Kelsey Whaley & Joe Smith

Thu, 09/19/2019

Kelsey and Joe met while working together at TD Bank. They were the best of friends at work, and even customers would comment on their chemistry. After Kelsey found a new job, the pair decided to become something more. A year and a half after they started dating, the couple enjoyed brunch at Blueberry’s Grill, their favorite breakfast spot, before trying something different—parasailing! While up in the air, an employee held up a sign that said, “Kelsey, will you marry me?” Of course, she said yes. Their ceremony was held in the courtyard at 21 Main Events at North Beach. Since both the ceremony and reception were outdoors, the theme for the day was romantic garden party. The florals were all natural from the courtyard gardens and included mums and lots of greenery. The tables were decorated with greenery, varying-sized floating candles and custom-made moss table numbers. String lights completed the look and guests enjoyed dancing under the stars. The cake topper incorporated the couple’s dogs, who couldn’t attend wedding. Kelsey and Joe live in Myrtle Beach.
