Bebe Jolly (27 and a teacher) was visiting another guy at Virginia Tech when she first met Austin Tempest (27 and in construction management). They reconnected that summer and immediately started dating—within two weeks Bebe was already going on Austin’s family vacation! Austin popped the question six years into their relationship during a trip to visit Bebe’s family for Easter. “I woke up to my eleven year-old brother making me French toast—he knew about the impending proposal so I guess this was he way of saying that he approved—and then we headed down to Folly Beach,” says Bebe. “I’ll never forget walking on the beach and realizing Austin was slowing down, I knew then he was going to propose, and I started to get butterflies!” After their waterfront engagement, it only felt natural for Bebe and Austin to invite guests to a summery affair at The Island House on Johns Island. “Austin and I are both from the Charleston area, so we knew we wanted to get married somewhere close,” says Bebe. “The Island House was perfect— it had a huge white tent, a field of zinnias and giant oak trees all overlooking the Stono River.” Drawing from their summer date, the couple worked with a light color palette of blush, white and green. Bebe carried a soft pastel bouquet filled with flowers grown in her aunt’s yard (including the succulents!) wrapped in a blue monogrammed handkerchief. A large wooden cross covered in pink garden roses served as a backdrop for the waterfront ceremony followed by a festive tented reception. “We wanted to make sure all of our guest had a great time, and we felt like music plays such a critical role in ensuring that happens,” says Bebe. “Our DJ started with Motown and worked his way to Fitz and the Tantrums!”
