Congratulations, Claire & Nelson!

Claire Alexis Girman and Nelson Andrew Costello were united in matrimony at Wingate Place on Johns Island, South Carolina, on April 9th. The bride is the daughter of Annette and Jeff Girman of Beaufort, South Carolina. Her groom is the son of Merrie and David Costello of Mission Hills, Kansas. The Costellos toasted their son and future daughter-in-law at a lovely rehearsal dinner at Edmund’s Oast in Charleston, South Carolina, on the evening of April 8th. Following the ceremony, a beautiful wedding reception was held at Wingate Place. The newlyweds enjoyed a delightful honeymoon in Nassau, Bahamas, and Harbour Island, Bahamas.
