Though Jessica Alig and Tim McIntosh had lived in the Lowcountry for the same four-year span, it wasn’t until they moved to New York City and met on a blind date that their romance began. Just shy of two years later, Tim proposed on Valentine’s Day 2011. The couple chose Charleston—a place the bride says “feels like home”—for their nuptials and, due to packed schedules, set a date less than four months away. Jessica came up with the vision (a clean, classic midday affair) and the palette (crisp, grassy green, white, and pale neutrals), and Kristin Newman Designs took things from there. The end product? A Memorial Day Weekend wedding Jessica describes as “serene, sweet, tasteful, and timeless.”
Charleston is one of the country’s top-tier cities for so-called destination weddings, and any couple getting married here should expect far-flung guests to RSVP an enthusiastic “Yes” to their celebration, especially when this old-school boarding pass, designed by Studio R, debuts your wedding details in high flying style.
