Colorful Charleston Wedding With The Brightest Blooms Ever

When wedding industry vets get married, there’s a pretty good chance it’s gonna be gorgeous. Need proof? Check out this colorful Charleston wedding of one of the floral designers of Branch Design Studio. Dana Cubbage captured the beautiful blooms that were everywhere AND every angle of this blush wedding dress from Gown Boutique of Charleston. Film Anywhere Productions got in on the live action and it’s all in our Vault gallery right this way!


From Dana Cubbage WeddingsI have known Eliza for a few years now and have worked with her more times than I can count. She is one of the talented floral artists at Branch Design Studio here in Charleston and when she contacted me last year right after she got engaged, needless to say I was THRILLED!! It’s always such an honor when another industry colleague asks you to be a part of their wedding day. I knew Eliza’s wedding day would be incredible and I have to say… it was everything I envisioned and SO MUCH MORE!!

Naturally, the florals were breathtaking. The ladies at Branch truly outdid themselves for Eliza’s big day. So much texture and so many bright colors… I was in absolute HEAVEN! Eliza’s blush tulle ballgown was a definite showstopper and every single detail of the day was thoughtfully addressed. The Gadsden House was the PERFECT venue for this garden-inspired soiree and the weather couldn’t have been better for Eliza and Ben as they said “I do!” in front of their family and friends. Lauren and her team at ELM Events did such an outstanding job. Everything was pure perfection and I’m still on cloud nine!! I could honestly go one for days about this wedding, but I’ll just let the photos do the talking.
