From Dana Cubbage Weddings… The Governor Thomas Bennett House in downtown Charleston is one of my favorite venues. Nestled in the quiet Harleston Village neighborhood, it’s one of the best kept secrets in town! Washington DC residents Chandra and Andy chose this beautiful Southern venue for their wedding on April 9, 2016 and it was the perfect setting for their elegant pastel garden wedding.

After sharing a romantic First Look together, Chandra and Andy were joined by their bridal party and families for photos before their intimate garden ceremony. Chandra has a mixed cultural and religious background, so their ceremony incorporated traditions from both her Indian and Jewish heritages which made their ceremony so unique and personal! Chandra is the oldest grandchild in her family, so this wedding was a big deal for her grandparents. Her dad’s mother traveled all the way from India for the occasion… and brought Chandra the necklace and earrings she wore on her wedding day! Such a special touch.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour both inside and on the porch of the Thomas Bennett House before heading down to the reception under a huge Sperry tent! Linen table cloths, wooden chiavari chairs, elegant white floral centerpieces, and gold votive candles created a romantic vibe for this beautiful springtime wedding.

The ladies of The Burlap Elephant did such a fabulous job with this wedding! Guests were treated to a seated dinner before hitting the dance floor… and hitting the dance floor is just what they did! It was packed ALL NIGHT and I’m pretty sure Chandra and Andy never left it either! It was an amazing evening for a wonderful couple!

Whimsical

From Jacqui Cole PhotographyEvery single moment of Sarah Beth and Josh’s wedding day was truly a joy to capture. There was so much love throughout the day you couldn’t help but smile as you saw the memories unfold.

Sarah Beth and Josh chose to celebrate their marriage at the beautiful Tampa Yacht and Country Club. This classic Tampa venue not only has stunning grounds but the ability to enjoy both dining al fresco under twinkly lights and dancing the night away in the air-conditioned ballroom! Any Florida girl knows this is the best of both worlds.

Sarah Beth got ready at her family home with her dear friends and of course their sweet family pup! The girls sipped on champagne and relaxed as the team at Salon Inga pampered them with their beautiful hair and makeup. When it came time for Sarah Beth to step into her Monique Lhuillier gown, her mum and sister were able to share a special moment by themselves. So many of Sarah Beth’s detail were meticulously chosen and almost every one had a sentimental meaning. The wedding day events map was hand painted by her father, the champagne goblets were her Grandmother’s bridesmaid gifts and the custom embroidered bag was a gift from her sister.

Sarah Beth and Josh wanted a classic, timeless wedding with neutral colors. Pops of soft lilac and organic greens added depth to their decor. The table settings were simple yet oh-so elegant. The bride and groom love the beach and chose to substitute name cards in place or hand calligraphed shells.

Sarah Beth switched into her honeymoon dress and arm in arm they exited under sparklers into their Rolls Royce getaway car. I couldn’t be happier for these two beautiful souls – it was a true honor to capture these memories!

From the Bride… I had never pictured getting married in my hometown, but after living away from home for the past 10 years, it was incredibly special to have our wedding where I grew up. Josh and I wanted our wedding to be formal and timeless but also very personal. I had always pictured an organic, romantic style for our wedding, so we used long, candlelit tables to make the dinner feel more intimate and chose mostly greenery and neutral colors with a pop of purple in the flowers. We served craft beer brewed by my uncle and had a bourbon bar especially for Josh. I have a major sweet tooth, so we had an ice cream and cookies bar served alongside the cake. My parents also helped me (painstakingly) collect and paint over 200 oyster shells to use as place cards since most of my childhood memories revolve around the water and Josh often took family trips to beaches just an hour away from Tampa, despite growing up in the Midwest.

We also tried to incorporate a lot of family traditions. We got married in the church where my parents were married over 35 years ago and had our reception at the same location where both my parents and paternal grandparents had their wedding receptions. We displayed photos from our parents’ and grandparents’ weddings at the reception and used some special family heirlooms, including my grandmother’s set of toasting goblets. On my grandmother’s wedding day, her five bridesmaids gifted her with a set of six silver goblets — one for each of them and one for her — which they used at her wedding reception. After my mom realized that I happened to have five bridesmaids as well, we used them during the day while getting ready at my parents’ house. It was such a fun and relaxing part of the day that was made even more special since my grandmother couldn’t be physically present with us.

We are so grateful to Jacqui for perfectly capturing our wedding! It is so true that the day goes by really quickly, but we are thankful to have such wonderful photographs that remind us of all of the joy and love from that day.

From Mark Brown FilmsCaptured on beautiful vintage film, deep in the Georgia wilderness, at the stunning old plantation turned wedding venue; Helen & Christian’s wedding day. Serving as the backdrop for their event was almost 100 acres of unspoiled southern wilds, simply decorated by the wonderful J. Elliot and Vinewood Plantation team in vintage features, candles, and creating high class bourbon cocktails to the guests.

From The Bride…We chose to get married in Georgia because it exudes romantic charm and timeless beauty and we fell in love with Mark’s work for the exact same reasons. Every image, every moment, every little detail tells a story that beautifully captures the ambiance of the day. Mark’s creativity and style is completely unique and we couldn’t be happier with our film! It’s more than just a wedding video – it’s a timeless memory of what was undoubtedly the best day of our life.

This Enchanted Fairytale Inspiration Has It All, Including Prince Charming

From JCG EventsWe were inspired by the venue Estancia Culinaria We wanted to capture its beauty and add a bit of enchanting mystery to this shoot. The ceremony was set under a helix dome in a forested area on the property. The concept was to design a setting that provided the impression that the couple stumbled upon this structure and decided to get married. The simplicity of the design gave it a more romantic feeling.

The invitations were designed with grey paper and gold letterpress ink with charcoal hand calligraphy. Fresh hand picked guava fruit garnished the signature cocktail drink, which were served in metallic West Elm glass coupes from the oak barrel bar. The garnish provided a pop of color and complemented the dark ethereal florals and enchanted feeling of the centerpieces. The centerpieces with a bit of an untamed wild flare, were complemented by matte black candlesticks and gray candles to complete the look. The reception was set under a Sperry tent with a collection of beautiful rustic tables, set with cocoa dinnerware with forged bronze matte finish flatware. The cake was a work of art in itself, multi-tiered with a large and dark sugar flower that provided a visual mystic at the center of the cake.

The inspiration shoot came together through all the details and everyone working together to bring the vision to life. The couple evoked the raw emotion of this enchanting storybook fairytale.
