Chris & Sarah's Folly Beach Wedding

Any wedding where you can walk to all venues {including where you're staying} is a perfect wedding in my books. Throw in the fact that it was a beautiful day at the beach?



Yup. Totally ok with this wedding weekend.

Patrick and I walked around Folly Beach early that Saturday morning, hitting up Lost Dog Cafe {and their mason jar mimosas} before walking over to the pier.



My parents might correct me on this, but I'm fairly certain that I've never been out on a pier before. It required photo documentation.


After a day out in the sun on the beach, we got all fancied up for Chris & Sarah's wedding.



They were married on the front lawn of a cute little church on the island and their reception was at the Pelican Watch Shelter on the other end of the island. The views were amazing - you had the moon rising over the ocean on one side and on the other, you had the sun setting over the marsh. Best of both worlds!



Plus, they look a little happy, right?


And me? Well, I was happy when I heard that we were moving on from the appetizers to the main course. Someone said they had shrimp & grits and the boys took off for that. Then I heard that there were chicken fingers and a mashed potato bar?


I wish I could tell you that I only had that massive plate of mashed potatoes.

... but that would be a fib. I definitely had two plates. And then I stalked the professional photographer doing his thing.


I wasn't kidding about that sunset!




We did a lot of dancing because hey, when you date a guy who refuses to get off the dance floor, that's what happens at weddings. There were quite a few dance circles and a dance tunnel? I'm not even sure that's the right word.

Then there was the impromptu post-reception party that started with a wild golf cart ride back to the house and ended with some of the best pizza ever.

All in all, pretty awesome wedding. Congratulations Sarah and Chris!

  4. I LOVE when everything is walking distance for a wedding – it makes it so nice! The beach looks gorgeous and the mashed potato bar… perfect!! We had one at our cocktail hour and it was a hit – who doesn’t love a potato bar?

  7. I like when weddings are more about having a good time than being over-the-top expensive and luxurious. This seems like it was one of those. Folly Beach is pretty; I go there a few times a year to see relatives.

  10. I never thought that beach weddings can be so beautiful. I always thought that booking a traditional wedding location venue is the way to go but after watching these pics I must say that I was wrong and if organized properly, they can be awesome too.
