Erika + Jack: The William Aiken House

Erika + Jack: The William Aiken House

Globetrotters Erika and Jack exchanged first glances in Barcelona, scheduled a first date in New York City, and snapped engagement photographs in Paris, but out of all the possible locales, the duo chose Charleston as their wedding destination. When a young Erika found herself peeking into the wrought-iron gates of The William Aiken House during a family vacation, she witnessed a beautiful wedding taking place and her Charleston wedding dreams began. The New York residents paired up with Priscilla Thomas Photography to flawlessly capture their day of romance meets charm (a perfect fit for the Holy City itself). In the midst of soft, blush and ivory tones, luggage tags were used as escort cards while tables were marked with names of cities the voyagers traveled to together. Guests were delighted with dinner catered by Fish before grooving to the tunes of Bunn DJ Company. The magical evening came to a close as the happy couple ran through an illuminated sparkler tunnel… only after snagging a late night bite at the Roti Rolls food truck. Adios! Au Revoir! So long, Mr. and Mrs. Snyder!

Make your dream a reality and book your wedding at The William Aiken House!
