Going back to your roots, especially if you and your partner have moved away is always a sweet and sentimental event. So when Megan and Michael chose to do just that for their wedding day, the delightfully quaint and warm fuzzy feels just seem to pour out of their beautiful day.
To see every last sweet moment from this gold and white hometown wedding be sure to stop by the full gallery. It is chock full of adorable details all captured by Colbee Lynn Photography. Read on to see the complete budget breakdown for this hometown wedding.
The details of Megan and Michael's Wedding Day were timeless and classic! They got married in their hometown church (First Baptist of Clinton) and held their Wedding Reception at The Laurens County Museum; it was apparently their very first wedding held at the museum ever, so that was really exciting!
Megan got ready in her Grandmother's home, which is now owned by her best friend that was a bridesmaid as well. You could just tell how at home Megan really felt with all her girls in the house she essentially grew up in; super sentimental!
The Big Day
Their colors were gold and white so it accented the natural greenery outside for their portraits so well. They opted to do a first touch, and had a simple church ceremony immediately following; the pews were all full!
Both the Bride and Groom graduated from Clemson University so they had a TON of guests travel in from near and far. The reception was also packed to the brim and was nothing short of a good time! The food was absolutely amazing and the entertainment/DJ always kept the party going! Megan and Michael, were always on the dance floor keeping their guests entertained!
We ended the night with a sparkler exit, and they were driven away by her Father in their getaway car. They had to be at the airport super early the next day to catch their flight to Antigua so we ended the night around 10 PM!! Incredibly special day for everyone involved!!
