Boone Hall Elopement: Calla + Thomas

Calla was in love with picturesque Boone Hall Plantation because of its long southern driveway lined with swooping oak trees. She invited her closest family and friends to Charleston for their ceremony followed by an intimate dinner on the back patio. Their family heirloom blue and white porcelain china was our inspiration for the design, accented with green and white florals by Petaloso.  Take peek into this gorgeous intimate wedding styled for the bride and groom and captured by the amazing Aaron and Jillian Photography!

Legare-Waring House Wedding: Liz + Kenny

Liz + Kenny's Legare-Waring House wedding was a detailed dream come true for these two LA love birds. Liz and Kenny met via mutual friends in 2011, on the same day her school, UNC, defeated his alma mater, UW, in a heartbreaker game during the March Madness Basketball Tournament. Luckily, she was able to mend his heart over cheap Chinese food and they’ve been together ever since. As a contributor to multiple wedding magazines, Liz had seen it all. She wanted a wedding that truly stood out from the crowd, and wowed her LA guests. Liz loved the idea of a bright and colorful wedding inspired by vibrant fall hues that accented the gorgeous property of the historical Legare Waring House. She had a clear vision for a whimsical wedding with beautiful wildflowers accented with watercolors. Wildflowers ran the lengths of the tables and tall pillar candles were scattered throughout to create a beautiful glow. Everyone could tell where the bride + groom were sitting, with vintage green arm chairs from 428 Main, gold chargers, and floral napkins saving their seats.   As the ceremony began, guests were able to see the stunning bridesmaids in their mismatched neutral gowns that complemented each maid perfectly. Of course, we can't forget the boys! Navy suits made a huge impact against all of the greenery and Kenny stood out with his unique Charleston favorite-Brackish bow tie. All heads turned, as Liz began down the aisle in her Jenny Packham dress. Her father walked with her down the colorfully petaled aisle, and she met Kenny underneath an arbor of wildflowers. After this sweet couple read their vows and did the traditional Jewish breaking of the glass, it was time to celebrate! Liz + Kenny met their other true love at the end of the aisle for some pictures, and their dog Whiskey, could not have been more excited for his parents.  Guests enjoyed small bites and cool cocktails with floral printed straws during this beautiful October night. After everyone had said a few sweet words, it was time for these guests to get a taste of some southern cooking. Salthouse catering provided a delicious station of country fried chicken and mac & cheese. For those foodies in the group, guests also enjoyed grilled fish tacos and a gorgeous best of season display. Liz added a special detail by getting her bar signs, station signs, and hashtag signs hand calligraphied on water color printed paper to match her invitation suite. Once dancing began, Liz changed from her simple flower crown into her "party crown."  Big and bold blooms let the crowd know that it was time to put on their dancing shoes!  Of course the night wouldn't have been complete without celebrating the tradition of the Jewish hoorah! Liz + Kenny departed with their guests to keep the party going in downtown Charleston!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Carolyn + Blake

Carolyn + Blake's colorful Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding was simply stunning! The tent was draped in a beautiful tiffany blue with pops of pink and gorgeous chandeliers. Sit back and take in all the pretty details; the perfect pair of pink Valentino's, personalized koozies, heart shaped ceremony fans, lanterns, specialty cocktails, custom bar pannels and much much more! The floral centerpieces created by Branch Design Studio were full of white hydrangeas, coral peonies, garden roses, astilbe, dusty miller, and ranunculus. White lounge groupings were set up on both sides of the bar with pillows of the couples new monogram. There was a specialty "Love" sign above the bar provided by 428 Main that lit up the night. The bride was a huge lover of champagne so they had mini champagne favors for their guests, how cute! Everything from the bright blooms, teal draping, gold sparkle, and lots of details made for the perfect romantic day! In the brides words, "Best Day Ever!"

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Christina + Kirk

We cannot get enough of this absolutely stunning bride and her handsome groom! This vintage chic DIY wedding at Magnolia Plantation was the perfect day for Christina + Kirk! Plenty of details to go around..burlap and lace table runners, specialty lounge from 428 main, and a clear top tent with bistro lighting, these two were dancing under the stars all night long! The couple had vintage post cards as their guest book for guests to sign and grab a ribbon wand as they took a seat for the ceremony. The garden style blooms in soft blush hues could not be any prettier, and the brides bouquet was a true show stopper. Full lush cascading florals with a waterfall effect, oh my! These pictures captured by Richard Bell Photography are breath-taking! With a gorgeous bride and darling eyelet umbrella, you can't go wrong.
