Charleston Weddings~ Ryan & Deb at Founders Hall

posted by :: Beth :: 0 thoughts


I first met Ryan when my volleyball team, “The Setting Ducks” (Can I get a Quack Quack?), played his team “Really?”, yes seriously :-) . I liked him straightaway. So nice and so encouraging. (I wasn’t very good.) At the time I thought Ryan was just outta high school. I was quite wrong, but he is so very youthful and young at heart! I was so excited when I met Deb and they announced their engagement. The thing that strikes me most about them is how good of friends they are. I was so honored and blessed to be a part of their day! They picked some of Charleston’s Best Wedding Vendors and imported a few of their own.

A special thank you to Angelita Ballada Esparar of Angelita Ballada Photography for providing us with these awesome wedding images!

Ryan and his men got ready at the Aloft Hotel in North Charleston. The men wore traditional Filipino Barong Tagalong (with Mandarin collar). Ryan’s was white the Groomsmen wore a soft silvery gray. Here they show off their mad skills!

The Maids got to choose their own dress. Just as long as it was purple!

The porch was so romantic when it got dark. The fire was blazing and lanterns lined the perimeter of the venue.
