Southern Charm, Vintage Sophistication

As I prepare to be a bridesmaid this weekend, I couldn’t think of a better location or time of year for a wedding in Charleston.  I never put much thought into it until I was picking up my dress from alterations (a long charcoal grey Amsale number) and came across the September edition of Charleston Weddings.  While I have this thing against reading wedding magazines when you’re not engaged or have any real reason to be reading them, I was ten minutes early(a rarity) and there was nothing else to read…  So, I put my eccentricities aside and I have to say I was truly enamored by this October 2010 wedding at the Thomas Bennett House.  Umm, it’s pretty ideal. 

LOVE the dress, a family heirloom belonging to the bride’s great-great-great grandmother.  Go figure.

Like most southern weddings, this couple opted for food stations over a sit down dinner.  With bistro-style tables, the casual seating and strands of lights lend a romantic european feel.  Add some handsome live oak trees, spanish moss and sounthern charm- you can’t go wrong!  They definitely do weddings right in Charleston.
