Wedding Reflections

Kelli and Rodney Rhinehart both grew up in small South Carolina towns; Kelli in Wagener, and Rodney in Blackville. Both benefited from a country upbringing where the South Fork of the Edisto River, fields, and woods were their playground and kids grew up mucking stalls, feeding goats and chickens, and learning all the lessons that nature provides. Kelli and Rodney met in 1985 and married in 1987. They were blessed in 1993 by the birth of Gabrielle, whom they call Gabbie; in 1996 by son Hamilton; and in 2000 by Elise, who goes by Ellie.
