From Hannah Colclazier PhotographyThe stag and the fox, also known as Amy and Jeff, were married on March 1st 2014 in lovely Charleston, SC.

Amy drew a lot of inspiration from the Stag and the Fox which are incorporated throughout the wedding details. Invitations, Save the Dates, Cake Topper and antlers perfectly placed in the reception.

It was the perfect day! Amy and Jeff, both from South Carolina, now live in Alexandria, Virginia but wanted to go back home for their wedding day. The chose the Magnolia Plantation Carriage House as their venue for both the ceremony and reception.

Mustard yellow was one of the main focal colors throughout the day. Beautiful neutral flowers with pops of the bride’s favorite color, orange. The bride’s bouquet included pheasant feathers from her father’s home state of South Dakota.

The bride walked into the ceremony through two vintage doors to either side of the aisle and with chandeliers hanging from the trees above.

My favorite detail was the amazing “Guest Book” wall. Guests were invited to write their messages and hang their notes on antlers mounted on a wooden wall. At the top of the wall was a large bull skeleton…so cool!

Every last detail was placed by the Burlap Elephant and captured by Hannah Colclazier Photography.

From Gigi Noelle EventsI first met with this sweet couple when they came to visit Litchfield Plantation, which is in Pawley’s Island, SC, when they were looking for a wedding venue. I instantly knew I would love working with them when Robertas informed me that his bride to be spoke little English, but that he would be able to share her vision of her dream wedding.

Only 10 guests were to be in attendance and all were from other countries. During our first meeting with the couple we chatted about which vendors would be a perfect fit! We are very fortunate to have a Russian photographer in Myrtle Beach and we knew Pasha Belman and his wife would not only be able to communicate and understand their vision but could create beautiful and amazing pictures. Our second thought was to find a Russian priest to conduct the ceremony. Unfortunately, this was not to be, although we did find a minister, who with a few short lessons online, was able to speak a part of the ceremony in their native language. This was a special surprise for their parents, who spoke very little English but were able to understand when their children said “I do”!

It was very important for Polinas to have her bridal bouquet match a silk bouquet her Mother had made. Little did we know that when we created a bouquet filled with fragrant peonies and beautiful roses that it would perfectly match the Ukrainian headpiece her mother brought along with her custom design wedding gown from Russia.

Designing for the couple was easy. They loved The Plantation because of the 240 year history, the dreamy landscape and the quietness of the rice fields. Polinas asked for something romantic, soft, vintage and very pretty. We knew instantly that we would need to include lots of beautiful flowers, a gorgeous tablescape and lots of candles. With such a breathtaking venue, we knew that we could only enhance it.

A tent frame was erected and then draped with sheer white fabric. Polinas love of candlelight and café lighting added to the ambiance. A round table with 10 chevre chairs was placed under a crystal chandelier. We added beautiful flowers in soft shades of pink and cream, pink and gold candleholders, birdcages and designer china and crystal. Menu cards were tucked into the linen napkins. On the front side the menu was listed in English and on the back side in Russian.

A dessert table was designed with both a traditional wedding cake and a traditional Ukrainian cake specially ordered for the occasion. Although the table featured a silver tea service, the couple provided a silver Russian samovar (tea urn). The family also provided a variety of Russian candies and cookies featuring Oreshki, a cookie baked in a walnut mold, filled with Dulce de leche and traditional wedding spice cookies. Many shouts of “Gorko, Gorko” were heard throughout the night signaling that the bride and groom must kiss!

The couple ended the night by dancing to “Unforgettable”, by Nat King Cole under a crystal chandelier hung in a 300 year old oak tree overlooking the rice marsh. Robertas translated for Polinas the feelings she was unable to verbalize in English. She said that the night had been magical and dreamlike with everything she imagined making the memories of the night “Unforgettable”!

Charleston Destination Wedding at Old Wide Awake Plantation

Charleston never fails to wow when it comes to weddings. With elegance and charm, they always seem to sweep me off my feet. Today, Loren Routhier is proving my point in the prettiest of ways, because this Charleston soiree is the definition of perfection, and you can see what I mean here.


From Loren RouthierThese Chicago-natives had a lovely destination soiree at Old Wide Awake Plantation. It was a classic black tie affair with southern style and charm. The bride wore a stunning gown with overflowing tulle, while the groom wore a classic black tux and black bow tie. They were married under the sweeping oaks of the plantation, just off the banks of the Ashley River.
