A Showstopping Dress For This Chic Southern Wedding

I love classic Southern celebrations but add in an amazingly chic dress and now we’re really talking. This Austin Scarlett masterpiece is one for the books and we’ve already pinned to our boards to ogle at for weeks to come. It’s the icing on the cake of this whole wedding planned and designed by Ooh! Events, and captured for our lucky eyes by Clay Austin. See it all in our Vault right this way!

From Ooh! EventsSarah and Pablo met in New York at a party. Pablo walked in and Sarah was determined to meet him. The rest is history – his original plan was to only be in New York temporarily, but when he met Sarah his plan changed and their love story grew in the Big Apple.

Sarah’s family has a place in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and they wanted to choose a place that was just “Sarah and Pablo” so they landed on the grandeur and beauty of a Sunday wedding at Lowndes Grove Plantation on October 25, 2015.

Insider Tips to Pull Off A White-On-White Celebration

I love a pop of color as much as the next girl, but sometimes there’s no better color palette than no color at all. *Enter* the event design gurus at Easton Events who so graciously offered to walk us through their tips and tricks to planning an all-white party. Whether a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or just a casual summer dinner party, there are a million reasons to opt for white-on-white and today we’re showing you how. Thanks, Lucy Cuneo for the pretty snaps sitting all right here!

MIX TEXTURES + SHAPES

Mixing textures and shapes is the ultimate trick to dressing your table in white on white. For this particular event, we paired a vintage lace tablecloth with stacked french porcelains. The porcelain collection varies in patterns and style so we mixed them for each place setting. This technique added interest, but because the palette is tonal, the mixture never felt distracting to the eye! Likewise, the heirloom silver and cut crystal champagne coupes have intricate detailing, but given the neutral palette, the designs on the whole are balanced and not overly busy.

PLAY WITH SHADES

Explore different shades and tones of white – some of the most beautiful white floral arrangements range from bright white to soft cream just like the phalaenopsis orchids compared to the soft cream garden roses. You need subtle change in tone or texture to add depth and interest to your design.

PULL IN SILVER

When working with a clean white palette, we think silver is the softest approach for flatware and vessels. It never hurts to mix in your favorite mother of pearl touches too!

PLAY UP THE MENU

Embrace the theme with your menu! For this southern brunch we chose to serve a beautiful cheese board, deviled eggs, buttered baby radishes, cauliflower panna cotta, and a tres leches dessert. The culinary palette was not purely white, but we certainly gave the theme a gentle nod.

DON’T FORGET THE BUBBLY

A white-on-white soiree is the perfect opportunity for white wine and champagne… which also makes it a well-suited brunch or luncheon look!

From Ooh! EventsChar is my best friend from childhood (since we were in the 3rd grade) so when she got engaged I offered to plan her wedding. She and David had some ideas that were really important to them: a fun band that could make it feel like a “party” environment and a blush, lavender, cool tone color palette. Char’s mother was very in tune with the design and we worked tirelessly to come up with an eclectic layout that accommodated a huge, 250-plus person wedding. Ultimately, the December day at Lowndes Grove turned out to be 80 degrees and beautifully sunny! It was perfect!

Char and David met while she was visiting her friend Beverly (also a bridesmaid) in New York for NYE. David was living in DC working in technology there and Char was in Charleston in PA school. She visited him in DC a handful of times after hitting it off on New Years Eve and eventually David moved down to Charleston, which is home for him, to be closer to Char. After dating for about 3 years, Char started a rotation in Hawaii. She moved down there at the start of 2015, and on NYE (a date that was so special to both of them) David popped the question on a beach in Hawaii.
