A Charleston Wedding ...

This adorable couple is my granddaughter Amelia and her husband (as of Oct. 30th) Eligio.              Although they currently live in Tampa, Fl., they chose to have their wedding in Charleston, SC.        Amelia had spent a college semester there a few years back as a transfer student from NC State and   they came to love the city.    Considering all the trauma that has visited that city in the last months it was a relief to have perfect weather for their outdoor, evening wedding.  Of course the bride was the main attraction !  (Doesn't she remind you of Cleopatra?)                                                                    
Amelia spent over a year preparing for her big day and it showed...from the lovely setting (a famous Charleston home well-known for it's elaborate and decorative weddings) to the simple but heart-felt    ceremony.  This was truly a magical combination of sophistication tempered with fun, from the           three tiered cake to the elaborate sit-down dinner to the waiters serving paper cones of sugar-spun       cotton candy as the evening ended.                                                                                                                                                                                                        .                                                                                                           
I forgot to mention the dancing and, maybe that was because I did my share and, after seeing some     of the impromptu photos of that, I think I have to own up to my age and forego that in the future !!    

All in all, a wonderful and not-to-be-forgotten event.    
 Here's to you Amelia and Eligio and all best wishes for the many years to come.

I don't know what Cleopatra looked like, but I am sure Amelia is more beautiful and she looks like a princess bride.

What a blessing to be able to dance at your granddaughter's wedding - no matter how well you think you did - or did not do! I know having you there meant the world to her... it is something she will remember forever, something that will bring her much joy. What I would have given had my grandmother been able to even just BE at my wedding let alone dance at it.
That was the best gift you could have given her!
What a lucky girl!
