The Cedar Room: Charlotte & Drew

Following their "I Do" at First Baptist Church, Charlotte & Drew joined their guests as Mr. & Ms. Painter for the first time at The Cedar Room for their reception. Picture tall gold stands, each topped with an arrangement of blush and white florals and lush greenery. Guests spent the majority of the night on the dance floor, under a chandelier adorned with Italian Ruscus & Jasmine Vine. By the end of the night, guests had danced up an appetite for the late night happy hour of Nutella Milkshake sippers, Truffle & Parmesan Fries, and three-cheese tomato and basil calzones that awaited them. Charlotte & Drew's wedding was elegant and romantic, with the perfect touch of glam, and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!

Tip: Opt for your first look the week before the wedding! With all the nerves that comes right before a wedding, Charlotte chose to use her bridal portrait time to get all dressed up and do their first look at Magnolia Plantation with her photographer! It took all of the anxiety out of the day knowing they had seen each other, so they could just enjoy and have a great time! A bonus, she got beautiful photos under live oaks at a plantation with their sweet pup, plus photos downtown, best of both worlds!

Gadsden House Wedding: Cate + James

This white & green Gadsden House  wedding was our very first look at this amazing new venue downtown. This remodeled historical home looked better than ever, what a transformation! Stunning gold and crystal chandeliers hung from the ceilings, neutral palette, and the gorgeous bridal suite with a gold gilded mirror. Cate was the definition of a blushing bride, she took everyones breath away in her perfect fitted gown with sweet low back and bow. The reception area was filled with whites, lush greens and accents of gold. We were in love with this classic romantic design, and of course this wonderful couple! We are wishing Cate + James nothing but the absolute best!

Legare-Waring House Wedding: Liz + Kenny

Liz + Kenny's Legare-Waring House wedding was a detailed dream come true for these two LA love birds. Liz and Kenny met via mutual friends in 2011, on the same day her school, UNC, defeated his alma mater, UW, in a heartbreaker game during the March Madness Basketball Tournament. Luckily, she was able to mend his heart over cheap Chinese food and they’ve been together ever since. As a contributor to multiple wedding magazines, Liz had seen it all. She wanted a wedding that truly stood out from the crowd, and wowed her LA guests. Liz loved the idea of a bright and colorful wedding inspired by vibrant fall hues that accented the gorgeous property of the historical Legare Waring House. She had a clear vision for a whimsical wedding with beautiful wildflowers accented with watercolors. Wildflowers ran the lengths of the tables and tall pillar candles were scattered throughout to create a beautiful glow. Everyone could tell where the bride + groom were sitting, with vintage green arm chairs from 428 Main, gold chargers, and floral napkins saving their seats.   As the ceremony began, guests were able to see the stunning bridesmaids in their mismatched neutral gowns that complemented each maid perfectly. Of course, we can't forget the boys! Navy suits made a huge impact against all of the greenery and Kenny stood out with his unique Charleston favorite-Brackish bow tie. All heads turned, as Liz began down the aisle in her Jenny Packham dress. Her father walked with her down the colorfully petaled aisle, and she met Kenny underneath an arbor of wildflowers. After this sweet couple read their vows and did the traditional Jewish breaking of the glass, it was time to celebrate! Liz + Kenny met their other true love at the end of the aisle for some pictures, and their dog Whiskey, could not have been more excited for his parents.  Guests enjoyed small bites and cool cocktails with floral printed straws during this beautiful October night. After everyone had said a few sweet words, it was time for these guests to get a taste of some southern cooking. Salthouse catering provided a delicious station of country fried chicken and mac & cheese. For those foodies in the group, guests also enjoyed grilled fish tacos and a gorgeous best of season display. Liz added a special detail by getting her bar signs, station signs, and hashtag signs hand calligraphied on water color printed paper to match her invitation suite. Once dancing began, Liz changed from her simple flower crown into her "party crown."  Big and bold blooms let the crowd know that it was time to put on their dancing shoes!  Of course the night wouldn't have been complete without celebrating the tradition of the Jewish hoorah! Liz + Kenny departed with their guests to keep the party going in downtown Charleston!
