Tess & James' vision was brought to life at the historical Carolina Inn. Meristem Floral was instrumental in their implementation of a kaleidoscope of colors through their beautiful blooms. They were married during a private ceremony in an intimate courtyard with dancing following on the lawn. Tess'’ parents are both masters of spoken word; one a poet, the other an author. By the time their speeches were done, there wasn’t a dry eye under the tent. The dance floor was a ceaseless celebration through the night before ushering Tess and James through a shower of sparklers.
