The Big Day Venues

I have the wedding planning team extraordinaire- my fam!  My parents are two of the most organized people I know and both love to plan a party.   My sister just completed a summer long internship at W.E.D. (Weddings Elegantly Designed) and an absolutely gold mine of wedding knowledge.  So needless to say- I've got the dream team on my side.

It also helps that Lash asked for my hand in marriage almost two weeks before he proposed- so the dream team got together with the groom to be's dream team and voila! The wedding planning is moving at full steam ahead.

We've already booked the date, May 28, 2011 (hooray!!!), the church, the minister, the reception venue, the band, the caterer, the florist, videographer, and photographer.  I cannot believe we have so much accomplished already.

We are going to get married at the Parish Church of St. Helena's (Episcopal) in Beaufort, SC where I grew up going to church.  Built in 1712, St. Helena's is a gorgeous historic church, located right in the heart of downtown Beaufort.

The interior is also stunning.

Following the ceremony, we will then have the reception at my family's place in between Charleston and Beaufort.  My cousin got married at Laurel Spring last May, click here to read about it and here to see more pictures of my favorite place on earth.  This is going to be the view, overlooking the marsh and old rice fields:

This is the plantation house.

I think it is going to be so gorgeous.  I'm so excited to have the ceremony and reception at places that mean so much to me.  Now, we're off to picking out the bridesmaids dresses and finally, my own!  So excited!

Only 257 days to go! :)

  1. I've been so preoccupied in my own little world that I completely missed your big news. I am soooooo happy for you! This is such an exciting time in your life. I hope you and Lash enjoy each and every moment of your engagement.
