If you are feeling cold today and a bit fed up of the miserable winter...
As we reach the latter part of the week and we can see the weekend just around the corner, I am taking you off to South Carolina for today’s gorgeous wedding. Amy and Nick were married in Charleston on 21st October 2017 in a place called Foster’s Pointe. It is clear from the grooms write up that this place holds a lot of emotional connection for them both, so it seemed the only choice for their wedding celebration. They filled their wedding day with a laid-back vibe, along with an eclectic mix of decoration, amazing flowers and delicious cakes. Amy and Nick’s love is strong and this is evident in the gorgeous and touching photos taken by Josh Rigsby Photography, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
We were sprouted in the grey-black pluff mud of the Lowcountry, my siblings and cousins and I, and we spent our summers swimming in the warm brackish water of the River that flowed past our dock at Foster’s Pointe. There is a test for newcomers to Foster’s Pointe, whether friend or lover. The test was handed down from the Aunts, whom we love and fear and whose word is final, Amen. The test is very simple: they must love Foster’s Pointe at first sight, or they are not worth keeping.
I didn’t have any worries about Amy passing the test. Amy is sensible. Amy knows a good thing when she sees it. And so when she first breathed in the salty-sulphur air of the marsh at low tide, she fell hopelessly in love. In the following years, we’d escape out into our wilderness whenever we could, and we grew together in the Lowcountry. When she asked me to marry her (Amy also knows when she has to take the initiative), there was only one place that either of us could see gathering our loved ones together to celebrate. There was no question. With family and friends surrounding us under the live oaks, we were home.
