Cindy Boley & John Hamblet, September 24, 2011, Bowens Island Restaurant


Five years after meeting fellow Chicagoan Cindy Boley, John Hamblet proposed while the couple moved into their Charleston home. “As soon as we put the boxes down, John explained that it was time for new beginnings and asked me to marry him,” says Cindy, who soon set about coordinating her almost entirely DIY wedding. With casual and rustic as lead themes, Cindy and John chose Bowens Island Restaurant’s dock house for their Big Day. “We share a love for nature, wood, handmade items, and all things Japanese,” says Cindy, who has Japanese heritage and took inspiration from nature for the blue, brown, and white color palette. When the day arrived, the couple walked down the aisle to the sound of conga drums and celebrated with a wedding that was quintessentially them.
