This week we had the pleasure of visiting The Mansion at the Woodlands. The Woodlands is on its way to becoming Charleston’s only exclusive, luxury special event venue. The Mansion at the Woodlands is an eighteen bedroom, 1906 Greek revival which sits on eleven acres of parkland grounds beneath towering pines, magnolias and moss draped oaks in historic Summerville.
The concept of the Woodlands as a luxury special event venue is unique to any other venue in the Charleston area. Imagine having your own private estate for your wedding weekend, pretty fabulous right?! With guest rooms uniquely decorated, a pool, spa and a restaurant kitchen who needs to leave!
Now we just need to find a bride to host a wedding weekend at The Woodlands and give her guests an experience they will never forget!
Zari and Drew, one of our fall couples, just had their engagement session with Carmen Ash!
The photo’s came out amazing!
We can’t wait to see these two get hitched this September at the Historic Rice Mill!

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….
