For Melissa and Brock, deciding to have their wedding at Folly Beach was a no-brainer. Brock is currently living his dream as an engineer on a merchant marine vessel and Melissa fell in love with the city of Charleston after visiting one summer. The couple decided to go with a nautical theme on their big day to give a nod to Brock’s career and their love of the water and Charleston. Their ceremony took place right on the beach and the Tides, located on Folly Beach, SC made for the perfect backdrop to continue their love story. Melissa wore a simple lace dress and accented her color palette with blush and navy. The nautical theme continued with their beach inspired wedding cake and lantern centerpieces.
