TOWN Weddings



{ Mary Grace Wallace & Daniel Livingston Moyd IV // September 4, 2016 }

What happens when a fly-fishing trip doesn’t go as planned? An engagement, of course! With their shared love for adventures, Grace Wallace and Livingston Moyd were obviously meant to be. After five years of dating, Livingston chose to use one particular adventure as an opportunity to ask Grace to be his wife. While the two intended to enjoy a day of fly-fishing, Grace, unfortunately, left her gear, and opted for a day in town instead. With Grace gone, Livingston had the lucky opportunity to scout out potential proposal locations. Later that afternoon, against the backdrop of Eastatoe waterfall, Livingston asked Grace to be his wife, and her response was a tearful “yes!” The wedding was held at Charlotte City Club, where afterward the couple was whisked away in a white pedicab to tour Uptown Charlotte. The couple now resides in Charlotte, where Grace is CEO of stationary company WritefullyHis, and Livingston is a manager with Elliot Davis.   JENNA MOORE // JENNA MARIE WEDDINGS


{ Chelsea McKenzie Jarratt & Charles Sterling Street // July 2, 2016 }

Some might say that Chelsea Jarratt and Sterling Street’s love story seems straight out of a Broadway musical. With a shared love for theatre, Chelsea and Sterling met at a callback for Greenville Little Theatre’s production of All Shook Up. After dating for six months, Sterling surprised Chelsea with a trip to New York City for NewYear’s. When they arrived, Chelsea thought nothing of a simple stroll through Central Park. But Sterling’s intentions were of a more serious nature. With the misty city skyline as their backdrop, Sterling’s knee hit the stones on the iconic Gapstow Bridge with a sweet proposal of marriage. Shocked and overjoyed, Chelsea said yes. But the surprises weren’t over for the bride-to-be, and after a romantic carriage ride through the park, she entered a restaurant to discover both their families waiting to celebrate. The couple had a unique British Tea reception at the stunning Gassaway Mansion, where their friends serenaded guests. Chelsea and Sterling reside in Greenville where they both work at the Greenville Little Theatre. ALLISON DYKSTRA // ALLISON ELIZABETH PHOTOGRAPHY


{ Kimberly Ann Kelley & Trevor Monroe Higgins // October 29, 2016 }

The odds are typically stacked against you when co-workers attempt toplay matchmaker; however, for Trevor Higgins and Kimberly Kelley favor smiled down on them when they met while working at the Hyatt Regency. What started out as hikes up Paris Mountain and margaritas at Papa’s and Beer became a lifelong relationship. After three years of dating, Trevor knew he wanted to commit his life to Kimberly, and spent months planning the picture-perfect proposal. On a trip to Tennessee in their cabin—appropriately titled “Always and Forever”—Trevor enlisted the help of their dog Rufusby equipping him with a sign reading: “Please say yes Mommy.” On their third anniversary in front of a cozy fire, Kelly agreed to marry Trevor. The wedding ceremony was held at Twigs Tempietto in Greenville, where the couple continues to live. Kelly still works for Hyatt Regency and Trevor is the executive chef at Roost. DAVID AND KRISTINA JUNKER // DAVID AND KRISTINA PHOTOGRAPHY


{ Shannon Townes & Philip Hamilton // June 17, 2016 }

Quoting Shakespeare might not be today’s average pick-up line, but English teacher Shannon Townes could think of no higher expression of love than having “Sonnet 116” read at her wedding. Shannon met Philip Hamilton at a University of South Carolina tailgate, and after dating for two years, their love deepened into an “ever- xed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.” After a celebration dinner for Shannon’s birthday at The Oak Table in Columbia, the couple went for a romantic stroll around the SC State House grounds, where Philip eventually got down on one knee and proposed. At their wedding ceremony and reception—held at Chateau Elan in Braselton, Georgia—guests danced the night away, as Shannon’s father, a former drummer, joined the band to rock out to a few ’80s hits. The couple now resides in downtown Columbia where Shannon is an English teacher and Philip is a manager at KPMG. CRAIG & LINDSEY MAHAFFEY // SPOSA BELLA PHOTOGRAPHY
