The Couple: Kim and Drew
The Wedding: 4.17.10 – The Legare Waring House, Charleston, South Carolina
What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Charming, elegant, romantic
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We were inspired by Charleston’s beautiful southern charm. We both have spent a lot of time on the water so we knew we wanted it to be a part of the theme in our wedding as well. Both Drew and I love nature and beautiful settings and when we saw the property with the oak trees sweeping down and the water right next to the reception site, we knew this would fit our personalities perfectly! We were looking for something casual yet enchanting and the Legare Waring House provided all of it!
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? I enjoyed spending the day on the property getting my hair and makeup done and peeking out every now and then to watch this beautiful wedding come together. I was so happy when we came back from taking pictures and walked up to the tent full of family and friends – seeing everyone was beautiful. We did a served a style of cooking called Southern-Asian Fusion, which I absolutely loved! We had items like shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, red curry chicken and sesame scallops. We had cupcakes instead of a wedding cake and I felt like everyone got to choose their favorite flavors, which made it more unique! My favorite memory aside from saying I do, was dancing the night away! Drew and I had the best DJ from Lee Edwards Entertainment and whenever anyone talks about our wedding, aside from the wonderful ambiance, the DJ always gets overwhelming praise!

Beautiful florals. Love the idea of adding a jewel to the satin wrapped stems. I think this is an easy to do idea that DIY brides can use as well!
Love this ceremony location! So perfect under the natural archway created by the trees. Its like nature’s church and I like that. :)
Wow, this is so fresh, I love it!
so beautiful. The tree tunnel is stunning.
I love your photos… and i adore the vintage necklace.. just wonderful!
Wonderful photos, wonderful wedding! And astonishing color palette! thanks for sharing!
By far the most enchanting setting. The wedding was perfect, bride and groom beautiful and the most handsome wedding party! The attention to detail amazing. Just when you think they couldn’t think of anything else to compliment the scene and make you feel more welcome, they serve the perfect cocktail, a beautiful green apple martini! Drove down from Richmond,Va., for this very special day and had the most wonderful time. Danced our feet off all night long. I don’t think I have ever seen a bride and groom have as much fun at their own wedding as Kim and Drew did.
I’m loving the Blue/Green combo, the invite/stationery is so colourful! I love it.
