There’s your classic red, white and blue shindig, often designated for 4th of July and other patriotic parties, and then there is this gem. It’s in a league of its own and it lies somewhere in the crazy gorgeous modern meets classic realm. Crafted by Calder Clark Designs, with the stunning red blooms by Blossom Events, elegant stationery by Cheree Berry Paper and the prettiest of imagery by Tec Petaja, see how an insanely talented group of vendors transformed this historic South Carolina spot into a wedding celebration built for 275 of the couple’s closest family and friends.
From the photographer… Caroline and Taylor met on a business trip with their Dads. Their first date was a bike ride for sushi on the boardwalk (back in NJ), and it was kismet. Three and a half years later, Taylor proposed to Caroline under a gazebo on the beach. They were married on the oldest plantation in South Carolina under towering live oaks with 275 of their closest family + friends.
