Elegant Ballroom Wedding in Charleston

Now I’m not positive on this, but I’d imagine exchanging vows under a chuppah full of florals and dripping in crystal just makes the “I Do” sound that much better. With bright petals leading the way down the aisle, and a reception equally as beautiful, this couple may have compromised on a destination, but Sara York Grimshaw did not compromise on style. See all the captures from Marni Rothschild here.

From Marni RothschildMatt, originally from Tennessee and Marissa, from New Jersey, dated long distance for two years after meeting in college in Boulder. One weekend they decided to take a quick vacation and meet in Charleston, SC. Marissa had never been to Charleston before but Matt and his family would vacation in Charleston when he was younger. Over dinner one night they were talking about how much they were falling in love with the city and if they ever got married, it would be in Charleston. So four years later when Matt proposed there was no question. It turned out to be a great compromise between her family up north and his family in the south.

Both of Matt’s sisters brought a special touch to the wedding. Amanda made the bridesmaids necklaces and Lauren made the flowers for the cake out of recycled materials.

My favorite detail was the cufflinks Marissa gave her Uncle. Her mom (his sister) had passed away and Marissa had cufflinks made for him with lace from her wedding gown. There was also a piece of her mom’s gown sown into her own.

The bride and groom wanted to take advantage of both the city and the clubhouse on Daniel Island, so we staged a first look downtown. The Customs House was directly across the street from their hotel and a local hospice happened to be doing an outreach program that day. The steps of the building were covered in flower umbrellas that perfectly complemented the ballroom décor! The bright backdrop and onlookers made for a memorable first look. On Daniel Island, the ceremony was under a chuppah dripping with crystals, twigs and gobs of flowers on the Clubhouse lawn. Guests enjoyed sunset during the cocktail hour outdoors and then dined underneath a draped ceiling with a dozen crystal chandeliers hung at varying heights in the ballroom.

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.

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.
