At Home Down South

At Home Down South | Romance rules at this sophisticated, shabby chic soirée

Johnny Harbin & Lauren Jones
September 7, 2012
The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation

After dating throughout middle and high school, Myrtle Beach natives Lauren Jones and Johnny Harbin’s paths split. But three years later, when Johnny moved to California where Lauren was living, they picked their romance back up and in due time, Johnny proposed. They chose Charleston for the wedding location—it made sense for their East Coast families—and went about organizing a day rife with Southern charm and a country barn aesthetic that, when paired with elements rented from Ooh! Events, ended up having a French flair. Lauren tackled some DIY aspects (like the wedding party bouquets), while Ooh! streamlined the overall shabby chic look. When the day arrived, all was in place, rain clouds unfortunately included. After a torrential downpour, though, the skies cleared,  and the two exchanged vows in “the prettiest light I had ever seen,” says Lauren.
