Swept Away in South Carolina

From the company of close knit family + friends to the wedding details and scenery, Marie + Brent’s wedding would best be described as a union of elegance and fun. They tied the knot in Travelers Rest, SC on April 12, 2019. Their day was surely something to remember!

I could go on and on about Brent and Marie’s venue, The Southwind Ranch in Travelers Rest, SC. This beautiful lakeside venue has views of the mountains, and was simply charming. It offered a beautiful spot for both the wedding party and guests to enjoy their time. The exterior of the bridal/honeymoon suite has a Pacific Northwest vibe. The bridal room and honeymoon suite is every wedding photographer’s dream, and the gorgeous scenery and landscape is beautiful year-round. It’s not too modern or too rustic, so it’s the perfect well-rounded wedding venue in my opinion.

Now to the reception. Their tasteful selections for both their color palette and catering were phenomenal. Brent + Marie used Liquid Catering for their alcohol and Liquid Catering put together a signature drink for their wedding called a Watermelon Mint Smash Cocktail (and mocktails for the kids!) that was out of this world! I could have one of those on repeat this summer!

Good Life Catering handled their wedding food and every dish was so well-thought and tasty! The serving stations even had “A Night in Charleston” and they were so spot on with their shrimp and grits, and cajun vibes!

Brent and Marie have three kids of their own so as you can imagine, there were a lot of kids dancing at their love fest. That being said, mocktails were all around but there were also these adorable, beautifully crafted unicorn-themed cupcakes! I can’t say I have ever seen that at a wedding until now but it’s super fun!

Some other fun notes: Marie and her kids, Evan and Bella, coordinated a flash mob dance for weeks with several guests leading up to the wedding as a surprise to Brent, and then Brent joined in haha.
