Cinnamon Backwoods Cocktail

When in Charleston, embrace the Southern culture and enjoy a good old fashioned regional drink.  Inspired by today’s South Carolinian nuptials, our Cinnamon Backwoods Cocktail is sure to transport you to the days of southern charm with a hint of 1920’s prohibition. Take part in a bit of America’s naughtier history as you sip on this libation and follow along as Angie and Mike give us a peek into their Charleston nuptials. Photographer Priscilla Thomas walks us through the day:

Angie and Mike’s Wickliffe House wedding features fresh spring colors of blue, blush and white. The couple worked together on every detail. Angie even noted that Mike suggested blue hydrangeas to match their wedding colors. I often tell couples on their wedding day that things rarely go as planned, but they go as they should. Angie and Mike’s proposal is a great example of that as well. Their wedding even included some unexpected elements like tourists asking permission to photo bomb some of their couple portraits. And those strangers brought it, with face masks and all. The couple also wanted to include a bridesmaid who was unable to attend due to being near the end of her pregnancy. A printout portrait glued to a wooden stick served as her stand-in. Though not literally present, her paper cutout posed in some portraits and even made a cameo on the dance floor later in the night. It is evident that Angie and Mike care most about having a good time with the ones they love most and undoubtedly they created plenty of unforgettable memories with friends and family during their destination wedding week in Charleston.
