Grass Roots

Grass Roots | <p> Jessica Alig &amp; Tim McIntosh, May 28, 2011, French Protestant (Huguenot) Church &amp; The Confederate Home</p>

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.”
