From the bride….
“My now husband likes to say that old books brought us together. We met at the American Antiquarian Society, a rare book library in Massachusetts: I went to the reading room to do research for my Ph.D. in American literature; Paul, who works there, helped me track down some obscure 19th-century titles; and the rest, as they say, is history. When we started looking for a place for our wedding reception in Charleston, which is where I grew up, Paul almost immediately happened upon the website for the Charleston Library Society, a private membership library founded in 1748. The absolutely beautiful reading room and the connection to our own story of finding love in — of all places — a library made it the perfect, if somewhat unexpected place for our reception.  Celebrating our wedding surrounded by our wonderful families, good friends, southern food, and old books made for the ideal wedding day.”
