Stunning Southern Affair by Calder Clark Designs
August 20, 2009

We have one more absolutely lovely Southern wedding for you today by Calder Clark Designs in Charleston. But this one is even more special because it was photographed by one of our all time favorite photography studios, A Bryan Photo. This wedding is so incredibly chic...and yet it also has this air of warmth and intimacy that completely makes me happy.

Tina and Jim came to us with definite ideas on the style and feel that they wanted for their wedding. Tina was inspired by our local baker, Jim Smeal; she had seen a beautiful live oak tree cake that he had designed in the past and new immediately that we wanted him to design her cake, but to tweak it to be her own.

We chose a palette of punchy jasmine green and mocha, and used that throughout the wedding.  Her dress was Kenneth Poole for Amsale purchased from Nitsa’s in Winston Salem. Her bouquet, designed by Blossoms Events, was a beautiful gathering of white peonies, cattleya orchids, and lilac and covered in a simple ivory silk satin ribbon with pearl pins.
