A True Charleston Beauty

Ashlee just couldn’t decide on one Modern Trousseau dress — so she wore two! Our Charleston bride wore a custom ‘Daphne’ short wedding dress style created in the ‘Hope’ cotton lace for her engagement photos, and the elegant ‘Finnley’ in ivory lace over blush silk for her walk down the aisle. We simply adore both looks, and couldn’t wait to share her elegant bridal portraits by Evan Laettner Photography.

We took a moment to speak with our southern bride about her wedding details — featuring great locations in and around Charleston — and this is what she had to share:

Wedding Date: 12/28/13

Ceremony Location: Mt Pleasant Presbyterian Church

Reception Location: Carolina Yacht Club

MT: How did you two meet?
Ashlee: At Poes Tavern on Sullivans Island Memorial Day weekend

MT: Why did you choose Modern Trousseau?
Ashlee: I wanted the ability to customize my wedding dress, and fell in love with the design and quality of Modern Trousseau’s lace and silk, as well as their top-notch construction.

MT: How did your husband propose?
Ashlee: He popped the question at Moise Island during Memorial Day weekend. It was exactly one year after we met, and he waited until the sun was going down, and a full moon was rising.

MT: What was your first dance song?
Ashlee: You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne.

MT: How did you feel in your finished gown?
Ashlee: Like a model and a princess rolled into one!

MT: What were your bridal colors?
Ashlee: Antique Rose and Ivory.

MT: Did you change into a different dress for the reception?
Ashlee: No. I didn’t want to take my fabulous dress off! My feather stole and lace-edged veil were all I needed to change-up my wedding day look for the aisle and after party.

MT: What was the most memorable moment of your wedding?
Ashlee: Walking down the aisle with my Dad, wearing my amazing veil (by Modern Trousseau), and seeing my future husband at the altar waiting for me.
