Many couples are worried about having a wedding in Charleston in the summer. While we all love the water and the beach in July and August- it can be very hot and very humid. We are excited to share a wedding we did last year for Michelle and Brad. Their wedding was in August, due to life commitments, it was really the only time they could have their wedding. Michelle was concerned of course about the heat- so we set out to find the perfect venue for them – they were planning an intimate wedding of about 60 guests- and both of them loved the water, boating the beach etc. We took them to the Historic Rice Mill and it proved to be the perfect fit- they were small enough to have their ceremony indoors if it was hot- but had an outdoor patio that would be an option if the temperature was more mild. We did end up staying inside due to the temperature but it was beautiful. Below is a photo of their ceremony space.
Michelle and Brad used our louvered shutters to hold their escort cards- fun!
Elaine Mincey -created their oh so yummy cake- simple clean cake design displayed on the Rice Mill’s beautiful vintage sideboard.
White orchids, candles and branches created such a beautiful atmosphere for their seated dinner.
They partied into the nite enjoying their water views from the porches and decks at the Rice Mill- ending it all with a departure by boat- Charleston at its best!
Thank you Michelle and Brad for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
