Janet + Richard | Mira Zwillinger Real Wedding From Chris Isham Photography

This South Carolina wedding is filled with goodness.  Like the storybook mountain side chapel for the ceremony and the naturally beautiful reception venue.  We love the simple but stylish vibe found everywhere from the flowers to the tables and the cake. And we bet you’ll smile when you read how Janet knew her dress was the one.

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was held at The Cliffs at Glassy Mountain Chapel –  a surreal space. It’s a quaint chapel perched right on the side of a mountain. The fall foliage and views for miles were absolutely breathtaking and exactly what we were looking for.

The Reception
Our reception was held at The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards  tucked in the foothills of South Carolina. Our reception itself was at their Lakehouse venue, which has lovely views of the lake and mountains. While it was an indoor/outdoor venue, we geared the reception outdoors but had everything tented because in South Carolina it is generally best to prepare for rain during the fall. The feel of the décor was rustic mixed with a very organic feel. It was very important to us that everything feel relaxed and natural while also feeling chic. We feel we achieved this with this location and venue.

Janet’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on about five dresses originally and narrowed it down fairly quickly to three. The Charlie dress stood out to me among all of them but I needed my mother and sister their to give me their opinions (I went dress shopping alone originally). They came to town the next day and we went back to the bridal salon. I saved Charlie for last because deep down I knew that it was the one. When I walked out in the dress my mother began crying immediately and that pretty much sealed the deal for me.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Gown
This dress is a custom, hand-made wedding dress. The detail is absolutely astonishing and I don’t feel right having it hang in a closet for years and years to come. Someone else deserves to feel as amazing as I did on my wedding day. It truly is one of a kind and for the bride looking for subtle detail and something different.
