Istanbul, Turkey and Lancaster, SC one beautiful couple.  

While a formal ceremony was held in Istanbul, Turkey, in August, Dilara and Justin chose to exchange vows for local friends and family here in the heart of South Carolina. 

On September 28th, 2019 North Corner Haven had the honor of hosting a second vow exchange and celebration for this beautiful couple. 

Many special details were included making this celebration one to remember.  After spending a relaxing night in the Farm House, the groom’s mother worked passionately to create arrangements from foraged and farm flowers.  The Farm House and Event Lawn offered the mood they desired:  a relaxed and casual backdrop to share their union with their closest friends and family

The Back Porch Orchestra serenaded guests with an acoustic rendition of “Swept Away” by the Avett Brothers as guests made their way to witness the vowel exchange. On a beautiful day just as summer was turning into fall and the sun was setting over the lake, friends and family looked on from the farmhouse porch as Dilara and Justin made promises to each other that they would cherish for the rest of their lives.   Dilara looked gorgeous as her lovely dress flowed elegantly and puddled onto the grass.

Cocktail hour ensued in the courtyard as guests enjoyed deliciously shucked oysters (with all the fixin’s, of course) from Beaufort, SC brought by the groom’s father. The couple’s wedding registry gave guests a glimpse of their exquisite wedding in Turkey. Photos of the occasion lined the table where guests left well wishes for the newlyweds. 

Paella, Brisket, and a Farm fresh Salad bar were just a few of the Chef’s creations served at various stations which surrounded the barn. Tables adorned with delicate fresh floral arrangements were assiduously placed throughout the barn allowing guests to enjoy their meals and the celebration of Dilara and Justin’s first dance

Getting this group to dance was not a challenge, hugs, singing and lots of laughs surrounded the farm as the music entertained the guests throughout the evening.

Toasts were made for the happy couple and the night came to a close. As guests made their way onto the coach buses provided by Rose Transportation, they were delighted with a special and “warm” touch of Chick Fil A awaiting them for their end of the night travels.
