Real Wedding: Shelley & Greg




Shelley & Greg
July 3, 2011
Creek Club at I'on

Y'all have already gotten a sneak peak of this event with the Edwin McCain video from last month, but now we're pleased to bring you the details of Shelley & Greg's July wedding courtesy of Virgil Bunao of CVI photography. As always, the Creek Club at I'on served as a perfect back drop on this sunny July day. As we all know, Charleston can have some warm weather, but this day was just right. Before the ceremony, guests were able to grab a refreshing lemonade in the garden and fan themselves to make sure they were comfortable. The ceremony took place on the lawn and ended with a surprise. As the bride and groom were announced, gospel singers sang out "Oh Happy Day" from the porches of the Creek Club, and sang some other gospel favorites as the guests mingled for the cocktail hour.

Probably the biggest surprise of the night though was, of course, Edwin McCain. We had received a call a week earlier from Edwin's manager saying that there was a great possibility that he could make it. Of course, we kept this a HUGE secret! We knew he had arrived to the venue when we heard our bride scream from the garden because she caught a glimpse of him walking by. She cried with joy which made us all tear up. What a special surprise. He then sang the songs for her first dance and father/daughter dance. It was a truly special moment that we will always remember.

The great music continued all night with the band Loose Chain. These guys really kept the party rocking and the guests dancing. In all, this event was packed full of fun little details from the cute koozies to the special first dance to the yacht departure. Check out the images below.
