Dallas Meets Boston in This South Carolina Wedding

The couple met in Paige Hardison’s hometown of Dallas but got engaged in Chris O’Rourke’s native Boston. When it came time to find a venue, they met in the middle. Not only was the South Carolina spot convenient for their out-of-town guests, but the low-country surroundings inspired the entire weekend. After saying “I do” on September 17, 2016, the couple stunned the crowd with an a cappella choir belting “Oh Happy Day.”

“It was so much fun to see our guests totally surprised. Everyone started dancing down the aisle after us,” Paige says.
