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

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 🙂

Kaycie and Todd are so fun and happy, it was only natural that they picked a bright, cheerful color scheme for their spring wedding. Lots of hydrangeas in blue and coral plus details like the custom monogram and lantern centerpieces added just the right touch of the couple’s fresh style to their beautiful traditional southern venues.

The ceremony was at Rutledge Chapel on the USC horseshoe. The talented Kaycie loved their beautiful monogram, so she handpainted this canvas to mark the entrance.

The Lace House, where the reception was held is such a gorgeous venue. We placed tables on the balcony overlooking the dancefloor, and to continue with the monogram theme, we wrapped the ceneterpiece cube vases with ribbon topped with a printed monogram.

Parkland even created the monogram perfectly on the cake.

For downstairs tables, we used our black lanterns in the center of flower rings created by Bloom Service.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets spent the reception in vases on the gorgeous mantels in the Lace House.

After the ceremony, we brought the pew marker arrangements and hung on the doors throughout the house.

Love this view from the DJ tent once the reception was well underway.

One of my favorite favors ever…Adluh grits!

Gorgeous, gorgeous shot by the amazing Courtney Dox.

And the finally, the sparkler exit!

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.

Professional photos are thanks to Michael Koska Photography. The unmarked ones are candids we took while setting up.

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.

Outdoor summer weddings in South Carolina can sometimes ‘make you raise your eyebrow’ every now and then ~ but when Carlo and Adriel came to me with their Southern flare and easy-going personalities…I knew we would make the August nuptials spectacular for all those coming from all over the country.

Yes – the Southern flare began with the perfect venue…the South Carolina Lace House!  Once the couple had selected this gorgeous location to marry each other, we began putting the pieces together of this lovely puzzle…

Let’s start our weekend with Friday night’s rehearsal dinner ~ they hosted a traditional BBQ dinner to give many ‘east coast guests’ a real treat!!!  The dinner was held at the Historic 701 Whaley building.  Capital City Catering did the most amazing job with their famous BBQ and fried chicken 🙂  I just LOVE the cast iron skillet they use ~ we topped the tables with burlap and mason jars filled with wild flowers (created by Think Floral – Debby West).

After a fun, relaxed evening Friday, we got up Saturday and began preparing for the wedding!   The couple married in the oh so quaint garden hidden in the back corner of the Lace House grounds.  The day was a little warm but the garden was shaded and comfortable.  We thought we may get that ‘traditional’ summer shower but we were so lucky that the clouds rolled in and just ‘hung out’ for a while.  Ceremony was so lovely, dinner was fabulous and dancing was non-stop (thanks to Partytime DJ)!!

Clark and Becki Berry captured this spectacular wedding ~ some of the photos below are obviously theirs :-).

Debby West/Think Floral created the so elegant baby’s breath arrangements for the ceremony and calla lily for reception!



The guests were treated to a beautiful plated dinner by Jack Brantley, Aberdeen Catering.  His exquisite collection of antique china was the icing on the cake for this beautiful design.

Seating cards were designed with the couples love of wine in mind!

Each table carried the name of one of the couples favorite restaurants that they enjoy in either Boston and San Fransisco!


The yummy, yummy cake was by Parkland Cakes!



This couple was so loving, sweet, kind and HAPPY!  This is what makes a wedding so absolutely perfect….and to top it off…their familes were exactly the same!

The June wedding took place at the beautiful Lace House in Columbia.  They got married out in front of the grounds ‘signature’ fountain and as you can see…it is amazing. 

Below is the ceremony all set and ready- Debby West, Think Floral created the beautiful floral designs that really pulled it all together.

I love this photo as Brittany began to ‘walk down the aisle’ from the front of the house!

Candid shot during the ceremony.

They decided to do the ‘unity sand’ during their service – lovely touch.

…and of course a great fun monogram on the garden gate.

This was so great….they brought monogrammed buckets for the drink station out next to the ceremony to place water in!

Their beautiful cake by Dianna Tornow, Your Kind of Cake

Brenda Lee out of Manning catered the event- it was spectacular….one of my favorites was the caesar salad display!

…and this was the guests favorites…the ice cream bar!
