Kelsey married Tanner Wyndham at the historic Evergreen Plantation in Starr, South Carolina on June 22, 2019. The ceremony took place at the wooden cross overlooking 400 acres of farmland with the reception inside The Lodge at Evergreen Plantation.

They were lucky! The wedding almost didn’t take place. Tornado force winds swept through the plantation and much of South Carolina the evening before the wedding. The powerful storm knocked down powerlines and tore limbs off trees. As the sun came up the owners of the plantation were cleaning the grounds of broken limbs and scattered leaves. The power company worked to restore power. The theme of the wedding was “Gone with the Wyndham”and it was truly fortunate that the winds didn’t wreak more havoc!

At noon, everything appeared normal and the preparations for the wedding began. The bride and bridesmaids began getting their hair and makeup done with lots of laughter with the bride’s mother helping button up her gown and adjust her veil. Meanwhile the guys were focused on playing cards and enjoying refreshing beverages. Tanner, who attended The Citadel, (The Military College of South Carolina in Charleston), spit polished his shoes. Next came the baffling task of adjusting neckties and handkerchiefs, but with the assistance of mom and dad and grandparents, this was quickly accomplished. Once done the formal photographs of the bridal party began. The last series of photographs included the “reveal” of the bride to her bridesmaids and her father and brother and ended with Kelsey and Tanner reading their letters to each other watched by the bridesmaids in the background.

At six o’clock the bride glided down the aisle on the arms of her father to accept Tanner as her husband. The wedding included time for the two to build a wooden cross before returning to the exchange of rings, vows to each other, first kiss, and pronouncement of them as man and wife. The newlyweds left the altar to the applause and the gathered guests. Following hugs and congratulations, the newlyweds, their parents and bridal party moved to the front of the Evergreen Plantation antebellum house for formal pictures. The guests walked down to The Lodge where cool air and drinks and a collection of hors d’oeuvres welcomed them. The bridal party made their formal entrance, followed by the first dance, and a traditional Southern dinner, congratulations, speeches, and dancing. The final event of the evening was the cutting of their beautiful wedding cake. After a few more dances the tired, but happy, newlyweds departed for their honeymoon in Jamaica under a shower of sparkler lights.
