HALEY & AUSTIN’s Wingate Plantation Styled Wedding Elopement on Johns Island, South Carolina by Pure Luxe Bride and Catherine Ann Photography
Kristen + Patrick originally planned for a Lowcountry wedding along the river with 100 of their closest friends and family but they quickly realized small and intimate was more their style. They decided on a December elopement on the magical grounds of The St. Helena Chapel of Ease and we're lucky enough to have a clear day with the temperature hovering in the low 70s. Kristen wore a strapless gown and all white bouquet while Patrick donned a grey suit and green bow tie. The guest list was small, only their officiant, Christi Johnson Garcia, and photographer, Christi Clark, were there to witness the nuptials. As the sun peered into the Chapel, the couple said 'I do' before snapping some frame-able photos amongst the ruins. They continued the celebration at Anchorage 1770 in Downtown Beaufort where they cut the cake and enjoyed dinner at Old Bull Tavern.

A few months ago, we shared Karlee + Shawn's Surprise Folly Beach Proposal captured by the wonderful CarolineRo Photography. It was a joyous, low-key evening along the shore filled with touching moments of the adorable duo. It was clear that these two had something special and their romantic Charleston Elopement earlier this year shared the same sentiment. Bride Karlee stunned in a gorgeous strapless gown and romantic shawl that she paired with a bouquet in deep shades of red. But our favorite part was the ceremony. The candlelight, the cafe lights strung from above and the intimate setting creates an enviable backdrop for a touching Charleston wedding! Thanks to CarolineRo Photography for capturing such a beauty! If you'd like to see more, check out the couple's video captured by BlackDeerMedia.
