The couple met on Ashleigh’s first day of high school, where they had honors geometry together. They ended up becoming best friends and started dating a year later. The wedding was held at Wachesaw Plantation, where Ashleigh made her entrance in a horse-drawn carriage and the pair exchanged vows overlooking the Waccamaw River. Since a soggy weekend was in the forecast, a stunning tent draped in fabric was set up to keep guests dry during the ceremony and Ashleigh spontaneously decided to walk down the aisle in rain boots. The clouds parted just as the couple said “I do” and a vibrant orange sunset was the backdrop to their ceremony. A photo of the bride’s late mother adorned her bouquet. Signature cocktails included a Lavender in Love and Mint Juleps and the large monogram Kinon crest ice sculpture with fresh seafood was a sight to see. The couple had their first dance to “Still the One” by Shania Twain and watercolor artist Maggie Smith painted the evening. There was also a photo booth and a hand-rolled cigar station. The couple was sent off with a sparkler exit.
