Leave it to a couple from Texas to make a big splash of a wedding here in Charleston. Not only did Alicia and Walker pick an iconic mansion, the William Aiken House, for their reception, but they also picked the planners at Pure Luxe Bride, known for streamlined glam celebrations where nary a detail goes unattended, to take the helm. That combo, plus superb style statements like the ivory eyelet shifts bride Alicia gifted her maids for day-of prep wear (buh-bye kimonos!) and the fabulous monster bow on the back of her Marchesa gown, delivered a knockout set of nuptials that you’ve got to see for yourself. And for those who might be on the envious side? The couple is for-real real. Did they lose their wedding bands for hours on end the night before their vows? Yep. Did the groom accidentally drop the engagement ring box into the ocean right after proposing? You bet he did. (Luckily, Walker had already slipped its gem on her finger before he slipped up.) Was Alicia quaking at speaking “in public” during the ceremony? Uh-huhn. A silly eyebrow raise from Walker in the middle of things switched her into giggle mode, a state, she says, he induced often. So raise your coffee cups to this pair, wish them well, and join us in thanking them for sharing their special times with all of us!
