Talia and Collin’s story goes way back. The pair met as children on the tennis courts of Wachesaw Plantation and crossed paths again when they worked at Gulfstream Cafe in the summer of 2004. After attending college in separate states, both moved back to their hometown of Murrells Inlet in 2010, where they reconnected when one drink turned into hours of chatting. What Talia believed to be an early 30th birthday getaway to Charleston turned into a romantic engagement celebration when Collin proposed in Waterfront Park in front of the famed pineapple fountain. Brookgreen Gardens served as the perfect venue for the wedding, with a ceremony at the Diana Fountain and a reception at the Holliday Cottage. One of the couple’s first dates was at Nights of a Thousand Candles and both Collin’s siblings were also married at the gardens. Bob Jewell, Collin’s father, recently retired as President and CEO, so the location really served as a second home to the pair in many ways. The April wedding had the same beautiful and natural feel of the venue, with flowers looking as though they had just been picked and candlelight giving off a warm and romantic tone. It meant a lot for the couple to be married at a location that had a very special place in both their hearts.
