Crystal and Marcus

Crystal and Marcus have a rather fateful romance going for them. The two met at West Point, then, years later while stationed in separate cities in Afghanistan, struck up a romance that played out over “handwritten letters, spotty Internet connections, and often disconnecting phone lines,” says Marcus. (Between missions, he says he even folded paper origami roses so he could send her a bunch of flowers.) When the two were back stateside, with Crystal stationed in Hawaii and Marcus in Georgia, one visit found him on the mic in a jazz club pouring out his love for her along with a proposal. They danced to “At Last” and soon decided to wed in Crystal’s hometown of Charleston. “We plan to retire there after our Army careers,” explains Marcus. “Crystal speaks of Charleston with reverence, with stories past, and with pure happiness as much of her family still lives there. And after walking along the Charleston’s coast, hand-in-hand with my wife-to-be and almost hypnotized by the gentle lap of the water, I, too, fell in love with the city.” Add in the area’s rich military history, plus the Gullah traditions that they hope to share with his California family, and there couldn’t be a better spot for them to say “I do.”

Meghan and Ryley

After getting engaged in April, Charleston residents Meghan and Ryley had toured various venues here and both were struck by what she dubs the “wow factor” after visiting Seabrook Resort. But when she and her fiancé crunched the numbers, they just couldn’t make it work. Fate stepped in, though, when a bridesmaid shared a copy of Charleston Weddings and Meghan saw the giveaway. She crossed her fingers and jumped in to enter. Since both Meghan and Ryley work in the hospitality industry—he as a chef, and she in food and beverage marketing—she says they dream of a Big Day where they can experience some of Charleston’s renowned hospitality as guests themselves. “Whether it’s Christmas Day, Father’s Day, someone’s wedding day or just a regular Saturday you can bet that Ryley is at his restaurant making sure each and every one of his guests are satisfied while creating memorable experiences,” says Meghan. And as for Charleston itself? “Not only is it my dream wedding destination, it is my dream living destination,” says Meghan. “I moved down here from New England in 2009 and fall more in love with this city every single day.”
