Pavillion At Pepper Plantation Wedding | Theron + Krysten

08 April 2013

Theron & Krysten came to Charleston, SC as destination wedding couple and were married on an absolutely gorgeous spring weekend in the Holy City. Their beautiful wedding took place at The Pavillion At Pepper Plantation on Saturday, April 6, 2013. The first Saturday is always the biggest weekend of the year in the Charleston area with the kick off the Volvo Car open, The Flowertown Festival in Summerville, the Cooper River Bridge Run, and so much more. The sun was shining. The flowers were in full bloom and there was a pleasant warmth in the air. Theron & Krysten came to Charleston by way of the great southern city of Atlanta.  I met them in fall of 2012 initially when they booked me for their wedding. If you are coming to Charleston from Atlanta for a destination wedding, you've only got about a 5 hour drive and you are here and ready for one of most wonderful times of your life.  

As one of the top Charleston Wedding DJs, I can tell you that 80-85% of my clientele are brides and grooms coming here from areas all over the country. Over the years, Charleston, SC has exploded into one of the top wedding destinations in the country.

Did I mention that the Cooper River Bridge Run was being held on their wedding day? While some brides opt to wake up on the morning of their wedding day and just chill with their bridesmaids, Krysten decided she would do the Bridge Run. Looking for the best Cooper River Bridge Run playlist, be sure you head over to my Spotify, by searching for DJ Mike Bills

Theron & Krysten's Bluegrass Cocktail Hour
The Pavillion At Pepper Plantation is actually located north of Charleston in Awendaw, SC (about 18 miles north of Charleston). If you are looking for a wedding venue that gives you all the feels of being in the country that feels and that has the feel of a barn, you'll love Pepper Plantation.  Pepper Plantation is perfect for your wedding and provides those porches that are famous in the Lowcountry, a fireplace, as well as outdoor fire pits. When you combine all this with a wonderful waterfront, you have the makings of a truly beautiful Southern wedding day out in the country. With all this being said, you'll understand how perfect the Bluegrass Cocktail Hour playlist was that Theron & Krysten put together for their cocktail hour. They also included some soft rock and country music selections in this playlist. Check out their selections down below. For more ideas for cocktail hour music selections, be sure to click this link.

Wanna Talk To Mike Bills About Being Your Wedding DJ?
Theron & Krysten were a couple who were very much into their music. I had a wonderful time working with them on their music. It's the music that matters for your wedding day. If it's done right, it'll be something that will be remembered for many years after your big day. No two weddings are ever the same when it comes to putting together the perfect wedding playlist. The fact that each and every modern bride and groom are different when it comes to their musical selections makes my job one of the best ever. But actually, when you love what you do (as I do), this is not really work, it's actually a powerful passion of mine.  Brides and grooms should always put their trust in a true professional wedding DJ who has a proven track record of helping brides and grooms put together their wedding playlist. They should put their trust in a DJ who has the perfect voice for the announcements at their wedding reception, and one that will NEVER cut up on the microphone and make offensive comments to you or your guests.
