I loved this city!! Charleston was so charming and the food was uhhh-mazinggg!! My favorite part of the whole trip was ringing in the New Year at the Vendue’s NYE roaring 20’s Gala! It was full of Flapper Girls, Gangsters, and Ragtime music and macaroons! We dressed up and danced the night away!

If you missed it, here’s Part 1 of my trip.

We have actually been completely obsessed with the 20’s era for years and did a 20’s themed styled shoot together around 4 years ago! That’s why when my husband found out this party would be happening he knew we would love it and bought the tickets right away.

I grabbed some screen shots of our snapchat feeds but it was mostly dancing videos!

What an incredible way to begin 2015!

The next morning, we had brunch at a fancy hotel we could only DREAM of being guests at and explored the waterfront park. Charleston sc destination wedding photographer joy michelle DAY2_0034
