A Preppy, Lilly Pulitzer-Inspired Wedding at Thomas Bennett House in Charleston, South Carolina

When Katie Driscoll (27 and a business owner) and David Morris (33 and a business owner) tell people they met on a blind date, there's always a moment of surprise when they explain that they weren't technically on the date together. In fact, Katie’s coworker was on a blind date with David when she immediately knew that he'd be a perfect match for her friend Katie. Since the two shared their first actual date in Charleston, South Carolina, the historic gardens at Thomas Bennett House served as the perfect spot to tie the knot. Katie, a former employee of Lilly Pulitzer, wasn't shy about incorporating bright, bold pops of aqua, pink, and orange throughout their design. A true lover of everything girly and glamorous, Katie added monograms on nearly everything— from the the sash on her gown to a blue monogrammed bouquet wrap. Golden pineapples served as a subtle motif throughout the day as well, popping up on details that included cushy throw pillows and punchy bow ties. The bride's grandmother hand-painted the watercolor signage for a sentimental touch, while Katie's uncle built a custom wood bench that later served as the couple's guest book. As the night of dinner and dancing, guests were treated to late-night Southern fare in the form of a shrimp-and-grits bar and chicken and waffles. "We aren't super-fancy, but we both know how to have a good time," Katie says.—Juliette Cheatham
