Kelsey and Tanner grew up as family friends after their moms met in a grocery store while they were both pregnant. The couple began dating during junior year of high school and while they attended University of South Carolina together. Tanner proposed in Kelsey's family's backyard while both of their families were gathered for a cookout. Their families watched the whole thing from the balcony! The Bride: Kelsey Nyman, 21, student at USC, store manager, professional dancer, dance teacher The Groom:Tanner Crum, 21, student at USC, industrial warehouse operator The Date:May 2012 The couple chose Kelsey's backyard for the venue because of the sentimental value, since Tanner would come to visit Tanner at Kelsey's house when they were young and because he proposed there. The couple chose a vintage, shabby chic theme with a khaki and coral color palette.

Coral Groomsmen's Shirts
Kelsey and her mother handmade the ceremony programs. They found layouts online and used colors and patterns from scrapbooking paper. Pieces of burlap in the shape of rounded waves were sewn to the top.
A long piece of driftwood ran down the middle of the table as a rustic runner and platform for the centerpieces, which were old mason jars and other recycled glass.The linens were floor length tan cloths with a burlap overlay.
Kelsey and Tanner's chocolate and carrot flavored wedding cake was decorated with fresh colored roses.
Two vintage old white doors were at the end of the aisle that framed where we got married. We also hung a large chandelier between the two doors. Two large pots of flowers on the ends of the doors became the entryway for the walkway that my groom, officiate, and best man entered from behind. There were orange, coral, pink, and white roses with hanging armarthus to give the area a vintage garden look.
