Beautiful Southern Plantation Wedding: Tanya + Trevor

This beautiful southern plantation wedding is one for the record books! Tanya and Trevor were married this past May at the Litchfield Plantation in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. It was designed by Gigi Noelle Events, who handled an unexpected visitor well: Tropical Storm Ana. Although Tanya and Trevor planned to get married outdoors, they had to tent the wedding at the last minute. Many couples would have been bothered by a last minute change to plans, but Tanya and Trevor just rolled with it! In fact, Tanya was so high-spirited and happy to be marrying the love of her life that the storm did not upset her plans for the best day ever.

The bride and groom worked on wedding details together including making their own invitations, building an awesome beer trestle, and even a huge lawn Jenga game that was painted to match their wedding colors. There were rustic farm tables and a dessert/cake table, which featured “naked” cakes and yummy homemade desserts. They even had a kids table with activities to entertain them. As wedding favors, the couple made their own moonshine to give away to guests. They even had a custom corn hole game made, which was used as a guest book alternative! This is a beautiful handmade wedding at its finest! Read on to see the photos captured beautifully by Feuza Reis Studios.
