Erin and Todd were married this past Saturday at Alhambra Hall in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant. The couple live in the Old Village so the location was not only convenient but special as they will be able to walk past the building everyday and remember their wedding. The day started with hair and make-up for Erin and her Bridesmaids at Erin and Todd's home. The wonderful Pamela Lesch was on hand to perform her make-up magic while the Bride's friend whipped the girls' hair into perfect coifs. Erin's mother had trouble holding back tears as she watched her daughter transform into a Bride. After getting ready Erin and Todd were brought to a secluded location for their "first look." After planning the entire wedding and hand-crafting many of the tiny details themselves the "first look" provided a pause and a moment of contemplation during the rush of the day.
Erin and Todd are a very do-it-yourself couple and together crafted a beautiful wedding. Shades of yellow and blue as well as peacock feathers were used throughout. Erin handmade the flowers for her hair as well as the groomsmen's boutonnieres. The couple made mix CD's of their favorite songs for their guests as well as koozies. The koozies were amazingly creative and show just how savvy this Bride truly is. Each had a picture of E.T. flying over South Carolina. E.T. at a wedding? Well E.T. just happens to also be the initials for Erin and Todd!
The couple planned a fabulous reception as they had the two most important ingredients: great food and an amazing band. Regal Catering provided overflowing buffets of food, including a chocolate fountain while Erin's friend baked delicious cupcakes. To top it all off the couple had local Charleston favorite Sol Driven Train. The band was phenomenal playing their own songs and covers late into the night.
