When Nickie, a native of Burke, Virginia, and Greenville, South Carolina-born Josh met through shared pals at a Widespread Panic concert in Atlanta, a friendship was born. Five years later, that friendship turned into courtship, and, after two years of dating, Josh proposed on Halloween during a trip to a friend’s mountain house. The local couple swapped vows on their property on Wadmalaw Island before dining and dancing the night away with family, friends, and their pup, King. “It was a big, ragin’ party with 400 of our closest people, just like we wanted,” says Nickie, who—as a local photographer—enlisted talented vendor-pals to make their wedding dreams come true. Afterward, they celebrated with a trip to Colorado.
