Cindy and Tony definitely have found themselves a special place in our hearts through the short amount of time that we have known them. Cindy is a planner at heart so we knew everything on their day at Brookgreen Gardens would be just right (which it was!) and Tony is an illustrator/animator, which fits in with our art degree backgrounds just perfectly. Plus, they have dogs and cats, and that’s an automatic win in our book! Make sure you look closely at the wedding program – it’s an illustration Tony did of them with all of their pets. It’s quite perfect!
Their wedding was incredibly intimate, with only their closest friends and family present at a late morning ceremony in the garden with a lunch reception following. We were all constantly checking the weather for the week before the wedding (as we do pretty religiously for all of our weddings), knowing that it was an outdoor ceremony. We ran into Cindy and Tony at a small beach bar in Murrells Inlet the night before the wedding and confirmed that there was no rain in the forecast and we all went home confident that it was going to be a rainless day on Friday. When we woke up Friday morning it was pouring down rain (thanks to ALL of the meteorologists on that one… you guys nailed it!). So, luckily, Cindy and Tony were able to secure a tent and by the time the ceremony rolled around, everyone was dry underneath a tent! Whew!
We did manage to grab some non-rainy portraits in between showers and the day ended up being just perfect. The Holliday Cottage where the reception was held was the perfect setting for a sit down lunch with family and friends, some all the way from California! Once lunch was finished, they cut their cake and served cake and cupcakes on Cindy’s mother and grandmothers antique china. Afterwards everyone ventured out to explore the gardens.
It was such a perfect day and we are so honored to have been a part of it! Congratulations Cindy and Tony – we wish you many many many years of happiness together!
