  8. I've really liked the "Cadbury's Chocolate" cocktails, in a jam jar, with a striped straw! Wow, that is coktail-fun!
    In Formentera you just get the same Mojito thing all over the place - just too boring and damn expensive too :-) :

  16. This is so beautiful! I love the idea of a Southern wedding, and was toying around with the idea of using this location for mine as well! One of my dear friends went on her mission to South Carolina last year, and she's getting married in October with a Southern theme, like this! I can't wait to see what she does :)

    Thanks again for doing this with me! You are the best!

  35. I heart Charleston, it is one of the most charming southern cities and your wedding choices are perfect for the venue. My friend moved there a few years ago and had a wedding on Folly Beach outside charleston and it was so lovely. I want to get married all over again (to the same man of course) but in that wedding you have laid out!
