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.

Historic Rice Mill Wedding: Lacey + Joey

We absolutely adored this romantic glam brunch wedding for Lacey + Joey, a couple from Florida who chose the Historic Rice Mill to serve as the perfect backdrop for their wedding on the water! The day began with hair and makeup by Paper Dolls (and plenty of Starbucks) for the bridal party at the Charleston Place suite. The bridal party + groomsmen then made their way over to the Rice Mill for an outdoor ceremony under a clear tent on the back patio. Who says rain is bad luck on your wedding day?! Pure Luxe Bride rocked the rain plan with swagged light pink drape from the top of the tent and ivory drape at the altar, held back by lush floral tie backs full of white hydrangeas and blush garden roses, creating an intimate ceremony space. Rows of gold chivari chairs lined the aisle that was covered with pink, blush, and white rose petals. Joey's smile was contagious as Lacey gracefully walked down the aisle beside her father. After the ceremony, guests made their way inside for the start of the reception! The room was filled with shades of taupe, peach, blush, ivory, and champagne, as two long tables ran down the center of the space. Clear candle votives were scattered along the length of the table with tall crystal candelabras topped with a spilling arrangement of white hydrangeas, blush sweet peas, blush ranunculus, white amaryllis, and more. Another gorgeous floral arrangement was an elegant hanging garland over the bride + groom's cake, brimming with white majolica spray roses, blush garden roses, white lilac, and more! Branch did an absolutely beautiful job with these flowers. Textured linens and taupe loveseats completed the lounge's chic look. Guests enjoyed a delicious brunch, complete with a juice and coffee bar, by Good Food CateringChucktown Sound kept the guests on their feet as they danced the day away before it was time to send off the happy couple through a cloud of bubbles! Thanks so much to Aaron and Jillian for capturing this gorgeous Historic Rice Mill Wedding!
