Larkins Sawmill SC Wedding
Larkins Sawmill SC Wedding.
Not even a hurricane could keep these two from getting married! Originally, their ceremony was supposed to be in Myrtle Beach, but when Florence interrupted those plans, friends and family rallied around them and made sure they could still have the day of their dreams.
As hurricane Florence turned into a category 4 hurricane three days before their wedding, they were forced to relocate it with mandatory evacuations. They moved the wedding to Greenville South Carolina and focused on having a beautiful ceremony.
Wade (a fan of Nicolas Sparks & the Notebook) surprised his bride with a black journal of love notes he wrote her during their time dating and engaged. Chrissy gave wade a special compass since they are avid travelers and hikers.
The couple met while traveling the world together on a year trip abroad with a nonprofit organization. Although they continued to stay in touch sparks didn't fly until 5 years later as they reconnected on a 4th of July party.
Q: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you'd like to share with other couples planning their day? A: I don't remember who coined it, but the mantra for the weekend became "Go with the Flo"- both a nod towards Hurricane Florence and a reminder to take things as they come. On our wedding day, and into our marriage, we've decided we want to be people who focus on what's important, who let the small things go, and who laugh deeply along the way. Oh, and maybe don't plan an outdoor wedding on the coast during hurricane season.
