We love southern weddings! So we’re happy to be featuring Rebecca and Wes’ gorgeous wedding at the Bonnie Doone Plantation. It was a beautiful day in May just outside of Charleston among the sprawling plantation where Rebecca and Wes said “I do”. Their wedding details include blue colors, burlap-wrapped decorations, mason jar drinking glasses, and a thumb print tree guest book. Corrie from MCG Photography captured their entire day from start to finish. See the photos, read about the couple and hear how they met after the click…
Bonnie Doone Plantation Wedding
Corrie tells us, “Wes original proposal plan was ruined with a torrential downpour, so plan B was a proposal at Rebecca’s family home in front of their collective future family. The two selected Bonnie Doone Plantation for their vows and celebration. They were surround by friends, family, history and nature.”
Rebecca says, “We met at church in 2011. My Sunday school teacher had asked him to come to our class one Sunday morning. My crazy teacher then proceeded to tell me to “look pretty and wear deodorant”. Obviously people wanted us to be set up. So that was our first official meeting. Then I was the one who had to ask him on a date for the first time. I found out he liked to ride his bike so I asked him if he wanted to go to JI county park for a bike ride (which is totally not like me to ask people out). He made homemade hot chocolate and we rode and had a little picnic.”
Rebecca tells us, “My favorite part of our wedding day was seeing him for the first time, and the best man speech. I also died laughing when he saw my sister, the tomboy, for the first time in a dress, hair done, nails done, makeup on and he said, ‘Whitney? You’re hot!'”
