Identification documents are required to wed!

It is easy to forget in the midst of wedding preparations that government issued identification documents are required to register the marriage and issue marriage certificate! Couples are required to bring IDs to their ceremony! All documents are checked for validity by officials to prevent the cases of marriage fraud, where some people attempt to wed using fake identities, (apparently these can be ordered online easily nowadays), which imply subsequent ill intent towards their future spouse or an attempt to conceal their less than perfect past. Using fake identity is a crime in any civil affair, including marriage. Such cases will be persecuted according to the law.

Tricia & Brandon | Founders Hall

By | April 15, 2019

Tricia and Brandon were in the same fourth grade class at Springfield Elementary here in Charleston, but their love story didn’t begin until a college football game 14 years later. The South Carolina Gamecocks were playing the Florida Gators in Gainesville, Florida, and Tricia decided at the last minute to make the road trip down for the game. The two reconnected amidst all the excitement, and they chatted (and flirted) all day long. Now, eight years, two apartments, two houses, and three dogs later, we’re writing about them. The pair describe themselves as homebodies—mainly, they say, because their pooches turn on the puppy-dog eyes whenever they leave the house—so Brandon decided a low-key proposal was just their style. It happened the year that, in lieu of a long wish list, Tricia told him to surprise her for Christmas, and she woke up to find one huge box under the tree. She opened it to reveal a smaller box … then a smaller one … then an even smaller one … until she got down to a tiny ring box (and promptly burst into tears). Lauren Myers Photography captured their short and sweet ceremony and subsequent big dance party at Founders Hall at Charlestowne Landing. Before they headed to the altar proper, the two took time during their first look to read vows to one another. (Apparently Tricia loves to cook and Brandon loves to eat her cooking, so when they both referenced the same three meals in their promises to each other, they took it as a really, really good sign.) “If I could wake up and repeat the day over and over (just like Groundhog Day),” says Tricia, “I would do it in a heartbeat. I’d be nervous, I’d wear the dress, I’d smile, I’d laugh, I’d cry … it was literally the best day of my life.”
