Lindsey and Chris - Cassique on Kiawah Island

On April 24th, 2010 Lindsey and Chris had a beautiful wedding on Kiawah Island however it was much different than the wedding we set out planning over a year in advance. The happy couple was originally to be married at The Rivercourse at Kiawah Island however about 1 month before their big day the venue burned to the ground. (I know....gasp!!) After I called Linsdey and they had a moment to wrap their heads around it...the new wedding plans started to form. We had to move quick but thankfully Lindsey and Chris were as understanding as any couple could be about it and jumped right on board! So with plans in motion to make a bigger and better ceremony and reception at Cassique on Kiawah Island in motion, Lindsey and Chris decided to have a little fun with their "situation" and changed their entrance song into the reception to "Great Balls of Fire." So with smiles, on April 24, 2010 the couple had a beautiful ceremony and reception at Cassique! Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day! Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone involved who made this wedding a beautiful reminder that sometimes bad things happen to good people and love does conquer all!

Here is what Chris (the groom) had to say about the process of losing your venue and starting all over 1 month before the big day...

"When our wedding venue burned down about a month before our wedding we were a little panicked to say the least. Somehow Emmy managed to break the news to my wife, keep her calm and assured her that everything would work out. She had answers for us, had already spoken to our vendors, refocused us and talked us through the next steps. She essentially took the reins and all we had to do was make a few decisions, Emmy took care of the rest. In the end, I’m happy to say, it worked out even better than we could have ever imagined and we have Emmy to thank for that! We literally re-planned everything. Emmy sent us options to choose from (flowers, new venue floor plan, changed from stations to sit-down dinner, d├ęcor, furniture rentals, draping for the tent, etc). We were here in NY so it was really hard for us to go and see everything, so we trusted Emmy’s input for everything. Without Emmy, I honestly don’t know what we would have done. We would recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding planner. On the day of the wedding, she worked the entire day and even though it was a busy day, she always kept a smile and had a great time. We didn't have to worry about anything like remembering to eat dinner, where to go for the pictures, when to get up for the cake cutting, etc. We were able to enjoy our wedding without worrying about a thing and we really have Emmy to thank for it all! Thank you Emmy, we don’t know how you did it but everything was amazing!! Lindsey keeps saying that she wants to do it all again exactly the same."
