Cheers to Francesca + Justin’s 10th Anniversary celebration. After an intimate vow renewal, they welcomed their family and friends to celebrate, including US! That’s right, we were guests for once!!! We started the evening with champagne gorgeously styled in Justin’s vintage car … followed by a delicious al fresco dinner with incredible music underneath chandeliers the sweet southern oak trees at Wingate Plantation. It was a dream Charleston evening … and we loved celebrating with them. Francesca and Justin have been dear friends since we moved to Charleston … we’ve watched our business grow and been there for each other personally and professionally over the years.
