fall wedding

Jamie + Adam, Fall Garden Wedding | Augusta, GA

We always enjoy producing a wedding for one of our own! And Jamie & Adam are just that! Jamie and her sister Allie (see her Enterprise Mill wedding here!) have both helped our floral design team over the years, so when Jamie & Adam shared that they were going to get married last fall, we eagerly volunteered to be a part of their vendor team!

The couple decided that after their ceremony at Church of the Good Shepherd that their dream would be to host the reception at Jamie’s parents’ home nearby. With it’s beautiful front lawn and lush back gardens, their home was the perfect intimate location for this gathering of friends and family!

Jamie had always pictured very natural, organic-looking florals and with a fall wedding date set we knew the color palate and texture would be off the charts beautiful. Her bridal bouquet was composed of free spirit roses, burgundy and blush dahlias, scabiosa, various varieties of eucalyptus, and astrantia. The bridesmaids bouquets were much of the same but with a small, but fragrant, addition of fresh mint. Fall is one of our favorite times of year to create boutonnieres, the textures are always so fun to mix to create unique, combinations for our grooms and their guys!

Following their ceremony, Jamie & Adam hopped into a friend’s vintage car to make their way around the block to her parents’ home. Jennifer Shuford’s Tastefully Yours Catering team had prepared delicious Southern fare, while guests sipped on drinks prepared by White Horse Spirits.

From the images below captured by Laura Fulmer Photography, you can see the sweet relationship that Jamie & Adam share. We always have our couples eat privately before joining their guests to ensure them a brief time of togetherness on an otherwise very busy day. Jamie & Adam soaked up every minute of their time together before making their way to the back lawn for their first dance. It’s those moments that really make the day special.

Legends Club Fall Wedding, Augusta, GA | Rachel + Dustin

We saved some of the best for our last blog post of 2017! We are always lucky enough to have the best clients, but it is truly something special when you get to design and produce a wedding day for one of your own. Rachel used to work with our team here at Charleston Street/Greg Boulus Events (and we did her sister, Kristen's wedding a few years back!), therefore when Dustin proposed we knew we were going to have a beautiful wedding to plan in the near future!  

Dustin and Rachel are high school sweethearts that have been together for years, therefore their wedding day was a much anticipated affair! Their love for one another is palpable through the images captured below by Lauren Carnes. And Lauren agrees that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down which shots we wanted to share, as they all showcased their love (and that stunning Anne Barge gown) beautifully.

During our initial planning meeting, Rachel told us she envisioned a romantic, fall-inspired wedding. Berry and wine colored hues, soft blushes, lots of candles, were the details that flowed throughout all of her inspiration images. However she left complete floral design up to our team, knowing from past experience that they would create something truly special for her. Judging from the images below of when she first saw her bouquet, it would look like we succeeded!

The ceremony took place at Fairview Church of North Augusta, while the reception was held at the Legend's Club in Augusta. With catering by Sean Wight's team at Frog Hollow, guests enjoyed a delicious meal while dancing the night away to the tunes spun by DJ Wade all the way from Charleston, SC. It was an incredibly fun-filled evening, we love when our couples get to spend a majority of their reception dancing with all their sweet friends and family!

Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Moore! We love you two and are so, so grateful that we had the opportunity to have a hand in such a perfect day.

Richmond on Greene Wedding, Augusta, GA | Hannah + Rafy

One of the best things about being based in Augusta, Georgia is the huge community that we get to be a part of. So when our Surrey Center neighbors, Hannah and Rafy, asked us to be a part of their big day, we were more than excited to jump right into planning! We knew the celebration of this union was going to be a large affair. Both of their families are incredibly involved in their respective communities and Hannah and Rafy own small businesses themselves. Therefore the guest list was destined to be a long (and fun!) one, with guests traveling to Augusta from all over the world.

When we started our initial planning Hannah told us she was envisioning a romantic, candlelit, wedding that felt intimate despite the many guests that would be in attendance. Her and Rafy decided to book the hidden-in-plain-site venue, Richmond on Greene, only steps away from the ceremony at First Presbyterian in downtown Augusta. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to transform the once-hotel-turned-wedding-venue into the vision that Hannah and Rafy had for their big day. It is a unique space with indoor and outdoor spaces. And with their wedding falling in the middle of October, we hoped the weather would end up being perfectly mild, allowing guests to enjoy the outside veranda if they wished for a brief reprieve from the fun inside.

To take the blank-slate ballroom and make it the romantic atmosphere Hannah was hoping for, we draped the ballroom with swaths of white fabric to bring warmth into the cavernous space. Our team at Charleston Street Fine Flowers transformed the space with towering, dramatic florals and low, lush arrangements placed on champagne linen covered tables scattered with candles and mercury glass votives. Combined with some dramatic lighting, the space was completely transformed. We knew we were on to something when the venue owner walked in and said "I have never seen this place look so beautiful..." (*cue instant wedding planner happiness*).

Working alongside Jennifer at Tastefully Yours Catering, Hannah and Rafy created a Southern-meets-Mediterranean menu for their guests that honored both of their backgrounds. Inside guests were treated to multiple stations overflowing with food such as classic southern fare, Mediterranean inspired finger foods, and delicious carving stations. Outside on the veranda, Jennifer and her team manned an oyster bar, which was a huge hit with this southern crowd. The 5-tiered wedding cake was designed by Erin at Big Day Cakes, simple and beautiful with an elegant cascade of roses along the front, not to mention it was absolutely delicious as well! And with all of that delicious food, Hannah and Rafy wanted to treat guests to a signature cocktail and decided a Moscow mule was the perfect concoction.

When it came to the florals, Hannah was drawn to shades of nude, blush, and deep wine, making the color palate both rich, feminine and full of texture. Her bridal bouquet was a beautiful, wild mix of seeded eucalyptus, pale blush garden roses, deep plum scabiosa, astillbe, dusty miller, and ranunculus finished with beautiful silk ribbons to complete the ethereal look Hannah was hoping for. We wanted to do something special and different for the boutonnieres and decided to wrap them in gorgeous velvet ribbon, bringing unexpected texture to an otherwise overlooked detail. As you can see in the images below, the bouquets and floral arrangements are the first thing your eyes go to, our floral design team did a phenomenal job once again.

We were thrilled to create a day filled with love, laughter and lots of dancing. Highlights from the reception included the customized beer coozies and cups for guests, the brother-of-the-bride surprising the happy couple with a surprise performance with the band, guests playing corn hole and roasting smores out on the veranda, and Krystal burgers and Krispy Kreme as the late night snack to keep guests happy until the last sparkler was lit!

To Hannah and Rafy, we are so happy and grateful you entrusted us with your big day. It was truly an honor getting to make this day so special for you and your wonderful families. We wish you nothing but the best in your years to come!
