Jodi & Justin {The Francis Marion Hotel}

By | July 25, 2011

The moment that I saw this wedding photographed by Sally Watts, I was immediately transported back in time. It has this insanely phenomenal early 1950’s New York feel. There is an old world vibe meets the historical elegance of The Francis Marion Hotel. I had a crush on this affair instantly and then fell even more in love when I learned that the darling groom, not only built, but also hand-carved and burned the symbols on the chuppah where he and his bride exchanged vows.

    Ha! Maybe I should have cloned that out Kim. It was my first “real” wedding, and the bride is a co-worker of my husband’s, so we were guests as well. (Which meant the real stuff instead of a vendor meal-not that I’d be complaining either way! 🙂 )

    I just read the comment by Della at the top of the page. Yes, indeed, the groom is darling. I am happy to be his mother-in-law, and even more happy that my daughter married him.
