Working with our clients in full service planing and design often means helping guide them on what to wear. This can mean the clients and families themselves, or how to inform guests on what to wear according to the type of party the clients are having. With help from local Charleston tastemaker and designer, Danielle Hosker of Mason Hosker, we’ve got a fashion show of what to wear… For the full episode head over to our YouTube channel.

Today, we’re going to help you with ideas for the perfect wedding welcome favors based on the type/location of your big day. Of course with Charleston being our backyard, we try to find ways to switch it up a bit, but still representing both the city location and the clients marrying here. For a formal destination wedding downtown, bags custom printed with the couple’s printing motif are filled with upscale goodies like champagne splits, custom Candlefish scented candles, and favorite treats of the bride and groom. Another Charleston wedding features canvas totes printed with an illustrated map of the weekend locales, locally made cheese wafers and local chocolate. Of course, providing guests with all of the pertinent information- transportation schedule, addresses of event locations, and things to do in the surrounding areas are all necessities.
Since we do do a lot of destination weddings, we like creating fun and new ways to customize the favors that greet guests upon arrival, perhaps to a location they have never been before. For this Colorado weekend, leather trimmed totes were filled with thoughtful details like wood grain S’well bottles (tote along on your hikes), “trail” mix, and kit full of sunscreen, mini O2 bottles to battle any elevation issues, and fly fishing embroidered caps.
For a Southern beach wedding, jute beach bags are stocked with printed koozies, ER kits (bandaids, tums, aspirin, sunscreen, and chapstick), lots of beach worthy snacks and magazines for guests to enjoy while soaking up the sun, and printed water bottles. Other items to include are printed beach towels, flip flips, and printed toss away sunglasses.
For this intimate destination wedding at the Montage Palmetto Bluff, the venue provided home made biscuits and locally made jam, which Lettered Olive created custom packaging for and delivered to each guest cottage the morning of the big day… Talk about leaving a lasting impression!
We are so proud and thrilled to introduce the passion project of our friend, photographer, Lucy Cuneo. We asked Lucy to talk to us about her new line of fine art floral photography where she walks us through her process and the beginning of an idea.
“I am so pleased to be able to introduce our Fine Art Flower Series; it has been absolutely amazing to realize this vision which has been stuck in my head for a number of years. I graduated with a masters in photography from SCAD in 2012 and have wanted to expand our wedding photography business to include Fine Art for quite some time; I was of course so nervous to release these and am totally overwhelmed by their reception, I cannot wait to share more.”
“As a photographer, I am particularly interested in texture and color. This series is an exploration of natural abundance; using traditional photographic film has afforded the images a greater depth, softness and sense of luxury, all which are necessary to create inviting, cloud-like images. Armed with only my cameras and a vision, I reached out to Kiana Underwood of Tulipina Designs; her appreciation of color I truly admire and she was invaluable in bringing this series to life.”
“The photographs really shine in their largest size — 36×48. The idea of the series was to fill a frame with life-size flower “heads” and have it be an unmatched sea of color and beauty. “Charlotte Rose” our first piece is a 9 foot installation which we put together our first day in San Francisco. We hammered out the series in three long days in a natural light studio there; I am so grateful to Kiana Underwood of Tulipina, and her team, for their efforts in helping to achieve these shots that bring us so much joy. It’s only the beginning, we have so much more to come!!”
