Real Luxe Wedding: Amy + Craig

This New York City couple had a beautiful southern wedding here in Charleston! Her vision was to have an elegant, glam, and tropical wedding with a palette of gold, blush, white and ivory. The couple fell in love with the avenue of oaks at the Legare-Waring House so they chose to take advantage of that space for their ceremony, and then utilizing the modern,spacious inside of Founders Hall for the reception. The couple was one step ahead of the summer heat by providing their guests with a portable fan that plugs into your cell phone!  Amy's Galia Lahav gown was accessorized with a bouquet of gorgeous naturally hanging orchids by Fox Events. Founders Hall was elaborately decorated with soft draping, lush centerpieces, tons of candlelight, and one luxurious head table with hanging greenery and florals! To take a break from dancing, guests stopped at the slow motion photobooth, grabbed a gourmet popsicle,  and enjoyed a fine cigar. At the end of the night, guests left with mini boxes of Baklavah that were made by the bride's mother, perfect way to end the evening. Congratulations, Amy and Craig!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Anita + Shawn

Anita and Shawn came all the way from New Jersey to have their destination wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This couple traveled the world together, got engaged in Africa, and decided to say their "I Do's" in Charleston, SC. Their ceremony was held in front of the oak tree overlooking the Ashley river. PEW's provided vintage church pews for their guests seating with picture frames lining the aisle of the bride + groom as babies growing into their adult life. The bridesmaids looked stylish in their floral printed dressed with astilbe bouquets, we love the print in their outfits! The Carriage House was draped in soft ivory accented with pearls for a feminine touch. Bright blooms filled the table tops in hues of blush, mint, peach, and turquoise. Wooden centerpieces were filled with ranunculus,  hydrangeas, peach lisianthus, coral ranunculus and mint succulents. Mosaic Catering provided delicious eats and fun specialty cocktails for cocktail hour and the reception! The Little White Box, a 1974 Vintage Volkswagen bus, is a traveling photobooth that arrived later in the night for guests to enjoy! See all of the amazing photos captured by Monika Gauthier Photography!

Middleton Place Wedding: Caroline + Rob

This couple came all the way from England to Charleston for their Middleton Place wedding joined by family and friends. We transformed the pavilion with soft romantic hues, mini gold chandeliers, blush draping, and a gorgeous cake creating the elegant space they dreamed of. The brides bouquet was full of dahlias, lisianthus, roses, peonies and a trailing gold ribbon. The couple said their vows at the octagonal gardens, and then moved to the crane pool to enjoy delicious southern h'ordeuvres including Shepards pie, a British staple! After cocktail hour, guests moved inside the pavilion as the couple shared their first dance as husband and wife preformed acoustically by a close friend. Tasteful stations were provided by Cru catering and pralines were treated to guests as their favor and late night sweet! It was the perfect day for Caroline + Rob, thank you for letting us be a part of it!

Creek Club at I'on Wedding: Caitlin + Chris

Caitlin + Chris had a beautiful romantic wedding at the Creek Club this summer! Their first look captured by Jennifer Bearden Photography seriously has us swooning! Their creek side ceremony overlooking the water provided a beautiful backdrop for their vows to take place.  Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the wrap around porch with rocking chairs and lounge for guests to relax and enjoy the waterside view. The bride + groom incorporated southern charm into their wedding including their new monogram hanging over the fireplace and a gorgeous drape adding a soft touch to the room.  Other cute details were the adorable escort cards, custom cocktail napkins, and pink peony florals to top it all off! King of Pops arrived during dancing to cool down guests with their delicious homemade pops before the couples grand sparkler departure!
