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!

William Aiken House Wedding: Janice + Mark

Janice + Mark's  William Aiken House wedding was a night to remember! Jennifer Bearden knocked this one out of the park, capturing every detail of the day beautifully! The bride + groom said "I Do" under a crystal chandelier with an ombre petals lining the aisle.  Of course its not a Pure Luxe wedding without a little glitz and glam and these dinner tables were done right! Gold trumpet vases filled with mounds of hydrangeas and peach roses by Loluma, candlelight,  and gold utensils to pull it all together! The reception tent was peach-perfect! With Quiana Parler and Friends playing the jams,  guests danced the night away! As the night came to an end, Janice + Mark were sent off by their guests with a sparkler exit. They rode off on an adorable bike taxi- the perfect ending to their ever-so-perfect day!

This sweet couple exchanged vows right before sunset under a stunning floral arbor done by Branch Design Studio. Their smiles and laugh were truly contagious and radiated throughout the night. They danced together for the first time ever as Mr. and Mrs. Vogler to " In My Life " by The Beatles. Rather than the typical band or DJ as entertainment, they couple had a string quartet play throughout the night. It was a romantic and classic addition to the evening.

No guest left this party hungry! They had a late night snack of chicken and waffles, a true southern staple! To top it all off, they had a fried sweets dessert station complete with donut holes, cheesecake rangoon, and cinnamon apple pie eggrolls, yum! The newlyweds left under a tunnel of sparklers held by the people who love them most.
