We are so excited to share this beautiful outdoor wedding held in Georgetown, South Carolina! Carson and Allston were such a loving and fun couple to work with and have a really sweet love story. Carson shared the following with us:
“Allston and I met the first time when we were 12. My sister and his cousin were best friends and Allston’s family was in town visiting so, we all went to dinner together. He was trying to impress me and I’m pretty sure I was ignoring him. His dad was in the Navy so he lived all over the world. When Allston’s dad retired, they moved back to their hometown of Georgetown, SC. Allston was 15 when he moved back to Georgetown and he joined the same small private school I went to. We became best friends and starting to date when we were 16 and have been together ever since! For our first “date” Allston took me fishing in a canoe – he even made sandwiches! Our hobbies vary…for the most part Allston is passionate about hunting and fishing and I am passionate about riding horses. We collect antiques. We bird watch. Basically, we are old souls. Allston makes rustic bowls, trays and candle holders out of fallen trees at his family’s plantation, Estherville.”
Cricket Newman flawlessly designed the entire wedding with a laid back yet romantic atmosphere. Guests enjoyed the ceremony on vintage church pews complete with hand-made blankets in case of a chill. The reception was held just steps away under a beautiful clear tent. The weather was gorgeous for a February evening and everyone was able to enjoy the fire pits and the local beers on tap before the sun went down. We hope you enjoy the photos and congratulations to the happy couple!
