An Ivory-Colored Outdoor Wedding in Charleston, South Carolina
Natasha and Jay
Jay Steinle knew exactly how he wanted to ask Natasha Beadleston, his girlfriend of three years, to marry him, but his plans seemed sabotaged from the start. The couple was visiting Natasha's family at her father's summer home in Maine, and Jay had intended to propose on a boat ride to a neighboring island. Not only did Natasha's sister, brother-in-law, and nephews ask to come along, but fog rolled in over the water. Determined, Jay asked Natasha to hike to nearby Parkman Mountain with him a few days later and proposed after a picnic lunch overlooking the harbor. "It was the best moment of my life," says Natasha.
Bridesmaids hold smaller versions of the bride's bouquet of gardenias, hydrangeas, and stephanotis.
Flower girls wear orchid wreaths.

Programs, bound with sea grass, display the palmetto tree and moon of South Carolina's state flag; the icons also adorn the invitations, napkins and place cards.
