    After a sweet Valentine's Day proposal, this couple said "I do" at an elegant Charleston wedding that featured a special ceremony called a handfasting. Since they met at a horse race, they asked their guests to wear hats and bow ties and accented their escort cards with horse shoes.

    They also served up some true southern hospitality: According to the bride, they served mint juleps during the cocktail hour, and their menu featured fried chicken, shrimp and grits, BBQ sliders, and sweet tea. We loved everything from their first look to their sweet sparkler send-off!
