Jennifer and Victor at Founders Hall at Legare Waring

After meeting Victor and Jennifer, I knew before they told me that they worked in “helping professions.” Jennifer Freeman is a registered nurse, and Victor Durrah is a district executive with the Boy Scouts of America.

Can’t you see the glow of their generosity and joyful spirits? The couple wed on the lawn in one of my favorite Charleston wedding venues, Founders Hall at Charles Towne Landing (also the home of the fabulous Legare Waring House

The bride arrived in style: drawn with her father in a Charleston horse and buggy.

She was serenaded during her procession down the aisle by Devone Gary, playing a clarinet solo. After an incredibly moving ceremony, brimming with family and friends, the two also left by carriage just before the skies opened up with rain. Talk about timing!

And, as always, one of my favorite wedding coordinators, the ladies of Distictive Events (Tiffany, ShaSha and Cory) had done a magnificent job making a beautiful location even more incredible. I love working with them because not only are their events some of the most beautiful I do, but also because they are such a dream to work with!

Guests were amazed at the confection crafted by Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal. Jim exquisitely recreated the flowers on Jennifer’s flowing bridal gown, down to the tiniest detail.

Tears flowed during the moving wedding toasts, testaments to the character, warmth and grace of Victor and Jennifer. After the moving toasts, Jennifer and Victor both read poems about friends and family and love. Then, Jennifer concluded by saying, “Thanks, Mom and Dad, for a wedding of my dreams! We are blessed beyond measure.”

When it was time to dance, the floor thrummed with a variety of tracks custom-mixed by Drew and Shani of Audio to Go from Charlotte.

As the evening drew to a close, the couple’s departure was illuminated by family and friends holding flickering golden votive candles.

After being whisked away in a white Rolls Royce, the couple honeymooned in Jamaica.

Thank you for letting me a small part of your big day!
