Charleston in Bloom: A Spring Wedding at Hiberian Hall

August 11th, 2015

We love a spring time wedding, and these clients embraced the season with a pastel palette of pale pinks, lavender, accented with a sunny pop of soft yellow. The couple said "I do" amongst friends and family at St. Philip's Church in Charleston. Afterward, the celebration moved to the reception location at Hibernian Hall. There, guests were greeted with lush spring flowers decorating the dramatic wrought iron gate and a wash of pink light on the facade of the building which made the white neo-classical columns pop. Inside, a green arch marked the entrace to the party and in the center of the hall an oversized, organic, centerpiece with pink and peach garden roses decorated the buffet. Tables were drapped in soft pink and yellow linens and decorated with spring flowers like lilac, ranunuculus, and tulips, all arranged in elegant footed glass containers by Stems. A simple white tiered cake by Edible Art of Charlotte was decorated organically with blooming vines.

This beautiful black tie wedding took place at the classic winery wedding location, Pippin Hill. Ariella Chezar created organic, loose, garden arrangements in soft amber, orange, and cream tones. Elegant elements such as dahlias and garden roses arranged in gold compotes, jewelry boxes with rosebuds for guest seating cards, and formal placesettings of fine china and silver from Festive Fare. Linens from La Tavola were layered to create a soft, feminine texture. Moroccan tea glasses with ornate gold detail were used as votive holders and pillar candles were wrapped with marbled paper to create a romantic candlelit atmosphere. A large floral installation at the entryway by Ariella brought the outside in and created a dramatic focal point for the reception. You can see more of this stunning wedding in the latest issue of Geraldine.

It was a special honor to plan this wedding, it was for Easton Event's own Augusta's nuptials. The weddding was held at one our favorite locations in Charlottesville, Pippin Hill. The couple wanted an intimate wedding, the ceremony was held in the round, with guests encircling the bride and groom and a carpet of rose petals to mark the spot. Saturn Peaches were a key decor element and were featured on the simple seating card table and at the reception. For dinner, one long table on the veranda was set with elegant rentals and florals from Beehive Events. Peach roses with wild and organic greenery were arranged in elegant ceramic containers. Large hurricane candles added a romantic candlelit glow to the tables. You can see more of this wedding in the spring issue of The Knot. And a big congrats to these two who just celebrated their one year anniversary!
