Black and white turns beautifully bold in a Charleston reception.

Historic Romance

The William Aiken House, 843-853-1810 or williamaikenhouse.com, a restored 19th-century home in downtown Charleston, serves as the ceremony and reception site. The property, a popular spot for weddings large and small, features two Victorian-style ballrooms with piazzas, two Carriage House suites for overnight guests and one acre of well-kept grounds.
