Middleton Place Wedding: Lauren + Gentry

When we think of a classic southern wedding, Lauren and Gentry's Middleton Place wedding immediately comes to mind! These college sweethearts graduated from the College of Charleston and got engaged at the Middleton Place Oak, so it was only fitting for them to invite their friends and family to join them at Middleton Place for their wedding. Lauren spent the morning primping at The Inn, and then headed to the plantation for photos before her ceremony with the gardens as her backdrop, and perfectly accentuated her natural beauty and stunning Modern Trosseau lace gown! Lauren's flowers and color palate were southern perfection, including charm peonies, amaryllis, dusty miller, succulents, fringe tulips, and peonies. There were tears in everyone's eyes as the ceremony began in the Sundial Garden as Gentry saw his bride for the first time. At the close of a heartfelt ceremony, guests were escorted through the Octagonal Gardens to the Crane Pool for cocktail hour, accompanied by peacocks and lambs! Guests were served classic southern appetizers, including oyster shooters, the grooms favorite! But the party really started at sunset as everyone moved to the Middleton Place Pavilion for dinner and dancing with music accompanied .  After a touching blessing by our new groom in his stylish brackish bowtie, guests enjoyed an incredible meal and danced the night away. And what's a southern wedding without corn hole for everyone to enjoy and sweet grass flowers as favors! We loved working with Lauren and Gentry throughout their entire planning process, and wish them only the best with their future lives in Texas together!

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.
