A Southern affair

May Selby

Just married! Amy and Chase Anderson at Daufuskie Island Resort.

On Saturday, Oct. 7, at half past 4 o’clock, Amy Christine Thomas married Charles Robert Anderson Jr.

The afternoon ceremony took place on charming Daufuskie Island between Savannah, Ga., and Hilton Head, S.C. Accessible only by boat, Daufuskie is a mere 8 miles long by 8 miles wide, with golf carts and bicycles as the preferred mode of transit around the island.

The Southerners chose to return to their roots for their nuptials where many of their friends and family members reside. Amy was born and raised in Hilton Head; Chase hails from Anderson, S.C. They first met at the University of Georgia, moved west, then back to the South, and eventually settled in Missouri Heights.

On the day of their wedding, as Chase attentively waited at the altar, his bride arrived by horse drawn carriage and was escorted down the aisle by her father. Butterflies fluttered around the gardens, gentle breezes wafted in from the Atlantic, and gospel singers sang their blessings. Immediately following the ceremony was a cocktail reception and champagne toast on the lawn at the Daufuskie Island Resort.

Both the bride’s side and the groom’s family are extensive, which created an intimate energy among guests throughout the weekend. Friends and family members traveled from near and afar, with many representatives of the Roaring Fork Valley in attendance.

After spending an evening with friends in Savannah the day after their wedding, the Andersons honeymooned in the British Virgin Islands.To contact May to send info, insights or invites, e-mail allthewaymaymay@hotmail.com
