Rachel & Jurrie’s Charleston Destination Wedding

This wedding was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings

Y’all, I am so excited to finally share Rachel and Jurrie’s Dutch meets Charleston destination wedding! When I first met these two for coffee last summer and they told me how they were blending Jurrie’s Dutch heritage – he’s from Holland – Rachel’s Southern upbringing – she was raised in Charleston – and their love of New York City and the water – they met and live in NYC and bonded over their love of sailing – I was just super excited for their wedding…and they hadn’t hired us yet! You guys know I love when weddings are a reflection of the couple and this one was oozing R&J all over it! Both of them grew up around the water and Jurrie’s nickname is Captain Jurrie which I just love!

The details were so thought out. The 3 recurring things were anchors, nautical maps of Charleston, Manhattan, and Holland, and their custom made wedding logo that looks like a compass with their initials in it! The bride wore a gorgeous Hailey Page gown topped with a glam bolero, while the groom sported a custom blue suit and initialed cuff links (and flip flops for that casual vibe). A pair of wooden wedding clogs were made for Rachel which were fun to photograph even though it wasnt sensible for her to actually wear them all day, and clogs were seen again on top of their wedding cake! So much love was put into many of the details – Jurrie’s mom and sister hand made the pillows at the ceremony (featuring the nautical maps) in Holland and brought them over to the States for the wedding, a lot of details were hand crafted in the Martha Stewart Weddings office where Rachel works, one of their friends made some of the desserts, their friend designed the wedding logo, a projector displayed a live Instagram feed of their hashtag, and the couple surprised their friends and family with an amazing choreographed first dance to “Shut Up and Dance”.

There was also a lot of fun elements to the day. Jurrie’s best friend drove him to the ceremony on a boat (and the best part is the boats name is King for a Day), they provided glow sticks at the reception where guests made all sorts of fun props out of them, the glow sticks were used in the send off, and then everyone piled onto a party boat to continue dancing until they docked at the hotel to end the night!
