Before The Dancing

It was a beautiful day.

The rain had finally cleared out, the clouds had blown away, and it was a warm, sunny Friday afternoon.

Kind of perfect weather for a outdoor wedding in Mount Pleasant.

I had already attended one wedding & reception at the Creek Club at I'on and was excited to see how someone else used the space for their celebration. The two weddings and receptions couldn't have been any different from one another!

After a quick shuttle ride from the hotel to the venue {major points to the bride & groom for that!}, we walked up the stairs of the porch and to the bar. Because yes, they served drinks before the wedding that most people carried down to the lawn to drink during the wedding.

The wedding was short and sweet, punctuated with a fun "I will forgive you!" during the vows and awesome singing from The Plantation Singers.

Want to make your Southern wedding really Southern? Hire that group. They did some sort of Alleluia song when Amanda and her dad walked down the aisle that included parts of Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah, which might be one of my favorite songs ever.

Most of the guys had their eyes on one thing after the wedding: the oyster tables. As soon as the first oysters were dumped onto the table, it was a mad rush to get to them.

Please note the proper tie placement when shucking oysters {& the two pairs of sunglasses in the coat pocket}.

This was their "normal" picture.

& then the party really started.

But that's another post for another day. You know, maybe if I can sort through all of the dancing pictures and figure out which ones to post. There are hundreds. Yes, hundreds. Because my group of friends at this wedding really know how to throw down at a reception.

It is the same group after all that was at the wedding where Patrick and I met {while dancing, might I add} and the same group that had an epic dance off at a wedding 4 months later.

For now, I'll leave you with this view from the reception:

  9. So fun! I love the idea of a live group singing during the ceremony. I've never seen oyster tables at a wedding, but I know a ton of people who would go crazy over them. Looks like the boys are true shucking professionals.
