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!

Gibbes Museum Wedding: Cassady + Joe

At Pure Luxe, we love DIY brides! The creativity and uniqueness that brides like Cassady bring to their wedding weekend makes for a celebration that is unlike any other. Cassady and her mother engaged in several DIY projects, such as the patterned table runners and napkins and collected vintage milk glass for the centerpieces.

Vintage hankies were placed on each seat during the ceremony to help wipe away those happy tears of celebration. This gesture left a thoughtful impression on wedding guests, and served as a memento from the wedding.

Perhaps one of the most unique items found at this wedding was the amazing cake provided by WildFlour Pastry. This yellow ombre cake was unlike any cake design we have seen, and it quickly became one of Pure Luxe’s favorites.

The Rusty Hook Ramblers, a local bluegrass band, provided music during the cocktail hour. The bride and groom discovered this bluegrass band while eating dinner at Zia, and knew they had to have the band play at their wedding! At the reception, guests enjoyed music from the DJ of Ascend Entertainment. When it came time to depart the celebration, the bride and groom left in a London Black Cab. These unique London cabs are always a hit and are a fun way to exit your wedding reception. Party guests continued the celebration of Cassady and Joe at Blind Tiger Pub.
