Alex and Ryan’s wedding was our very first time to visit the Citadel and we were not disappointed! The chapel there was designed in 14th century Gothic style and is truly magnificent, adorned with high ceilings, beautiful stained glass windows, and lots of candles. It was one of the most beautiful churches we have ever been in. The Citadel traditions were also a lot of fun; Ryan’s uncle, who also attended there, brought his own saber to use for the saber arch. Ryan and Alex’s expressions were priceless when she got the swat!
The reception was held at the Citadel alumni center and had a super live band called The Coppertones. Peggy, the very talented mother of the bride, arranged all of the gorgeous centerpieces and bouquets; I imagine that she will be dreaming about calla lilies and hydrangeas for the next few weeks.
We always love a Charleston wedding ceremony! Thank you so much to the Hamilton and Dorr families for making us feel so welcome and allowing us to share such a important day with you guys!
We also enjoyed the chance to attend the rehearsal dinner the night before. It was held at the Charleston Yacht Club.
Thanks for stopping by,
