With miles of coastline and beautiful sands, Charleston’s the perfect place for a ceremony by the waves. A recent Folly Beach wedding featured some groomsmen shenanigans, a gorgeous bride, and too many laughs to count. The day began with Rachel meeting up with Jaclyn as she was finishing up her bridal look. Her beautiful dress featured a lace top with plunging back and an airy skirt perfect for the beach. Lace patterned sandals completed the fun ensemble. Rachel snapped a few bridal portraits as Jaclyn was making sure everything was perfect and the bride-to-be looked amazing!
Meanwhile, the groomsmen and their ringleader Casey were enjoying a hot dog bar and some suds before the wedding. Casey’s three-piece navy blue suit with sea-foam tie looked fantastic as he was the picture of calm and collected. Even a quick peek at Jaclyn in her dress couldn’t stir up butterflies, though the smiles weren’t in short supply. The duo looked so great together on the deck overlooking the ocean, ready to tackle whatever came next.
Guests were encouraged to kick off their shoes and head down to the shore for the ceremony. A lovely arbor draped with leaves and a gossamer fabric added a natural splash of green against the tan and blue of the beach. The light-colored wooden chairs added to the airy atmosphere, and we love the candles and hurricane lanterns. The low country flair was so beautiful. Jaclyn and Casey looked adoringly at one another while standing beneath the arbor, reciting their vows. Beneath dazzling sunlight on a gorgeous clear day, the duo became newlyweds and raised their arms in triumph. What a moment!
The newlyweds went on a small adventure with Rachel and were more than willing to let out a little energy by climbing up on a wall and looking out over the ocean. We adore couples that want to break away from the posed portraits and put their own personal touch on a wedding tradition. With their guests partying not far away, they just wanted to be with each other. In the fading light, they shared a few intimate moments, lost with each other in this new chapter.
Thank you so much for letting us join you for such a beautiful day. We want to wish you all the best as you move forward together. Congratulations again!!!
