On July 9, 2016, AWB hit the road for Charleston, South Carolina to Old Historic Rice Mill for the wedding of Katie and Carter Whitson. We picked up the gig for this awesome couple about a year prior, when I asked them if they needed help taking a photo when they were scouting out Old Historic Rice Mill. They were so great to work with!
AWB performed the ceremony with Seth Watters and Nate Sexton on acoustic guitar. The rain stayed away just long enough to have a beautiful ceremony overlooking the Charleston seaside. Ceremony songs included “The masters Theme Song”, “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner, and “Marry Me” by Train.
The reception was performed by AWB’s own Marshall Coats, Nate Sexton, Travis Jones, Seth Watters and John Thrasher. Carter and Katie’s first dance was to the Van Morrison classic, “Into the Mystic”. Notable reception artists covered included were Tom Petty, Queen, Maroon 5, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Black Eyed Peas, Daft Punk, Marvin Gaye and Elton John, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, DNCE, Robin Thicke, to name a few.
AWB would like to thank everyone at Historic Rice Mill for their hospitality and Carter and Katie Whitson for having us.
Here’s the glowing review Carter and Katie were kind enough to leave for us, thanks again guys!

AWB was more than amazing. They put on a fantastic show and blew away the crowd. John was nothing less than spectacular to work with. They learned new songs for us, played what we requested, played a variety of genres, and were great with response time if we had questions. I have been to all my other friend’s weddings, and nothing has ever compared to AWB.

Until next time folks!
