“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you just the way you are.” This is definitely true for Caroline and James, who first met working in commercial real estate, spending a lot of time together, and then began dating. At first, they tried to just remain friends but soon realized that wouldn’t work because there was more than friendship! After three years of dating, while on a trip at a wellness resort in Miami, James proposed to Caroline during an evening beach walk.

Caroline and James tied the knot on Saturday, March 30, 2019, in the May River Chapel at Montage Palmetto Bluff.  Wedding planner, Ashley Rhodes did an amazing job throughout the entire wedding & her team is the most fun to work with! White flower petals made their appearance in many different places. Guests first saw petals in the envelope liner of their wedding invitation.  My most favorite was Caroline’s stunning veil with little white petals all over it, her reception earrings, and the cake. And to top it all off, flower petals lined the aisle of the chapel and were joyfully thrown in celebration as Caroline and James exited the chapel as husband and wife!

The wedding reception under the tent on the Village Green looked effortlessly chic with airy greenery and florals of blush and white. It was definitely the big party that Caroline imagined it to be! The entire day of the wedding and celebration was very classic, beautiful, and charming!
