Erin and Jeremy are from Virginia and had a small beach wedding in March. The Tides Hotel at Folly Beach provided a beautiful background for a South Carolina beach. I love that Erin wore boat shoes, and so did her bridesmaid! Such a sweet couple we are so glad we got to spend the afternoon with you!
It may have been a little chilly, but it was a beautiful day in Charleston for Audrey and Thomas’ wedding! The day started with Audrey being pampered by Pamela Leash on make-up and Joyous Occasions on hair. Audrey had a beautiful gown from Alexia’s Bridal located in Raleigh, North Carolina. She carried with her a fur wrap for those chilly moments throughout the day. Kendra from Weddings By Leah was so wonderful to work with and she did a great job coordinating the day. In Bloom helped decorate the Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation with palmetto leaves and Helen’s Florist put together the red and white flower bouquets. Guests munched on boiled peanuts, a South Carolina favorite, from Cru Catering while dancing the night away with entertainment provided by Donnie Atwood. Audrey is a lymphoma survivor and as a gift to all of their guests, the couple made a donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
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.
We love to travel! Nathan traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for Heather and Ken’s wedding. Heather and Ken met in high school. Heather was very shy and they only went on one date. That date made a lasting impression on both of them. After high school Heather and Ken went their separate ways, getting married and having children. As life sometimes goes they both found themselves divorced. One day Heather received a friend request from Ken and she knew that this was a life changing experience. Even though both live in separate cities and have careers and children of their own, they know their love is strong enough to endure any obstacle. They chose to get married at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens surrounded by their friends and family. Their wedding was soon after Christmas, so the gardens were covered in beautiful lights. Callie from We Tie The Knots designed and coordinated the day, we loved the evergreen that decorated the place cards. TLC Rents and Event Drapery provided breathtaking event accessories to the reception. Sweet Peeps did a wonderful making a cake that looked like it was coming out of a Winter Wonderland. Flowers were by Boukates and they did a great job accenting the Day Hall of the gardens.
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.
Rachel and Tony were married in August at St. Benedict Catholic Church with a reception following at Harborside East. With help from Duvall Events, DeClare Cakes, and Gown Boutique of Charleston Rachel had a beautiful wedding day. After the ceremony, Nathan stopped downtown and got some great shots of the couple at the Cistern on College of Charleston’s campus. Harborside East is an overlooked venue in Mount Pleasant that has breathtaking views of the Cooper River Bridge. Thanks guys for letting us be apart of your 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!
Debra and Nicholas were married in January at Magnolia Plantation. And here is just another reason why couples love to get married in Charleston: it was a beautiful sunny day and warm enough for an outdoor wedding! Debra and Nicholas had a first glance and Nathan took some gorgeous photos all around Magnolia. Another beautiful wedding and wonderful couple we are happy we go to be apart of!
