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.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Tori + Ryan

An elegant simplicity was emitted all around Magnolia Plantation wedding of Tori+Ryan. The lingering rain in the morning gave the day a nice cool breeze making the July heat bearable. You could see the love these two shared by the way they looked at one another. Happy tears came from the grooms eyes as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time walking down the aisle. This wedding was filled with details galore! Personalized matches, water bottles, koozies, and sunglasses made the perfect touch.  The bridesmaids were dressed in a mixed array of lovely navy dresses accompanied with DIY bouquets made by one of the bridesmaids. The bridal party entered into the reception space with their sunglasses on ready to party. Shrimp and grits, Pork Loin, and a Mac and Cheese bar were a huge hit with the guests! This crowd couldn't wait to get out on the dance floor, and Charleston Grove Factory helped them shake it all night long!

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!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Kim + Scott

As Kim + Scott's guests arrived to Magnolia Plantation Carriage House, they were welcomed by some of the couple's favorite songs like "Steal My Kisses" by Ben Harper and "Grow Old With Me" by Adam Sandler. Right before the bride walked down the aisle, two and a half year old Ethan beared the rings down the aisle in the most adorable tuxedo and executed his job perfectly. A stunning Kim was escorted by her father down the aisle to "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, and was greeted at the alter by her beaming groom. The couple exchanged vows and sealed them with a kiss! As the newlyweds walked down the aisle as husband and wife, guests tossed lavender into the air for a one of a kind exit.

Cocktail hour began and guests enjoyed delicious hors d'oeuvres and a specialty, Southern cocktail made with Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonade named the "Charleston Palmer". Guests lounged in mix-matched vintage pieces provided by 428 Main that were placed around the dance floor for a laid back atmosphere. The escort cards were handmade tree wood name cards. These wood escort cards were made from trees native to South Carolina - how cool! As guests grabbed their escort cards, they replaced them with a Polaroid photo of themselves to hang on the boards in place of their name card. One photo to keep for themselves and one for the newlyweds to treasure!

The Southern Comfort Station had mini meat loaf bites and a vegetable succotash. Lastly, the Grits Station offered build-your-own grits!

After dinner, Kim + Scott bounced back and forth between the dance floor and their guests - never without smiles spread across their faces. Later in the reception, the cake was cut and King of Pops arrived to hand out their oh so delicious ice pops! Engraved forks atop WildFlour Pastry's cinnamon buns were the wedding favors: a perfect late night snack or breakfast for the next morning! Kim + Scott enjoyed one final dance alone before their sparkler exit amongst their closest family and friends.
