Picture this... Florence + Shawn planned their dream wedding for a beautiful, mid-September weekend, at the historic venue, Magnolia Plantation. They had their vendors booked and their guests were scheduled to arrive from not only across the United States but from across the pond in the United Kingdom as well. Everything was ready to go. Timelines were made, flowers were purchased, the food was ordered, and then everything stopped.
With Hurricane Florence making her grand entrance the weekend of Florence + Shawn's big day, we were forced to shift plans and with the incredible guidance of their wedding planner, Erica Peper of Peper Events, we decided to postpone their dream wedding until May the following year. Instead of letting the change of plans rain on their wedding parade, Florence + Shawn stayed calm, decided to start making new plans, and we laughed about the irony of the freakin' Hurricane's name. There certainly was only enough room for one Florence on their wedding weekend and with a strong team of vendors, we were determined to give this sweet couple the wedding they deserved.
Florence + Shawn were finally married on May 10th, 2019 on the most beautiful Charleston summer day amongst their closest friends and family. You could feel the utter joy radiating from every person in attendance, making their new wedding date, a day Florence + Shawn will never forget.
I am so thankful that this incredible couple wanted to push forward with their wedding, despite the curveballs that were thrown their way. They are the definition of perseverance and I could not love these two more! Their wedding was worth the wait and I was truly honored to have been there to tell their love story!
