So exquisite, so elegant, so lovely!!!!  Andrea and I met several years back- ironically enough, she was my Carolina Bride representative when we were just starting out – we became friends through the years of working together.  So of course when she told me she was getting married, I was beyond thrilled and wanted to help in any way I could!

Andrea and Johnathan’s ideas were amazing- they picked the sophisticated colors of cerise, ivory and  taupe accented by gold.  The combination was show stopping. They had all sorts of unique elements to make their wedding so exciting and fun as well as very moving!

The late afternoon ceremony was held out on the putting green at Columbia Country Club.  The bridal party processed to the soft sounds of a harp and the absolutely stunning bride was escorted down the aisle by her brother.  Andrea was beyond full of emotion- it was all I could do not to cry while getting her ready for her entrance-

After the ceremony- guests enjoyed cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres on the porch.  Wine was set up in a unique self serve display that was just lovely.  Dinner was served in the lavishly set main ballroom- from the cerise chair ties to the menu seating cards – no detail was overlooked.

The family table centerpiece, cake flowers and bouquets/bouts. were created by Southern Stems – gorgeous work as always!

Photography by the very gifted Clark Berry– again, always a pleasure working with them!

The yummy white chocolate wedding cake with raspberry filling was created by Angi Anderson.  Great sounds were provided by the Coastal Breeze Band.
