Our wedding took place at a private residence on South Battery in Charleston, SC. It was an absolute dream venue and I’m still pinching myself over it!

My favorite part of our wedding day was our first dance. The giant crepe myrtle tree in the garden was blowing the petals off in the wind and they were falling down over us and it was so beautiful! It was snowing flowers!

Tell us about finding your perfect wedding dress:
I made sure to try a couple styles outside of my comfort zone, but I knew the simple, elegant, clean look was perfect for me! So I was able to eliminate a huge selection of dresses without even trying them on. I just kept it simple because I didn’t want to add additional stress to the whole process. I focused on the vision I had for myself walking down the aisle towards my fiancé and that’s what I created at Magnolia Bride.
What advice would you give to a bride about dress shopping?
Go in without expectations and follow your intuition! You want to feel beautiful, confident, and comfortable. Once those boxes are checked, go with it and allow yourself to have the happy, stress free moment without questioning yourself!
Any words of wedded wisdom?
Take 2 minutes to yourself once you’re totally ready and just look in the mirror at yourself as a bride, this is the moment you have been dreaming about!
