Sarah and Travis were a fun, laid-back couple, who put a lot of emphasis on making sure their guests had a wonderful time. And they certainly did! From gourmet food and an international wine bar, to late-night carriage rides and a fun photobooth, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

As the setting for it all, they picked a beautiful southern venue, the SC Lace House, and let us help them bring their own unique style to it.
For the seated dinner, we set a mix of round and rectangular tables in the mall area in front of the House. We wanted to bring in the navy of the bridesmaid dresses, but keep the overall look light, so we used navy runners with lavender and apple green accents on white.
The governor even popped over to look at everything while we were setting up :)
LOVE these centerpieces for the round tables. Sarah saw a picture of it, we found the right vases and Savanda with Balloon Arches and Flowers made it gorgeous.
We created menus using a graphic of the lampposts on the Lace House grounds. And yes…we bought aLOTof green apples from Sam’s Club that week.
The arbor in full bloom made a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony:
First dance under the clear-top tent on the terrace.
Since the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing were all in different locations on the grounds and in the house, Sarah had these fabulous signs made to help direct guests.
Instead of a big cake, they had a small one for cutting, plus individual pies and an ice cream sundae bar. YUM!
The “wines of the world” bar was a big hit!
And one final shot in front of the gorgeous fountain at the Lace House.
