Sarah + James, Reserve Club at Woodside | Aiken, SC

Today we get to share some of our all-time favorite wedding images. That dress! That bouquet! That floral arbor! That bride & groom! It was such a stunning day, we really can't pick a favorite!

Sarah and James got married May 12, 2018 at the Reserve Club at Woodside located in beautiful Aiken, South Carolina. Originally from the Northeast, Sarah's family has spent a lot of their time in Woodside. Her mother and father are both incredibly involved in the community there, making it a no-brainer to invite all their friends and family from around the world to come experience our little pocket of the South!

Interior designers themselves, Sarah and Carol were such fun clients to work with! They had an eye for detail like no other, every piece of this wedding was touched by their thoughtful choices. We worked with them on developing the feel for the evening, how the day would flow from one part of the celebrations to the next. Creating a seating plan for dinner included mixing rounds and estate seating to encourage conversation and mingling among the intimate guest list. We loved the touch of blue in the linen napkins, the comfortable and stylish seating outside for guests to sit at while taking a dance break, and the ambiance from all the candlelight in the ballroom glowed beautifully in the late afternoon light.

Highlights from the day's festivities included Sarah's incredibly gorgeous Monique L'huillier gown, her all-white peony bridal bouquet, the incredible co-best man speech by James' two childhood friends (they dressed up in Revolutionary War costumes in honor of James' British heritage!), the delicious food provided by The Reserve Club, and last but certainly not least, the nonstop (literally did not take a single break) party provided by the legendary Party on the Moon

The day came together so beautifully, we could not have asked for a dreamier setting, better clients or vendor team! Thank you to Sarah, James, and their families for including us on such a spectacular day! It will forever be one of our favorites!

Lynnette + Dylan, West Lake Country Club Wedding | Augusta, GA

There are many things that we claim are our "favorite part about our job", this wedding contained most, if not all, of them. A bride with a unique design eye, an epic dance party, a sweet, supportive mother of the bride, clients who include cultural heritage moments throughout the day, a father of the bride who could not stop the waterworks, dramatic florals, perfect weather, and all of the love.

Lynnette and her mom came to us last year with some unique ideas. Think black wedding cake. No color except for the green of tropical palms. A dance band AND a Latin DJ. As soon as they laid their vision out on the table, we were all in! It sounded like too much fun!

Both the ceremony and seated dinner & dancing reception took place at West Lake Country Club, the perfect setting for this all-white and black affair. The cake was a traditional Puerto Rican brandy soaked-cake made by a family friend. Lynnette was envisioning a black wedding cake with some kind of white floral, and the pop of white anenomes were the perfect touch.

Keeping with a black and white palate, we did long estate tables covered in white linen with striking black chiavari chairs. The round tables were topped with a black linen and alternatively set with crystal chiavaris. We kept the florals fairly simple in terms of design, though quite dramatic in their effect. Single-element arrangements of hydrangea, tulips, and orchids were clustered with low votives on each of the rounds, however on the long estate tables we wanted to bring some drama and height to the room. The large palm fronds, phalaenopsis orchids, and tall taper candles added texture, pops of color, and ambiance to the ballroom.

The day was a team of all-star vendors. Ashley Seawell captured the beautiful images you will see below. The dance band, Shimmer, and Latin DJ, Juan Rodriguez, did a fantastic job keeping that dance party going until the wee hours of the morning. Thank you to the Bauzas and newly-married Caldwells for letting us be a part of your day. Your family was such a joy to be around and we had so much fun celebrating with you!

Mary Hull + Patrick, Augusta Country Club Spring Wedding | Augusta, GA

In the early spring of 2017 we sat down for our first meeting with Mary Hull & her mother, Carol, to start planning for Mary Hull & Patrick's February 2018 wedding day. Over the next year, we worked with them on crafting a one-of-a-kind seated dinner reception held at the Augusta Country Club for their closest friends and family. 

Carol (with past experience as a planner herself!) & Mary Hull (an art dealer!) both have an eye for design, which makes our jobs as event designers so much more fun! We knew that this wedding would be filled with thoughtful details starting from the ceremony held at Church of the Good Shepherd followed by cocktails, seated dinner, and dancing reception at the Club.

When it came time to create a floorplan for the seated dinner, we quickly decided that mixing round and estate tables was the surest way to create a different feeling in a venue that most of the guests in attendance had been to before. The vision included long tables covered in beautiful linens, topped with florals indicating the first signs of springs. Blooming branches, lush arrangements of various heights, heirloom silver accents, and custom monogrammed menus wrapped around linen hemstitch napkins would set the mood as soon as guests sat down to their seats.

Once dinner concluded, guests were escorted by the horns of the Sol Fusion band outside to the entertainment tent for the first dance between the newly-married Mr. and Mrs. Crawford. When guests were ready to take a reprieve from dancing they could mingle in the art lounge we created inside the Club, with art on loan from some of Mary Hull's very talented friends. Late night snacks of South Carolina BBQ sliders & chips as well as the Club's signature night cap, the velvet hammer, were quickly enjoyed by guests both on and off the dance floor!

We had some of our favorite vendors on our team for this one, including our favorite Ashley Seawell Photography, the delicious 5-tiered wedding cake was by our friend Lila Greene, hair and make-up by our Surrey Center neighbors Cucumber & Mint, and Sol Fusion band kept guests out on the dance floor all night long.

Scroll down to see the full list of vendors, and the beautiful images Ashley captured of this special day. We still feel so lucky to have been included in such a meaningful day for these two sweet families. Thank you to them for letting us be a part of it!
