This Is How to Make an Unforgettable Entrance

What’s better than a classic, Southern affair? A classic, Southern affair with an ombre floral walled tent! Mariée Ami and Blossoms Events used the hues of the old brick building on the reception property as inspiration for their massive instillation, and the result is an absolutely unforgettable entrance. Davy Whitener and East West Production captured the day through their lenses, and it’s all waiting for you here.

Baxter and John’s wedding was one of those weddings that everyone in the industry desires to be a part of. The bride and grooms’ love story is the classic southern girl marries her handsome marine. Their love for the low country and Carolina Panthers, along with some patriotic touches, made for a fairytale affair. DeBordieu, South Carolina is a second home for the brides’ family, and the small brick church where the ceremony took place is near and dear to their hearts. Baxter remembers sitting in the old boxed pews as a child.

The colors and design of the evening were inspired by the old brick house on the property where the reception tent was built. The team took cues from the almost pink-hued brick, which evolved into the ombre flower wall and fantastic floral installation centered in the tent. The beautiful florals, stylish linens, and soft seating vignettes created a homey atmosphere for guests to enjoy a feast of low country treats and a night of dancing. Baxter and John ended the night with a final personal touch by exiting among American flags and driving away in the bride’s family Rolls Royce.
