Holly & Nicholas // Francis Marion Hotel

Gold wedding invitations by Dodeline Design

Since most of their guests would be coming from out-of-state, Nicholas & Holly wanted to share their love for the Holy City with their friends and family.  So, they decided on one of Charleston's top venues, The Francis Marion Hotel, to host the celebration on June 4th.  Holly wore a Mori Lee design with a textured lace bodice from Bridals by Jodi with an embellished belt while her bridesmaids donned navy lace dresses.  The ceremony took place at The First Baptist Church on Meeting Street where their nearest and dearest looked on as the couple said 'I do.'  The crowd celebrated by waving their ribbon streamers as the newlyweds hopped in the back of a floral-embellished rickshaw and made their way to the reception.  Ashley Nicole Events designed an elegant Summer reception in the Colonial Ballroom with white and gold details.  The light, airy space boasted soft centerpieces of white roses and lilies by Country & Lace Florist.  Guests enjoyed a tasty menu of Lowcountry favorites before hitting the dance floor to the tunes of Swing On!  Thanks to Riverland Studios for documenting their beautiful day.
