This bride’s Carolina Herrera eyelet ballgown inspired our entire wedding design… We had so much fun designing all of the details with an inspiration element that naturally lends itself to delicate and feminine notes perfect for a wedding!
We used the massive dropping branches of an old oak tree to create our “alter”… Tying orchid blooms to ribbon in the wedding’s feature color, and lanterns, it made a dreamy backdrop without being too distracting. The flower girls blanketed the aisle with thousands of white petals.
So Southern! An authentic horse and carriage greeted the couple after their “I do’s” and brought them to greet guests for cocktails.
My staff hand made these drink flags from eyelet fabric we sourced, which was also used to tailor the dinner linens.
Guests dined while overlooking the Ashley River. We used an array of different white flowers atop eyelet fabric runners down the long tables.
The place cards doubled as the favors which were contribution cards made towards he brides young cousin born with a genetic disorder. The seating cards were fashioned into magnets and as guests took those cards, there were encouraged to replace it with a little wish to the couple made on a blank magnet card.
Still one of my favorite cakes by Jim Smeal. We wondered how we could get away with “blue” icing on a cake, but it just turned out beyond lovely.
The backdrop at this venue is breathtaking on it’s own, so we didn’t need to many over the top details. We just went for cozy, warm, comfortable, and lovely.
A little retreat for guests wanting to enjoy a cocktail and conversation or a cigar away from the partying of the main reception tent.
We couldn’t believe our luck when shopping our sources for wedding design and stumbled across this eyelet lamps, couldn’t be more perfect!!!!!
A happy end to a beautiful evening! For as long as they’ve been around and as much as they’ve been done, those sparklers just make for pretty photos! All photos by Liz Banfield.
