While dining separately one night at BLU restaurant on Folly Beach, Erica and Justin locked eyes from across the room. That serendipitous connection, followed by Justin’s three opening words (“Hey there, beautiful”), was all it took for these lovebirds’ romance to begin. Similarly, it took just a sweeping glance at that glorious bouquet by Charleston Flower Market for us at TWR to fall head-over-heels in love with their fall nuptials at Harborside East. The couple, along with Bouquets and Bowties Charleston, nixed soft and sweet and went for the bold and the beautiful, incorporating majestic violet into their table linens, the top tier of their frosted confection, and those mismatched (but perfectly coordinated) bridesmaid frocks. And we have to give a shout out to groom, Justin, for his über-stylish Brackish bow tie. We are over-the-moon happy that Ava Moore Photography was there to document this slice of lovely, from its beginning to its magical end. Cheers to the happy couple!
