So....we left Cedar Key on April 24th and headed to the Charleston, SC area with an overnight stopover in Georgia. We were VERY lucky to get a site for week at Buck Hall Recreation Area in McClellansville. We have stayed here before but it is a very popular campground and hard to snag a reservation.
It was quite the chaotic week but so much fun! Shortly after we arrived, my sisters Cathy (Mother of the Bride) and Barbara picked me up at the campground and we were off and running! We had a few pre-wedding errands to run and spent some time at the nail salon getting pedicures and manicures.
It was fun sister time and we all got matching nails!
That evening, we had a cookout and campfire at the campground.

The next day, we enjoyed a girl’s lunch in honor of the bride. Ciara, Barbara, Cathy, and I enjoyed a delightful lunch at a local restaurant in Summerville.

Instead of toasts at the wedding, Ciara and Bryan encouraged anyone who wanted to share stories to do so at that time.
|Bryan and Ciara thanked everyone for being there and for their support.|

The next day, despite a little rain right before the ceremony, Ciara and Bryan’s wedding day was perfect!
