Middleton Place Wedding: Traci + Alex

This Middleton Place Wedding could not have been a more beautiful fall day for Traci + Alex. The clouds cleared just as the ceremony began at the Middleton Oak. This Oak was incredibly special to the couple because it was the same Oak where Alex popped the question! After a heartwarming ceremony, the guests made their way over to the Crane Pool for cocktail hour.  A horse drawn carriage brought guests over to the pavilion for an intimate seated dinner. The space was softened by a ceiling of ivory drape and lanterns that hung above the guests as they ate dinner. The navy tabletop was the perfect accent for the gorgeous floral centerpieces that stole the show! The lush florals were filled with hues of rust, burgundy, and deep orange to reflect the fall season.  Traci's guests loved sitting in the wicker lounge area by the dance floor. They could rest their feet while still being in the center of the action. The unique cakes provided by Jim Smeal were exactly what the couple had envisioned! Alex had a special cake of his own that was designed to look like a hobbit house! Traci + Alex were such a wonderful couple to work with, and we are so happy that we could take part in their big day!

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!

Middleton Place Wedding: Jennifer + Paul

Jennifer + Paul radiated love as they said "I Do" in front of the butterfly lakes at Middleton Place. The weather was perfect for this small, intimate ceremony that was shared with family and close friends. The two couldn't have looked any more beautiful and in love!

The horse drawn carriage picked up the guests as well as the newlyweds and took them across the large plantation to the pavilion, where the reception was being held. Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour and then proceeded inside to the gorgeous wonderland filled with light pinks and plenty of candles. The seating was set up family style, with one long table to accommodate the 40 guests.

The sheer white drape hanging above the intimate tabletop was the perfect romantic touch to dinner. Once everyone was seated, the bride + groom entered in and made their first appearance as husband and wife with a dance to "All of Me" by John Legend. Jennifer then requested a special dance with her daughter to "My Girl" by The Temptations. After dinner, Jennifer + Paul cut the stunning pink cake by Delicious Desserts. The cake included lace detail to match the bride's gorgeous gown- stunning!

DJ Rob Duren did not disappoint when he played the brides favorite song, The Hokey Pokey. Jennifer as well as many other guests didn't leave the dance floor all night until the couple was ready to depart.
