The Weekend: Baby Shower + Wedding.

This past weekend held two very exciting events, both on Saturday.
 
The day started out with a baby shower for Ashley (Cameron's cousin's wife) and her baby boy, Bowman! The hosts did a great job with all of the details of the shower and the mommy-to-be looked great!

Bought this onesie from Baby Tweets.

 
I scooted out of the shower a little early to head to the next event - Leah & Adam's wedding! The ceremony was held all the way at the end of Folly, where the lighthouse is located. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but neither Cameron nor I, as Charleston natives, have never been to this spot before.
 
It was such an intimate and special ceremony. Everyone gathered around the bride and groom in a circle. No chairs, no microphones, just them, their closest friends and family, surrounded by love and happiness.

Sweet moment during a prayer by her dad. 
 
Funny story about the guy below - he was painting near the ceremony and I mentioned to Cameron that this is a new "thing" at weddings. Artists will come and paint a picture of the ceremony or reception. Well, we were talking to Leah's dad at the reception, the guy came up in our conversation, and her dad said that they didn't hire him - he just happened to be there and painted the ceremony!

The reception was held at Crosby's Dock on Folly and we were welcomed by an awesome sunset.

Me and the beautiful bride!
