This morning we are excited to show you this fresh and spirited low-country Charleston wedding inspired by the movie “The Big Chill”. Charleston weddings seem to be quite a new favorite theme over here at Once Wed. The rich city history mixed with a quaint southern charm puts Charleston weddings at the top of our list. Whether you are a local or seeking an exciting destination wedding vibe, a Charleston wedding might just be the ideal location for you. This bride and groom wanted their wedding to feel like a big college reunion weekend with an intimate family feel. Plus, who doesn’t love the soundtrack to that movie? To help capture the spirit of the whole wedding, Paperback Weddings put together a short film for this sweet couple. You can find more images in our gallery as well as many more real weddings to draw inspiration from while planning your own wedding.

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
