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.

Thomas Bennett House Wedding: Andria + Matt

Andria + Matt came from Ohio to have their Thomas Bennett House Wedding in Charleston, SC. The brides design inspiration came from the colors of a peacock, and the love for all things emerald. It was the most beautiful fall October day, with dining al fresco, a delicious meal served by Salthouse Catering, followed by sweets by Gala Desserts. The bouquet by Branch Design Studio was full of white calla lilies, peacock feathers, and greenery. Clusters of hydrangeas, tulips, and garden roses filled the tables with a of gold and candlelight. Sparkly linens, lounge under a gorgeous chandelier, and a DIY photobooth are just a few of the fun details! The bride and groom and their guests rode off in a rickshaw at the end of the night to continue the party!

William Aiken House Wedding: Kristy + Zach

Kristy and Zach's William Aiken House wedding was certainly one to remember! Complete with a personal cigar roller, caricature artists for favors, and  late night dessert stations. The ceremony was picturesque, with garden flowers lining the aisle, and greenery draped over the pergola with a chandelier to top it all off. The bridesmaids looked impeccable in various mix- matched metallic dresses, complementing the classic black and white tuxes. A gorgeous tent with lounge and lighting provided by Loluma created the perfect ambiance for the night. After the delicious meal provided by Fish Catering guests came downstairs to dance the night away to the tunes of Charleston Groove Factory. Last but not least, that cake!  We will let the pictures speak for itself on this one, but wow! Sit back and enjoy all the images captured by Amelia and Dan.
