Real Wedding : an elegant destination wedding in Charleston, SC

Today's couple, Lisa and Ryan, decided to have a destination wedding in Charleston but they didn't want to forget about their traditions from up North. So, during their reception, the bride and her Ohio State alums danced to "Hang on Sloopy", the official theme song of the Ohio Buckeyes. And, to pay homage to her home state, Lisa baked "buckeyes" for each guest. These sugary treats are named after the official nut of Ohio and consist of peanut butter balls rolled in chocolate. The beautiful photography is by Richard Ellis Photography.

The Bride wore a blusher veil and a dress from Jasmine while her bridesmaids were dressed in black and carried white anemones.

Lisa and Ryan handmade many elements of their elegant winter affair including the cupcake stand and the table setting signs {shown earlier in the post}. Each sign named a location with a description of important places to the couple.
