Pearlann and Andrew Wedding

Pearlann and Andrew

The Island House

May 18, 2013

A little over a year ago Pearlann and Andrew made it official at the Island House on Johns Island. You can see their wedding in the current issue of Charleston Weddings Magazine as well!

Pearlann was so busy with her residency during the wedding planning that she turned over the reins for the planning to her mom.  Pearlann loves the parties her mom throws at her home, and they have a similar taste in design and style, so it seemed like a natural fit for her. Pearlann has very vibrant personality but also loves rustic and more casual feel to things. So we utilized the farm tables, burlap runners, branches with lots of color in her flowers. It really seemed to fit her and Andrew’s fun, vibrant, full of life personalities!

Their ceremony was held overlooking the water, with a rustic chuppah made of branches and mason jars with bright pink peonies on the aisle.


Cocktail Hour was held on the lawn and we created a garden party feel using rustic wood cocktail tables, umbrella tables, café lighting, and rustic wood bars.

Her  escort cards were displayed on vintage windows and in rustic wood boxes filled with split peas.

Dinner and Dancing were held under the tent with Custom branch chandeliers, additional café lighting and stone pathways leading to the bars!

The Historic Rice Mill

Cathy and Shaun

The Historic Rice Mill

December 2012

We were thrilled to help Cathy and Shaun with the design and décor and day of coordination for their December wedding last year.

It was held at the Historic Rice Mill on one of our beautiful December days.


Pink Peonies are Cathy’s favorite flower and our own Judy Johnston wiggled her nose and made them appear in December! No small feat!


A custom made hydrangea print served as the guest book.

Engaging Events fashioned a hydrangea wreath and hung on the beautiful brick wall in the entry of the space. Our Console table below held family, and couple photos.

Our sofa seating area held our grey pillows along with some monogrammed pillows Cathy had made.



 We utilized our café lighting on the patio creating that oh so sweet romantic feel:)

It was a beautiful December evening and we were so thrilled to have been a part of it!

The reception was held at the Historic William Aiken House where guests were greeted with

Black and Stormy’s and Firefly and Lemonade while they anxiously waited for the bride and groom’s arrival.

A chalkboard displayed the evening’s menu and whereabouts of each station throughout the house.
