If you've been keeping up with us, we've been sharing DREAM weddings for the last few weeks. We think that you just might love what Carina McLaughlin of Tealight Weddings and Events is serving up in her dream wedding! You also might want Carina to help plan your Southern California dream wedding, but first let's hear about hers.

Dream Venue 

Old Sheldon Church Ruins Photo by:

Carina has chosen the Old Sheldon Church Ruins as her dream wedding venue and we can see why. Located in Yemassee, South Carolina and once known as the Prince William Parish Church, it has had quite an eventful history. Be sure to see more here about its history. The ruins are located on private property and owned and managed by St. Helena's Church in Beaufort, South Carolina so be sure not to trespass! 

Dream Dress

Lazaro Wedding Gown Gown by:

Carina has gone back to 2010 to get her dream dress. It's style 3059 from Lazaro and described as an Ivory embroidered net art deco bridal dress, curved neckline, crystal motif at empire bodice, silk organza ruffle tiered A-Line skirt, sweep train. Yes, please. Hop over to check it out and even see it on real brides. 

Dream Photographer

Brandon Kidd is a photography team consisting of Brandon and Kristin. They are based in Southern California, but don't fret becuase I am sure they will be happy to travel for your wedding! Take a moment to head over and meet the Kidds! You're definitely going to get lost in their work. It's extra dreamy with a dash of utterly gorgeous. So nice, I have to post them twice!

We are officially obsessed. Do yourself a favor and follow them on Instagram and take a peek at some of the celebs they get to work with, most recently the fabulous Tamera Mowry. In case you need more reason to love them, Brandon Kidd Photography donates ten percent of profits to one or multiple charities on behalf of their clients for every package booked.

Dream Groom

Oh hey Alexander Skarsgard, don't look at me like that ok? Stop undressing me with your eyes. Sheesh, can a girl get some peace up in here? If you're a Big Little Lies fan, you might LOATHE our buddy Alex. I am still mad at him too, but calm yourself because he's not really a wife beating d*ck in real life. It's said that playing that role was not easy for him, so see he does have a soul! He's actually quite a sex pot and a snappy dresser. Check out his clothes and advise your man. Side note, please listen to the Big Little Lies soundtrack on Spotify and you can thank me later.
