Cocktails, yes please!

 Need a fun, creative way to make your cocktail hour stand out? Why not choose an amazing specialty drink for all your guests to sip on while they are waiting to celebrate YOU!

Placing a unique drink tower as a focal point does not only add elegance to your big day, but also helps take a lot of pressure off your bartenders. Having a drink pre-made for your guests to quickly grab and start sippin’ helps avoid the usual swarming of the bar right after the ceremony.

Drinks

Yes, here in the South, Sweet-Tea Vodka and Lemonade is “the go-to” obvious drink of choice. But why not mix it up? Here are a few tips on how to choose your signature drink: Choose something with a pop of color, but also that goes with your theme! Don’t over complicate your drink; keep it simple with one or two liquors and a mixer. Then top it off with some colorful fruit or garnish. Pick something that is sentimental to you—this day is all about you and your other half. Give people a taste of what makes you a unique couple. Last but not least, TRY your own drink! No one wants to serve a cocktail that isn’t tasty. Make your signature drink something all your guests, hopefully, will remember.

Arielle and Ret

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.

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.
