Marcella and Ward

Marcella and Ward made it a point to blend the Indonesian heritage of the bride with the Carolina traditions of the groom. To accomplish this, they combined the beauty of South Carolina with Indonesian cultural influences! To kick off the wedding festivities they started off with an Oyster Roast welcome dinner overlooking the marshes of Kiawah Island. The following day was the ceremony, which was held at the cathedral of St. John the Baptist in downtown Charleston and the reception at Osprey Point Golf Club back on Kiawah Island. Marcella and Ward were inspired to incorporate a feather theme, from the various types of feathers on the bride’s wedding dress – custom designed by Maya Ratih Couture, to feathers on the cake- done by The Cake Stand.  Indonesian elements included a pre-reception tea ceremony, custom wedding toppers of the couple in traditional Indonesian garb, and kopi luwak (a rare civet coffee) for the guests! It was a gorgeous day with so many thoughtful, personal touches!

Tori & Nick

Tori and Nick were married at Magnolia Plantation and had lots of details that to remind the bride and groom of their grandmothers.  Each of their grandmothers picked cotton as a child and so Tori and Nick wanted to incorporate cotton into the the day.  Tori’s bridals were taken right in the middle of perfect azalea season, and Nathan captured some amazing pictures that day. And the groom is a huge golf fan, so it was fun to add a little club action to the mix! We enjoyed getting to work with Dee Barnes who did an excellent job designing, coordinating, and decorating the event. Tori and Nick had such a sweet day and I am sure her grandmother was looking down with a huge smile!
