Mandi and Matt wanted a day were everyone had a great time partying and dancing! Harborside East is a great venue with breathtaking views of the Cooper River Bridge. The lovely Cindy at Engaging Events planned a beautiful day with purples, pinks, and yellows. Rentals from Event Works made a perfect accents to the evening. Guests dined with entrees by Good Food Catering and a delicious cake by Elain’s Events. The ceremony was performed by Christy Loftin Events and Vanity Salon had Mandi looking awesome!
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!
Hillary and Lee were married at Boone Hall Plantation on Valentine’s Day. Stephanie from Sweetgrass Events worked with Hillary on designing a day where there was a basic color scheme and the bridal party got to pick their look so they could be comfortable and ready to party! She had a beautiful jeweled flower bouquet. The couple are huge South Carolina Gamecocks fan and Cocky showed up at the reception and dancing the night away with entertainment from Other Brother Entertainment! Cru Catering had guests’ mouth watering with delicious food and Sablee Patisserie and Chocolaterie designed a beautiful three layered purple ombre cake with a Reese Peanut Butter Cup groom’s cake for the chocolate peanut butter lovers. Event Haus provided rentals for the day and Hillary looked her best thanks to Ash & Co. Bridal Hair.
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~
