William Aiken House Wedding: Alex + John

Alex and John hosted their wedding at the William Aiken House, a seamless blend of 18th- century charm and modern sophistication. After getting ready, the couple met on the wrap-around porch for their ‘first-look” which was beautifully captured by Virgil Bunao. The couple was married on the front lawn with an English Garden setting that entailed an olive branch garland wrapping the seating and hanging lanterns in the oak to create a picturesque backdrop for the ceremony. Pink, peach, and white hued blooms with accents of airy greenery topped every table alongside many gold accents. The reception area was full of gorgeous details including the lush floral chandelier, lounge pieces, birchwood and white checkered dance floor, and custom linens from Nuage.  Alex + and John ended the evening with a dazzling sparkler departure as Mr. & Mrs. Kirkpatrick!

Folly Beach Wedding: Kelly + Bert

We could not have pictured a better way to end our busy fall season than with Kelly + Bert's perfect Folly Beach Wedding. This sweet couple rented out an enormous house right on the beach to house their family + friends for the weekend. The house also doubled as the perfect venue for their wedding! With high tide coming in right at 4PM, Kelly + Bert had an intimate standing ceremony on the porch of the house. The bridal party was able to have a long beautiful processional up the boardwalk, and Kelly had that sweet bridal moment that every bride wishes for. All eyes were on her as she walked the boardwalk with her dad and met Bert underneath the floral arbor that awaited her. Bert's father was able to officiate the wedding adding personal details and sweet remarks. The couple had written their own vows and the beautiful words brought tears to their loved ones. After the ceremony, the porch was transformed for cocktail hour! Guests were able to look out upon the beach while sipping on a cool beverage provided by Spike. After grabbing a plate of food, guests headed downstairs to the reception area. Kelly's vision of jewel tones came to life with plum napkins and over-spilling greenery. The tabletops were adorned with gold flatware and jewel toned votives. Kelly's cake was truly one of a kind, the purple ombre coat accented the reception space perfectly. This was such a fun crowd, and they danced in the sand till the night came to an end! Kelly + Bert could not have been more in love, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Harborside East Wedding: Liz + Jason

The April showers were in full swing during this beautiful Harborside East wedding for Liz + Jason last spring. Even with a bit of darkness in the clouds, this wedding glowed with bright pops of light blue, orange, and hot pink! We loved this colorful design and it reflected the bubbly personality of this adorable couple.Personal details provided by the bride were scattered all over the reception space. Guests enjoyed a delicious treat provided by King of Pops and watched as the bride + groom departed in a vintage Bentley. We wish these newlyweds a lifetime of love, laughter, and happily ever after!

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!

Guests entered into the rustic reception with hints of yellows and greens radiating throughout the carriage house.  Guests were welcomed, a blessing was given and dinner was served! The Lowcountry Slider Station offered pulled pork barbecue, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken and mini waffles with all the fixin's! The Southern Comfort Station had mini meat loaf bites and a vegetable succotash. Lastly, the Grits Station offered build-your-own grits! Shrimp, sausage, bacon, cheese and more were used to top the delicious stone ground, cream 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.
