21 Nov Ellen & Chris | The River Course
These college sweethearts met while attending Virginia Tech University and fell in love over their shared interests of traveling and food. Chris grew up visiting Kiawah Island with his family and had been taking Ellen there throughout their eight years of dating, so when he proposed, they knew just where to tie the knot. The bride and her ’maids kicked the Big Day off in fine Southern form when they pulled be-ribboned charms from under a baked cake and got ready amidst mimosas, more sweets, and stories about the happy couple. Everyone convened at The River Course for the ceremony and reception, starring the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. alongside Bobby and the Aristocats, who played into the wee hours. Bravo to them all, and to Amelia and Dan, who captured all the exciting moments.
