Elegant + Laid-Back William Aiken House Wedding


It is an absolute thrill to be here again, re-launching VGS with a fresh new take on sharing meaningful wedding inspiration! It seems only fitting to share a wedding that is overflowing with thoughtful details and a beautiful effortless ambience that allows the bride + groom’s love to serve as the focal point of the day- the beating heart and “why” behind VGS. Georgia-Leigh and Brian’s downtown Charleston wedding will leave your heart fluttering with joy. Each moment of their day was planned with their guest’s comfort in mind, and every detail of their elegant affair uniquely told their beautiful love story. 

From the moment they began planning their wedding, the Washington DC residents knew they wanted their guests to come first. Georgia-Leigh and Brian, together with Wedding Planner, Ashley of Boutique Planning, worked magic in transforming the William Aiken House into a laid-back and inviting setting, where guests were lovingly overwhelmed with genuine Southern hospitality. The newlyweds danced the evening away to the sounds of a live band, while treating their family and friends to many traditional Southern treats.

Every detail of Georgia-Leigh and Brian’s wedding is beautiful, but perhaps the feature that stands out the most is the joy and love that radiates between them. Their wedding day is beautiful, but their love is breathtaking, and that my Friend is the quintessential meaning of cultivating a “Fine Marriage”.
