William Aiken House Wedding: Alex + John

Alex and John hosted their wedding at the William Aiken House, a seamless blend of 18th- century charm and modern sophistication. After getting ready, the couple met on the wrap-around porch for their ‘first-look” which was beautifully captured by Virgil Bunao. The couple was married on the front lawn with an English Garden setting that entailed an olive branch garland wrapping the seating and hanging lanterns in the oak to create a picturesque backdrop for the ceremony. Pink, peach, and white hued blooms with accents of airy greenery topped every table alongside many gold accents. The reception area was full of gorgeous details including the lush floral chandelier, lounge pieces, birchwood and white checkered dance floor, and custom linens from Nuage.  Alex + and John ended the evening with a dazzling sparkler departure as Mr. & Mrs. Kirkpatrick!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Jenna + Luke

Jenna and Luke's Magnolia Plantation wedding was the perfect day from start to finish! Jenna is an industry friend, and we were so excited when she reached out to us to help plan her big day! Jenna + Luke's passion for nature and horses inspired the equestrian details and all things western which was the perfect vision for the Carriage House. Horseshoes were set at each seat as a guest favor, custom tribal patterned napkins, and dream catchers as the backdrop of their sweetheart table. Their organic florals were full of natural greens and potted terrariums complimenting the laid back environment of the wedding day. Jenna looked stunning in her gorgeous custom gown, but we expected nothing less from a bride that works at a local bridal gown boutique! We wish Jenna + Luke a lifetime of love and happiness! See all the beautiful photos captured by Sara Bee Photography here!

Middleton Place Wedding: Stephanie + Brett

A warm, sunny Saturday afternoon was perfect for Stephanie and Brett’s Middleton Place  wedding. After the couple's intimate first look, wonderfully captured by Dana Cubbage, the ceremony took place in the octagonal garden with the large oak tree and Ashley River as their backdrop. The weather paired perfectly with the couple's light and romantic décor. Pretty in pink, the pavillion was set with gorgeous white and blush blooms and soft draping with mini chandeliers and special bride and groom chairs. The couple loved to travel so as their favor they had a plane shaped bottle opener topping each napkin. The favor was adorned with a tag that read 'let the adventure begin' so cute! This perfectly complimented the couple’s personalities and guests were thrilled as they took their seats for dinner. Following dinner, guests danced under the stars with music provided by Darby Event. We wish Mr. + Mrs. Vlasek love, laughter, and happiness ever after!

Legare Waring House: Katie + Adam

It was a gorgeous July summer day for this sweet couple to become husband and wife!  Katie + Adam wed at The Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul before returning via ACW Trolley to the Legare Waring House for the reception.  The couple chose vibrant colors of coral, orange, pink and yellow floral arrangements, which looked stunning against the bridesmaid's aqua floor length dresses, yet no one upstaged Katie who looked absolutely stunning in her Hayley Paige wedding gown.  Guests enjoyed drinks and dinner from CruCatering while mingling under the reception tent or taking in the many scenic views of the historic southern home.  Gold IES chandeliers hung from the tent to set the mood for the celebration.  King of Pops arrived to provide guests with a late night snack to cool them off from the Charleston summer heat.  The glow stick straws that guests could put in their drinks were a huge hit and such a fun detail! The night ended with a glow stick departure while Katie + Adam drove away in a 1957Chevrolet Bel Air to spend their first night as husband and wife before heading to Costa Rica for their honeymoon.  We wish you the best, Katie + Adam!

Magnolia Plantation Carriage House Wedding: Stacey + David

David + Stacey's Magnolia Plantation Carriage House wedding was the perfect venue to say "I do".  After getting ready, the couple met downtown for their 'first look' outside the Dock Street Theatre, which was beautifully captured by Dana Cubbage. The Theatre was a special place for the bride who grew up preforming there as a little girl. This romantic, river-front location (along with the very compliant, and stunning weather) provided the perfect backdrop to a stunning Jewish ceremony and reception in front of their closest family and friends. David + Stacey were married under a beautiful hand-made Huppah that was accented with a fabulous florals by Wild Flowers, Inc.  Pink hued blooms filled the table tops with accents of navy and gold with specialty gold sequined runners.  A white birdcage with spilling flowers adorned David + Stacey's sweetheart table. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails by Squeeze named "The Sherfman" that was made up of vodka, grapefruit juice, simple syrup & bitters, and a "Southern Belle" made up of firefly vodka and lemonade. Their signature cocktail was named after their fun wedding social media hashtag, #Sherfman (a combination of both of their last names.) Delicious hors d'oeuvres were made and served by Salthouse catering, while guests mingled and enjoyed the DJ's selection of Sinatra-style music. David + Stacey danced the night away, including a very fun Horah (which was our favorite part of the evening!) The newly weds rode off in style in a Rolls Royce as the new Mr. & Mrs. Shiffman.

Middleton Place Wedding: Shelby + Nick

To say that Shelby + Nick's Middleton Place Wedding was a night to remember would be an understatement. As guests arrived at the venue, they were greeted with passed champagne to quench their thirst as they took a stroll through the beautiful gardens to arrive at the Octagonal Garden for the ceremony. The bridesmaids looked totally chic in mismatched black dresses and even the flower girl looked adorable in her custom-made black tutu dress and pearl necklace. As Shelby + her father began their walk down the aisle, Nick looked at his bride with awe and soon after, the couple said their "I Do's" in front of a historic tree with the shimmering lake in the backdrop. After their first kiss, the newlyweds were sent off by their guests waving pom-poms and were picked up by a horse-drawn carriage to finish taking pictures. Cocktail hour was held in the garden overlooking the Butterfly Lakes with a strings duo to set the mood. The bride + groom's signature cocktails, Southern Sweetness served in a mason jar and a Yankee Mule in a copper mug, were a hit and the couple joined cocktail hour just in time to have their first dance at sunset. At the end of their first dance, guests were surprised with a fireworks show over the lake to kick off dinner and the reception. Dinner was served in the Greensward under café lighting with beautiful red and black florals and candelabras with Ferrero Rocher place cards. After dinner, everyone got ready to dance the night away under the reception tent with black and white lounge, mini desserts, and a cigar roller! When the night was over, Shelby + Nick were sent off with a sparkler tunnel and were whisked away in a vintage white Rolls Royce.

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!
