Charlotte Jordan Smith & Joseph Brock Grasso

Sat, 12/29/2018

Charlotte and Brock met through mutual friends. The pair remained inseparable through grad school, new careers, moves and the passing of Brock’s father. After growing together for five and a half years, Brock suggested they take a boat ride in the Georgetown harbor on a warm December Tuesday. Before leaving, he handed her a new collar for Winyah, the pair’s three-year-old English lab. Attached to the collar was a ring. The wedding day was an elegant, classic and timeless affair. The outdoor ceremony took place marshfront at DeBordieu, where the pair said their vows as the sun set. Large planters flanked either side of the aisle and were filled with eucalyptus, ivory English garden roses, magnolia blossoms and white hydrangeas. Inside, the clubhouse was adorned in holiday greenery, magnolia garland and ivory details. Guests dined on Southern fare and enjoyed cranberry Moscow Mules. The dance floor stayed full all night and everyone enjoyed posing for black-and-white pictures in a photo booth. Guests were surprised with a late-night treat—Bojangle’s biscuits. The newlyweds left the ceremony in the father of the bride’s 1982 Toyota Landcruiser, which was adorned with magnolias. Charlotte and Brock live in Georgetown.
