Bride and Groom, Meghan and Nick, were married late summer in what was an absolutely gorgeous Charleston resort island wedding. The entire event was luxurious and elegant from start to finish. The day began at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Sanctuary Hotel where the couple, the bridal party, and guests stayed. The bridal party got ready for the wedding in the Resort's Ashley and Cooper Hospitality Suites. The men of the party suited up in the billiard room while enjoying a BLT lunch, some cold beers, and a few rounds of pool. In the other suite, the Bridesmaids had a delightful time getting perfectly styled and dressed, and having a few snacks before the big day ahead.
