Candice and Christopher’s wedding goal was to make this event a grand party that would be enjoyable for both of them and their guests at the Pavilion at Patriots Point.
These two met in a very unlikely way- on the Long Island Railroad on the way back from a night out in New York City. These two strangers did not stay strangers for long. Despite meeting in New York, the two were ultimately drawn to Charleston (aren’t we all?) to start their life together. Christopher proposed to Candice in front of the Pineapple Fountain in typical Charlestonian fashion. These two love the beach and spending ample time with their puppy. The couple really wanted to celebrate their union and the joining of two families without really getting wrapped up in the details, but most of all, for their guests to have fun at the party!
Candie was a vision in her Maggie Sottero wedding dress from Village Bridal in Babylon, New York. It looked absolutely gorgeous on her with the detailed neckline and low back. Her bridesmaids donned lovely matching navy blue bridesmaid dresses. Her color scheme for the day was navy and peach with pops of gold and silver accents. This was brought out beautifully through her tasteful use of peach florals by Purple Magnolia. Candice’s bridal bouquet had medallions of deceased family members to commemorate those who were unable to be at this very special day. Candice and Christopher opted for cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. Honey’s Baking did a fabulous job with the different flavored cupcakes. A unique element of this wedding was a Polaroid Guestbook. This retro touch was so sweet because the bride and groom are able to have a keepsake of their day with photographs of their guests along with their well wishes on the back of the Polaroid. The ceremony featured a sand mixing ceremony which was beautifully done with mason jars and will create a great little keepsake for years to come. The reception was a giant party with a lot of fun and dancing. The Pavillon at Patriots Point made a great backdrop for this under the tent. All of the rentals were provided by Snyder. The party was catered by Relish Catering Company. At the end of the night, the newlyweds were sent off under a tunnel of sparklers. Candice and Christopher were swept away in a historic Charleston Trolley.
