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.

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 🙂

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!

Great centerpieces.

You can’t go wrong with this candy bar ~

I just adore this…

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.

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.

This wedding was so bright, exciting and full of fun!  The couple really wanted to incorporate a summer {garden} feel ~ so the bright colors were a beautiful base to begin.

They brought in the beautiful designs of Debby West and Think Floral to add that garden touch~ the topiaries with Gerber daisy, hydrangea and lemons were absolutely perfect.  All the colors were so vibrant and exhilarating.

Now you know the B.I.O. girls, we LOVE custom details…so when we started to see these fun touches come to life, the more excited we got (not that we weren’t already 🙂  From the most beautiful linen cake table runner to the oh so funny cake toppers, lemons and limes in the coffee table legs to the  color coordinated popcorn!!!!  Fabulous.

It was lovely to be able to work with the talented Lucas Brown, Kickstand Studio again~ he captured the amazing images below!!!

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!

From the moment I met Tori and her parents they made me feel like part of the family. And when I met her fiancé Jordan, he literally welcomed me with open arms too.  That’s just the kind of people they are, so it was no surprise their day reflected that strong sense of hospitality, friendship and family.

 This was one of the prettiest back-yard weddings I’ve been part of, but then it was one of the prettiest back yards I’ve seen! Tori’s mom is an incredible gardener and she and Tori’s dad spent hours and hours making sure the setting would be perfect!

Entrance to the back yard. Guests walked from the nearby church and had cocktail hour in front of the house; then, once the bride and groom arrived, they entered the backyard for the full reception!

This yard had so many elements to work with. We put the vegetable sauté station in front of this fabulous birdhouse.

Check out these centerpieces! Every table had a silver tea set and tray filled with gorgeous blooms. Steve from The Ivy Porch did an amazing job on all the flowers.

One of my favorite elements was our chandelier over the cake. It’s always a challenge to decide how to make everything work with a floorplan that makes sense! We really wanted the cake in this corner, so then we had to figure out how to rig the chandelier. I was so happy with how it turned out.

Another wonderful feature of the yard was the koi pond. We put our ottomans out for seating and lanterns along the rim. It looked spectacular as the sun set.

One of Tori’s big challenges when she first came to us was trying to find a great color for the bridesmaids’ dresses that would go with the orange she knew she wanted. We played around with a bunch of swatches and she loved the idea of using silver/grey. Look how great it looks! It helped that she also picked stunning dresses!!

I love this picture captured by Sutherland Hill Farms:

Tori and her dad had a carriage take them to the church a couple of blocks away.

Capital City Catering did a wonderful job as always of customizing the menu for their couple. The menu included smoked salmon that was caught by Tori’s parents in Alaska and Capital City displayed with all the accompaniments and “Orange Tiger Mousse” complete with a purple paw piped on top.

The Clemson Tiger showed up at the reception and even took the couple for a ride in a neighbor’s golf cart.

The wonderful couple with their favorite wedding planner and caterer 🙂
