We have the sweetest Charleston wedding to munch on for a bit. Captured by Kate Photography snapped all the pretty images with the help of second shooter Jake Drake Photography and it is a Southern sea of pink right down to the lovely hued shoes on the Bride’s feet. We can’t help but swoon over all the girly greatness put together by A Charleston Event. Care to join? See more of this soirée here.
From the Bride… During a visit back to Charleston the last week of August 2009, Bill surprised me with a beautiful room at the Vendue Inn, along with a sweet marriage proposal. I always knew I wanted to get married in the garden at Magnolia Plantation in front of the little white bridge, underneath the oak trees, rain or shine. We chose early October of 2010 as our date, and I immediately started planning my idea of a perfect vintage Southern wedding.
A few of my favorite details were the antique blue Mason jars & the candelabras (both which took me months of hunting & gathering from many antique stores), the antique lace & doilies (which belonged to Bill’s late grandmother) used throughout the location, Mrs. Brehmer’s vintage chandelier that hung above us during the ceremony, and all the fuchsia pink tones partnered with peacock feathers scattered around the veranda. We even had a few peacocks make an appearance!
My most treasured memory was before the ceremony when Bill made a blindfolded visit over to where I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. We really wanted a photo of the two of us holding hands, but not seeing each other, before it was time to walk down the aisle. It turned out absolutely perfect! The best part was when Bill slipped me a note he had written on one of our wedding cocktail napkins. Altogether, our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect.
