A Year in Ceremonies

2018 was a big year in weddings for us… Even though we only do a handful per year, we found ourselves in some familiar and different locations.  Working with some of our tried and true and new vendors, and working hard to come up with fresh and custom details for all of our clients. I’d say we had a pretty fantastic year. So, here is a look back as we recap some of our favorite ceremonies from last year.  Above, we were in Palm Beach, Florida for a stunner of a wedding at the Breakers.  But, the ceremony was at the groom’s family church locally, which I loved because it seems unexpected for Palm Beach- love the pale blue exterior, perfect for a wedding’s something blue.

Our last wedding of the year found us in our own backyard of Charleston, at historic Grace Episcopal Church. Lots of gothic and historic architectural details make for some pretty photo backdrops. photo by Lauren Bailey Photo

A new venue for us this year was the gorgeous Barnsley Gardens resort outside of Atlanta, GA. The sweeping grounds had many different pretty spots for a ceremony, so one surrounded by greenery and old oak trees was where we landed. An airy sailcloth tent was perfect acting as a large “sunbrella” for guests, but a light unexpected shower rolled thru also.

Again, back in Charleston, at one of our all time favorite spots, the Huguenot Church, an intimate ceremony was adorned with very natural and delicate pieces. The lighting in this church is always so romantic.

This was a fun wedding for us in Kansas City, Missouri.  One, because we had done a wedding previously for the bride’s brother and loved getting to work with the family again. Two, because the venue was so different than what we do here, and we were working with so many new people. The church, however, did feel sweet and familiar since it was full of so many historic notes.

I would say for Charleston, this venue (Runnymede Plantation) is my most favorite for designing weddings.  It’s a blank slate with a gorgeous natural backdrop.  It can host a large amount of people, and it’s easy getting in and out… For this ceremony, we chose a shaded area under historic old Oak Trees overlooking the river banks, and created an aisle by laying down a seagrass runner and draping an airy ceiling in fabric.

Here’s to another year of amazing moments in 2019!
