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…
Many thanks to our vendors:

Charlotte and Ty
Waterfront Park and the Battery
Over Thanksgiving Charlotte and Ty had their engagement session with Taylor Stewart!
Charlotte and Ty’s wedding will be at the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island.
They wanted to incorporate Charleston into their wedding so they chose downtown for their
engagement session photo’s!
Engagement sessions are a great way to get to know your photographer better,
ensuring you are relaxed, comfortable and even more photogenic on your wedding day.
It also allows you to preview photo’s of yourself and fiance and your photographer’s style -
allowing you to give your photographer clear direction on the types of images you like best.
These pictures are amazing and adorable! Can’t wait for the big day in April!
Chloe and Preston
August 7, 2010
We were so happy to be a part of Chloe and Preston’s Wedding…they are a super couple
and their wedding had so many wonderful unique touches!
Their ceremony took place under the big beautiful oak at the Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation -
overlooking the Ashley River. We utilized Charleston Gates covered with spanish moss, greenery, dendrobium orchids
and planter boxes filled with cream hydrangae as the backdrop for their ceremony.
Their guests enjoyed the ceremony from the authentic Church Pews,
shaded with umbrella’s and decorated with mason jars filled with flowers.
The Inside of the Carriage House featured the chandeliers decorated with spanish moss, greenery and white blossoms.
We utilized soft aqua blue color linen with an apple green linen and natural wood chairs for a soft and pretty atmosphere.
Engaging Events added to the look by draping fabric over the doorways,
and utilizing sweet grass baskets as containers for her wildflowers.
Chloe’s dress and the location were a big inspiration in much of the design.
Studio R created save the dates, invitations and these great bands and seals for her specialty drink
utilizing the lace pattern from her dress and the magnolia blossom to represent the location.
Elaine Mincey utilized the lace design in the pattern you see on the cake, and then topped it with one of her signature magnolias.
Many thanks to all the vendors who made this nite so magical for Chloe and Preston, and to Taylor Stewart and MCG Photography for the great images!
