South Carolina Aquarium Wedding: Cecelia + Michael

Cecelia + Michael decided to share their vows on a terrace overlooking the famous Arthur Ravanel Jr. Bridge just across the water from the ceremony site. This wedding was especially unique because family + friends were not the only guests attending. This adorable couple said "I Do" at the SC Aquarium! Even though fish were a unique addition to the reception site, nothing could distract the guests from the beautiful décor. Two huge sparkling chandeliers, provided by IES, surrounded the couple during the ceremony. They were married outside overlooking the Charleston Harbor. Cecelia wore a white fur shawl to keep warm during this chilly November night. Entering the reception space, guests were overwhelmed by the romantic ambiance of the blues and purples. The tables were covered with a teal crinkle linen, complimenting the great ocean tank that sat in the middle of the room. On top of the tables were a beautiful layout of white hydrangeas, white garden roses, and touches of purple sweet peas. Instead of the usual place cards, this couple decided to share a welcome beverage with each of their guests. When walking in the doors, there was a table filled with champagne glasses, where each guest would find their name. Once they had retrieved their glass, they would be informed of the table in which they were sitting. A specific design element that could not go unnoticed were the four stunning chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. During cocktail hour, guests entered the usual room where aquarium guests view the Great Tank. However, PLB transformed this space and made it glam! There was a dance floor set up in front of the tank, with DJ Wade elevated on the risers. A white leather lounge, provided by Eventworks, was set up on either side of the dance floor. Guests just couldn't help taking a peek at the artist in the corner who was live painting the event! Wed on Canvas provides an artist who depicts your wedding day through a painting. This is such a unique and worthwhile idea! After a fun-filled night of dancing, Cecelia + Michael strutted through a sparkler tunnel and took off in their vintage Rolls Royce, provided by ACW.
