This preppy casual affair is complete with Bermuda shorts and bowties- all which ties together the kelly green and white color scheme the couple has chosen. The bride and groom chose this theme because it describes their personalities and their goal for the wedding is for their guests to have a fun and memorable night.
Lauren and Maxwell made Charleston their destination! Lauren is the assistant Vice President at an insurance company in Atlanta. Maxwell is an industrial engineer, but his current occupation is as a stay-at-home dad to their son Dean. Lauren and Maxwell met at their local watering hole after a wine festival. They became fast friends and this eventually grew into something more. Before they knew it, Maxwell was proposing to her in her hometown of Port Jefferson Harbor, NY. The two love birds enjoy staying active together. Bike riding, cooking, playing sports, and boating are just a few of the things that the share a passion for.
This event took place at Seaside Point at Wild Dunes. This added to the very southern preppy feeling to it. The event was casual, but still very well put together and executed. Lauren’s beautifully stark white David’s Bridal gown was stunning and fit the theme perfectly. Lauren and Maxwell opted for a first look and it was so sweet, these two are head over heels for each other! Their I-do’s took place with a clear view of the Atlantic. This was a great location because it was at the beach, but not in the sand. It was nice to give off the beach vibe without having to worry about getting sandy. The couple did get some great shots on the beach at sunset. Back at the reception, there were preppy touches everywhere. Custom sunglasses, gift bags with pineapple stickers, King of Pops ice pops, and the list goes on! All of the guests had a blast dancing to DJ Alan Brown, and being united as one big, happy, family. At the end of the night, Lauren and Maxwell were sent off with colorful glow sticks. This also made for some great shots.
This was a fantastic night. Weddings can sometimes feel very prim and proper, but this is an example of one that was all about classy comfort.
