Once upon a time, a doe-eyed West Virginia girl fell for one of the handsome Lavin boys. Love, adventure and travel followed. He asked him to marry her. Magic ensued.
That may seem a little dramatic, but after spending several days documenting their perfect wedding weekend at The Sanctuary at Kiawah, it really was like a fairy tale in so many ways.
Monica’s recommended vendors include The Sanctuary at Kiawah, Gown Boutique of Charleston, Berlins (groom’s attire), Colucci’s Jewelers, Tiger Lily Florist, Cakes by Kasarda, Soul Function Band, letterpress by Heather Forsythe.
Chills. We had chills! Entering the narthex, the choir was belting out angelic strains. They sing at only a couple of weddings each year. Since Monica is a choir member, they sang for her wedding. Want to know what it sounded like? Watch the wedding in “The Sound of Music.”
The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat!
Casey, the consummate entertainer, treated everyone to a rousing rendition of “Piano Man.” The crowd went wild!
More dancing, as is always the case when Soul Function plays. Then a final group hug to wrap up an amazing weekend. Sweet Monica was one of several people in the huddle saying she just didn’t want it to end.
