Charleston Weddings {Nikki + Shane} Francis Marion Hotel

You know we love some Charleston weddings, especially when killer photographers are involved.  This past April, the Lowcountry was graced with a visit from the talented destination duo of Kate Botwinski Photography.  The husband and wife team traveled all the way to the Holy City to capture the fabulous Spring wedding of Nikki + Shane.   The ladies spent the morning getting all dolled up thanks to the crew at Stella Nova and the magical brushes of Andrew C. Petersen.  Nikki looked flawless in her stunning Monique Lhullier gown while her husband-to-be looked dapper in his dress blues. They kicked off the perfect Saturday afternoon with a traditional Catholic ceremony at the grand Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.  After saying 'I do', the couple hopped in a carriage for a gorgeous photo session at The Battery & White Point Gardens with their bridal party.  The evening continued with a jaw-dropping reception at Downtown's lavish Francis Marion Hotel where the newlyweds revealed a showstopping first dance that got the party started! a lowcountry wedding blog featuring charleston weddings, hilton head weddings, myrtle beach weddings
