Harborside East Wedding: Sarah + Mike

Each detail at Sarah + Mike's Harborside East Wedding contributed to making the evening such an exciting celebration!  The happy couple said "I do" under a simple yet stunning floral arbor backdrop decorated by Branch.  A glamorous gold mirrored seating chart led guests to their seats, where they found their names written on mussel shells in gold calligraphy.  Guests helped themselves to Mosaic's delicious hors d oeuvres and stations that satisfied each guest's palate.  There was a southern comfort, flatbread, and slider station - all which were a huge hit!  Dinner was topped off by a mouth watering red velvet and vanilla tiered cake from Sablee.  Guests enjoyed the rest of the night dancing to the musical talents of DJ Wade, who had just as much fun as the crowd!  Sarah + Mike were showered with love by all of their friends and family, which made the showers happening outside insignificant to the couple and their guests.  Charleston Style Limo shuttled guests from the venue to the hotel as the night drew to an end.  Best wishes to the newlyweds!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Haley + Jeff

Haley + Jeff had a beautiful Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding. Haley was a true Pure Luxe Bride, incorporating sparkle into her wedding any chance she had. Her tent shimmered with blush pink and accents of silver. The poles were disguised in a soft pink drape, and glittering linens covered the cocktail tables. The floral combinations from Branch caught the attention of all the guests with a combination of white hydrangeas, silver dollar eucalyptus, roses, and dusty miller in a mercury glass vase stole the show. The bride carried a bouquet of white O'Hara garden roses and peonies tied with a ribbon to match her gown.She looked stunning in her uniquely beaded dress with a low cut back and bold red lips. Following the ceremony, a pink champagne tower provided by Polished awaited the guests for cocktail hour. This wedding had a ladies and gents tents set up on either side of the dock, and looked the part. The ladies tent was covered with pink draping and inside a beautiful crystal chandelier hung above the feminine lounge with lip gloss, perfume, and a fun framed quote from Coco Chanel for the girls to use.  On the other side was the gents tent; it had a brown leather sofa, drum coffee table, and iron wrought chandelier to create the masculine vibe. Cigars were offered inside the tent for the male guests to enjoy. The couple danced the night away to the awesome Calvin Taylor Band and the couple rode off in a vintage Rolls Royce provided by ACW!

William Aiken House Wedding: Megan + Keith

Megan + Keith's William Aiken House wedding  was nothing short of fabulous! The venue was the perfect setting for this white, black, and gold affair captured by Evan Laettner! Gold dipped roses, white modern lounge sets, black chandeliers, and metallic linens...need we say more!? Megan's bridesmaids looked stunning in their head to tow gold glitter Badgley Mischka gowns. One of our favorite details of the day were the place cards, gold horses labeled with guests names to help find their seat. You can never have too much gold in our opinion and this wedding did it just right!

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!

Middleton Place Wedding: Helen + Aaron

Helen + Aaron's romantic glam Middleton Place wedding was absolutely stunning! The day began with excitement as Helen and her bridesmaids got their hair + makeup done at the Francis Marion Hotel while Aaron and his groomsmen suited up for the big day on Daniel Island. Then, the wedding party all met at Middleton Place for the bride + groom's highly anticipated first look! Aaron was awestruck when he laid eyes on his beautiful bride for the very first time, and the entire wedding party had so much fun photographing on Middleton's gorgeous, lush grounds pre-ceremony. After the signing of the Ketubah and a toast to the soon-to-be Mr. + Mrs., it was time to tie the knot! Luckily, the rain came to a stop just in time for the Helen + Aaron's nuptials in the picturesque Octagonal Gardens. Standing beneath a custom-built huppa by Wild Flowers Inc., the bride + groom said "I do." In traditional Jewish fashion, Aaron smashed the glass and the guests yelled "Mazeltov!" as the new Mr. + Mrs. happily walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz. Helen + Aaron departed the ceremony via carriage ride to arrive for cocktail hour at the pavilion where they sipped and mingled with guests before it was time to be announced into the reception! Mr. + Mrs. Aaron and Helen Bernie were announced onto the dance floor to the sounds of "Sweet Home Alabama" before sharing their first dance to "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by Sleeping at Last. Lyrics from this song were incorporated into wedding details such as lounge pillows and custom frames that displayed sweet sayings for the couple. Guests enjoyed a stationed meal by Cru Catering, a special hookah area by Tabbuli, and vintage lounge furniture by Snyder. Shades of blush and ivory gave the pavilion a soft ambiance, while the tent outside had an elegant feel complete with platinum drape by Pure Luxe Bride, silver chivari chairs, and a white plantation bar, complete with a custom light-up bar sign. This design was beautiful, and perfect for the occasion! Guests then enjoyed a dessert bar and dancing, including a very special dance to "HORA", where all of Helen +Aaron's family got up into the chair! As the last song of the night approached, everyone got out onto the dance floor for Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" before Mr. + Mrs. Bernie departed through a sparkler archway to their downtown after party! Wishing Helen + Aaron all the best and a big thank you to Trent Bailey for capturing this gorgeous celebration!

William Aiken House Wedding: Vanessa + Josh

The dropping temperature did not stop Vanessa and Josh from having a beautiful winter William Aiken House wedding! This December bride embraced her wedding date and used the cold month to accent her design. The guests were offered apple cider cocktails(alcoholic and non-alcoholic) to stay warm before the ceremony began. The couple said "I Do" in front of the reflecting pool outside the historical William Aiken House. As a special surprise for the Groom, Vanessa arranged butterflies to be released at the end of the ceremony in honor of Josh's mom. 

As guests made their way upstairs to enjoy dinner, they were taken aback by the gorgeous sage and blush design that greeted them. Specialty china provided by EventWorks made the table set something to talk about! A sage napkin was wrapped around the plate, and a thank you card created by Vanessa and Josh was placed on top. Vanessa implemented a unique idea of putting the place cards in the fork so that they stood upright. To pull the table together, small arrangements of hydrangeas, garden roses, and  dusty miller provided by Branch were placed in the middle, accompanied by mercury table numbers and votives.

Lounge furniture from Snyder was sprinkled throughout the grounds for the guests who needed to rest their dancing shoes. Grey fabric draping covered the poles throughout the tent, and large floral centerpieces covered every surface.

When guests became tired from all the dancing, they were welcomed to enjoy the Smores that were being made hand made over a fire pit. They also used this time for a picture perfect moment under the large oak tree, where twinkle lights by IES were hanging all around. This sweet couple said their goodbyes and were sent off into the bright nightlife of Charleston. PLB is in love with this cozy winter wedding!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Stephanie + Chad

Stephanie + Chad's classic  Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding couldn't have been more perfect! These out-of-owners traveled from North Carolina to have their dream wedding in Charleston at the picturesque Lowndes Grove Plantation. Stephanie looked breathtaking in her Modern Trousseau gown as she walked down the aisle of St.Lukes chapel with her father to "Rondeau" by Mouret. Her lush bouquet was full of white peonies and white ranunculus with accents of dusty miller, lavender sweet peas, white fringe tulips, white patience garden roses, and more!  As guests began to arrive at Lowndes Grove for the reception, Stephanie + Chad warmly welcomed them into the house for cocktail hour while guests enjoyed delicious sips and bites. The clear tent was gracefully draped in ivory with chandeliers glistening from the top.  At each place setting, guests found their names written in gold calligraphy on Magnolia leaves with sprigs of rosemary, olive, and lavender accenting each napkin. Long table garlands full of magnolia leaves, olive branch, and seeded eucalyptus filled the tables, with colorful pops of white fringe tulips, white ranunculus, and lavender sweet peas. Gold silverware, gold rimmed glasses, and custom menus by Silver Starfish completed this elegant table setting.  Guests enjoyed a delicious 3 course plated dinner while the sounds of big band music by Joe Clarke Big Band flooded the tent.  This fantastic night had to come to an end, but not before guests enjoyed a variety of mini desserts and one more song by the band before departing in the vintage Rolls Royce!  Thanks so much to Aaron and Jillian for capturing all this pretty and best wishes to the sweetest couple, Stephanie + Chad!

William Aiken House Wedding: Erin + Gibb

We are still swooning over Erin + Gibb's glam wedding at the William Aiken House! These South Carolina natives chose downtown Charleston to host their dream wedding, and it was truly a day to remember. After getting ready at IOP, The couple met at William Aiken House for their first look where Gibb could not take his eyes off of Erin! As guests began to arrive for the ceremony, the wedding party was tucked away for last minute laughs and sips before Erin's father walked her down the aisle to the sounds of Seth G playing "A Thousand Years". Erin's lush bouquet by Branch was full of white patience garden roses, blush Japanese ranunculus, white sweet peas, jasmine vine, all tied together with an ivory ribbon. Cocktail hour began shortly post-ceremony with drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres of pear & almond brie, duck confit, bacon wrapped scallops, and tuna tartar.  Happy tears then filled the room when Erin and her father danced to "My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw, and Gibb and his mother to "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. Following dances, stations were open and ready for guests to enjoy!  Guests tables were decorated with tall, fluted glass vases full of lush white larkspur, stemmed candleholders with floating candles, and textural gold mercury glass. After guests enjoyed dinner, it was time to cut the cake, drink champagne, and dance! This red velvet and lemon cake was in beautiful shades of pink, gold, and ivory, tying in the wedding colors. Then, it was time to dance Quiana Parler's and friends! Special details included custom pink and taupe cozies for drinks, a wedding piñata guest book, "Drunk on Love" cocktail napkins with gold foilg,  and light-up sunglasses and glow sticks for late night!
