Tamika & Juan’s Gorgeous Southern Wedding at The Legare Waring House, Charleston SC

Destination Weddings

July 15, 2013

What do you get when you combine a wedding photographer in Charleston with one of the best southern wedding venue, fantastic day-of coordination, some of the best food available with one of the top caterers in Charleston, the best decor company, the best wedding designer, a remarkable DJ? Now combine all this with the most perfect couple… You get a gorgeous southern wedding where everything is just perfect – A photographers dream!

Tamika Felder Campbell & Juan Campbell are just one of those couples who you meet for the first time, but know in your heart that you’ve been connected somehow, somewhere, since forever. Tamika’s tough journey through life, Juan’s love and support and the presence of their loving friends and family made this a truly emotional wedding – one that we’re especially proud and humbled to have shot.

Every single vendor who contributed to this beautiful day deserves a standing ovation… They didn’t miss a heartbeat with decor, food, music, makeup, hair – even with the thunderstorms that hit us soon after the ceremony!

The last minute tents, slippery dance floor and consistent rainfall didn’t cause a blink of an eye for Tamika and Juan, whose love and joy out shined the evening’s rain. The décor was breathtaking, crystal chandeliers hung from the oaks with mahogany farm tables positioned below. The antique glass and silver heirlooms, beautiful florals and ivory rose runners helped create the beautiful tablescapes that awaited the guests. The delicious Southern menu included shrimp and grits, fried chicken, drunken mac’n cheese and sweet potato biscuits, to name a few.

Lauren Miller was the day of coordinator and brains behind the decor, menu and execution.

We hope you enjoy this glimpse of their special day…
