Middleton Place Wedding: Shelby + Nick

To say that Shelby + Nick's Middleton Place Wedding was a night to remember would be an understatement. As guests arrived at the venue, they were greeted with passed champagne to quench their thirst as they took a stroll through the beautiful gardens to arrive at the Octagonal Garden for the ceremony. The bridesmaids looked totally chic in mismatched black dresses and even the flower girl looked adorable in her custom-made black tutu dress and pearl necklace. As Shelby + her father began their walk down the aisle, Nick looked at his bride with awe and soon after, the couple said their "I Do's" in front of a historic tree with the shimmering lake in the backdrop. After their first kiss, the newlyweds were sent off by their guests waving pom-poms and were picked up by a horse-drawn carriage to finish taking pictures. Cocktail hour was held in the garden overlooking the Butterfly Lakes with a strings duo to set the mood. The bride + groom's signature cocktails, Southern Sweetness served in a mason jar and a Yankee Mule in a copper mug, were a hit and the couple joined cocktail hour just in time to have their first dance at sunset. At the end of their first dance, guests were surprised with a fireworks show over the lake to kick off dinner and the reception. Dinner was served in the Greensward under café lighting with beautiful red and black florals and candelabras with Ferrero Rocher place cards. After dinner, everyone got ready to dance the night away under the reception tent with black and white lounge, mini desserts, and a cigar roller! When the night was over, Shelby + Nick were sent off with a sparkler tunnel and were whisked away in a vintage white Rolls Royce.

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Katrina + Eoin

Despite the 1000 year flood that occurred the weekend of Katrina and Eoin's Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding, this couple was determined to say "I Do!" Guests and family flew in from all over the globe, including family members from Ireland! The rain took a break for the sweet couple and allowed them to capture their first look photos under the oak tree on the lawn. After a romantic ceremony, guests were invited under the tent to enjoy their cocktails and hor d'oeuvres. The tent was filled with blush pin-tuck and satin linens intermixed among the tables.The sweetheart table stole the show with a blush sequined linen, and floral decorated chair backs. The gorgeous tabletop florals varied in height and sizes and included blush and pink roses, plum hydrangeas, sweet peas, and astilbe with accents of ivory and gold. Origami paper cranes in white, pink, and gold were set on the tables as place cards. Guests signed a jumbo bottle of champagne to give Katrina + Eoin their best wishes. After dinner, dancing was kicked off with Irish sing-a-long's! The bride + groom had picked specific songs and printed lyrics to be passed out to all the guests. PLB could not stop smiling as everyone was on their feet singing along to "Whiskey in the Jar." The dancing continued with the perfect mix of oldies and new hits! Katrina could not wait to change into her fabulous after party dress and finish the night out with a bang! The bride + groom ended the night by recognizing their shared love for the South Carolina Gamecocks. Guests were given rally towels to wave in the air as the fight song, "Sandstorm", played. We were so excited that the weather held out for this wonderful couple!

Island House Wedding: Jessica + Kris

Jessica + Kris's colorful and preppy wedding at The Island House was the perfect start to our busy May. The bright pinks and yellows with a dust of gold gave the wedding a fun southern feel, perfect for a waterside celebration! One of our favorite things to incorporate into design is pattern, and this bride did it right! Table runners, bar panels, and pole ties all bound together beautifully.

As the ceremony ended, guests were treated with colorful specialty cocktails provided by Squeeze with adorable names like "Martial Bliss" and "Cranberry Crush".  The brides favors were precious jams homemade by the mother of the bride. She used unique mad libs as her guest book that were placed throughout the reception for guests to fill out, so fun! With B.Gourmet in charge of the eats and Charleston Groove Factory playing the tunes, this reception was quite the party!
