Ultra Chic, Traditional Charleston Wedding
August 5, 2009

I am SO stinking excited to feature today's wedding. First of all, it's gorgeous. Ridiculously, unbelievably gorgeous. Second of all, it's the wedding of one of our very own SMP girls, Carrie, who is an absolute doll through and through. And lastly, it just happens to be Carrie's birthday, so we are doing the feature as a bit of a surprise birthday gift to her.

With that said, it was one of the easiest weddings in the world to feature because it is so, SO lovely.

The event was held in Charleston, SC and was designed by one of our favorite event groups, A Charleston Bride. We got some notes from Carrie about her big day through a questionnaire that her AMAZING wedding coordinators/designers, Carrie & Leigh (who we adore here on SMP) had her fill out...

Even though we shared the same hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee our relationship began in Charleston. While we would have had a ball with all of our friends and family in Tennessee, we wanted to keep the focus on us as a couple first and foremost. Also, Charleston is so incredibly beautiful and an ideal spot for a wedding. We knew our friends and family would have no problem taking a trip to Charleston to do some celebrating.

I was the queen of inspiration-in a bad way! Although exhausting, I had so much fun exploring all the different styles I could go with in regards to my wedding. There were some standout weddings based in California featured on SMP that ultimately inspired my direction for my own wedding. The overall theme was modern-vintage. I wanted a mix of old and new, with a twist.

We have a TON of gorgeousness on the way from Carrie's Big Day. In the meantime, I just want to give her a HUGE e-hug and let her know that all of us at SMP love that she is on our team and that we all wish her a very happy day.
