Springtime on the Ashley

April 6th, 2016

The newly wedded couple, Ashley & JB, rang in spring time on the Ashley River at their reception, taking place at Charleston’s very own Lowndes Grove Plantation. The couple emulated the season through their soft color palette display of pale greens, dusted pinks, and light yellows that adorned the plantation grounds. Guests were greeted with refreshing signature cocktails, accompanied by the violin quartet melodies to create the perfect atmosphere. As the sun set, an elegant seated dinner took place underneath the transformed tent. The tables were draped with delicately embroidered white linens, and decorated with spring flowers laced in an array of glass containers and mint julep cups. Spring was in full bloom as guests twirled beneath the floral chandelier, which was complimented by the couples’ very own customized dance floor. The perfect spring evening came to an end as friends and family gathered to send off the happy couple with a grand sparkler exit!

Equestrian Elegance

November 11th, 2015

Absolutely loved this collaboration for Southern Wedding Magazine! Gathering inspiration from our bucolic Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards and working with amazing vendors such as Amber Moon Design, Beehive Events and Casa de Perrin is always such a pleasure. Our intention was to reinvent the palette of pink and brown by mixing leather, wood, and sophisticated pale pink tones with a romantic equestrian nod. The soft pastel Romona Keveza gown was the finishing touch for our gorgeous our Bride and khaki suiting was perfect for our handsome Groom. Working with the phenomenal destination photographer, KT Merry, was a joy! She has an exquisite eye for detail, beauty, and emotion.

Dock of the Bay

September 8th, 2015

With the backdrop of the bay, this couple said "I do" at the historic Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston. The couple picked a palette of soft blue with hints of dusty pink and white for their wedding design. The ceremony was held down by the docks, and Stems designed a circular floral arch with light blue hydranga and garden roses. At cocktail hour, mint juleps in traditional glasses were tray passed to guests. Dinner was held under a beautiful tent and featured long tables with soft blue linens and a garland of flowers mixed with hurricane candles. For the wedding cake, designed by Jim Smeal, one tier featured delicate lace inspired by the bride's dress over soft blue fondant, and the other tiers featured delicate sugar flowers of individual hydranga blooms. We just loved how this elegant Southern wedding turned out and all of it was captured so perfectly by the photographer, Jen Fariello.
