Will & Carolyn {Historic Rice Mill}

By Andraya Northrup | April 09, 2010

I love my inbox. I must admit when I open my submission mail, I sit back let out a sign of delight. I am tempted to share more than one wedding a day but they are so breathtaking that they each deserve the spotlight. I wish that I had a few more details to share about this couple, because it is clear to me that they have outstanding taste. Carolyn and Will wed at St. Luke’s Chapel and then hosted their reception at the Historic Rice Mill Building. Virgil from CVI Photography & Co was there to photograph the wedding designed by Ooh Events.

St. Luke’s Chapel is a lovely and quaint chapel located in downtown Charleston at the corner of Ashley Avenue and Bee Street. It was originally built between 1825 and 1832. Hurricane Hugo severely damaged the building, and most of its contents were destroyed or made useless. The romantic church was rebuilt retaining almost all of the building’s historical appearance.

The Historic Rice Mill Building is a spectacular waterfront venue located at 17 Lockwood Drive in the City Marina. The Rice Mill offers unparalleled sunset views over the Ashley River.  Built in 1861 and on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s the only of Charleston’s three antebellum rice mills that still stands. While the inside of the building has been extensively remodeled, the exterior hasn’t changed much over the years. The interior boasts classic design features including exposed brick, wide plank wood floors, large double windows and pressed tin ceilings.

Molly Lawson of d’lish discriminating desserts designed the couple’s cake. Her passion for the pastry arts is evident in her unique creations and signature style. Although she approaches her desserts as an artist, Molly realizes that aesthetics alone are not enough. Therefore, she uses only the purest ingredients to ensure that each bite is a delectable taste sensation.
