Anna and Jon have been together since high school. They planned their wedding as they were finishing college and chose to say “I do” in the very same church Anna attended as a little girl. After their first kiss as husband and wife, this adorable couple took advantage of the perfect spring weather and posed for portraits outside their reception venue, a 1900’s warehouse on the Waccamaw River in historic Conway, SC. The rustic industrial space first housed tobacco and later, peanuts, which is how it came to be known as the Peanut Warehouse. For Anna and Jon, it was the spot for the wedding of their dreams!
Anna was gorgeous in her sheath gown with its sheer lace neckline and chapel train. She finished her look with dangling rhinestone and pearl earrings and a fingertip veil. Her bridesmaids were pretty in pale pink and all of the ladies carried roses. Anna’s were white and pale blush while her gals’ bouquets featured darker shades of pink, wildflowers and baby’s breath. Jon and his groomsmen were handsome in three-piece navy blue suits. Jon paired his with a navy tie and his guys rocked pale pink to match the ladies.
At the reception, vintage details like chandeliers and repurposed windows added to the rustic vibe inside the Peanut Warehouse and modern touches like deep pink uplighting enhanced the space’s industrial-chic feel. Tables were set with white linens, navy blue napkins and delicate pink and white centerpieces. High-top tables draped in pink linens sat near the edge of the dance floor, creating a club-like atmosphere and once Anna and Jon got the party started with their first dance, guests were quick to join in. After the newlyweds cut their wedding cake, they celebrated with a traditional bouquet and garter toss and when it was time to say goodnight, guests saw the happy couple off, sparklers in hand. Congratulations Anna and Jon!
