08 Jan Vicky & Qi | Legare Waring House
Could this wedding be any prettier? We’ll answer for you—no! And even better, the Mr. and Mrs. behind it are charmers, too. Vicky and Qi, Duke University grads who are in residency programs in New York, ventured to Charleston for their al fresco wedding at the Legare Waring House, and gave the planning gurus at Ooh! Events one main directive: No pink. We’re nuts for the soft hues of persimmon, ivory, and celadon that formed the palette and washed over the day in florals, bridesmaids gowns, ribbonry, and so much more. And though we’ve not got a shot of it, one of our favorite moments of the day (besides their so-real first look) as told to us by one of the event designers was the story of Vicky’s mother’s toast. A native of Korea, she shared heartfelt words in her native tongue as Vicky’s brother translated to the crowd. Now that’s what real weddings are made of—families coming together.
