Ashlyn and Tommy’s beautiful summer wedding at the Island House is featured in The Wedding Row!
In the words of The Wedding Row, “For anyone who doubts that chemistry trumps all, meet Ashlyn and Tommy. The two Charlestonians were struck super shy when they first bumped into one another at a party in 2013. But thanks to a little magnetism, still managed to exchange numbers. Six years of dating later, the two were hosting an oyster roast for his December birthday, when Ashlyn shoved a chip in her mouth at the same time Tommy grabbed her to propose. Chip held in place chipmunk-style, Ashlyn laughs about how the whole thing went down. “It had been raining,” she says, “and he went to get down on one knee when someone yelled, ‘It’s wet!’ I’m pretty sure I gave a side eye—I’d been waiting for this day to come.” She got her moment, and pretty soon, they were planning a Charleston wedding as only locals can.
Because the pair spend summer weekends out on the Stono River, exchanging vows at The Island House overlooking those same waters was a dream come true”.
