White Point Gardens and Harborside East

 Leigh and Patrick

White Point Gardens and Harborside East

March 24, 2013

We were so thrilled to help Leigh and Pat tie the knot at their wedding this spring…I had the pleasure of helping with Pat’s sisters wedding several years ago so it was so fun to work with his family again. Leigh and Patrick are bartenders at two local hot spots The Brick and Mac’s Place. Their priority for the reception was to have it be a great party that EVERYONE enjoyed. Their goal with the ceremony was to keep it intimate with just their immediate family and closest friends. Leigh had always dreamed of being married at the Gazebo at White Point Gardens and even though the weather that day was pretty wet early in the day, we got a break in the weather to make it happen for her that afternoon. Here she is looking stunning on the way to the ceremony…

The reception was held at Harborside East- a venue that is super unique in the architecture and perfect for a great party. Leigh chose a color palette of charcoal grey, coral, green and cream and it was really lovely in the venue and perfect for the start of spring!

Guests were greeted with… a cocktail of course!  – a “his” and “her” favorite!

The wedding cake brought together the organic look Leigh loves with the color palette she had chosen.

Leigh wanted to make sure the Existing HUGE Bar at the Harborside looked awesome so we added branches and orchids to each and every support pole at the bar- and it looked FABULOUS!


Outside a romantic and Comfy Lounge area was dressed up with some of our fantastic fabric draping with sheer coral fabric, crystal chandelier, and our Vintage seating area.



The venue has a HUGE Patio – Half of it is covered and Half is open air…while our original plan was to use both…. the rain of the day changed it up for us… so we kept it all under the existing covered portion and the tent we added. We added cool café lighting, some Tree’s and draping and VOILA…transformed into a comfy, romantic hang out that EVERYONE  enjoyed!


Leigh and Patrick hired the Travis Allison Band to make the tunes, Charleston Party Booth to have the playful fun of a photo booth, and for the finishing touch we had a Cigar Roller from the Cigar Row join us later in the evening….

What a great time was had by all- Including the Engaging Events team! We loved planning with Leigh and Pat and are so thrilled they had such a fabulous day!

The Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation

Our Congratulations to Amy and Jason on their spring nuptials at the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation! They had our first picture perfect day of the season- blue sky, 75 degrees and sunny! Doesn’t get any better than that!

They were married under the big beautiful Oak tree at the Carriage House.

Charleston Gates were the backdrop for their ceremony (All Occasions Party Rental) and our own Judy Johnston embellished them with coral spray roses and smilax. The aisle was lined with Engaging Events Shepards hooks and Judy hung mason jars with hydrangea and spray roses.


The Scratch Pad created their save the dates and the wedding programs…many thanks to them!


Guests enjoyed a social time pre-ceremony with umbrella tables, ice water, ice tea and champagne.


The color palette of teal, coral  and green was gorgeous in the rustic wood of the carriage house! Amy was in love with Mercury Glass so we were sure to incorporate some of her collection for the floral arrangements and other accents. A tent with white liner over the center of the patio was the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the wonderful view and weather that day!


Amy and Jason had purchased vintage light up letters for their home and they were the perfect back drop for their DJ that evening…love those letters!  The DJ did a fabulous job (DJ Natty Heavy) rocking the party until late into the evening…it was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple…check out Scrapbook page soon for more images . Many thanks to Mosaic catering, Magnolia Plantation, All Occasions, Snyder Party Rentals and our own Judy Johnston for a fabulous evening!

Cassidy and Trevor

Cassique on Kiawah Island

June 2, 2012

If  you love color, geometric patterns, and a bit of a modern flair in design you will love Cassidy and Trevors Wedding.

We were thrilled to be the wedding planners for their special weekend. They kicked off the weekend with a welcome dinner at The Sandcastle on Kiawah Island.

The Wedding Ceremony took place on the lawn of the Cassique Clubhouse with a beautiful view of the course and the lagoon. We had a picture perfect day- blue skies, and comfortable temperatures. The ceremony took place in front of an arbor built by the bride’s father. Our floral designer – Judy Johnston finished it off with beautiful colorful blossoms and Charleston Greenery.


Guests and bridal party enjoyed cocktails and hors d’eouvres in the beautiful Garden leading to the reception tent.

 The Reception Tent was fashioned with grey linens and turqoise accents including the chevron patterned turquoise fabric as throw pillows, pendant shade covers, and runners. A custom monogram created by Studio R Designs was used to create a custom gobo that spot-lit above the band all evening.

The cake was designed by Elaine Mincey-the inspiration for the design was taken from the Bride’s wedding invitation which contained several geometric patterns.

Thank you to Cassidy and Trevor for including us in their fabulous wedding weekend!

Megan and Evan

Legare Waring House

May 25, 2012

What a way to kick off the Memorial Day Weekend…we began it at the Legare Waring House on Friday, May 25th. The couple- Megan and Evan- are so sweet and so in love…we were so thrilled to be a part of their special day!

They were married under the avenue of oaks and in all honesty couldn’t have asked for a better day- the sun was filtering through the tree’s throughout the ceremony …it was just stunning.

Megan’s color palette of purples and whites came together beautifully…..

 The aisle was framed with our white shepards hooks with hanging floral vases, the couple was married on an elevated platform and framed off with these beautiful sprays of purple and white gladiola’s. The Wedding programs were letterpressed by the super talented Heather Forsythe of Sixpence Press.

The Tent was lined in white, with our crystal chandeliers and perimeter lighting on dimmers for adjustment throughout the evening.

Centerpieces of white flowers on eggplant linens was stunning…to add to the design our florist-added pearls to each of the floral containers.

A White Plantation Bar served as the drink station where a wonderful variety of non alcoholic drinks were offered in our drink dispensers.


The bar and these umbrella tables overlooked the lagoon…..where alligators are often seen:)

The inside of the Legare Waring housed photographs of the bride and grooms parents, along with the cake.

The Cake was designed by Elaine Mincey and was inspired by Megan’s gown.

It was a gorgeous day, a gorgeous wedding and a great party! Our thanks to our vendors:

Julie Ann and Gabrielle from Legare Waring House, Mosaic for the fabulous food, Elaine Mincey for the stunning cake, Sixpence Press for the custom signage and wedding programs, Atlantic Tent’s for the beautiful tent, BBJ Linen, Hal from Lee Edwards Entertainment, and our wonderful floral team headed by Judy Johnston.
