Harborside East Wedding: Sarah + Mike

Each detail at Sarah + Mike's Harborside East Wedding contributed to making the evening such an exciting celebration!  The happy couple said "I do" under a simple yet stunning floral arbor backdrop decorated by Branch.  A glamorous gold mirrored seating chart led guests to their seats, where they found their names written on mussel shells in gold calligraphy.  Guests helped themselves to Mosaic's delicious hors d oeuvres and stations that satisfied each guest's palate.  There was a southern comfort, flatbread, and slider station - all which were a huge hit!  Dinner was topped off by a mouth watering red velvet and vanilla tiered cake from Sablee.  Guests enjoyed the rest of the night dancing to the musical talents of DJ Wade, who had just as much fun as the crowd!  Sarah + Mike were showered with love by all of their friends and family, which made the showers happening outside insignificant to the couple and their guests.  Charleston Style Limo shuttled guests from the venue to the hotel as the night drew to an end.  Best wishes to the newlyweds!

William Aiken House Wedding: Megan + Keith

Megan + Keith's William Aiken House wedding  was nothing short of fabulous! The venue was the perfect setting for this white, black, and gold affair captured by Evan Laettner! Gold dipped roses, white modern lounge sets, black chandeliers, and metallic linens...need we say more!? Megan's bridesmaids looked stunning in their head to tow gold glitter Badgley Mischka gowns. One of our favorite details of the day were the place cards, gold horses labeled with guests names to help find their seat. You can never have too much gold in our opinion and this wedding did it just right!

Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding: Jaclyn + Oliver

Jaclyn + Oliver's Lowndes Grove Plantation wedding was a gorgeous Southern celebration full of coral, gold, and seafoam green accents! This local couple decided to pay homage to their city and tie the knot in beautiful Charleston with the Ashley River as their backdrop. The day began in the Lowndes Grove suite where Jaclyn and her girls got their hair and makeup done by Paper Dolls while sipping mimosas and relaxing pre-nuptials. When the girls were all glammed up, Jaclyn and her father Don shared a very special father and daughter first look. This is a great alternative if you and your groom opt out of the first look! Once Oliver and his groomsmen arrived on site, Jaclyn was tucked away while everyone lined up for the ceremony. Jaclyn carried a lush bouquet filled with green succulents and coral blooms, tied together with lace and seafoam green ribbons. Oliver's mouth dropped wide open when he saw his stunning bride gracefully walk down the aisle. The soon-to-be newlyweds stood beneath a beautiful floral arbor of garden roses, lisiantus, and succulents as they said their vows in front of their closest friends and family. After Jaclyn + Oliver tied the knot, cocktail hour kicked off under the tent! Elegant long tables filled the room with mahogany chivari chairs. The tablescape was complete with gold rimmed chargers, gold silverware, coral napkins, custom menus, lush blooms and greenery, gold lanterns, and custom gold pineapples! These gold spray-painted pineapples were a hit. A symbol of Southern hospitality and welcome, these gold pineapples were incorporated throughout the wedding on the couple's koozies, as small cake toppers, and as garnishes on the passed hors d'oeuvres. The seafoam green cake was another focal point in the room, complete with gold flecks and Jaclyn + Oliver's initials. Guests were treated to a delicious stationed meal, a custom gelato bar at request of the groom, and dancing the night away to the sounds of Charleston Groove Factory. This band kept guests on their feet all night long! Friends, family, and the elated newlyweds danced to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" before Jaclyn + Oliver departed under an archway of sparklers into their getaway vintage Rolls Royce. We so enjoyed working with this couple on their gorgeous Southern design, and we're not soon to forget those gold pineapples! Wishing Jaclyn + Oliver years of health, happiness, and love.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Kimberly + Clint

Kimberly + Clint's Magnolia Plantation Wedding was a beautiful, intimate gathering for the happy couple! The bridal party started hair and makeup bright and early with Paper Dolls in the Carriage Suite at Magnolia Plantation, while the groom and his groomsmen got ready together offsite. With rain on the horizon and a desire for pictures on Magnolia's lush grounds, the couple opted for a first look (although not originally planned) and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous! We were overjoyed that Kimberly + Clint got the shots they wanted, and it just goes to show that with a little trust, everything will turn out just fine, rain or shine! Following the couple's impromptu first look, the ceremony took place under the oaks with a view of the water as Kimberly + Clint said their vows to each other. Kimberly carried a hand-tied bouquet by Wild Flowers filled with white and green hydrangeas, garden roses, white ranunculus, blush pink lisianthus, and more, plus fabulous pops of bright pink ranunculus. Following the ceremony, Mosaic Catering kicked off cocktail hour with gourmet mimosas in pineapple, orange, and cranberry flavors and bloody marys, complete with celery, pickled vegetables, cracked pepper, bacon swizzles, and a variety of hot sauces. Passed hors d'oeuvres were also served, including chicken dipped waffle bites, yogurt parfaits, and apricot chicken salad. Next, the newlyweds were announced into the reception as "Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Thomas" and they shared their first dance to "At Last" by Etta James. The bride + groom then welcomed their guests to the reception and invited them to enjoy brunch! Brunch stations were set around the room, including His + Hers omelettes, Charleston grits, and an assortment of biscuits. This spread by Mosaic was simply delicious! Tables were adorned with lush centerpieces in rustic wooden boxes and locally made and wrapped pralines as a sweet treat for guests! Rustic-chic lounge was set in the middle of the space in front of Kimberly + Clint's sweetheart table, complete with basket weave chairs for the sweet couple. Ivory drape by Pure Luxe Bride softened the space and tied the design together perfectly. Guests had a wonderful time on the dance-floor dancing to tunes by DJ Rob Duren. At the end of this lovely day, the new Mr. + Mrs. were happily sent on their way with a bubble send off! Thanks so much to Aaron + Jillian for capturing all this pretty!

Historic Rice Mill Wedding: Lacey + Joey

We absolutely adored this romantic glam brunch wedding for Lacey + Joey, a couple from Florida who chose the Historic Rice Mill to serve as the perfect backdrop for their wedding on the water! The day began with hair and makeup by Paper Dolls (and plenty of Starbucks) for the bridal party at the Charleston Place suite. The bridal party + groomsmen then made their way over to the Rice Mill for an outdoor ceremony under a clear tent on the back patio. Who says rain is bad luck on your wedding day?! Pure Luxe Bride rocked the rain plan with swagged light pink drape from the top of the tent and ivory drape at the altar, held back by lush floral tie backs full of white hydrangeas and blush garden roses, creating an intimate ceremony space. Rows of gold chivari chairs lined the aisle that was covered with pink, blush, and white rose petals. Joey's smile was contagious as Lacey gracefully walked down the aisle beside her father. After the ceremony, guests made their way inside for the start of the reception! The room was filled with shades of taupe, peach, blush, ivory, and champagne, as two long tables ran down the center of the space. Clear candle votives were scattered along the length of the table with tall crystal candelabras topped with a spilling arrangement of white hydrangeas, blush sweet peas, blush ranunculus, white amaryllis, and more. Another gorgeous floral arrangement was an elegant hanging garland over the bride + groom's cake, brimming with white majolica spray roses, blush garden roses, white lilac, and more! Branch did an absolutely beautiful job with these flowers. Textured linens and taupe loveseats completed the lounge's chic look. Guests enjoyed a delicious brunch, complete with a juice and coffee bar, by Good Food CateringChucktown Sound kept the guests on their feet as they danced the day away before it was time to send off the happy couple through a cloud of bubbles! Thanks so much to Aaron and Jillian for capturing this gorgeous Historic Rice Mill Wedding!
