RiverOaks Charleston Wedding

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.

Inspired by the French Blue painted window shutters of the RiverOaks home, we incorporated this timeless hue along with shades of blue, lavender, cloud grey, and taupe to create a fresh color palette. For an effortlessly elegant ceremony, we dressed the aisle with simple gatherings of delphiniums and finished with a floral semi circle statement piece.

For the reception, we kept with the same palette but worked to create an additional layer of intimacy and formality. As a result, we got a beautiful al fresco dinner setting under those large oak trees! 💙 Continuing with the watercolor palette, Autumn chose multi- hued candles in all heights paired with stems of delphinium and a runner of loose delphinium blooms. It is so rare to work with a single flower throughout an event and this RiverOaks Charleston wedding was truly a dream come true.
