I love everything about today’s featured wedding. It’s chic without being overly designed, it’s traditional without being stuffy and contemporary without being edgy. It’s perfect in my book AND it just happens to be my SMP research associate’s wedding which makes it even more special!

From Carrie…the beautiful bride!

I loved the surprises Carrie and Leigh at A Charleston Bride created. They both could not have done a better job listening to my ideas and making them reality. Carrie introduced me to a fabulous print by Snow and Graham and we ran with it. My best friend and graphic designer, Lauren Richie, did the most incredible job branding our wedding. She created timeless and unique styles to incorporate the printed pattern that we built our theme around.

The blackberry print appeared in the lining of our invitations which were hand lined by my sister, Angie and I  – and which was carried throughout my printed materials up to my thank you notes and menus. Carrie and Leigh carried out the print by wrapping votives, pillars, and boxes with the printed paper.

I loved the split peas in the jars too…such a fun colorful touch that I noticed when I got my pictures back from the wedding. I loved how inside the Wickliffe House the ACB gals had a very vintage theme, which was carried out in every detail. Outside the 1800’s home was a chic modern lounge – a perfect juxtaposition to our vintage interior. Finally, I LOVED the white umbrellas especially in my photographs.
