After my weekend, I advocate eloping

-A A +A
By Carolyn Ten Broeck

Ashley Matthews is now Ashley Drake. That was the easy part. The path that led to that occurrence was more involved, more chaotic, more expensive. I doubt Will and Kate had such raucous nuptials.
But I’m getting the cart before the horse. Allow me to gee-haw, turn around.
Almost two weeks ago if you will remember, I went to Beaufort, S.C. to  hold the mother-of-the bride’s hand and to ensure she showed up for the marriage vows of her oldest child.
Beaufort is a lovely, Southern city filled with antebellum charm and is the second oldest city  in South Carolina.
When Ashley was about 13 years old, her family vacationed in the Low Country and on the way home saw one of those historical markers beside the road.
They stopped and Ashley fell in love. That love endured for the next 15 years and on May 14, she married Dusty, her second love, with her first love looming in the background–the Old Sheldon Church.
