13 Apr Rachael & Paul | The Mills House
Timing is a funny thing—for example, Paul and Rachael both grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and even went to the same high school but never crossed paths. It wasn’t until each had gone away to different colleges and returned back to their hometown for work that they bumped into each other at a trivia night. Some serious sparks must have ignited because soon after, they were an item. In a few years, Paul got both of their families together in the Holy City to witness his surprise proposal; a few seasons later and everyone returned to town for the couple “I do’s” at the French Huguenot Church. One of our favorite moments from their Big Day? That baby-girl-as-a bride“reveal” between Rachael and her father (check out the sweet images from Aaron and Jillian). As for the reception at The Mills House Wyndham Grand, Charleston wedding planner Samantha Anderson designed a space filled with golden décor aplenty. Scroll on to see all of the pretty.
