A Real Celebration! | Charleston Wedding Photographer | Melissa & Beau's Pepper Plantation Wedding

Weddings are the celebration of a couple joining together, and this Charleston Wedding Photographer knows having all of your family and friends with you is what turns any event into a real celebration! When Melissa and Beau think of their wedding, they cherish the fact that all of their loved ones could join them for their big day! However, it wasn’t just family, friends, and the Bride and Groom coming together, but, this also marked two families being brought together to make one happy family for Melissa, Beau, AND their sons! Their two boys are both very charming and each looked dapper in their suits the day of the wedding. Everything was just excellent, making it a pleasant day for all! 

When asked, what advice Melissa would give another bride on how to fully enjoy her own day too, she said,  “Don’t stress the small stuff.”  Letting little things bother you can become overwhelming, but Melissa said keeping that phrase in mind helped her relax and have the best time! The Bride and Groom also chose to help minimize stress with a little “one-stop shopping” and used Duvall as their caterer, bar services, and event planner. That left just a few other things to decide in the wedding planning process. The couple selected Charleston Flower Market for the finest bouquets and arrangements; they chose Charleston Uplighting for their beautifully done event lighting; of course, the best Charleston Wedding Photographer had to document the big day (We just LOVE that Melissa and Beau think Valerie & Co. Photographers is the best!); and they picked a wonderful wedding venue, the Pepper Plantation, to hold their event. Pepper Plantation is located in Awendaw, SC, just outside the busy and bustling historic city of Charleston. The plantation pavillion is described as a classic but rustic "barn-inspired pavilion with deep Lowcountry-style porches, exposed wooden beams, massive indoor/outdoor fireplaces", a cozy fire-pit on the lawn, and a dock on the water with a charming gazebo at the end. All of these stunning and unique features made the best location for Melissa and Beau's November Wedding! 

That day, the event and the couple looked perfect and you can tell by the way that these two look at each other that they feel they're with the perfect person :-) Everything seamlessly came together for Melissa and Beau and at the end of the night their celebration came to a close with the Bride and Groom ridding off in a white vintage Rolls Royce "get-away" car from A Charleston Wedding; on to their next journey together!
