Sioux Falls meets Southern Charm: Meg & Dean's Wedding...

Introducing Midwestern fun meets Southern Charm. Meg and Dean currently reside in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. (I have actually been there and secretly love the midwest) But because they have family all over the USA, they decided to have a destination wedding just outside of Charleston SC at the Old Wide Awake Plantation. Their wedding was so creative and different. I loved all the hand-made touches. There's so much to show you. This wedding had everything: a candy table, pinwheels, rootbeer, moonpies and a cloth photo-booth. (that I rigged right before the wedding). Meg did most everything herself, inspired by Martha. I'll tell you more as we go.

First, at a Southern plantation wedding in July, you must have a way to stay cool, so Meg made these hand-fans for the ceremony out of different printed paper. I love this paper!

Using that cool paper again, Meg made these pinwheels to sit on the reception tables in sand-buckets with little tea-lights. (and she let me take them home after... which was a nice treat since I love crafty little things)


This might have been my favorite part! Meg & Dean wanted to give the guests a little "taste" of "home" as a wedding favor, so they sent their party off with Sioux Falls Cowboy Sarsaparilla and Moon-pies!!! How cute is that. (I also LOVE root beer so this just made my heart swell, and it was so hot made my ankles swell too ;)

Meg's dress was a vintage-style polka dot get-up. I love that she went old fashion with her look on this day.

Can you tell how excited I am? I have so many comments, but I love this hair!

Aren't pinwheels so nostalgic!

Converse for the Gentlemen.

Red shoes. love that.

Cute little grands!

Who doesn't love a cupcake?

Meg & Dean, what a fun wedding! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
