Last week was such a busy week! We finially met with Katie and Bobby, winners of the Sharing the Romance wedding giveaway. The first stop of the day was a press conference at Magnolia Plantation. Here is a link to the write up in the Post and Courier.
After the press conference we walked through the ceremony and reception space and began brainstorming ideas! There will be lots of red, gold and camelia’s! The next two days were filled meeting with all of the wonderful vendors we will be working with, we had a very long to do list for Katie and Bobby! In their two day visit to Charleston, they met with Sarah Black, owner of Fabulous Frocks to find a dress, Ice Box to beging looking at bar options, ginger apple mojito specialty drink? YUM!
Katie and Bobby also had their engagement session with Mel Bell, from Richard Bell Photography, discussed ceremony flowers with Gayla from Tiger Lily Florist, and met with Elaine Mincey about their cakes (there will be a trio of cakes!). Finially, we met with Micheal from Mosiac Catering to create a lowcountry menu of shrimp & grits and BBQ before ending the two days of meeting with Scottie Cline about inviations. It was a busy two days and there is still a lot to do! We will keep everyone posted!
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.
Congratulations Megan and Evan- we are so excited for you!
Old Exchange Building
April 14, 2012
Want a wedding that is a Charleston Wedding through and through? Well take a look at Elizabeth and Chris’ wedding below- We were excited to be a part of their Wedding Planning process- we worked together for about 18 months planning this big day and enjoyed every minute!
They held their ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church- it is such a historic and beautiful church located on Hasell Street- we don’t have photo’s of the church yet but will share them with you when we do!
They followed that up with a reception at the Old Exchange Building….this building has such history, the declaration of independence was ratified in South Carolina in this building; George Washington attended balls at this building, and it also has a dungeon where pirates were kept. A must see if you visit Charleston!
Guest were greeted by costumed guides that offered tours of the dungeon during the first 1/2hour of cocktails; below you can see photo’s of the first floor room in the hall where we had hors d’oeuvres and a specialty drink of Sweet Tea Vodka and Lemonade- and finished off with a personalized tag and ribbon band – Tag was designed by Studio R Designs.
We were fortunate to have a Jim Smeal designed wedding cake as the dessert that evening- Jim incoporated into the design the design of the damask linens and their new “B” monogram- Thank you Jim for a gorgeous and delicious cake!
We “decked the hall” with beautiful blue damask linens, black chivari chairs, white floral containers filled with white hydrangea, blue delphinium, white calla lillies, and white dendrobium orchids. We also added beautiful charleston greenery and floral sprays to the existing mantles.
We want to thank Elizabeth and Chris and their families for allowing us to be a part of their special weekend- The weather was great, the food was fantastic, and everyone enjoyed this true Charleston experience!
Many thanks to our vendors: Robbin Knight Photography for these images, Studio R Designs, Eventworks, Jim Smeal, Mosaic Catering, Soulfish, and the Old Exchange for helping us created a fabulous event for these great families!
Cooper River Room
November 5, 2011
Caitlin and Chris were married at St. Andrew’s Church in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant.
They followed up the ceremony with a reception at the Cooper River Room at Mt. Pleasant’s waterfront park. This is a really neat venue and we were excited to be designing an event there. The view is spectacular and the venue is unique and flexible in its use.
In Lieu of a guest book, Caitlin chose to have her guests “Leaf” their signature on their new family tree!
Guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn, followed by dinner in the Cooper River Room- Caitlin’s color scheme was so pretty for fall, charcoal grey and apple/pear green and ivory. We used beautiful button linens from Connie Duglin Linens in ivory accenting them with charcoal grey runners and then Judy our florist helped finish it off with bouquets of green hydrangae.
Guests enjoyed a “Beer Rita” as the specialty drink- yes you guessed it- a margherita meets beer- created by the fabulous crew at Mosaic Catering.
Guests dance the night away to the sounds of Soulfish, in a tent bedazzled with Engaging Events chandeliers, and comfy cozy lounge furniture.
Caitlin, Chris, and all their family and friends had a great time…we wish them many happy years to come….
