I am really smitten with today’s featured wedding that the unbelievably talented Calder Clark of Calder Clark Designs in Charleston sent us. It’s traditional, but in a really fresh and completely chic way…

From the beautiful bride…

The wedding planning pretty much began on our drive back from Asheville. Both Walt and I knew we wanted a fall wedding somewhere outside of Atlanta. With both of us being from Atlanta, we wanted a destination that would be a getaway of sorts for everyone. We decided Charleston was the place that had it all. My family has a home on the Isle of Palms, and the culture of Charleston really became our inspiration in planning the wedding.
