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.

Middleton Place Wedding: Andrea + Chris

Picture horse drawn carriage rides, oak trees dripping in moss, and spring flowers in full bloom at Charleston's beautiful Middleton Place. This was the setting for Andrea + Chris' romantic, April wedding. Andrea wore a gorgeous lace, open-back gown from Gown Boutique; Chris a handsome, dark gray suit. Andrea and her stunning bridesmaids rode the horse drawn carriage to the ceremony site where Chris awaited his bride's walk down the aisle.

On October 27th, Kellianne and Peter said their vows at the Saint Luke’s Chapel in downtown Charleston.

Cocktail hour was held in the foyer of Marion’s and guests mingled around the bar. Pictures of Kellianne, Peter, Maggie and family and friends covered the shelves behind the bar and beautiful crafted decorations to match her navy blue, apple green, and white color scheme were sprinkled around the reception. Keeping to the Southern charm of the décor, monograms could be found anywhere from the crafted canvases to the menus. Votive candles were scattered around the venue with custom pearl accents, handmade by the mother of the bride.

After their photo shoot by the water, Kellianne and Peter were announced into Marion’s and shared their first dance to Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You. The smell of warm apple cinnamon cider filled the room, being the specialty drink of the night. Tables were set with beautiful floral arrangements of white hydrangeas with a green accent by Wild Flower Inc. A plated dinner by B. Gourmet came after a blessing. Guests enjoyed a salad and butternut squash soup, followed by their chosen entrees.

Their beautiful cake by Twenty Six Divine was a perfect match to the colors and theme, also complete with a monogram. The three-tiered square cake had a blue and green flower pattern on the bottom, monogram and polka dots for the middle, and a top-tier with white roses. Twenty Six Divine also provided apple pie pops which were in planters next to the gorgeous cake.

After dinner and desserts had been eaten, the dance floor opened and guests congregated around the bar. The smell from Copperpot Confections making fresh pralines on site in the foyer filled the venue and wafted onto East Bay Street.   The dog lovers that they are, Kellianne and Peter also had doggie bags for their four-legged friends, filled with handmade dog treats.
