Whitney and Christopher

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!

Hillary and Lee

Hillary and Lee were married at Boone Hall Plantation on Valentine’s Day. Stephanie from Sweetgrass Events worked with Hillary on designing a day where there was a basic color scheme and the bridal party got to pick their look so they could be comfortable and ready to party!  She had a beautiful jeweled flower bouquet. The couple are huge South Carolina Gamecocks fan and Cocky showed up at the reception and dancing the night away with entertainment from Other Brother Entertainment!  Cru Catering had guests’ mouth watering with delicious food and Sablee Patisserie and Chocolaterie designed a beautiful three layered purple ombre cake with a Reese Peanut Butter Cup groom’s cake for the chocolate peanut butter lovers.  Event Haus provided rentals for the day and Hillary looked her best thanks to Ash & Co.

Elizabeth and Sri

Elizabeth and Sri love dark, deep colors and cooler weather so when the two became engaged they knew they wanted to get married in December.   Elizabeth is from Charleston and wanted to show off her southern style while also incorporating Sri’s Indian culture.   They had a beautiful gold mandap for their ceremony with red and white roses.  They had a two day celebration starting with a ceremony at The Rice Mill Building downtown.  It was important for Elizabeth and Sri to have support from their families which is why they wanted a small  intimate ceremony.  The next day there was a huge party at the The Country Club of Charleston, with decorations by Frampton Flowers, which held a special place in Elizabeth’s heart because it is where her grandparents would take her as a child.

Meredith and Bryan

Meredith and Bryan met through mutual friends, and they wanted a wedding to truly show of their southern roots.  Bryan is a carpenter and Meredith is a chief so they wanted to make sure there was a lot of wood accents as well as good southern food at the wedding.  Bryan even constructed the cake stands with wood from the family farm, how awesome and unique!  B. Gourmet Catering coordinated this beautiful day, and also catered the event with dishes like fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits.  Rentals were provided by Event Works.  Congratulations Meredith and Bryan!!  Meredith and Bryan were also featured on Aisle Ready, and you can check them out here! richardbellphotography richardbellphotography-2 richardbellphotography-3 richardbellphotography-4 richardbellphotography-5 richardbellphotography-6 richardbellphotography-7 richardbellphotography-8 richardbellphotography-9 richardbellphotography-10
