Emily Lady & Paul Welsh

June 29, 2019

Emily Lady never had any doubts about Paul Welsh, especially since he was a Clemson alum. After an initial encounter at a football tailgate, the two spent the very next day talking over coffee, which led to a year of long-distance dating before Emily could call Paul her fiancé. On top of Pretty Place, where Paul told Emily he loved her for the first time, he brought her back bright and early one October morning to watch the sunrise and commit his life to hers. There were quintessential special touches throughout their wedding day at Furman Chapel, with Emily’s childhood piano teacher playing at the ceremony, local Charleston band Finnegan Bell entertaining at the reception at Avenue, and a handmade veil from a family friend that put an original meaning to “something new” on her Poinsett Bride gown. The pair now resides in Charleston, where they relish days filled with beach excursions and delicious Southern food.
