A Charleston South Carolina Wedding to Remember

Having lived in the South for over 20 years now, I have to admit that I've truly grown to love all things Southern. And that goes for Southern weddings too! Because what's not to love?

The venues are charming, the traditions are heartfelt, and the celebrations are some of the sweetest I've seen. Make no mistake about it, m'dears — I have a weakness for Southern weddings. And the Southern elegance that Charleston embodies? Talk about a dream wedding destination.

So sit back, grab a glass of sweet tea, and get ready to watch this gorgeous Southern wedding unfold as it's safe to say that ELM EVENTS made magic happen on this lovely, September afternoon and lucky for us Reese Moore Weddings was there to capture it all.

From the designer, "Morgan and Ben's wedding day was filled with with tradition, love, meaning, and praise. When it came to the reception, however, I set out to capture the Southern elegance of Charleston."
