Megan’s and Tomek’s fall wedding celebrated historic Downtown Charleston. The couple decided on a first look by the Pineapple Fountain at Waterfront Park followed by Rainbow Row portraits. Near the historic Charleston market, friends and family gathered at the Doubletree Hotel to witness the pair exchange vows. Another Charleston touch I liked was incorporating palm roses with place cards. Megan included some personal elements in memory of her mother. Her two garters were sewn from pieces of her mother’s wedding gown, she wores her mother’s pearls, and her bouquet included a heart locket with her mother’s photo.
The couple met Megan’s freshmen year of dental school during a welcoming party. They played against each other in a game of cornhole. The next day Megan walked into class to find Tomek the assigned T.A. and her tutor for the semester. Needless to say their relationship flourished from there. There is also another love in their life – their dog, Sarge. Though he was unable to attend the wedding, he was not forgotten. Guests’ favors were cookies shaped like dog bones and during their couple portraits, Megan and Tomek talked about Sarge’s morning drop-off to doggie daycare. This love and attentiveness is not for Sarge alone. It’s obvious watching Megan and Tomek with their friends and family the bonds they share with so many. Congratulations to Megan and Tomek!
