Real Weddings: Katie + James

She’s a University of South Carolina girl, he’s a Citadel boy, and they both love southern history. This shared interest was a huge inspiration to Katie and James as they planned their Charleston wedding, choosing The Citadel Summerall Chapel for their ceremony then moving afterwards to the third most historic building in the country, The Old Exchange, for their reception. The celebration was impeccably designed by Sara Hosch of Southern Protocol, classically elegant, soft, and romantic, with absolutely gorgeous florals by Branch Design Studio. The images by Paige Winn Photography capture Katie and James’ day beautifully!
