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!

Kristina and Bryan met while attending the University of Rhode Island and had an activity filled wedding!  Kristina wanted to keep the day to a natural feel, and make sure all guest had a great time.  They had bocci ball, corn hole, cigar rolling, a smores station, and of course, lots of dancing!  The wedding was at Magnolia Plantation, such a beautiful venue all year around, and Beth from Wildflowers Inc did such a great job coordinating, designing, and providing the flowers for the day.  The carriage house looked whimsical with the greens hanging from the ceiling and the beautiful lights that were hung.

Audrey and Thomas

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.

Tricia and Jake

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.

Heather and Ken

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.
