Same sex Destination Wedding Charleston

Stephanie and Ashley’s Colorful Same Sex Wedding

If you love the South, you won’t want to miss this colorful Magnolia Plantation Wedding! Stephanie & Ashley held their destination wedding at the beautiful Magnolia Plantation in Charleston. I will venture to say this southern city produces some of the most romantic weddings on earth, and the charm of Charleston never disappoints. My goal was to design a happy, colorful day that was uniquely them. It’s quite apparent from Danielle Harris‘ snaps that these beautiful Brides were simply bursting with joy and understandable since it’s their goal to one day move there.

Southern Charm meets European Elegance

A refined European experience is exactly what you get with a RiverOaks Charleston wedding. Imagine having the beauty of Europe without leaving the states. This property is truly incredible – perfectly situated on the River, showcasing the beautiful low country backdrop. Everywhere you turn it is dripping with charm—from the live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, breathtaking sunsets cascading over the low country marsh, to the subtle hints of European architecture of the family’s home.

Specifically, we wanted to show brides a way to use black  and still have a soft, beautiful, and ethereal look, rather than formal and stuffy.

A Romantic Wedding at Laurel Hall

Kim and Alex had the most romantic  Laurel Hall wedding and is featured in the 2017 Fall issue of Wedding Day Magazine! We love seeing all of these gorgeous blush, burgundy and navy fall details in print! It was a beautiful fall day for these two and every detail came together beautifully.  Not only did Kim have impeccable taste, but we also shared a love for all things Harry Potter! Needless to say I was extra excited to have Thomas Caterers serve mini butterbeer mugs with dessert.  (more…)

An Italian Inspired Wedding At Indiana Roof Ballroom

To say I have been excited to share this wedding would be an understatement! Leslie and Jeremy had the most magical Italian-inspired Indiana Roof Ballroom wedding and these images from Nathaniel Edmunds are nothing short of spectacular!  I absolutely adore these two and loved bringing this Italian vision to life!  This design truly made you feel like you were walking through the streets of Italy as Dean Martin’s 1956 classic “That’s Amore” played in the background.  (more…)
