The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation
May 31, 2012
A splendid mix of Rustic, and Vintage in Design is the best way to describe Arielle and Ret’s Wedding at Boone Hall Plantation. The front lawn of the main house was the location of the nuptials. We truly enjoyed working with this fun and sweet couple during the whole wedding planning process.
The Wrought Iron Gates served as the altar area where Arielle and Ret exchanged vows with the help of 3 pastors….Arielle’s father, and two of their pastors from their church. We decorated the gates with charleston greenery and a beautiful mix of cream and purple blossoms. the aisle was framed with our shepards hooks with moss covered containers containing stock, orchids, ranunculous, and of course a little cotton ….can’t be at Boone Hall Plantation and not have some cotton!
The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall was dressed in purple and cream, we used mahogany wood chairs and farm tables as well as wood floral containers.
Guests were greeted with Mojito’s to begin the festivities.
They danced the nite away under the stars on the Dock of the Cotton Dock to the sounds of the Travis Allison Band.

Shannon & Philip
A stunning venue, a stunning view, a stunning bride and groom……we were so thrilled to be a part of Shannon and Philip’s wedding day!
Held overlooking Charleston Harbor and the Cooper River Bridge they were married under a chuppah of white fabric and purple and white blossoms. A custom aisle runner bearing their initials, and framed with rose petals, was a beautiful walkway for the bridal party entrance. To add to the beauty of the setting we added Umbrella’s to shield guests from the sun and add to the garden feel.
Upon conclusion of the sweet ceremony, guests proceeded to the reception site via a lantern lined walkway along the harbor. They then took the stairs to the patio of Harborside East. They were greeted with a specialty cocktail and two tents with custom fabric draping and crystal chandeliers. The color palette of smoky purple, black and white was gorgeous! We added to the outdoor feel stringing cafe lighting between the two tents creating an open air cafe feel.
The inside of Harborside East has a distinct style that Shannon loved and we wanted to enhance – we embellished the existing chandeliers with orchid strands and little purple acolytes, hung custom fabric draping in the smoky purple color ….the result …a gorgeous room!
We were so thrilled to coordinate this wedding not only because it was a fabulous couple but because we are so excited that Harborside East has reopened…it is a great waterfront venue and we look forward to bringing you more Harborside East Events soon…

We have been waiting dress up the conservatory because we think it is so unique!
The purple we chose just happened to match the blooming azalea’s perfect!
