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!

South Carolina Aquarium Wedding: Cecelia + Michael

Cecelia + Michael decided to share their vows on a terrace overlooking the famous Arthur Ravanel Jr. Bridge just across the water from the ceremony site. This wedding was especially unique because family + friends were not the only guests attending. This adorable couple said "I Do" at the SC Aquarium! Even though fish were a unique addition to the reception site, nothing could distract the guests from the beautiful décor. Two huge sparkling chandeliers, provided by IES, surrounded the couple during the ceremony. They were married outside overlooking the Charleston Harbor. Cecelia wore a white fur shawl to keep warm during this chilly November night. Entering the reception space, guests were overwhelmed by the romantic ambiance of the blues and purples. The tables were covered with a teal crinkle linen, complimenting the great ocean tank that sat in the middle of the room. On top of the tables were a beautiful layout of white hydrangeas, white garden roses, and touches of purple sweet peas. Instead of the usual place cards, this couple decided to share a welcome beverage with each of their guests. When walking in the doors, there was a table filled with champagne glasses, where each guest would find their name. Once they had retrieved their glass, they would be informed of the table in which they were sitting. A specific design element that could not go unnoticed were the four stunning chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. During cocktail hour, guests entered the usual room where aquarium guests view the Great Tank. However, PLB transformed this space and made it glam! There was a dance floor set up in front of the tank, with DJ Wade elevated on the risers. A white leather lounge, provided by Eventworks, was set up on either side of the dance floor. Guests just couldn't help taking a peek at the artist in the corner who was live painting the event! Wed on Canvas provides an artist who depicts your wedding day through a painting. This is such a unique and worthwhile idea! After a fun-filled night of dancing, Cecelia + Michael strutted through a sparkler tunnel and took off in their vintage Rolls Royce, provided by ACW.

Boone Hall Plantation Wedding: Sarah + Justin

We're in love with these gorgeous pictures captured by Reese Moore Photography from Sarah + Justin's Boone Hall Plantation wedding this past February!
 
The couple wed in a romantic ceremony held at the Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church. Sarah walked down the aisle in a dazzling white, timeless gown, matched with effortlessly romantic hair and make-up by Posh Salon.

After saying their I do's, the newlyweds joined their guests in a fabulous feast at the beautiful, rustic Boone Hall Plantation. The crowd celebrated with amazing tapas style comfort foods from B. Gourmet Catering and with 80's era tunes performed by the Suicide Blonde Band.

Fun 80's themed details included glow-sticks, wayfarer style sunglasses, snap bracelets which reflected the relaxed and playful personalities of the duo perfectly. Eventhough the rain poured and the sun refused to shine, the smiles on the couples' faces were enough to light up the whole day!
