Give me a classic southern soiree and you’ll have one crazy happy wedding blogger on your hands. But add in an A-team of vendors like Kristin Newman and Gathering Floral + Event Design, and I’m totally and completely head over heels. It’s a wedding so beautiful you’ll need to hold the phones and clear your morning schedule. But not to worry. It’s all in the name of swooning Gayle Brooker’s gorgeous photo’s in the full gallery here.
From Gayle Brooker Photography…Allison and Carlos tied the knot on the front lawn facing the historic avenue of oaks at Boone Hall Plantation. A celebration of dinner and dancing followed at the Cotton Dock. The couple wanted a simple, polished feel amongst the natural setting within the surrounding area. This balance carried throughout the entire evenings design scheme. The glass chandeliers, vases, and candlesticks brought a sense of refinement within an infrastructure made up of wooden walls and beams. Cocktail hour took place along the river side overlooking the marsh grasses. As the sun set, the candles illuminated the room creating an intimate ambience for dinner. Lush floral arrangements in whites and greens accompanied their guest’s place settings, made up of a custom menu and an ivory hemstitched napkin. After dinner guests danced to the beats from Quiana Parler and Friends. The evening concluded with a sparkler send off!
