Imagine being abroad in beautiful Barcelona, Spain. Two travelers cross paths in a hotel business center and instantly have a connection. He returns home to NYC. She detours to visit him on her way back to Charlotte and a love story begins. Months later she packs up, bids the South farewell for the Big Apple, and the two have been inseparable ever since. No, that is not the summary of an award winning romantic comedy. It’s Erika and Jack’s amazing love story.
Their whirlwind romance continued with a stunning winter wedding at The William Aiken House. The couple were inspired by their love of travel and incorporated elements of globe trotting throughout the decor. These unique features included vintage luggage tags as escort cards, a guest book globe, and having a destination wedding in Charleston. Along with reflecting the couple’s sense of adventure, Erika wanted a soft, romantic atmosphere. Blush, champagne and ivory offered an enchanting color palette from the drapery to the all rose bouquets. This whimsical wanderlust soiree came together from the amazing team of Southern Chic Weddings and lovely floral design by Wildflowers, INC.
After a courtyard ceremony in the heart of Downtown Charleston, guests dined on cuisine creations from William Aiken House’s in-house caterer, FISH. The evening continued with dancing, photo booth shenanigans, and a cigar bar. Before bidding guests farewell, Erika and Jack made sure everyone had a tasty late night snack provided by Roti Rolls food truck. The newlyweds were sent on their way with a sparkler exit and a vintage Bentley. Congratulations Erika and Jack!
