A Soccer Star’s Halloween Wedding

Tara Guerard Soiree by Liz Banfield

Flashing back this Friday to US Women’s Soccer Team alumni, Kate Sobrero’s Halloween wedding.  This intimate affair took place at Hibernian Hall, a historic venue in downtown Charleston, SC. Since it was over Halloween weekend, we wanted to offer a fun yet still sophisticated and special evening for the guests. Escort cards for dinner were placed on individual mini pumpkins, and surrounded what would later become a take home candy bar.

Guests dined at 12 top rectangle tables, I like the set up of those as it makes it much easier than round tables to fit more into a space. And much easier for guests to enjoy conversations with multiple people.  Candles were everywhere filling the room with warmth.

The tables were dressed in deep red crushed velvet linens with simple pillar candles, and rustic wrought iron candlesticks topped with rose balls of Black Magic and Gospel Dark red roses.  The glow bouncing off the deep hues made you want to sidle up with your glass of red wine and settle in.

Since calla lilies were the main flower used for the wedding party, a burgundy calla lily adorned each guests place setting.

Again, dark burgundy calla lilies filled the bridesmaids’ bouquets and were perfect against their black dresses.

Calla lilies provided a deep red pop of color to the all white wedding cake.

Fragrant seeded eucalyptus paired with the dark red roses gave a festive look to the horse drawn carriage the bride and groom took from their church ceremony to the reception venue.
