Remember the romantic Tuscany elopement we shared last week? Kaleigh and Brad channeled those same European countryside vibes stateside with their elegant coastal wedding and al fresco reception by Gathering Events. Charleston wedding venue Kiawah River proved to be the loveliest spot for an Italian soiree last spring. Find more photos by Julia Wade below!
Love the pops of color in the calligraphy here!
Kaleigh wore a lace column Oscar de la Renta gown that she fell in love with and spent months hunting down only to find out it was from several years ago and discontinued. She reached out to the Oscar de la Renta team and after a lot of searching, they happened to find a gown made in her exact size that was made for a previous bride who changed their mind. AMAZING!
Ah, spring bridesmaids, adorable flower girls, and lots of romantic touches… this HAS to be a Tuscany wedding!
Not wanting to hide the beautiful oak trees and open-air feeling of the waterside property, the couple opted to forgo a tent and pray for good weather, and thankfully it cooperated! The oak canopy was dotted with lanterns and string lights for a romantic feel. Fruits were incorporated into the centerpieces as a nod to Kaleigh’s father, who works in the produce industry. The resulting look was the sophisticated romantic fete of their dreams!
Talk about a dream! Cheers to the happy couple!
