Picture horse drawn carriage rides, oak trees dripping in moss, and spring flowers in full bloom at Charleston’s beautiful Middleton Place. This was the setting for Andrea + Chris’ romantic, April wedding. Andrea wore a gorgeous lace, open-back gown from Gown Boutique; Chris a handsome, dark gray suit. Andrea and her stunning bridesmaids rode the horse drawn carriage to the ceremony site where Chris awaited his bride’s walk down the aisle. Andrea and her father glided down the aisle at the Butterfly Lake’s Charleston Virtuosi’s playing in the background.
After exchanging vows over looking the Butterfly Lakes, Andrea + Chris invited their guests to enjoy “Planter’s Punch” and “Arnold Palmer’s” under the mossy oaks at Middleton Place’s Crane Pool. Cocktail hour took place in front of azalea hill accompanied by scrumptious hors d’oeuvres. The duo took photos with their bridal party and got some truly memorable snapshots together. Andrea + Chris were announced into their perfectly draped reception to “All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles. The light blue table cloths, pink linen napkins and white and pink floral arrangements perfectly complimented the Pavilion. Lanterns were scattered throughout the ceiling’s draping to light up the night! Guests followed their escort cards to their assigned table, where they found a mini-bottle of firefly awaiting their arrival with a sweet note from the Bride + Groom.
Brick Lane Catering served a delicious three-course dinner with salads, soup and a main course – all of which looked mouth-wateringly delish! The newlyweds cut into their elegant champagne cake by Twenty Six Divine decorated with a cascade of flowers. Guests danced like there was no tomorrow alongside The Dickens, until it was actually time for their departure through a sea of sparklers! These fabulous vendors helped to make Andrea + Chris’ wedding possible!
