Kate, Tony and their families are the coolest people~ we became family once we began working on their wedding with them~ they were so much fun yet focused on creating a memorable event that guests would be talking about for years to come.

The dedication that went in to the planning warms our hearts every time we talk about it.  They were very specific about certain items but then let us run with some of our own thoughts that really made this beautiful Fall day emerge so beautifully.

The couple married at the elegant St. Joseph Catholic Church and picked the gorgeous Millstone at Adams Pond for their reception. Guests arrived to cocktails out front with the couple then enjoyed the yummy tastings in the house from Southern Way Catering.

Once everyone’s tummy was full, they all moved out back under the draped tent to enjoy the wonderful sounds of The Finesse Band!  They rocked all night long~

Take a look at the wonderful images captured by the talented All Dressed Up Photography to see how lovely this event turned out.

Once again, I had the honor of working with  another member of a family I already had the pleasure of working with!  I loved working with Brittany and David to help bring together this beautiful fall wedding. We had fun creating custom details and unique touches.

The beautiful yellow and gray color palette got expressed in some really amazing textures threaded in to this day.  The couple hand crafted several of their wedding details that made it so special ~ we had fun creating details with them like the chalkboard vases that we got to write fun words on to the ‘Harry Potter’ inspired candy bar!

Grant at Something Special Florist designed such a lovely look with the yellow and whites, incorporating succulents in to the mix.  We decided to add in some antique furniture to bring in unique flare that the couple wanted~

Candid photo of the space.

As guests arrived, they met this sweet little antique table dressed with hand-made poms on the tree~ galvanized tubs held pashminas and programs that were crossword puzzles on the back.

This program/crossword puzzle was so great!  Guests had the best time with this before ceremony began~

Another angle of the ceremony space ~ the handmade yellow fabric flower balls hanging we beautiful hanging behind them!

This was so sweet~ David came back down the aisle to meet Brittany and start their journey together at the beginning of the aisle.

Great chalkboard vases with custom messages 🙂

Of course we have to have Lawn Games for cocktail hour!!

This couple had the most amazing sense of humor!!!!

Inside ~ tables and ceiling were drapped in gray tulle!!!

Guests go the answers when they went in 🙂

Yummy yummy cupcakes for dessert!

So cute~ recycled paint can created to match the wedding was a great chiller!

Can’t you just feel the love!!!

This is a hard post for me, not in a bad way, but in a way that I just love this couple, this family, this wedding and all the vendors that helped bring it together in to one absolutely beautiful and breath-taking event, I could talk forever.

Ali and Ryan are one of the most loving, giving, understanding and relaxed couples I have ever met.  When we began planning with them, we knew it was an instant  connection and jumped in with both feet.  The ideas that they brought paired with our resources and experience created an event that was beyond gorgeous and memorable ~ so much that it got featured on the amazing blog ‘Southern Aisle  http://www.southernaisle.com/2012/05/lace-house-love.html?spref=fb

Don’t over look the details in each photo~ there are so many from the floral chandelier to the unique table numbers!

The photos below will tell the story, I mean I could talk about this forever but I will let Brantley’s beautiful images show you 🙂

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 beautiful summer wedding was so bright, fun and exciting!  Rachel, Chris and their sweet families were amazing to work with ~

We added beautiful color to 701 Whaley to tie together the summer garden party feel.  Debby West with Think Floral created some gorgeous pieces that really brought lovely beauty to the space.  Chinese paper lanterns over the dance floor added a pop of color and texture above the space.

When I first met Chrissie I was so excited to be a part of her special day. She was full of life & that southern sweetness that Carolina girls are known for. The backdrop for this amazing day began in a quaint little white church built in 1884. With its amazing architectural aspects it was a perfect spot for Chrissie & Paul to start forever together.

Cake, Michelle Hopkins

(Some of these beautiful images are by Richard Ellis Photography, which are marked, others are candid!!)

After a sweet ceremony filled with lots of emotion & love the bridal party drove to the McCants family home in the blue Chevy truck that Paul picked Chrissy up for on their first date.

Chrissie wanted bright & vibrant colors as well & choose some wonderful fuchsia & orange colors that popped against the beautiful backdrop of their family home.  As guests arrive, they were treated to fabulous homemade peach jam.

We were able to create a design that incorporated market umbrellas for each of her food stations that the wonderful Capital City Catering delivered amazing food underneath, including homemade churned peach ice cream!

We added a beautiful lounging area underneath one of the old, large oak trees & hung crystal chandeliers above to bring the indoors out with an elegant yet outdoor southern feel. After the sun set it was a popular area for guests to gather underneath.

Jennifer and Corey were so passionate about their wedding planning~ I loved that they were both so very involved with all the details.  They knew they wanted to use a beautiful red and purple color palette so we helped them bring together the right mix to balance the space while bringing in elegant touches to give their guests a beautiful experience.

The couple married at Brookland Baptist Church in a romantic candlelight ceremony.  They then greeted guests at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center for an evening of dinner and dancing. The space was brought to life with rich red linens and lush silver chavari chairs.  Tables were topped with gorgeous two tiered floral designs and trumpet vases.

I love this shot…the smiles say it all.

The couple had a wishing tree for guests to leave well wishes.

Love the salad served in the stemless martini glass.

An over-all shot of the room.

Closer angle…

Look at this amazing cake by Michelle’s Cakescapes ~ crystal stand custom from By Invitation Only…Event Planning & Design

And my most favorite image of the couple!!

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!
