Island House Wedding: Jessica + Kris

Jessica + Kris's colorful and preppy wedding at The Island House was the perfect start to our busy May. The bright pinks and yellows with a dust of gold gave the wedding a fun southern feel, perfect for a waterside celebration! One of our favorite things to incorporate into design is pattern, and this bride did it right! Table runners, bar panels, and pole ties all bound together beautifully.

As the ceremony ended, guests were treated with colorful specialty cocktails provided by Squeeze with adorable names like "Martial Bliss" and "Cranberry Crush".  The brides favors were precious jams homemade by the mother of the bride. She used unique mad libs as her guest book that were placed throughout the reception for guests to fill out, so fun! With B.Gourmet in charge of the eats and Charleston Groove Factory playing the tunes, this reception was quite the party!

Just looking at the sweets table made our mouths water! The adorable strawberry and lemon cupcakes made by Sugar bakeshop were the perfect light dessert for Jessica + Kris's summer affair.

Before the bride + groom departed they ran through a tunnel of colorful glow sticks, a great way to end the night!

Caught on Tape

At Pure Luxe Bride, we love when bride and grooms incorporate memorable performances into their wedding reception. Over the years, we have seen our fair share of romantic and sweet renditions as well as creative and funny first dance performances by the bride and groom, and they never get old! We love being able to witness these special moments, and would love to share just a few of our favorites with you.

 

  • During the Gillian + Stewart's wedding at The Island House in Johns Island, the groom joined the band during the reception and sang a beautiful song to his wife. What a sweet moment it was for the newlywed couple!

    • Pure Luxe bride and groom Joe + Ashley married and held their reception at the Legare Waring House. During the reception, the Aunt of the couple sang a beautiful rendition of “At Last” that was dedicated to the newlywed couple.

    • Perhaps one of the most impressive first dances we have seen at Pure Luxe Bride comes from Rachel + Dan's wedding at the Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This creative twist to the traditional first dance surprised guests and had every one ready to dance the night away at this fun reception.

B. Gourmet Catering provided catering services for the reception. Southern style food stations were placed inside the beautiful white tent with wrought iron chandeliers. Their 28 guests sat at one large rectangular table to create a more intimate feel with shades of purple, grey, and white in their decor elements. Although the bride and groom grew up in Scotland, they now call Australia home. However, elements from their Scottish heritage were seen throughout the wedding. Many guests wore kilts and other forms of Scottish attire. Also, the band Cahoots flew to Charleston from the bride and grooms hometown in Scotland to provide bluegrass music for the reception. All of these details created a personal element for the wedding.To add to the personal feel of this wedding, the groom sang and played guitar to his wife towards the end of the reception.
