The talented mavens of planning at A Charleston Bride are known for their attention to detail, flawless style and impeccable execution. Kelly and John’s wedding last June was yet another example in their long list of swanky Charleston affairs. Melissa and Carrie sent this little gem of a wedding over and supplied their favorite details. The couple wed at The French Huguenot Church.
