Marion's in The French Quarter Wedding: Kellianne & Peter

On October 27th, Kellianne and Peter said their vows at the Saint Luke’s Chapel in downtown Charleston. It was a beautiful day for a wedding, sun shining as the bride and groom and their beloved dog Maggie captured this day that they will remember forever. After the ceremony, the newlyweds made their way to the Waterfront Park for pictures and guests headed to Marion’s in the French Quarter for cocktail hour.

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.

We were so honored to have Dixie + Patrick's wedding as our first of 2014 - and what a beautiful wedding it was! The ceremony took place at St. Luke's Chapel, on MUSC's campus in downtown Charleston. Dixie looked timeless in her gown and red lip, while Patrick and his best gentlemen sported dashing black tuxedos. Our bride elegantly walked down the aisle with her father to Overture from Music for the Royal Fireworks by G.F. Handel.

After exchanging their vows, the newlyweds invited guests to enjoy the remainder of the evening with them in historical, downtown Charleston. Hibernian Hall looked simply romantic; the neutral tables were accented with gold runners as the glow from the classic chandeliers illuminated the hall. Wild Flowers' hydrangea's, tulips and lisianthus breathed life into the room, accompanied by tall, elegant baby's breath arrangements in latour trumpet vases.

With a perfect combination of southern treats and traditional favorites, Hamby catered the delicious station-style dinner. There was a carving station accompanied by a mashed potato bar, a build-your-own pasta station with all the fix-ins you could possibly imagine, and our groom's favorite, the crab cake and asparagus station. After cutting the single-tiered chocolate cake, guests enjoyed Holy City Sweet's scrumptious cupcakes.

Dixie + Patrick danced the night away to the musical styling of DJ Wade. The Other Brother Entertainment DJ did a fantastic job of mixing some of the bride and groom's favorite oldies with the beats of today's hits - what fun! Per the bride's romantic request for a slow song, she and Patrick also enjoyed some time on the dance floor to enjoy being husband and wife.
