We have some of the most gorgeous brides, don’t we? We love doing this recap post every year and thanking our brides for an amazing year… Ready to hit the ground running in 2020 with two weddings already in January! Keyton got married in her summer vacation destination of Watercolor, Florida… She wore a strapless ballgown by Monique Lhuillier.

Lauren was our fun loving, have a great time, and dance all night long bride. Married here in Charleston, she is a SC girl and we loved creating a spring time formal fete for her at Runnymede. Lauren’s mermaid sheath is by Oscar de la Renta.

Hannah and Tyler were married over the summer at “the end of the world”- Montauk, New York. Our bride elevated the typical beach wedding look with a lace covered off the shoulder gown by Anna Maier.

Caroline and her fiancé chose an urbane getaway upstate NY getaway- Troutbeck  for their wedding weekend. For the most part, the guests all stayed on site and were able to spend the entire weekend enjoying the amenities and events. Her simple but chic sheath is by Carolina Herrera.

Kimbrell married at her family home in upstate, SC… we were lucky enough to initially get to know her while planning her older sister’s wedding several years ago. Although, we had an unexpected tropical storm blow through that day, the rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and everyone partied like it was a lovely day. Kimbrell chose a gorgeous lace Mira Zwellinger gown that couldn’t have been more perfect on her.

To marry her love overlooking the sea where she spent so much time with her family growing up (and having lost her beloved father) was of the utmost importance to our bride, which is why she chose Round Hill in Jamaica.  She chose a Cucculelli Shaheen gown with a cape that was beyond fabulous…

2019 was full of new experiences and locations.. We were thrilled to work with new backdrops and forge relationships with new vendors. Full steam ahead into 2020! Above, our first wedding of the year took us to “30A”, Watercolor, Florida. Getting it’s name from the colors seen in the water and sky the beautiful beaches there, our bride’s family grew up vacationing there. We tented the town square for the ceremony and reception, but the family opened their door for a Thursday night rehearsal dinner.

Our only local wedding this year had us at Runnymede. One of our favorite blank slates to create whatever our client envisions; its also able to accommodate the largest of groups.

Starting off the summer at Gurney’s in Montauk provided an amazing view of the ocean (and of course, one of the quintessential afternoon showers), and a perfect casual sophistication Montauk is known for.

Back in New York a couple of weeks later, but in an upstate country retreat called Troutbeck. Perfect as a postcard, the weather, the scenery, and with almost all of the guests being able to stay onsite, a fun weekend for this wedding.

Fall in Greenville, SC can be particularly lovely… leaves changing colors, usually a slight nip in the air, or a tropical storm???? Yes, this year, for our wedding that was NOT in Charleston, but in Greenville, we had a tropical storm. Our clients took it in stride and we made sure it didn’t dampen the day. Plus, our clients were so happy and in love, nothing was going to rain on their parade.

We celebrated our last wedding of the year in Jamaica. Our bride spent her childhood vacationing at Round Hill, so it was the perfect spot for the mostly NY and London guest list to warm up with winter setting in… We loved getting to work with a different beach backdrop, and all of the lush surroundings made for amazing decor foraging.

Oh, I was so happy to see this highlight video hit my inbox. We did this wedding about a month ago, and had a random tropical storm pop up on us going into the set up and wedding weekend. This was our second wedding with this family, so luckily we had a wonderful trusting relationship, and knew that we would make sure the rain didn’t “dampen” the day, but still… Now, as I watch this, I can truly see how happy they were and how much love was in the room. Congrats Bruce and Kimberly.
