Charleston has always been a special place for today's gorgeous bride, Kathryn. She grew up going to Kiawah Island as a child and continued to visit frequently once family moved there. "I love the charm of Charleston and exploring the beautiful streets and always knew I wanted to get married there. When Todd and I got engaged we visited MIDDLETON PLACE and I instantly fell in love with the gardens and the lush greenery and Todd loved that it was on the water. The night after we visited I found several photos of my grandpa and I visiting Middleton together and it was such a sign that we had to get married there." South Carolina wedding photographer ELIZABETH LANIER captured their day with these absolutely exquisite photos!

With a classic style, Kathryn wanted a wedding to match and Kristin from BELLAFARE worked endlessly to execute her vision. "When we found the blue plates at OOH EVENTS, I immediately gravitated towards them and knew that would be my pop of colour in an all-white/green colour scheme. MIDDLETON PLACE is such a beautiful venue and I really wanted to showcase how extraordinary the gardens are and add simple yet elegant touches to make it my own. AMY OSABA created florals that complemented the grounds perfectly and only added to the lush environment.

We have too many favourite moments from our wedding day to name one but we loved every part of the ceremony from walking down the aisle to reciting the vows that Todd and I wrote together, to the kiss and pronouncement and of course all the smiles and cheering! The icing on the cake was the incredible band and all the dancing because that’s what made it such an awesome party!

We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Elizabeth Lanier to anyone hosting a destination wedding weekend. Todd and I have never been “picture” people but it just felt easy with Sarah Elizabeth and Will around. Together this husband and wife team made us feel so comfortable and relaxed the day of despite the tight timeline with all the weather changes!
