Introducing…The ‘Everhart’s  ~ this wedding is the perfect Fall wedding.  Gorgeous couple, rich colors, lush florals and photos to die for!

Kelly and I had been working together for some time to bring this beautiful design to life ~ we began with this  great rustic venue {The Hall at Senate’s End} , soften the exposed brick feel with textured linens and elegant candelabras wrapped with gorgeous fall florals by American Floral.

This oh so fabulous wedding was captured by the very talented Courtney Dox ~ thank you so much for sharing your beautiful images!

I fell in love with this rich color palette the minute I saw it~ Danielle and Matt were so easy-going and relaxed about all the details ~ they wanted to have a fabulous event where everyone enjoyed every minute while being exposed to Columbia landmarks.

The couple picked 2 lovely venues for their wedding day~ Rutledge Chapel and Capital City Club.  Both spaces were beautifully designed with the gold and black colors so that they complemented the space!

Scott at American Floral brought in floral design that perfectly balanced the rich metallics and textures ~ I love using the variety of tall and low centerpieces at Capital City Club…it did not interfere with the breath -taking views.

LOVE this custom monogram over our seating card table.

Our table changed over to coffee favors for guests to enjoy.

The sleek lounge area!

And of course the yummy and beautiful cake!

This wedding was so special to all of us~ Rachel is one of the B.I.O. family so of course being able to help them make their day so special was an honor!  We truly felt like part of their families~ they welcomed us with open arms.

Rachel wanted her summer wedding to have bright, bold colors that popped in the beautiful 701 Whaley!  Ceremony was upstairs in the lovely Granby Room.  The emotion that came forward during the service moved us all ~ not a dry eye. 

Rachel and Quinn selected great vendors that made a great team to bring all the details together ~ each detail was perfected and truly enjoyed by everyone.

Very sadly, Rachel’s brother is stationed overseas and could not make the wedding, but he was very close to her through the entire event~ Scott at American Floral made sure.

Room shot where you can see the vibrant blue draping and how it matched the bold floral design.

American Floral created both tall and low centerpieces that work great in this room!

Fun photos dressed the windows.

Great evening shot of our food display and florals.

Love the mint green cake ~ Carol of course did a beautiful job!!

In this you can see the light strands we did over the dance floor.

And I had to add this….I love her expression!!!  BEAUTIFUL!

I can’t tell you how excited we get when we begin putting designs together with creative couples, vendors, and  elements!!!  Tyler and Will picked an oh so gorgeous venue to begin with for their wedding and reception~ but what was wonderful is that they truly utilized the venues natural beauty and ‘fed off of it’!! 

The gray and {shades of} green color palette was so perfect out there with all the spanish moss and natural backdrops!!!  Tyler found some wonderful inspiration images that she loved for her design ~ so working closely with them and American Floral, a beautiful setting began to developed. 

We got really inspired and B.I.O.  custom-built the arbor that Tyler and Will married in front of ~ American Floral built-in gorgeous natural accents of moss, vine and floral designs!!

No space went without a ‘touch’ of this events design as you can see from balcony, banister and doorways….

So on to the photos….

They even hung from the chandelier.

…and the yummy cupcakes with the cutest bride and groom ducks!!

This wedding is beyond words in many ways!!!  Elizabeth and Andrew came to us asking for help to bring their wedding to life and together in a very special location ~ an arboretum in Boykin, South Carolina.  This space was gorgeous and holds a special place in their hearts so we began working on the design and layout of the weekend.

We worked closely with, of course, the couple, but also Capital City Catering, Palmetto Party Rental and American Floral to get all aspects ‘in-line’ and unique to this couple. 

The love and friendship that we got to be a part of during this wedding was so moving~ all the details in the wedding spoke directly of the couples relationship and future which made it so very meaningful and unique~

Due to all the images, I will talk about them as you go through the amazing images from Sara Parker and the details!!

We have amazing vendor love here:

So…as you can see from the title (that Darren came up with) she really did love his tractor 🙂  I just love this sign detail!

Andrew created their ‘directional sign’ from a reclaimed door out of a house on the property.

Now this is soooo great….the guys wore bow ties with cotton bowls on and then each wore a bout. of cotton and pheasant feathers!!

Love the bright colors ~ bouquest were wrapped with spanish moss….great touch!

This cute little flower girl basket custom with the ‘A+E’

Hand-made monograms hung on the entry columns to great guests.

Look at this gazebo!!  Andrew actually built this to marry his wife in….breath taking~ Americanl Floral did the perfect additions to add their colors and texture!

The fresh squeezed lemonade station by Capital City Catering, complete with mason jars!

Inside of the tent

So great….quail and cat-fish station.

Soooo beautiful was this collard and black-eyed pea station!!!  LOVE the bricks and mason jars!!

A great look at the smores station…

Smores station in action!!

Now this is so lovely….from the same house they used more reclaimed wood to make this one of a kind bar!!

Love this ‘hay bale coffee table’

Oh so yummy cake….

One of my favorite cake toppers, matches the hanging monograms!

We took a traditional silver candelabra and had them turn it in to this gorgeous creation!

Our hanging mason jars with candles

The couple had a silver signature tray for their guestbook!

Even more unique and fun….the couples favorite pickles as favors!

Another great image in the wheat field

Their send was wodnerful….and yes, on the tractor!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when we are lucky enough to be part of a wedding in which we have already had the honor of working with the family 🙂  Several years ago we met the Anderson family when their first daughter got married….now we were called on to help plan with their next daughter getting married~ it was soooo amazing to be with this beautiful family once again!

One of the best parts about working with Catherine and Carl was the connection we already had with them ~ they have been working with our company over the past few months and we have gotten so close…the hard part was trying to keep Catherine from ‘working’ her own wedding – she is so cute!

The day was perfect and beautiful ~ the couple wanted a traditional Southern wedding experience in every detail, so we began with the private ceremony being held at Rutledge Chapel and the Historic Seibels House and Gardens as the reception backdrop.  Southern was in everything….Jack Brantley once again catered for this family and American Floral created the gorgeous floral design that contained my favorite….Dogwood ~ how much more Southern can you get??

Now when I say this family was fun….that is an understatement.  When the bride shared a dance with her dad….it took an interesting turn, the entire Anderson family stepped out on the dance floor and did ‘The Hustle’ ~ beyond AWESOME (see photo below)!!!

Love these arrangements ~ the dogwood and tulips are my favorite.

Gorgeous food displays~

Yes….and this is the family doing ‘The Hustle’ 🙂

And of course, all the crew had to come to her wedding!!!  Love you girl!!

I know every week I talk about how amazing this weeks couple is…but I guess we are so blessed with amazing brides, grooms, families and friends that I begin to sound like a broken record but it is SO true!  I can not begin to tell you how much I absolutely adore this couple!!!!

Ginny and Ken are loving, sweet, gorgeous and SO in love!!!  They planned their oh so fun and exciting wedding in their hometown of Manning.  They knew they were going to have LOTS of family and friends attending so they selected the largest venue that could accommodate them ~ but they really wanted to make sure the space had a different look and feel as other events that had been there and of course, we wanted to make sure that it was custom to THEM~ so we went to work!!!!

They selected a color palette that was gorgeous, but Ginny was not sure how she wanted it to come together, so we began working with it, creating that personalized feel and with the help of BBJ Linen ~ it all came together in an amazing scene of texture and boldness!  We wanted to transform the room so we began by wrapping it!!!  This gave us the clean, bright base to begin working on…

Ginny wanted to make sure we mixed things up a little so you will see a few ‘different’ touches and custom details!!  Also I got to work with some of the BEST vendors…which as I ALWAYS say makes for the most perfect event!!

The funny on this event was this is where the B.I.O. team got named the ‘event fairies’..and it has stayed with us~ just my giggle for the day!

So on to the great stuff….PHOTOS~ now some are candid, but others were graciously given to us by Megan Manus Photography!! (Thank you!!)

Okay…just LOOK at this couple…I am jealous!

So before and after photos are always so neat just to show what can happen…

so here is the entry before ~

…and after.  So, we created a fun gift table and are REALLY fun signature drink display!

Here is the before images of the main room…

And the awesome after!  This photo does not do it justice!

Another angle~

There were a few signs we needed to hide so I made a custom cover and monogram for it!  This was above the back bar bookcase.

And more of the room from other angles.

From the lounge area~

One of the two corner bars 🙂

Lindsay and Derrick truly are each other’s sunshine…even on a cloudy, stormy day!!  Lindsay and I truly clicked when we met….not only were we on the same page, but I think we wrote the book together 🙂  This couple (along with their beautiful families) had ideas that I myself would use at my wedding (if I did it over).  First were the colors….I love, love, love the yellow- one of my favorites, then they added in the rich navy that just was gorgeous!

The Saluda River Club could not be a more lovely back drop for pairing of a natural feel and Lindsay’s chic fashion taste!  The yellow was so bright and beautiful outside for the ceremony ~ then bringing it in to the club with soft white and pops of blue were so elegant.  We added a few soft touches with draped fabric and candlelight that made this event soooo lovely!!

Kickstand Studio captured some AMAZING images that they were so kind to share, you will see them noted below!

We were able to get the ceremony complete before our rare March thunderstorms came rolling in!  Ceremony was so lovely…

This young man was so serious about his ‘job’ but wanted me to tell him ‘one more time’!

Lovely~

I just love how she is looking at him!  ….and of course the yellow flowers are just amazing!

Makes you cry when you see this!

Beautiful venue~ but you see our storm rolling in….

I want this pool 🙂

We have a fun guest book~

Larger shot of the guest book table ~ they wrote sweet notes and hung it on the twine with clothes pins!

Tents down below for lounging!

Romantic…
