 Kelly and Shaun were married at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood, S.C. on April 13. “With me being from Connecticut and Shaun being from Kentucky, we decided to get married in Charleston because that was where we met and lived throughout our entire relationship,” Kelly said. “It was also a good neutral location for both our families and many of our friends.” The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with statement earrings and bracelet, while the groom wore a tan suit, accessorized with a bow tie. Bridesmaids wore long pink chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and baby’s breath. “I knew that I wanted the quintessential Southern wedding,” she said. “I knew that I wanted blush, ivory, and gold. I knew I wanted sprawling lawns, wraparound porches, mason jars, a fire pit, and dancing under the stars. OWA was the perfect venue, and I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.” Guests were greeted with a wooden sign post that said, “1st kiss and 1st dance,” and encouraged to sit wherever they liked. “It was a perfect, sunny spring day at about 78 degrees,” Kelly said. “We could not have asked for a better day.” Cocktail hour began with spiked sweet tea made with Firefly Vodka, of course! Reception tables were decorated with white linens, mini glass vase and vessel centerpieces, and mercury glass votive candles. “If I had to name a few words that I had in mind while planning our wedding, I would say that romantic and Southern topped the list,” she said. “I would say that shabby chic, flowy, breezy, vintage, and rustic also played a part.” The newlyweds performed their first dance to Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing,” and ended the night with a sparkler send-off. Then, it was off to Hawaii! See the full board here.
