Excited to finally be able to share this sweet feature in the new Flower Mag… Our friend, Lela Rose was in town for Charleston Wedding Week, and we just had to throw a celebration to welcome her to Charleston.

In honor of the release of her new entertaining book, we hosted a Bloodys, Biscuits, and Book Signing Brunch. Biscuits from Callie’s Charleston Biscuits and a full scale bloody mary bar were perfect for the Friday a.m. fete… stay tuned for more details on a future blog post. Thank you to Lucy Cuneo for all of the photos!

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!!”

We had so much fun at New York Bridal Week earlier this month and were thrilled to partner with Charleston Weddings magazine on a fabulous event at Ramscale Studio in the West Village. We hosted all of our industry friends to celebrate the amazing fashion coming down the runways at Pier 94, but the most exciting fashion moment was joining in the launch of Lula Kate designer Katherine McDonald’s signature line of wedding dresses. I also loved seeing two former Soirée brides that live in the city and stopped by to catch up. Aren’t they so cute in the photo above?! We’re happy to share some photos of the event with you today, and must thank Melissa Bigner of Charleston Weddings, Ramscale Studio for hosting us, and of course Lucy Cuneo for these stunning images!


Let’s start with the dresses shall we? Seriously stunning! Katherine showcased them throughout the venue for an absolutely beautiful display.


Loving the new issue of Charleston Weddings magazine that features one of our Soirée brides Kelly Broad. Make sure to grab a copy, and see a sneak peek here. And how amazing is the view from Ramscale?!


We made sure ever guest had a gift bag (a Soirée signature) and loved these with a map of Charleston on the front to represent all of our Charleston friends in town for the event. We also had copies of our Weddings book there for guests to take home.


Everyone loved the cocktails made with mixers from Charleston-based Bittermilk… with packing that beautiful, who could resist?! All of these elements made for a stunning event, and we loved spending the evening with some of our favorite people. We’re already counting down until next year!
