Jenna’s smile and giggles are contagious, it is hard not to look at these pictures and not smile and giggle yourself! These two are so adorable together! Mell is so excited for their upcoming wedding at Stella Maris Catholic Church and Alhambra Hall. Here are some pictures from their engagement session at the Pit Street Pier, a favorite place for Jenna and Joshua and also where Joshua proposed!
Since Tricia and Jake got married on New Year’s Eve, they wanted to combine the simplicity of white flowers and neutral colors with regal deep navy blue colors and a pinch of gold to accent the joyous occasion. Looking back at photos, they wanted it to have a timeless appeal. The couple were working a Gopher hockey game together and met in the press box at Mariucci Arena. After their intimate wedding to celebrate they went to a South Carolina Stingrays hockey game before the New Year’s celebrations began. Tricia and Jake chose to elope at Magnolia Plantation because they are from Minnesota and wanted a small but romantic ceremony in a warmer climate! The most important thing to Tricia was that they create beautiful memories that they can cherish for the rest of their life together. Country Lace and Florist did a wonderful job with her navy and white bouquet and Awesome Designs & Weddings married the special couple.
Colleen and Freddy met in Music Appreciation Class where Freddy liked to copy all of Colleen’s work! They like to play a good ole fashion game of Gin Rummy and love popcorn (we can’t wait to see the popcorn bar at the wedding!)! We had a chance to get to know them better at their engagement shoot at Magnolia Plantation and we are looking forward to their wedding!
Mell had a wonderful afternoon downtown getting to know Mandi and Matt. It was love at first site when Mell noticed they were all wearing flip flops and got to share their love for the shoe. They started off with drinks at Leaf and then had a beautiful afternoon downtown to capture in their engagement excitement! We are looking forward to this sweet couples wedding and to see what Cindy at Engaging Events has put together for them!
Both Ryan and Tori grew up in Greenville, and attended the University of South Carolina. However, they did not meet until they both moved to Charleston and were introduced by mutual friends. Tori wanted an outdoor plantation wedding, and Magnolia Plantation was the perfect venue for her. Pure Luxe did a wonderful job coordinating the event, and Snyder Events provided all the rentals. Carrie at Paper Dolls did an amazing job to make sure Tori looked stunning on her special day. The bride and groom had white umbrellas set out around outside so guests could keep cool in the July sun. Congratulations Tori and Ryan! Tori and Ryan’s wedding was also featured in Savvy Deets Bridal and you can check it out here!
Laurette and Bob wanted a fun, laid back wedding ceremony and a huge party afterwards to celebrate their love! Boone Hall Plantation was the setting for this special day and the wonderful staff from MOSAIC did a fantastic job designing, coordinating, and catering the event. I love the outdoor tea party feel that the day had. Blue Plant Green Events provided beautiful colorful flowers, and as an added bonus, Coastal Crust was there so guests could munch on pizza throughout the night. Congrats Laurette and Bob, we are so glad we got to be apart of your fun day~
Claire and Ryan had a destination wedding at Magnolia Plantation in June, and nothing could rain on their parade. Cru Catering showcased many southern favorite such as shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles. Claire and Ryan wanted to keep with the natural beauty of Magnolia and keep the color scheme simple with tans, creams, and pale yellows. JW Weddings did a great job putting together the floral arrangements, and Lashes & Lace made the bride stunning on her day! Congrats to Claire and Ryan!
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!
Erin and Joe are such a fun couple, and you can tell by all the adorable pictures they take together! The two got married in June at Summerall Chapel with a reception following at the Historic Rice Mill. Tiger Lily florist made beautiful white bouquets that really popped against the black bridesmaids dresses. I also love that the grooms and groomsmen boutonnieres were shot gun shells. Ashley at Ashley and Co Bridal Hair and White on Daniel Island made sure Erin looked beautiful on her special day. Wishing you two many years of happiness, so glad we got to be apart of your day! Erin and Joe were also featured on On The Go Bride and you can check it out here!
Zabrina and James met while working together and they got married at Magnolia Plantation. Z wanted a chic, country, vintage style wedding. She had wine barrels to hold the programs for the ceremony, and also wine barrels topped with an old barn door for the dessert table. They had a mixture of mahogany farm tables with lace runners and round tables on the sides with ivory damask linens. Lanterns lined the Carriage House along the farm tables. Pretty Petals did a great job with the flowers for the ceremony, adding some succulents to the mix for a variety of colors. The couple rented a 1957 school bus from Lowcountry Valet & Shuttle for their leave. Congratulations to Z and James, we wish you many years of happiness!
