Today’s feature is a blast from the past summertime wedding at Drayton Hall Plantation featuring gerber daisy designs. Our bride,  a well known Charleston interior designer, was  a great collaborator and serious about her guests having fun. The result was a playful but classic Southern wedding under the Oaks. Thank you to Liz Banfield for the photos.

A simple gerber motif gave the classic invitations and ceremony programs by Lettered Olive a hint of sweetness…

Liz was able to capture some amazing portraits of the bride inside the historic plantation house. We went with brights and colors for the wedding party, so traditional white fit the perfect bill for this bride’s bouquet.

The wedding ceremony was held under one of the oldest live oaks on the property with a gospel choir providing some hymns during. We lined the aisle with varying shades of gerber daisy heads for a subtle pop of color. And, for the “reserved” rows of family, wide satin ribbon tied around the chair backs also had a gerber daisy detail.

Afterwards, a tented reception was held along the riverbanks.  Seating vignettes were placed throughout so as guests tried the varying food stations, they could grab a quick seat to eat.

A tired cake separated by rows of gerber daisies found a pretty home inside a canopied display… We like to take bridesmaids’ bouquets and place them around the cake table also to add some floral elements.

Gerber daisy details throughout the wedding included candles inside tall glass cylinders with small gerbers glued along the top, lampshades with real daisies attached, floral tie backs covering all of the tent legs, and pretty floral “tree” centerpieces.

Once the dancing began, the tent was turned into a sultry late night lounge with a packed dance floor!
