Kira and Ryan came to us all the way from beautiful Southern California!  They had looked literally all over the world for the absolute perfect location to marry each other…and they finally found it in Charleston, South Carolina.  As Kira states… they were “swept away by the beauty of Charleston”.  When we met, they expressed that it was very important for them to have flowers that create an English garden style look.  They really  wanted  a Victorian look and feel…so we went on the hunt for the perfect location!  During the process, they came across the amazing Wentworth Mansion ~ and needless to say…it was PERFECT! 

The ceremony took place at The Wenthworth Mansion  at 1pm and the reception began at 6pm.  The garden was a perfect size for the 65 guests – Gayla at Tiger Lily Florist  turned a classic wrought iron arch into a floral ‘gate’ that looked like it grew straight out of the ground!!!  It was so intimate and romantic. 

Some photos were taken by us but the really fabulous ones were taken by Karyn Iserman ~thank you Karyn!

 

Guests were given fabulous bags with goodies to let them know about Charleston!

The time that was built-in after the ceremony allowed all of the out-of-town guests to explore the beautiful city of Charleston.  It also allowed Kira and Ryan  a fabulous block of time to travel through this historic city and get the most amazing photos with the unbelievably talented Karyn Iserman.

 

The reception was held at Society Hall.  The flower arrangements on each table carried through the English garden feel. They had little cards on each table that had a love quote from famous people and fragrant sprigs of rosemary at each place setting with a thank you to each guest dressed the table beautifully. They added personal touches to each detail of the wedding.

 Cru Catering did the most amazing job on this fabulous dinner…guest were greeted as they entered Society Hall with a new Charleston (and Southern) favorite…sweet tea vodka and lemonade….the Arnold Palmer with a twist!

 

The couple had a ‘late night’ crepe station that perfectly hit the spot!

The beautiful cake was created by Ashley Bakery!!!
