Elise Yardley Cobb and Tim Hussey, November 5, 2011, Private Downtown Home


When Elise Yardley Cobb met Tim Hussey outside King Street’s Rebekah Jacob Gallery, she recognized him from a documentary she’d seen about the Charleston painter, photographer, and graphic designer. Three hundred and sixty-four days after their first date, Tim proposed, and the design-savvy duo quickly began brainstorming a cozy, backyard affair. “Everything was loaned, antique, local, or designed by us,” says Elise, a former elementary schoolteacher. The bride assembled family wedding photos and borrowed her great-grandmother’s veil from the Smithsonian. Tim bartered art for services so they could splurge on extras, like 1980s Polaroid film for a photo booth (with one of his abstracts as its backdrop). When the day arrived, the couple swapped vows in a friend’s garden beneath an orange tree draped in lights. Says Elise, “It was perfect.”
