Jenna and Chris had a picture perfect day! The two had a beautiful ceremony at First Baptist Church and followed by an amazing ceremony at Daniel Island Club! The love these two share is so sweet!
When it came to time to plan their wedding Gene wanted to keep tradition and have the military type wedding at the Citadel. The two wanted to incorporate the traditional military wedding with a laid back beach feel for the reception. They also wanted to incorporate Charleston culture into the reception because they knew it would be a destination type wedding since all of their families are scattered across the US. As a fun touch Mary and Gene chose to go with Shag dancing and lessons, low country boil and pulled bbq pork, and a sword line at the end of the ceremony to keep with their Charleston/Military them! To top off the fun Cocky the Gamecock even made a surprise appearance complete with dancing!
Laura and Lance met at a wedding they attended for mutual friends. After meeting and falling in love the two decided they wanted to get married in the city that they have been vacationing at for the last few years together. They wanted their day to include their love of travel as well as the people closest in their lives to celebrate their new marriage! The ceremony and reception were at the Historic Rice Mill in downtown Charleston- a venue that boasts waterfront views as well as old Charleston charm. The two had a sweet ceremony followed by a night of dancing and fun!
Whitney and Christopher had a beautiful wedding at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church with a reception following at Patriots Point Links. Holly at A Charleston Event did a wonderful job helping Whitney created the perfect day around her beautiful coral and navy colors. Paper Dolls Wedding Hair and Make-Up had Whitney looking beautiful as she walked down the isle to her groom. Classical Charleston always brings a wonderful ambiance to the wedding ceremony. Whitney and Chris had several personal touches to the evening including: Crab Cakes to represent Chris’s hometown, seagrass flowers to represent South Carolina, where Whitney went to college, and succulents to represent the state they live in, Arizona. We enjoyed getting to party and dance to a new band out of North Carolina, The Band Punch. It was a beautiful and great day had by all!
From the first time we met Malley and Austin for their engagement session it was obvious how in love this couple is! Since we had done photos of the two of them in the summer we were so looking forward to their November wedding at Middleton Place. Austin and Malley wisely chose Holly Simpson with A Charleston Event to coordinate their wedding day. Holly worked with Malley to put together a fun, relaxing and beautiful wedding. Malley was a gorgeous bride in a dress from Gown Boutique of Charleston and flowers from Keepsakes Florist. The ceremony was filled with thoughtful words and happy tears! After the ceremony was a celebration of the couples love that included Finger Snappin Entertainment, food by Middleton Place and cake from Cakes by Kasarda. It was such a joyous day for all! The happy couple danced and laughed with family and friends and ended the night with a sparkler exit and a kiss!
Whitney and Kyle’s were married in June, and they had a beautiful Charleston wedding, with lots of southern accents and little glitz and glamor! The ceremony was held at St. Andrew’s Historical Church in Mount Pleasant and a reception following at The Mills House downtown. I loved the glitter monogram that Cakes by Kasarda incorporated on the cake! Vanity Salon had Whitney looking her best as she walked down the isle to her groom. Kyle and Whitney did not ignore the fact that they were married on Flag Day, and they had a custom flag made for the occasion that was waived as they made their big exit. We are so glad we got to be apart of Kyle and Whitney’s special day!
Susan and Ryan had the perfect wedding to share with you during this time of year! They had a Auburn University themed wedding for Ryan’s love of the university! The colors were orange and navy, and Holly at a Charleston Event did a great job adding little touches of chevron to make the event classy and southern. Country and Lace Florist did beautiful orange and navy flowers to tie into the theme. The ceremony and reception were held at Creek Club at I’on, Susan loved the idea of getting married under the mossy oaks by Hobcaw Creek. The Cake Stand added some personal touches with dog figurines featuring the couples dogs! Congrats you guys, and GO TIGERS!
Rebecca and Thomas had a traditional wedding ceremony, followed by a reception at Boone Hall Plantation in March. Bridal House of Charleston helped Rebecca to pick out an amazing two-piece off the shoulder dress. Holly with A Charleston Event coordinated the day, while Keepsake Florist did a great job with flowers and decorations. Rebecca and Thomas were met outside of St. John’s Lutheran Church with a horse and carriage from Palmetto Carriage Works. Borrowed and Blue featured Rebecca and Thomas’ wedding, and you can check it out here: http://www.borrowedandblue.com/charleston/weddings/rebecca-thomas.
Draping fabric through the trees, blue shoes, and hand picked songs Brandy wanted a wedding that was totally her! The candy table and floating lanterns were all Brandy’s creation. Holly Simpson at A Charleston Event helped Brandy bring her ideas to life. Keepsake Florist & Ooh Events provided beautiful flowers and decor for the wedding and reception. Guests had dinner provided by Crazy Dutchman Catering and a beautiful white and purple cake from The Cake Stand. The couple left in a cab from Black Cab Company after being serenaded with ribbon wands!
