Ellie & Jack were supposed to tie the night on October 8th, 2016, which for those of you that may remember, was the week that Hurricane Matthew was headed for our beloved Lowcountry coast. As the date neared, the couple (and their vendors) frantically kept an eye on the weather. But by Wednesday, the Governor called for a mandatory evacuation and the couple knew it was time to reschedule.

“Looking back, it is quite comical how everything happened. I honestly wouldn’t change any of it if you gave me the chance. Neither of us is nervous excited like before, it’s a different kind of excited than before…more like a deep in your heart, overwhelming excitement…almost like pure joy. It’s hard to describe, but it’s a wonderful feeling! Jack and I have grown together in the past 6 months more than we have in our entire 6 years together. I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason, and I think Jack does now too! True love is so incredibly resilient.” Six months later, on March 18, 2017 the couple tied the knot.
