This Blush Colored City is Perfect for a Wildly Romantic Elopement

Charleston is one of those places that has romance at every turn and it only has a wee bit to do with its blush colored buildings, Spanish Moss laced streets and horse drawn carriages. All in all it’s about as perfect a spot as can be for an intimate destination wedding. Especially one at the hands of Sweet Magnolia Flowers and Shining Light Photography. Take a little Southern style vacay right here.

From the Bride… We knew from the beginning that we wanted to do a destination wedding. We both wanted something small, intimate and romantic. Initially setting out to find a beach destination we quickly realized that wasn’t the best fit for us. It wasn’t until our last night in Charleston on our visit to find a venue that we heard about Battery Park while at dinner. With it only being a few blocks away from the restaurant we decided to check it out. Even with it being late at night we both knew that with the ocean and its breeze combined with all of the Spanish moss, beautiful trees, and history that it would be the perfect setting for our special day. Except for in a few search engine pictures online, we didn’t see all of the beauty it had to offer until months later when we came to look for vendors. Even then, we couldn’t have imagined how breathtaking and perfect it would actually be for our wedding day.

I was so nervous about it being a public venue and I thought I wouldn’t enjoy having strangers watch our wedding. But I loved that as soon as I walked down the aisle people stopped and were so respectful of our moment. It was such a wonderful thing that to people who I will never even know their names stopped us as we took pictures to tell us how they watched our whole wedding and how magical it was. They got to be a small part of our happy ever after.

Inspiration Every Spring Bride Should See!

Spring is slowly beginning to make an appearance and this inspiration from Vitor Lindo, Scarlet Plan & Design, and a whole crew of great vendors has me counting down the days until it’s officially here. Inside the gallery you’ll find so many ideas for a springtime affair – from invitations to florals, fashion, cakes and more. But don’t just take my word for it, scroll below and see the pretty for yourself!

From the planner + stylist, Scarlet Plan & Design…

What did you envision for the photo shoot?

This fabulous Summer in the Garden wedding shoot was held at a 200-year-old Charleston home called the Parsonage. The space was once home to the parsons of St. Johannes Lutheran Church as well as their families. We envisioned a bright, colorful, bohemian summer wedding held in the courtyard garden of a historic downtown Charleston home. We wanted to juxtapose a traditional setting with a very eclectic wedding design.

What was your color palette and your style vision?

Our color palette was made up of several shades of pink. I kept calling the shoot “Yes Way, Rose!” because there were so many shades of pink. We had a smoky rose, a deep raspberry, pale blush, peachy tones, rose gold, coral and more. I’d definitely say the style vision was fresh, whimsical and very romantic with tons of unexpected bohemian touches. From the vintage books, the mismatched couches and chairs to the fresh flower wall, it was an eclectic heart’s dream!

Any unique elements or DIY details?

I think my favorite elements were using my grandmother’s vintage ring on the model and the 3 wedding cakes from Vintage Soul Cakes. All 3 were so unique and perfect for the design! We also used mismatched vintage sofas and chairs to create the super fun ceremony seating design going down the center of the driveway.
