William Aiken House looked even more beautiful than we could've imagined on this stunning Saturday last April for Ivonne + Randy's English, Gothic inspired wedding!
Ivonne and Randy gradually arrived with their bridal party, dressed and ready for the day ahead, as family members slowly flooded in for photos. Before the family photos began, Ivonne + Randy enjoyed one of the most romantic first looks we've ever seen. Photographer Reese Moore did a beautiful job at capturing the couple in those intimate first moments of seeing one another. Ivonne couldn't stop smiling! Randy fell in love all over again when he saw her in her stunning Modern Trousseau gown.
Following some exceptional photos of the classic black + white bridal party, it was time for the ceremony! Instead of "Cannon" by Zox playing as the bridal party made their way down the aisle, Ivonne surprised her future husband with a bagpiper to play the rest of the processional. Randy, beaming from the moment the bagpiper began to the very end of the ceremony, loved his surprise! The ceremony took place on the carriage lot of The William Aiken House, where Ivonne + Randy's closest family and friends witnessed them exchange vows and agree to spend the rest of their lives loving one another.
Cocktail hour began as guests made their way to the second floor of the William Aiken House for a raw bar, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. As the hour came to a close, all of the guests were invited to make their way to the upstairs porch to watch the couple's first dance. You cannot beat the gorgeous sunlight from their first dance, it truly was picture perfect!
Guests followed Ivonne + Randy into their beautifully, decorated tent complete with birdcage chandeliers and gorgeous greenery! Guests were greeted at their tables with personalized calligraphy menus.
After dinner, Ivonne + Randy cut their cake and danced the night away! The couple invited all of their guests to join them for an after party at Fish just a couple doors down into the wee hours of the night.
