It’s been a while since my first post. In the months since I started this blog, I have started yet another job (still in advertising, but a little closer to home), have mostly finished moving into my house, and have traveled to the other side of the world and back on my honeymoon. In the weeks since welcoming the new year, I’ve been reflecting on 2014 and wanted to share some memories from the most important milestone for me last year – our wedding.
The first thing you should know about my husband and me is that we love to travel. Whether it’s to Disney World (we are both fanatics), to far away continents (more about that later), or down to see my parents in South Carolina, we can’t seem to stay in one place for long. My parents home in South Carolina is specifically one of my favorite places on earth. Set in the “low country” of SC, about halfway between Hilton Head and Savannah, GA, the Inn at Palmetto Bluff is the most picturesque setting for a wedding. Surrounded by views of the May River and streets lined with live oaks and hanging spanish moss, I couldn’t imagine having gotten married anywhere else. Given our love of travel and that we decided on a destination wedding, a very clear theme emerged for our September nuptials (thanks to my very clever mother) – “Oh the places they will go” (hence the title of this post).
Seeing as this location was kind of inconvenient for most people involved, our wedding actually became more of an entire weekend of activities, each one more spectacular than the last. It would be too hard to post about all of these events at once, so I’ll just start with The Big Day – enjoy!
Special thanks to the following for making our wedding such an unforgettable day!
