the seat next to him! As it turned out, they were on the same flight home (lucky her!) and both living in Charlotte (Wow! Double lucky!)…. and now, 6 years later, they’re settled in Charlotte with their adorable Golden Doodle puppy, Olive, and tying the knot at The William Aiken House in Charleston! Pretty cool huh?!
