A Middleton Place Wedding by Taylor Rae Photography

By Krista

Today’s gorgeous couple, Jason and Kate, had a small destination wedding at the gorgeous Middleton Place, in South Carolina, captured by Taylor Rae Photography. We love how meaningful the destination was to their family, and love to be reminded that all weddings, big and small, are perfect when there is a couple who are truly in love.

From the beautiful bride, Kate,

Neither Jason nor myself wanted a big wedding because we wanted to put the focus on our marriage and not the big show that often comes with a big wedding. Also, we wanted a personal event and didn’t want to be influenced by the opinions of others. So that lead us to the decision of doing a destination wedding, or a “planned elopement” as we like to call it. Jason’s dad had done some genealogy research that traced their ancestors to Middleton Place. He had visited Charleston and Middleton Place a few years ago during a work conference, and he just fell in love with the beauty, history, and family connection. When I met Jason two years ago, he often spoke about Middleton Place and why he loved it so much. He even has pictures blown up and framed in his home of the places he liked the most. After Jason proposed, we started talking about a place to get married almost immediately. We thought about the beach, a family lake house, Vegas (okay, not really), and a mountain top in Colorado, but nothing really felt right. Finally, Jason mentioned Middleton Place and everything just clicked; it felt perfect. I guess this is when we say that the rest is history. :)

Congratulations, Kate and Jason, and thank you Taylor Rae Photography for sharing these beautiful images!
