Today’s wedding is giving me summer fever. Seriously, I feel the need to go to the beach now for some sun and sand between my toes. Alas, it’s only February…sigh. Back to the post, Jamie and Chris got married on Folly Beach in Charleston, South Carolina. Blue skies, bright colors and an intimate celebration make up this gorgeous beach wedding by Chi Photography of Charleston. Jamie (the bride, who has AMAZING red hair!) shared some of her wedding memories and advice with us too – double score. Enjoy!

Unforgettable wedding moment:

All of the nervous energy that was built up just before walking down the aisle and then seeing Chris – it all just went away and we were in that moment, and I didn’t even realize anyone else was at the wedding, it seemed like it was just the two of us.

Most valuable piece of advice:

A friend told me a story about her wedding and she used lemons and obsessed over making sure all the lemons looked exactly the same and when she was doing it realized that it didn’t really matter and when she asked people after the wedding they didn’t even remember the lemons were there at all, so don’t worry about the little things.

Quirkiest detail:

Everyone kept asking us what to wear for the wedding and our only request was no ties or suit jackets!

Thriftiest trick:

We went to a farmers market the morning of the wedding and bought all the flowers for the bouquets for $25 and then made our own, I used my grandmothers broach to add a special touch to mine.

Thank you for sharing with us Jamie! Your wedding was beautiful. :)
