Chase me around Charleston

11 May

Day Two in Charleston was just as great as Day One.

It was nice waking up without worrying about an alarm clock. We ordered a room service breakfast and then my boyfriend sent me downstairs to Spa Adagio for a massage while he relaxed some more. After I returned, we headed out for another stroll around Charleston. Unfortunately, the weather did not get the memo on our arrival to town and didn’t cooperate. We ducked into Old Towne Grill and Seafood Restaurant– the oldest family owned restaurant in Charleston. It was a combination of Greek and seafood. I got the fried shrimp and indulged some more!

The rain deterred us from wandering around too much that afternoon so we took our time getting ready for the wedding. Luckily, it cleared up just in time!
Boone Hall Plantation Mount Pleasant

We headed to Boone Hall Plantation and were in awe as we entered through iron gates and drove up a long driveway under arching trees. Words can not do this venue justice.. The bride and groom were also incredible beyond words. The minister knew them well which is always nice and the ceremony was perfect. The smiles on these two were from ear to ear as they walked back down the aisle together.

I have to admit, I always look at the groom the moment the bride walks down the aisle. I like seeing his reaction- and this groom did not disappoint!

Cotton Dock

The whole crew then headed to the Cotton Dock, another part of the plantation. Little touches at the reception made a big difference. There were torches lit as we walked down the path and a blazing fire in a fireplace upon our entrance. A live band kept everyone on their feet.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend was not feeling well and I made the mistake of checking my phone and had received some tragic news,  so we didn’t get to slow dance with each other- one of my favorite parts of weddings. We ducked out slightly early and crashed- I ordered a berry tart from room service before my head hit the pillow though! Nice way to cap off the night!

What do you love best about weddings?
