Today, we’re taking a walk down memory lane with this beautiful affair at Palmetto Bluff. This bride wanted a traditional feel for her intimate wedding. A classic monogram was created by Lettered Olive and became a staple in the wedding decor. Creams, whites, and golds were the color palette of choice. Delicate and feminine florals like catalya and phalenopsis orchids, peonies and sweet peas were lush and lovely. All of the pretty images are from Liz Banfield.
The quaint chapel on property is pretty hard to beat. And with a smaller wedding, it’s the perfect size. We’ve transformed the space in many different ways, but for this wedding, a simple carpeted aisle runner and strands of orchids dress up this ceremony.
A table covered in hand blown glass candlesticks and candles provided the decor for the caligraphied escort cards.
Each place setting was dressed with a monogrammed linen napkin,that the couple could later have for their home collection. Engraved wine tools were wrapped in custom printed paper and doubled as the place card.
Guests dined on tables lining the portico overlooking the May River. Embroidered chair covers made special seats for the bride and groom. Metallic gold embossed pockets held letterpressed menu cards…
We transformed the ballroom by laying down cream carpeting, fabric draping to keep the candle glow in, and add lamps and chandeliers on dimmers.
Jim Smeal’s cake artistry mimicked a beaded band on the bride’s dress. Take home cake bags were provided for guests wanting a sweet midnight snack- or to put it under their pillow to dream of their future spouse!
