Stunning Southern Affair by Calder Clark Designs, II
August 20, 2009

I am la-la-loving today's first featured affair. Actually, I love anything that Calder Clark of Calder Clark Designs in Charleston does and when you pair that up with the genius that is A Bryan Photo...the result is TOTAL perfection!

I actually had the pure pleasure of meeting Calder when I was in Charleston for a wedding and when I tell you that she is talented, I am hardly doing her justice. At the time, they were preparing a dessert bar for an upcoming wedding and it just might have been the prettiest thing you've ever seen. Plus, she gave us a cookie for the ride home, which was icing on the cake.

Anyway, back to the wedding at hand! Here are a few more details...

We designed heavy “garden garlands” to drape over the old brick columns of the carriage house lot and filled them with smilax, phalaenopsis orchids, and magnolia leaves to accent the existing evergreen landscaping at the period property.

Hung from old carriage house doors was a 50 inch wreath of the same, and creamy rose petals covered the slate aisle. We designed a few standout trees adorned with viburnum, hydrangea, smilax, and garden roses planted in wheat grass and edged with ivory satin ribbon and accented with delicate glass hanging votives. We used seagrass furniture in the dance tent and sheered the ceiling and poles with soft taupe chiffon.
