I am speechless (as if that would ever happen)… however this wedding was just so breath-taking and beautiful that words cannot express my thoughts completely! It all started with a gorgeous couple and their unbelievable families!
Tabitha and David decided to have their inter-faith wedding at one of Charleston’s most famous and sought after locations, the Citadel Beach House. During the planning process, they picked the most amazing vendors to make this wedding so amazing and special. They began with the photographer they JUST HAD TO HAVE ~ Tracy Turpen was a perfect fit for this very artistic, creative couple.
The bride gets her creativity honestly…her mother hand-made most all of the personalized details that you will see throughout the images.
Tabitha and David took different aspects of their wedding and made them so unique….it began with one of the most beautiful and unique chuppahs I have seen. It was created on site and made out of native driftwood! It was a work of art!
I am just going to start with the photos and chat about it as I go since it really is so amazing!
As guest arrived in the parking area, they were greeted by this lovely sign made by mother of the bride….
This hand painted sign met guests at the road…
Here is that amazing drift wood chuppah!!!
Well the only little ‘issue’ we had was the uncontrollable weather…so we did have to add our ‘rain’ tent for the ceremony but it was still so moving and beautiful!
Now these shots just take my breath and bring tears to my eyes….look at this look and emotion!
This image defines ‘the look of love’!!!!!
The flower girls carried Charleston sweet grass baskets…
Now this was so amazing….her mother created these seating cards, each was a customized small glass bottle with a personalized message in it –
Here is a room view from the balcony in the beach house. I loved their colors of tan, olive and a slate blue!!!!
A view from the entry doors…
Another room shot- you can see the gorgeous center pieces created by the oh so amazing Tiger Lily (Gayla). They were lovely tall vase with manzanita branches with hanging votives and small square vases at the bottom topped with hydrangea bloom.
The tables were dressed with rattan chargers and the table numbers were small wooden boxes and white printed vellum made my mother of the bride ~ each had a votive inside.
The memorable sweet grass cake created by Ashley Bakery!
My favorite….the BLUE candy bar!
The scrapbook created at the photo booth provided by Shutterbooth! There was a line all night!

Here are the invitations these were created by Tara at Jot Paper!
Programs created by mother of the bride.
And the most amazing final shot…
We had the BEST time with this couple and their guests!!!! Alison and David are a fabulous couple- they brought such beautiful details and traditions from two lovely families.
The couple had a very moving ceremony upstairs in the Gallery at 701 Whaley - it was gorgeous under the custom-made chuppah carried in by the couples bridal party. The bride was a vision of loveliness as she was escorted down the aisle by her parents, to a groom that could not stop smiling….
The couple was married by the groom’s father- the ceremony was so personal and touching- with a few ‘light’ moments as in our title of this post…when Tom (groom’s father) went through vows, “For better and ‘mo’ better” was one line that got a giggle out of everyone- there is personal meaning behind this moment that the couple shared!
The reception was downstairs at 701 Whaley in the main room! Anna Cline Catering put together a gorgeous display of amazing food. All of it was fabulous but the ‘piece de resistance’ was the “wedding cake” the couple selected. Anna hand-made the of so beautiful croque-em-bouche.
All the guests had a blast dancing to the Dick Goodwin Band. Photographer Sandy Andrews captured all the moments and Rosewood Florist created the beautiful bouquets.
By Invitation Only….created the branch centerpieces with berry filled vases.
Below are candid photos:
We placed string lights behind the band to add a little texture.
The fabulous Croque-em-bouche!!!
This is the most amazing fruit display!
The groom specifically wanted the wedding cookies from a favorite bakery in New York – so here we are!
