Venice & Lucio’s Creative Garden Wedding

Today’s wedding is one that I just love!  Venice and Lucio met in college and their wedding shows off 100% their personalities and why they are so perfect for one another.  Starting with a love for all things Bolt, they had their Bolt stuffed animals act as ring bearers for the ceremony.  Even better, Venice’s bouquet was made out of sheet music from Frozen.  Venice and Lucio sang there vows to one another, yes they are multi-talented because they also had a choreographed dance for the first dance! We are so glad we got to know them, and what a great day to be apart of!  This wedding was also published on Poptastic Bride, and you can check it out here! mao-0066 mao-0149 mao-0208 mao-0263 mao-0444 mao-0452 mao-0667 mao-0920 mao-0931 mao-0944 mao-0950 mao-1029

Jamye and David’s All Things Southern Wedding

Jamye and David met in 2002 and when they got engaged and started wedding planning they wanted an all southern wedding.  Magnolia Plantation and Garden was the perfect venue for the couple to show of there southern roots.  Keri and Elizabeth of Simply Weddings helped to pull off the day as the day of coordinator.  Tiger Lily Florist and Event Works did a great job of adding burlap, seersucker, hydrangeas, and mason jars to show off the Plantation.  Sticky Fingers provided a boiled peanut bar, and how more southern can you get?  We were so happy to be apart of Jayme and Davids special and we wish them many years of happiness.    Jayme and David’s wedding was also recently published on Borrowed and Blue, check it out here:

Jolie and Andrew at Lowndes Grove

Jolie and Andrew were married at Lowndes Grove, and what a gorgeous day it was.  Jolie and Andrew are from Colorado and had family coming to Charleston from Alabama, Texas, and Colorado.  Andrew is a champion ferrier and Jolie is currently in pursuit of becoming a pharmacists.  Jolie wanted a simple rustic wedding with an awesome party to celebrate afterwards.  Patrick Properties did a wonderful job creating this wonderful event, Snyder Event Rentals and Technical Event Company helped make Lowndes Grove a beautiful outdoor venue.  Jolie and Andrew left the party on a rickshaw while guests waved sparklers.  What a fun couple, we hope they come back to visit us soon!
