Southern Holiday Centerpiece featured by Garden & Gun

November 12th, 2014

We at Easton Events enjoy "farm-to-table" dining thus we were inspired to create a "farm-to-vase" arrangement for our holiday table. We collaborated with the wildly talented Shawn Cossette of Beehive Events of Charlottesville to create our artfully composed arrangement. An heirloom silver compote was the perfect vessel to showcase the blooms. The floral menu blends beautifully with the dishes we plan to share with our guests: fruiting wild dogwood, pears, genovese basil gone to seed, cinnamon basil, wild privet berries, maple leaves, a la mode dahlias, and David Austen garden roses. We are grateful to photographer Eric Kelley for capturing the look for all of us!

Certainly this arrangement captures the warmth and spirit of the holiday season, but this palette would be equally fitting for a gorgeous late fall wedding! To see more of Shawn's enticing work with Easton Events please enjoy the following weddings: North Wales, Wild Cat Hollow, On the Boardwalk, and Layers of Copper Patina.

Garden & Gun - thank you for featuring our work and further inspiring all of our holiday seasons! To read more about the feature visit: Holiday-Prep - Southern Centerpieces 3 Ways

A Perfect Fit

October 17th, 2014

We are so happy to see our gorgeous couple Alice Chang and Forrest Comartos in the Fall/Winter edition of Charleston Magazine. These newlyweds chose Easton Events to orchestrate the planning of their Charleston destination wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation, an idyllic waterfront estate on the downtown peninsula. 

Alice told Charleston Magazine that the couple fell in love with this location “for its wide view of the peaceful water and for the house that gives the location its grandeur, the palm trees that remind us of the beach, and the expansive lawn.”

The ceremony décor embraced the natural elements of the outdoors. Linen cushions lined the benches, and a seagrass runner bordered by rose petals created an aisle up to the arbor. The Ashley River and incoming high tide provided a gorgeous backdrop for the newlywed’s first pictures together.

Following the ceremony, guests mingled in the outdoor lounge space decorated with topiaries, Oriental rugs, cane-backed chairs, linen settees, and wire side tables.  The dinner featured dramatic draping surrounding the x-shaped table design that created an intimate space on such a large lawn, all alfresco​. The moonlit evening concluded with a champagne toast and dancing well into the night.
