Mount Pleasant Micro Wedding | I’on Meeting House | Sophie + Pedro

Sophie & Pedro’s I’on Meeting House Micro Wedding


How Sophie & Pedro’s Lovestory Began

Learn more about this couple’s journey to a family centric micro wedding at the I’on Meeting House. Pedro & Sophie first met at a gym in Cincinnati, Ohio. After eyeing each other for a while, Pedro introduced himself. However, he was so nervous he stuttered his first name. So Sophie didn’t know what his name was for weeks! Eventually, she found out by asking a mutual friend. The couple’s first date was at a Red’s baseball game and from then on they were inseparable.

Proposal Details and the Bling

Pedro not only asked Sophie’s parents for their approval, but even asked her older siblings.  He proposed to Sophie in his hometown of San German, Puerto Rico. Pedro symbolically chose the same church where his parents, grandparents, and many other relatives had previously gotten married to propose. He did so with a stunning solitaire diamond ring.

Micro Wedding at I’on Meeting House Mt. Pleasant

Sophie & Pedro were married in an elegant micro wedding with only immediate family attending. Their wedding venue was the I’on Meeting House in Mt. Pleasant, SC. It was a simple but charming family oriented wedding.  Video technology played a big part in this wedding. For example, right before Pedro walked down the aisle, he video chatted with relatives from Puerto Rico.  Furthermore, friends and family were able to remotely watch  Sophie’s brothers walk her down the aisle and her father sweetly officiate the ceremony via livestream.

The overall color palette of the day was light and airy with soft pinks and greens.  Pedro wore a light grey suit, while the sisters of the bride wore pink dresses. The reception was brimming with greenery, flowers and lanterns. In addition, Spanish music was incorporated into the reception as a nod to Pedro’s Puerto Rican heritage.  Overall, this was a heart warming celebration of the unification of two families not just two people.
