Santana and Bill first met through mutual friends and then worked for the same company. After almost six years together, Bill proposed by writing a song, recording it in a music studio, then singing it thousands of feet above ground on a flight to a Puerto Rican vacation. The ceremony was held at 620 Prince in Georgetown, followed by a reception at Maritime Park. Santana completely designed her dress, from the fabric to every stitch of lace and beads, and the gown was as unique as the bride. Bill wore a custom white coat lined in black and the groomsmen donned classic black tuxes. The bridesmaids all wore long black dresses. The colors for the day were black and white with accents of rich, fall shades. The couple wanted everything to be timeless and classic, yet a great party! Creative elements included a beer theme, with a seating chart done with beer growlers and table numbers shaped like beer bottles. Guests enjoyed an oyster roast, filet Oscar and a pasta station. The bourbon bar was named after the pair’s dog, Sunday, and included a signature cocktail called the Sunday Funday. The pair had family and friends visiting from 14 different states, so the whole weekend was one big party. Santana and Bill live in Myrtle Beach.
