Juliet of Juliet Elizabeth Photography is not only one of our very favorite people in Charleston, but she is also so incredibly talented it takes our breath away just a little. This spring soirée in Charleston tops the list of our all-time favorite weddings on B&B, for so, so many reasons. Megan is one of those Southern brides that embodies the grace, glamour and overwhelming beauty of a classic bride. The day was gorgeous, with everything in full bloom, and the Stono River is a backdrop out of my very best wedding dreams. The soft pinks, golds and creamy whites were the icing on the cake, and we simply could not have asked for more.
From the bride....
Soft, neutral color palate with a touch of gold glitz. Southern food including fried pickles, shrimp & grits, pimento cheese and Lowcountry egg rolls (pulled pork, collards, corn and a peach barbeque sauce). Signature drink - The Bakerita. Dancing the night away under a clear top tent to the amazing tunes of Quiana Parler & Friends. While the best photographer in Charleston, Juliet Elizabeth, snaps away. Departure? The groom's family owns a 51 ft sportfisher.

We enjoy watching college football together, even though we cheer for different teams, spending a lot of time on our boat, hanging out with our friends, families and especially our dog, Brady.
Short version - We met through a mutual friend that I went to high school with, and Cameron lived with in college.
Long, a tiny bit embarassing on my end, version - (As told by Megan): A big annual oyster roast was coming up, and I was looking on the Facebook invite to see who would be there that I knew. I stumbled across this guy named Cameron Baker who was super cute. I looked to see if we had any mutual friends, and we had a ton! I thought to myself, why haven't I met this guy before? I sent one of our mutual guy friends, Joe, a message telling him I thought his friend was cute and told him I wouldn't be upset if he let him know. "Planting the seed" as I called it. :) Joe mentioned it to Cameron, and Cameron wound up sending me a Facebook message saying "hello." We wound up meeting up downtown the night he sent me the message and had our first "date" at his parents house the next day shooting skeet off of their dock! We've been pretty much inseparable since that day.
I made 300 pink and gold ribbon drink stirrers for the specialty drinks, nautical rope, and candle centerpieces for half of the tables. My coordinator also tied nautical rope around the cocktail tables and pole covers. The heart with the hook through it on the bottom of the koozie had a very special meaning to it.
