Sunset Hues

Sunset Hues | Ashley Meek & Chris Dorsey July 24, 2010, St. John the Baptist & Lowndes Grove Plantation

Three years after meeting over a game of horseshoes, Mount Pleasant residents Ashley Meek and Chris Dorsey made plans to say, “I do.” Aiming for a classic affair that was traditional, Southern, and “charismatic,” says Ashley, the pair called upon Kristin Newman Designs to bring an elegant and brightly colored vision to life. Following a ceremony at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, guests enjoyed a reception at Lowndes Grove surrounded by pink and orange that intentionally matched the tones of the couple’s eventual sunset send off. Add a summertime menu with a Lowcountry emphasis and family recipes, and Ashley says, “It was everything I dreamed of and more!”
