Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Carissa + Tom

The rainy spring weather didn't stop Carissa and Tom's day from being anything but perfect. This sweet couple hailed from Canada and chose Charleston for a small affair with their closest friends and family. We loved designing this intimate garden style wedding at the Magnolia Plantation Veranda. The lush florals by Branch Design Studio made a dreary day pop! The couple did their first look at Zero George Street which made for the prefect setting with sunlight shining through the window panes. The color palette for the decor was a mixture of pastels-  blush, peach, robin egg blue and spring greens with a touch of gold. The table tops were set with floral vignettes of peonies, garden roses, sweet peas, and light blue delphinium. The head table had a beautiful floral table runner, the vintage charger and gold rimmed glassware were the perfect touch. The Magnolia Veranda provided the perfect backdrop with its large mossy oak trees creating an unspoken breathtaking charm.

Legare Waring House Wedding: Felicia + Sean

There was no better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with the beautiful union of Felicia and Sean at Legare Waring House. This couple was joined together in an official army ceremony, complete with uniforms and a saber arch. A beautiful chandelier hung in the middle of the avenue of oaks above the couple as they exchanged vows with a pretty arrangement of petals lining the aisle.

This DIY bride  brought her own creativity to the table with a combination of burlap and turquoise. Their place cards were individual sea shells placed in sand for guests to keep at the end of the night. The ivory lanterns on every table gave the space an elegant feel throughout the nigh with twinkle lights hanging from the trees. To honor those soldiers that could not be there to witness the wedding, Felicia + Sean set up a POW table to remind everyone the true meaning of memorial day.

Of course the night was not complete without dessert! A turquoise and white cake by Declare Cakes stole the show, especially when it was cut by the grooms sword!  However, it didn't stop there, the brides favorite homemade pies were brought by family members to accompany the cake.

Charleston Groove Factory brought down the house, especially with their rendition of “Faithfully” by Journey, that the couple shared their first dance too.  They said goodbye as they walked through a tunnel of glowsticks and departed in a 1950 white Bentley.
