Tucked in the heart of downtown Anderson, South Carolina, the Bleckley Inn is a beautiful little boutique hotel that quickly became the ideal location for a late May wedding. There were so many things to be celebrated on that holiday weekend; Memorial Day, the rain (finally!) and having impeccable weather just long enough for these Phillips Family and Howard Family come together as one.
From the moment she made her way down the aisle to her groom, we instantly had butterflies in our stomachs. It was like Christmas morning all over again. Something that was once part of daily lives that we had taken so for granted had become a true treasure to witness. Carole Cochran and Christopher weathered such a crazy and uncertain time like champs, and definitely inspired us to do the same. It was our first Saturday back in the game in over 8 weeks, and boy did it feel GREAT to be behind the turn table again! From the ceremony to the sendoff, we were in full wedding swing and loving every second of it.
Before we knew it, the vows had been exchanged and we were introducing them as Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Howard to their family and friends that had come from near and far. Fresh florals and peaches filled the reception hall and gave it that perfect “Southern Wedding” feel. As their guests made their way outside to the tented courtyard the party began. Midway through the reception, Christopher and his Groomsmen had a wardrobe change into American flag tuxedo shirts. As Christopher spun has beautiful new bride around on the dance floor, we all knew what everyone was thinking, “‘Merica!”, and what could be more Southern than that?! Carole Cochran and Christopher continue to dance the night away as they were surrounded by their loved ones.
